12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
6.0% ABV, 12278 on neck label.

A - End of the World pours nicely, forming a moderate off white head which disappears with almost no trace in mere moments. The beer below is rusted and cloudy, fitting the bill perfectly for the name.

S - The End of the World has a closed off aroma that's hard to discern as it's rather bland nuances are muddled together. Beyond pale malt and biscuit, what does seem to emerge though is a very faint, chili powder spice aroma on the far back end that resembles making chili. Zero hops and almost no noticeable chocolate notes come through though.

T - Soft wheat is delicate enough without being trounced by chocolate malt which is barely even there as it is. Cocoa notes and faint graham cracker come through with dirty dryness and the aroma's same chili aspect pops in on the back end adding a very slight note of spice, but this beer's flavor is just about as bland as the aroma.

M - Medium-light bodied and crisply carbonated, the body features a trace of soft wheat which smooths out the feel before it ends with a faint spice and dryness of roasted malt.

O - Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat has almost nothing going for it. The aroma and flavor are bland, barely managing to formulate a cohesive direction especially with all the ingredients they've added. This beer isn't bad per se, but the potential for it was big and Shock Top didn't deliver on any level.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, End of the World is very lightly colored for a beer that advertises "midnight wheat and chocolate malt", it's amber-brown at best. The head is thin and non-active. Rather than a nice semi-liquid yeast at the bottom of a wheat beer that you can gently swirl in, this beer has large chunky particulate that takes forever but eventually settles to the bottom of the glass - not very appealing. The nose is unremarkable for a chili and spiced beer, wheat and weak chocolate malt notes is all I'm getting. The taste is a little more interesting with some spicy notes and chili flavors coming through; seems overly bitter as a side effect from the spices. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonation is minimal, chunky bits lose points. Overall a miss by AB on this one in my opinion.
