3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky copper with little to no head. Aromas of faint chocolate and some roasted malts. Flavor has a good bit of cheap chocolate, some chili spice thrown in, which is an odd touch, and some bubble gum thrown in which is where the wheat combination seems to fall, followed by a watery finish. Has more complexity than I was expecting but considering I got this out of curiosity, I’m not upset by any stretch that I only have one bottle. This is far beyond what most macros create but considering a macro made this, I can give them some credit. Hopefully just because they call this the "End of the World" and it seems they have put more effort into it than most every mass distributed beer that InBev has ever produced, doesn’t mean it really is the end because I was never thinking I’d taste a beer this interesting from the big boys. Only thing is, is that it still isn’t that good....

12oz bottle poured into glass. Poured a small bit from my brother’s glass. If I get anything from this beer it would be the chocolate flavors. Not a ton but mostly chocolate.

Pours a brown copper color. Sweet aroma. The individual flavors are difficult to distinguish. Some faint chili at the end. Not bad, but I wouldn’t go searching for it.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
