Every Friday at 8:10am we feature a new beer and taste it. Me buddy Chad give our opinions however novice and/or snobby they may be. Why? Because it's fun, and haven't you've always wanted to try out that weird looking beer on the top shelf? So have we. We'll do it for you. Everyone wins! You can also play along at home, or simply buy after we try. Make sure you pick your beer up at Spec's. That's where we shop!
Our rating scale is SUPER simple. Anyone can understand it. It's a scale of 1 to 10.
1 = Ass Juice
10 = Unicorns and Rainbows
Depending on the flavor, packaging, hoppiness, maltiness, and pure snobbery, we place the beers somewhere on this sliding scale. Purchase the beers ahead of time, and play along!
Thank you soooo much to Revolver for coming in and being our LAST Beer For Breakfast for 2012!

They brought me their stout, 'Mother's Little Fracker,' (LOVE the name) and as you guys know, me being a hop-head, I was worried what I was going to think. But I also thought it was high-time I started to develop my palate. I mean, come ON! I do one beer show a week!
Well, I must say, I'm really proud of myself. I drank this stout with an open mind, and the results were quite startling.
If you like coffee with cream, you are much like me. My problem with stouts is my issue with chocolate. I don't like sweets or chocolate, or anything heavy. That's what gets in my way. I think this is a great BEGINNING stout beer. It's creamy, roasty, and well-balanced. We discussed that it would pair awesome with cheese or a creme brule. I COMPLETELY agree. It's not too heavy, and it definitely invites more sips. Other stouts I've come across make me pucker a bit. This is a beer that I want to keep sniffing and sipping to see what different tastes I can get out of it. Complex, but still, an easy stout for new-stout drinkers.
And now, the scores:
