Onslow (1273) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (4949) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours cloudy wood-brown with a small, off-white head. Scent is light, toasted breadheel....wheat. Taste is malt, bread, dark caramel. Itís ok....Better than most shock top offerings.

Tap: not nearly as good as it sounds from the description. That isnít to say that itís bad, though... Solid, fun beer.

DMLINAZ (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Inoffensive, though not especially flavorful, especially given the somewhat dramatic description on the bottle. Hints of chocolate, some malts, slight spices; slightly fizzy, like a lot of Shock Tops. Not much aroma; slight chocolate. The only Shock Top Iíve liked so far is the raspberry wheat, and I think Iíve had almost all of them. This "end of the world" isnít bad, but at best is middle-of-the-road.

dallam1 (7) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2013 does not count
Not bad. Dark amber in color, smooth drink. There is a bit of spice heat aftertaste. Not a very thick beer.. Medium consistency. Small hint of chocolate.

cbfobes (2731) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
How could I pass up a $2.99 sixer? Pours a dark brownish amber with a decent thick head and lacing, actually doesnít look all that bad, aroma has a little bit of spice with a tad bit of chocolate, seems pretty artificial so far, the flavor is pretty weird, kind of fruity on the front end with a slight finish of chocolate and malt, wonít be picking this up again, will maybe if it gets down to .99$ a sixer.

mikesaum (654) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Normally I wouldnít 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.

Fratto (2845) - 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

Bama_Hog1 (35) - Hoover, Alabama, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Much lighter color than expected. I do enjoy the chili notes. But overall very weak flavor. Smells like bud light with chile powder added at shipping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Roasty wheat, dusty cocoa... extremely light aroma. Murky dark amber with a moderate beige head, light lacing. Sweet roasty malt, spice, and extremely subtle hop flavor. Medium body, light carbonation. Flavors are light and disharmonious.
