2.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown in color with a nice, tan, long lasting head. Minimal aroma. It has a medium-strong bitter taste that eases somewhat on the palate with a hint of spice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the description on the bottle I was lead to believe that this was going to be a brew full of flavor. I was fooled. There are the slightest hints of dark malt, chilis, and some muted spices but nothing remotely strong. All flavors are dull and muddy. The beer does not have a bad flavor, just nothing that you could call good. Pass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 Jan 27, 2013. Bottle pours clear light brown with red tones and 2 inch foamy beige head that dissipates quickly to a ring. There is a slight aroma of spice mixed with predominantly wheat smell. The elements of chocolate and spice come through more in flavour than aroma but still remains subtle. The palate is very light with a fizzy mouthfeel imparted by the chili and carbonation. The flavour is actually felt more than tasted with slight warming in aftertaste. Impressive twist on a simple wheat beer making it a good seasonal session. May have to drink a few in order to appreciate the subtle complexity. Ok I will, thanks.

Got this at one of the local placeís "get rid of crazy seasonals" sales. The box claimed there would be some chili in there, which I didnít really pick up. Way more malt than wheat, the spices arenít too overboard so you can actually have a couple of these in a row. Kind of watery for all the flavor thatís in it, like you dissolved some kind of baked good in a bottle.

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.

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

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of a somewhat off putting sourness pours a cloudy orange. Taste, well even if you hate it it is at least unique the note sadly come off as two or three good beers not so artfully blended into one confusing beer it clashes with it self and commits to little to any of it more funky sides it is also rather thin, shame it it a limited run it is fantastic to cook with if you have a few to many add it to chili or mole souse, this is not to say it is hideous at leas try it it is okay just kind of poorly executed

From the bottle. Small off-white foam that does not last long. Color is dark copper. I get a little caramel from the aroma. I cant taste the chocolate or spice in this. Bland and boring.

Disappointing. Tastes as if a bunch of otherwise outstanding Shock Top brews were poured together into a vat and mixed up into a zombie. Muddled, with a weak and watery taste, though with a somewhat pleasant, stout-like flavor up-front. Clean & watery finish, with coppery aftertaste. I would prefer to drink something else at the end of the world.
