It pours a murky brown color with an off white head that quickly reduced to a filmy layer. Doesnt have much of an aroma i could only detect some wheat, citrus and hay. Tastes like it smells, just a little better with a hint of grassy hop. Goes down smooth and refreshing and is actuallu not bad. Now this beer might please everybody but it's actually a nice easy drinking brew and I could drink a couple more honestly.

This beer is almost perfect. It pours dark brown with an thick off-white cream that quickly fades. Smell is of spice, a bit of pepper and the tiniest note of cocoa. Taste has a bitter wheat taste that fades into cocoa if you have a small taste. A larger taste more emphasizes the other flavors of the spices as well as the chili. The chili flavor gradually grows as you drink the beer. Whoever thought chocolate and chili should go together was a culinary genius.

$1.69 for a 12oz bottle @ Oades Big Ten. Brewed with midnight wheat, chocolaste malt, chile and spice. 6.0% ABV. Thick layer of yeast in the bottom of the bottom. Pours out to a cloudy ugly murky brown, forming a nice light yellow head with very good retention and lacing. Moderate carbonation. The nose is not very appealing...mild diacetyl, corn and tons of acetaldehyde with that domestic pale lager adjuncty sweetness. No real hop nose, no real spice nose. The mouthfeel is thin and watery, moderate carbonation, ~2.5 carbs. Thankfully, it doesn't taste as bad as it smells. There is a little bit of complexity here with subtle notes of roasted malts and a touch of chili spice which adds a very distant heat and a little flavor. Very mild bitterness keeps some of the weird sweetness in check. Probably the most bitter AB beer I've ever had (guessing maybe 15 IBU's) which isn't saying much.

Like driving past a car wreck, I just had to try this. Not something I'd like to repeat.

A- this one pours a hazy brown-copper color, looks almost like watery cola, small white head with no lace

S- there's some wheat, a bit of sweet malt, chipotle peppers. The whole package actually smells like chili cheese flavored Fritos, hmmm.

T- tastes line Wendy's chili, in beer form. You can taste the wheat, and a bit of the chocolate malt, the chipotle chili taste leaves just a bit of heat on the finish.

M- medium carbonation, light-medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel

O- this one just didn't do it for me. It's an interesting take and I'm glad to see them trying new things, but I won't be purchasing this one any time soon.

A - dark amber with a big, frothy, white head

S - cocoa nibs, some spices

T - cocoa, wheat, nutmeg, cinnamon

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

I think this beer is far better than any of the other Shock Top offerings. It's not tremendously flavored and it won't impressive any beer snob, but from a macro this is an intriguing beer that dares to be different. I like the addition of the cocoa and spices with a wheat base. I don't think I will buy this again, but I'm glad I tried it. I'd also like to see other breweries try something similar.

I had this in a 12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

A: the appearance is a dark brown color with orange notes with a light foamy head.
S: it smells of wheat mostly
T: the taste is ok, with a very slight taste of pepper on the back end
MF: weak body but great carbonation
O: I would probably give it a 3.25 but I can't. One of the better beers from shock top
