For People With ‘Balls’: Bull Testicle-Flavored Beer
What started as an April Fool’s joke has officially become the latest ‘ballsy’ brew from Colorado’s Wynkoop Brewing Company.
The ‘Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout’ is made with Colorado-grown base malts, roasted barley, seven specialty malts, Styrian Golding hops, sea salt—and roasted bull testicles.
According to beer journalist Marty Jones, he said that the deep brown stout tasted of “equally deep flavors of chocolate syrup, Kahlua, and espresso, along with a palpable level of alcohol and a savory umami-like note.”
After releasing an April Fool’s spoof video earlier this year, the brewery met with people around the country who saw the video.
Due to their overwhelmingly positive response—the brewery decided to turn their joke into reality.
It was reported that the beer was inspired by Colorado’s most popular local dish—‘Rock Mountain Oysters’ (aka fried bull testicles).
