COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Pours viscous and jet black with minimal coffee crema colored head. Dark roasted malt nose with some coffee and touch of vanilla to start on the nose....as it warms, there is some definite but subtle smoke and ashy char. Taste follows nose with warmth starting off dry with coffee and vanilla, then some salinity and soy for a second, and finally an almost barbeque sauce savoriness. Okay...full disclosure: I did not approach this beer without some trepidation, but once you get past this, it is a serious stout with a high degree of complexity. The ingredients demand that you pay attention and the effort is not unrewarded. Going to get more....been giving this out a lot as trade extra for the novelty, but I think this may develop nicely with some age. Kudos to Wynkoop for taking this seriously and making it more than a gimmick.

Pours jet black with thick foamy brown head. Nose of chocolate, caramel, roasted nuts, and coffee. Taste has lots going on. Salted chocolate and nuts are in front followed by a mild smoky caramel. The finish leaves a sweet almost smoked bacon flavor on your lips. Good stuff!

On tap at brewery. Pours black with small head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and minerals. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, powder sugar, dark chocolate, slight espresso, malt balls. Overall big and bold with some bitterness mellowed by strong chocolate sweetness.

On tap at the brewpub into a goblet. This is the coolest shit ever. Yea, itís obviously a gimmick, but itís a hilarious gimmick and they back it up with a delicious product. This is basically black in color. The aroma is of soy sauce, dark chocolate and espresso. Palate is hearty and gives this stout some balls. The most prominent thing of the flavor is smoky, roasted coffee, almost ashy and there is the obligatory dark cacao. The finish has hints of nuts, the nontesticular variety.

On tap at Wynkoop. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a huge brown head and great lacing. Big roast, dark cocoa, graham crackers, light vanilla, somewhat earthy, bready, and grassy aroma. Taste is cocoa nibs, espresso, briney, rich lacto flavor, earthy hops, somewhat dirty, caramel, and brown sugar with a slightly bitter/acidic bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel with sod carbonation. This is some seriously tasty stuff.

Jet black with reddish tan head. Not any profoundly unique aroma other than roast malt. Thick chewy palate. Flavors of port, tobacco and coffee with a chalky finish. Iím not really tasting any bull testicles but then again I"ve never eaten bull testicles before. But Iím not tasting any meatiness.

Black pour with a chocolate-milk colored head. Deep toasty complex aroma with bitter dark cocoa, slightly burnt toast, and a heavy tone of what I can best describe as the burnt corners of a slightly overdone grilled steak. The flavor is deep and roasty with heavy notes of bitter dark cocoa, light smoke, charred beef, and a slight earthy nuttiness (tee hee).
