Tastes like a pepper porter left out over night. Grainy brown pour. Can taste some chocolate and pepper in the flavor which was surprising, but pretty muddled. Not horrible, I suppose, but the world may have to really be ending before I’d seek out one.

Pours a hazy murky brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is chocolatey, roasty and grainy wheat. Flavor is still a bit on the light side. More flavor than I expected but I didn’t expect much.

Bottle. Murky brown pour with a short, fizzy tan head. Aroma is soft chocolate notes, wheat, toasted grains and light spice. Taste is soft chocolate, dark bread, toasted wheat and light spice. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more chocolate, toasted wheat, cocoa, soft spice and dark bready notes.

wlajwl (3875) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Aroma is spice, a hint of chocolate and wheat. The flavor is wheat, mildly tart fruit, malts and low but lingering spicy heat in the finish. Although slightly thin, it was pretty good, don’t know if I’ve ever rated an AB beer/ale this high.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours cloudy wood-brown with a small, off-white head. Scent is light, toasted breadheel....wheat. Taste is malt, bread, dark caramel. It’s ok....Better than most shock top offerings.

bpreo (1610) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2012
It has a bizarre Steam Punk label, and a handful of random ingredients (midnight wheat, chocolate malt, and chili spice). All that included, it doesnt have much of a taste at all.

queenholly (2920) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle. Roasty wheat, dusty cocoa... extremely light aroma. Murky dark amber with a moderate beige head, light lacing. Sweet roasty malt, spice, and extremely subtle hop flavor. Medium body, light carbonation. Flavors are light and disharmonious.

Much lighter color than expected. I do enjoy the chili notes. But overall very weak flavor. Smells like bud light with chile powder added at shipping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReggieDunlap (3070) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Might have midnight wheat but it sure isnt midnight dark! Pours amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has tootsie roll chocolate notes and a bit of chili...cheap and muddled with other spice. Flavor has dry leaves, earthy bitterness, minimal chocolate, and a chili afterthought that seems out of place. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is earthy/roasty and dry.

Bottle. Ummmm, Midnight Wheat? I was expecting something, I dunno, very dark, silly me. A light old leather brown brew with amber at the edges. There is a thin khaki head that lingers. The nose is like sweet gingerbread doused in chocolate. There appears to be a hint of chili, but I am probably making that up because of the label. The taste is like musty old gingerbread with a bit of cola thrown in. There is also some hint of citrus, which is just out of whack with the rest of the brew. I think I get just the slightest faint hint of chili in the finish, along with a little bit of ashy wood. Not bad, but boring as usual from a fake micro.
