Appearance: Deep amber in color, nearly opaque, with a fairly large, dense tan head, which retains very well, with scattered Belgian lacing.

Aroma: Complex aroma of wheat, chocolate, vanilla, earth, and pepper.

Taste: Opens with spicy wheat notes, and abundant bread and toasted malts, and caramel notes. As the taste progresses, bitter cocoa notes and pepper make themselves known. Late in the taste there is a mild, lingering herbal hop wave, and a flourish of pepper, which brings the taste to a graceful close.

Mouth feel; Smooth, soft, rather pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Rather offbeat, but not bad. I would not mind having this again. It goes to show that Anheuser-Busch has no lack of brewing talent, too bad that they so seldom employ it to produce interesting beers.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

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.
