Into a pint glass. Finger and half of head, hazy copper colored body. Head retreated quickly. The smell is off-putting; metallic, and a bundle of mixed up spices. Weird. Watery taste, chocolate and wheat. The chili comes at the end, but it is very faint. The chocolate mixes really strangely with the wheat. Soft and smooth texture. The feeling was the best part of the odd beer. Just a strange drink with a mixed smell and taste. Did anyone at AB try this before it went to mass production?

Pours dark brown. Tan head disappears quickly. Smell is of wheat and some chocolate. Taste is the same. Smooth. Not my favorite but still good.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Brown and opaque. It smells a little like chili. Not much chili flavor. It is kind of muddled. Not great.

Normally I wouldn’t ever reach for any kind of shock top but this time they fooled me into it. Pours a dark amber color with a white head that dies crazy fast. Aroma is weak chocolate and spice, a bit of fruitiness. Taste is sort of dunkel with a small chili hint in the back of thhe throat, lame brew from shock top, damn them and their trickery.

Bottle. Murky orange amber pour with a small head. Aroma and taste o chocolate malt and chilies / peppers. Moderate palate. Better than I was expecting.

Reid (1848) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2012
12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope store in S.Salem. $1.33 Nice enough looking dark amber ale with a light tan head. Smell is pleasant also milk chocolate,bread and pepper. Taste smooth,milk chocolate,wheat and some peppery heat in the back,not that bad! Nice palate..keeps the thing together well. An alright beer.

Best Shock Top yet, though that really isn’t saying much. Nice malt presence and just a hint of chocolate and chili pepper, though no heat at all from the latter.

Decent head, brown color. Palate is thin / fizzy. Not much flavor or aroma. On par for most AB offerings.
