Colorado’s Wynkoop Brewing Company is introducing a new and unique beer made with bull testicles. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout started out as a joke in an April Fools spoof video, but after a positive response and lots of interest they decided to turn it into a reality.

Bull Testicle Flavored Beer, Anyone?

The company says that Rocky Mountain Oysters (a.k.a fried bull testicles) are arguably Colorado’s most popular local dish. They are sliced by hand and then roasted before being added to the beer, which is also made with Colorado-grown base malts, roasted barley, seven specialty malts, Styrian Goldings hops, and sea salt.

Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout has a deep brown color and is said to feel slightly viscous, with 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. Head brewer Andy Brown said:

We’ve been making ballsy beer for the past few years and this is great proof of that.
