It has a bizarre Steam Punk label, and a handful of random ingredients (midnight wheat, chocolate malt, and chili spice). All that included, it doesnt have much of a taste at all. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2012
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. 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.

Might have midnight wheat but it sure isnt midnight dark! Pours amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has tootsie roll chocolate notes and a bit of chili...cheap and muddled with other spice. Flavor has dry leaves, earthy bitterness, minimal chocolate, and a chili afterthought that seems out of place. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is earthy/roasty and dry. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Ummmm, Midnight Wheat? I was expecting something, I dunno, very dark, silly me. A light old leather brown brew with amber at the edges. There is a thin khaki head that lingers. The nose is like sweet gingerbread doused in chocolate. There appears to be a hint of chili, but I am probably making that up because of the label. The taste is like musty old gingerbread with a bit of cola thrown in. There is also some hint of citrus, which is just out of whack with the rest of the brew. I think I get just the slightest faint hint of chili in the finish, along with a little bit of ashy wood. Not bad, but boring as usual from a fake micro.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Bottle. Dark roasted malts. Lots of wheat. 6% beer was way bigger than I would have thought. Not as big a fan of this as the pumpkin. kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Pours in grand American fashion! Very cloudy dark amber with a massive frothy head. Aroma of dark wheat. Let it sit a while and this turns to old vegetables. The flavor is bitter dark wheat malt followed by chocolate and some chili spice. This beer goes from good to bad and back to good again. Good job anhueser bush in bev aka shock top. Could have fooled me, but didn’t.

12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy brown-orange with a medium collapsing beige head that leaves a little lace. Aroma consists of generic beer, cinnamon. Taste is sweet and a bit savory with typical Shock Top/Blue Moon spices. I’m not getting too much chili--there might be a faint burn in the back of the throat, but it’s barely detectable. Mouthfeel is creamy and the carbonation is soft. Probably the best Shock Top I’ve had, but you can tell they were playing it safe here. They could have amped up the chili more and made a real off-the-wall brew, but AB/InBev is all about not pushing any kind of envelope. Still, this is not too bad. wxman (1820) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pours a hazy orange/amber with a pale tan head that is quite full. Aroma is roasted wheat and spice. Taste is dark buttery caramel, sweet malt, biscuits and a hop bitterness that is assertive but doesn’t dominate. Pretty decent effort.
