Pours in grand American fashion! Very cloudy dark amber with a massive frothy head. Aroma of dark wheat. Let it sit a while and this turns to old vegetables. The flavor is bitter dark wheat malt followed by chocolate and some chili spice. This beer goes from good to bad and back to good again. Good job anhueser bush in bev aka shock top. Could have fooled me, but didnít.

12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy brown-orange with a medium collapsing beige head that leaves a little lace. Aroma consists of generic beer, cinnamon. Taste is sweet and a bit savory with typical Shock Top/Blue Moon spices. Iím not getting too much chili--there might be a faint burn in the back of the throat, but itís barely detectable. Mouthfeel is creamy and the carbonation is soft. Probably the best Shock Top Iíve had, but you can tell they were playing it safe here. They could have amped up the chili more and made a real off-the-wall brew, but AB/InBev is all about not pushing any kind of envelope. Still, this is not too bad.

wxman (1417) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pours a hazy orange/amber with a pale tan head that is quite full. Aroma is roasted wheat and spice. Taste is dark buttery caramel, sweet malt, biscuits and a hop bitterness that is assertive but doesnít dominate. Pretty decent effort.

freekyp (1483) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Mild powdered cocoa and wheat cracker are evident in the aromatics. Pours a hazy chestnut brown with a two finger beige head. Carbonation is lively adding some zing to the mouthfeel. Balanced earthy flavor profile with light chocolate malts taking a leading roll, then fading to allow some bittering hops to creep in towards the end if the swallow. A quality quarter equally at home with a space chicken dish as it is during a session on its own.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2012
12 ounce bottle- Poured out a fine caramel red with a strong, wheat colored head. Aroma was straight yeast with no hint of the promised chocolate or malt. Taste followed suit. Not bad, not great.

Onslow (1151) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Cloudy dark amber/brown brew with small head. Aroma of chocolate and peppers. Taste follows aroma - a little chocolate at the start and pepper in the finish, not a whole lot in between. Average palate. OK but hits me as rather unpleasant.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle from Kroger. Medium pour with an off-white head. Aroma is musty grain and brown sugar. Taste is metal, raisins, and ugh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmohno (1063) - Iowa, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Heady hazed orangish brown. Some chocolate in aroma with some tinny buttery english. Taste is foamy body ,englisy,tinny,some chocolate,some slight heat in finish but dry and clovey harsh finish.Maybe cinnimon but its like having harsh powdered spices in your mouth.Ever tried cinnimon without sugar on toast? KInda like that but not that extreme.

Bottle. Hazy copper with an off white head. Wheaty and sweet malty base, light chocolate, spices, and believe it or not, a little bit of chili pepper heat in the finish. Pretty good.
