A Colorado brewery’s newest stout features an unusual list of ingredients: roasted barley, hops, sea salt, local malts and bull testicles.
What started as an April Fool’s joke is now the Wynkoop Brewing Company’s latest brew, the Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout, the Daily News reported. Flavored with 25 pounds of bull testicles, a local delicacy in Colorado, the beer was thought up originally as a hoax. But when beer bloggers and customers requested samples, brewers decided to give bull testicle beer a try, the Daily News said.
Wynkoop describes Rocky Mountain Oyster as a slightly viscous, deep-brown stout with hints of chocolate syrup, Kahlua and expresso flavoring, along with a savory umami-like note.
The brewery will debut its newest beer at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver from Oct. 11-13.
