COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A meaty foreign-style stout, Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is made with Colorado base malts, roasted barley, seven specialty malts, Styrian Goldings hops, and 25 pounds of freshly sliced and roasted bull testicles. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is an assertive, viscous stout with a rich brown/black color, a luscious mouthfeel and deep flavors of chocolate, espresso and nuts. The beer sports a savory, umami-like note and a roasty dry finish. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is 7.5% ABV and 3 BPBs. (That’s balls per barrel.)

Can from LetsPour.com. Pours very dark brown with a tan smear. Aroma of treacle, dark malt and chocolate, and? Med body. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, dark malt and ? I have no idea what BTs taste like.There’s some unknown to me flavor in this. If you told me it was marine oyster, I’d believe you. Decent stout.

12 oz can (from 2 pack, of course). Pours dark brown black with a smallish fizzy dark brown head that goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy bakers chocolate and some roast with maybe a hint of salt.

The flavor is sweet fudgy chocolate with some acidic roast and a bit of saltiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, chocolate salty balls! Surprisingly good, but a bit too sweet.

Ahhhh you crazy Denver fuckheads. This is actually pretty tasty. Pour from a can. Roasted malt, nice mouthfeel, and very well done. I would like to have this next to a non balls version to see if I could pick out the umami.
