2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an unclear, murky amber/brown with medium head and some spotty lacing. Smell is grain, faint chocolate and pie-like spices. Taste is actually quite bland given the ingredients and mediocre smell. Shows some mild spice, cocoa powder. Weak palate. Overall, neither worse nor better than my expectations. A different spin on a below average line of brews.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep reddish brown. Frothy head reducing to soapy. Aroma of wheat and light spices. Didnt get any chocolate really. Not the most flavorful beer. Light to medium body. Props for the concept.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized dark auburn colored bubbles that were and left behind a semi-transparent light brown colored body. The mild aroma was wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild pleasant flavor contained notes of wheat and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wheat aroma comes to the nose. Cloudy copper/amber color with a decent foam. Chili and spice overtones with a caramel and wheat background. Overall, not very good quality. Tastes pretty unbalanced. Not the last drink Iíd like to enjoy before the end of the world.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty and has a firm dry hay note. Pours a dark, slightly hazy chestnut with a thick pale tan head. Wheaty flavor has hints of cloves and chocolate, quite tasty. Texture has about average body but good fizz. End of the World? Not today!

Next to nothing for me on aroma. Flavor is interesting with the chili, but overall nothing to write home about. Not bad, but not good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I like the amount of malt content with a good amount of wheat and nuts, very little hops and a bit astringent.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Kevin: Pours a dark, rusty orange, pretty cloudy. Thick white head. Aroma of hay, doughy yeast, pretty much smells like an Ameriacan lager. Taste is about the same. I really donít get much of the malt, spice or chili that the beer is supposed to be brewed with. Good marketing campaign, very average beer.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy dark ruby/amber with some big chunkies and a half finger of white head. Aroma is mostly malt. Loads of caramel and chocolate. A little dirty grain and just a hint of spicy pepper. Taste is light bitter. I get the wheat and chocolate with a hint of spice. Some light herbal hops on the back end. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation but a decent finish. Overall, not bad. By far the best Shock Top out there.
