Just when you’ve thought you’ve brewed with everything… Enter bull testicles! Wynkoop Brewing Company in Denver, Colorado definitely made me smile with this new recipe. There are literally 25lbs of bull testicles in this 8 barrel batch of Foreign Export Stout. The recipe started as an April Fool’s joke, but later bloomed into the “Ballsiest Beer Ever.” So how does it taste? Here’s a description posted on their webpage.

Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is an assertive foreign-style stout, slightly viscous, with a deep brown color. It has equally deep flavors of chocolate syrup, Kahlua, and espresso, along with a palpable level of alcohol and a savory umami-like note.It finishes dry and roasted with a fast-fading hop bite.

Either way, please refrain from bringing any testicle beers to our next homebrew competition at Great Fermentations or you may be the only one drinking it 😉
