3.23/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a coppery amber color with a one finger off white head that dissipates quickly.

Smells are light chocolate, caramel and a bit of peppery spice... interesting.

Taste is caramel and hints of chocolate with a little toffee... finishing with a little peppery taste.

This is a fairly good beer... i love the premise and that they are brewing interesting Shock Top variations. This is by no means a top notch craft beer... but i do not think that is their goal. A wide market and drinkability is what they are striving for and in my opinion they succeeded.

I know that this will probably receive poor reviews for the most part... we have mostly become snobs lol... but it is a easy to drink, session beer with a unique flavor. For the cheap price and the ability to session... enjoy. :-)

Just bought this the other day...Marketing and packaging are pretty great which will make sure several people at least try this beer.

I expected more from this beer. Taste is understated which is usually what happens when Macro breweries try to produce a faux "craft" beer. Can definitely taste the chocolate and
toffee...Finish is different in a good way...No clue why they said there is chili in it because I tasted just as much bacon in it as chili.

The beer is slightly above average...I like their Wheat IPA better, but do appreciate that they
keep adding new beers to this line.

3.45/5  rDev +12.4%
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 +0.3%
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.
