Ballsiest beer ever...

Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout... 

And, (I'm not kidding) it is going to be sold in stores...  in pairs.

Haven't had the balls to try this one yet, kinda skeptical. Anyone tried it? Is it any good?

Isn't this old news?  I thought this beer came out around GABF?

Would probably be better in a Nut Brown Ale...

Larry Bell had a Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout at his talk, 2003 NHC in Chicago. It was drinkable, it was a stout, not sure what the RMOs brought to the beer.

Some could not drink the sample.

That's why he shouldn't have told them the secret ingredient until they were halfway through the sample  ;D

Just tried Porterhouse Oyster Stout (Dublin) over Christmas.  It was good.   Everyone liked it.  There was nothing fishy or oyster like in the flavor to me, but it had a nice complexity.  But if you guys are scared... :D

Oysters in beer....cool, whatever.

Bull Testicles in beer....notsomuch.  I am not a fan in weird stuff in beer for the sake of out weirding the next guy.

At any rate, I prefer my beer somewhat vegan.  Even isinglass seems like sort of bad practice these days.

It just seems that some of these ingredients are just attention grabbers.  You could really put a tiny bit of anything in your beer and say "beer brewed with -fill in the blank" and if you didn't put enough in to effect the flavor you would leave people amazed that you could make beer with "that".
