3.45/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: pours cloudy but an appealing bright amber color with a decent 1-inch or so head that sticks around.
S: complex aroma reveals cloves, chocolate, caramel, nutmeg, orange and pepper
T: starts with caramel malt, finishes with a slight peppery taste. In the middle an unusual fruit flavor almost like roasted mango (imagine). Took a few tastes to nail that down and still unsure.
M: full texture; creamy

3.08/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Mahogany hue with a one finger white head. No lacing.

Aroma: Light caramel malt and some chocolate.

Taste: Like a light brown ale. Malty with the flavor of baker's chocolate. A little watery. Don't really taste any chili.

Mouthfeel: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: High on ingredients and low on flavor. Would I drink this again? No.

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.
