Bottle; poured a dark orange with a tinge of brown. Small to medium off white head. Aroma was weak; veggies and maybe some caramel and cocoa. Flavor was strange and not expected. Mineral and veggies. No real chocolate or spicy notes for me. Not overtly bad, but somewhat of a mess.

Not much to aroma or palate, taste was ok, I enjoyed the humor in the name and the taste. A quick burst of chili pepper flavor, then very abruptly, there is Nothing! End of the World, very funny. Still low. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of caramel, bread dough, toffee, brown sugar. Taste is of caramel, wheat, booze.

Not bad for a Busch beer; can detect cocoa, pleasant party beer. Better than Bud or Miller... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

...well, dark, roasted notes. No wheat in there really, finishes slightly spicy and smoky. One of the "better" shock tops.

Tmoney99 (15043) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy dark orange color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spice and chocolate aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a medium spice finish of moderated duration. Refreshing soft beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Poured a lighter brown color with some orange highlights. Upon pouring there is a two finger off white head that has a good level of retention, eventually fading to give a nice level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweet chocolate and a caramel smell. Mixed with this is a lighter roasted malt and wheat aroma.

Taste –The taste starts out with a wheaty and roasted flavor. As the taste advances, a chocolate flavor enters the taste. The chocolate starts out sweeter with notes of a caramel nature mixed within. It then dries out some as the caramel fades. While it dries out, it again then sweetens as a citrus flavor comes to the tongue near the end of the taste. At the end a somewhat off chocolately citrus wheat flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the just below medium side with a carbonation level that is slightly higher than average. The lighter body did not go well with the chocolate flavors of the brew, but the carbonation at least made it quicker drinking by not accentuating the more off mix of chocolate, wheat and citrus.

Overall – Not a beer I would likely take on again. The flavors just did not transition or even go well with each other. Not my thing.

Bottle. Pours amber with a average off-white head. Aroma of wheat, chocolate, and light spices. Flavor of pale malts, wheat, soft chocolate, a touch of caramel and some subtle spices.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12oz bottle -

Aroma - toasted malt, super subtle chocolate (reminded me of a chocolate cola) but mostly a bland sweetness covers this aroma.

Appearance - mahogany body, 3-finger tan head, average retention, zero lacing

Mouthfeel - thin, watery, light bodied, light-medium carbonation

Flavor - light spices, light on the chocolate almost too watered down. Sapped the character right out of it.

Overall - drinkable, a ghost of what it probably was like as a high grav beer..would have liked to try that.

Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s 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.
It’s ok....Better than most shock top offerings.
