The Label says "Ale brewed with midnight wheat , Chocolate Malt, Chili and Spice."
A hazy brown colored beer with not much head formation at all.
Smell is a little sweet with a wheat cracker aroma. Scents of chocolate and vanilla and fruity chili pepper. Scent is decent and better than I had hoped.
Starts out mildly sweet with a bit of a toffee flavor. Decent bitterness and a fruity chili pepper taste with a little heat. Not strongly flavored but certain is bad tasting. Little bit of warmth in the stomach from the peppers and not the alcohol level. Mild chocolate and vanilla flavors.
Mouthfeel is full and slick.
Overall not an outstanding Chili beer, but I'm going to finish the six pack and could see ordering this if nothing better is available. Probably the best beer in the AB Shock Top beer Series.

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.
