Pour out of 12 oz can, dark black pour with slightly tan head, aroma brought roasted malts, some coffee into nice caramel, sweet chocolate, some slight sweet vanilla as well into a bit of spice. Taste is bull ball-y, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt into a bit of vanilla, some slight spice, finishing fairly roasted. Just kidding, I really don’t get much from the rocky mountain oysters besides perhaps a bit of body? PartyFowle (954) - - DEC 6, 2014
Luscious, luxurious-looking liquid. Thick and creamy, the midnight-black ink in the glass is topped with a quarter-inch of mahogany foam. Salted caramel, milk chocolate, toasted bread, more than a little dark fruit, figgy. A hint of smoke. Something savory deep in the background, like a good steak, umami. Nice smokiness. A bit of coffee, sweet cream, cocoa powder, earthy hop bite, ethanol, pork chops, finish of raisins, coffee beans, cocoa and booze. Vanilla bean. Again, a subtle savory note. Heavy cream in the mouth. Thick body like melted chocolate, rich, more than mild bitterness. Tiny bubbles pepper the tongue; alcohol burns it. This would be a superb stout even without its ballsy adjunct. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Can thanks to adnielsen: Poured a thick black sludge with a brown head. Aroma was very roasty and malty. Taste was strong roast, sweet malt, and light saltiness, badgerben (5378) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2014
GABF 2014. Black color with a medium head. Light sour aroma. Very earthy taste with some roasty chocolate notes. I dare say I would still say a beefy flavor if I tasted this blind. Here’s a way to end GABF... mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Black pour with a khaki head. Nose is coffee, roasted malts, lightly sweet, and dry. Easy palate, coffee, dry chocolate, roasted malts, nice finish.

9/13/14. Can shared by rdixon77 while chilling at the Aardwolf anniversary party. Black pour with a small khaki head. Mild aroma, dry, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, balls (not really). Lightly tart/acidic dry stout characteristics in the flavor, with chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and lots of balls (not really). In all seriousness, a pretty decent stout, hides the ABV well, not too nutty, if you know what I mean. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2014
12 ounce can courtesy of my friend Scott. Thanks! Nice twin pack. Pours a dark brown with a thin creamy brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, minty hops and a meaty note? The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, nutty notes, sweat and shame. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
. Definitely can’t tell there’s "meatiness". and my buddy kept referring to it like it’s an actual oyster stout and comparing it to others. Nice looking oil can pour, sweet fudgy chocolate and highly roasted barley. Just a solid export style stout without the gimmick. That said, the gimmick is fun, and whoever thought of putting this in 2-packs deserves a raise. Fun beer." HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2014
On tap at Colorado Brewers Fest in June. Appearance: finger dark brown head, black color, ok lacing. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, light savory meat, roast malt. Palate: full body, soft carbonation, light bitter finish, savory oily texture. Taste: roasty sweet malt into a slight savory taste (hardly noticeable unless you know it should be there), with a medium bitter finish. Overall, surprisingly very good beer. Balance is very on par, very memorable, and very nice overall. GarrettB (1692) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2014
December 22nd, 2012 - Wynkoop’s Oyster stout is something like a Denver’s restaurant’s offering Rocky Mountain Oysters. It’s the daring item on the menu, but a cursory reading of the beer literature suggests that the oyster stout wasn’t so rare or so exotic back in darker, smoggier, more Continental days. So, I chose to perceive this less as an XTREME LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST DRINK and more as a foray into history. Except that this actually does have bull testicles in it. So, on with the show. The aroma shows no hint of uh...meat or otherwise, instead putting off a standard smell of soy sauce and teriyaki, while the palate is deep and smoky, made more so by a thin palate. There’s a little meat here, too, with mild jerky savoriness and spice, and a smoked almond flavor. Hard to believe there’s cow bits and pieces in here, but they don’t take much away from the beer. This is has a nice flavor profile of its own, with or without testicular gimmicks.
