Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat pours to a cloudy, mahogany color with a nose that emphasizes a little bit of chocolate, some vanilla, and some toffee. There is a good level of foam on this beer if the pour is aggressive enough and it maintains its shape for a good amount of time.
This beer has a taste that combines flavors of chocolate malt, bread, and a little bit of citrus up front, with a small amount of spice. The beer is medium bodied and it finishes with a certain degree of spice that lingers for only a short amount of time.
Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat seems similar to other Shock Top products in many ways. Like the others, it does have a few good qualities, but also like the others, it seems a tad lacking overall- almost a teaser product in many ways. I like the chocolate malt flavors, but I still wish there was more and I could barely detect any chili. Only when I really searched for the chili component did I find it, in the finish, and it was rather tame.
Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat seems slightly better than other Shock Top products thanks to the slightly fuller body, but it is still lacking in a few areas. It may not be the end of the world, but those who sample this beer may very well hope for more end of the world predictions and, along with them, better beer products that use this theme.
