This is the Canadian version of Shock Top Shockolate Wheat. I had considered reviewing this under the US version but since I've had a chance to try both I noticed some slight differences. Much like it's American counterpart this poured a dark brown with a nice two finger thick tan head that stayed around. The nose does bring forward some roasted malt but the chocolate and vanilla notes are only in the periphery. The label says orange peel but I didn't get that at all. The taste leans more toward an average porter with some weak malt flavour and some notes of coffee and chocolate but much like the nose those are very weak and almost non-existent. When I poured this and based on it's look I actually had hopes that this might be a step up from it's American counterpart. There was a slight bit more on the nose than the American version but not enough to rescue it beyond average.

Shock Top Shockolate,

The look of it is a dark brown color. Half of a finger of head.

The smell of it: Very sweet, very smooth chocolate smell. I really did enjoy that smell.

The taste of it: Lots of carbonation,touch of chocolate with a sugary aftertaste. The over carbonation just killed the feeling.

So overall would I recommend it ? No, its a nice beer but not enough for me to recommend it to a friend or to someone else. That over carbonation inside the mouth just killed the experience you can enjoy with that beer.
