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.

Doesnít smell good. Doesnít taste very good. Not really a fan. I was hoping for more...not sure why though. I really taste and smell the chili, which makes me think of chili...weird, not very beer-esque.
*Came back and added to the overall score because it tastes a bit better as it warms. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Dark burnt tan color. Tan head. Malty weak nose. Clean but non-interesting taste, okay finish. dlihcsnatas (740) - Temple, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Poured up a brownish color with very little head. Smells of chocolate malts with a bit of grain. Taste pretty much the same with the addition of some spices. Somewhat interesting but not something I would want to go out of my way to drink again. Cousin_Larry (893) - - MAR 8, 2013
Nice pour - thin even head with deep reddish brown color. Aroma very feint. Solid chocolate flavor, but not spicy (surprising the chilis donít come out more). Gotta say I prefer the lighter wheat beers, but this oneís OK.

Watery base with some cocoa, char, malt. Spice and vegetables. An odd combination, would not recommend. hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is not too strong maybe some malts, fruits, spices and grain. Taste,consistent with aroma, this beer has a lot going on and perhaps that not necessarily a good thing. Light bodied and refreshing when cold but other than that Iíll have to say that Iím not fan. heemer77 (5355) - 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. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Draft. Pours a somewhat hazy pale orange color with a small amount of head that lingered. Aroma is sweet bread, chili pepper, and spices. Taste is like drinking spicy corn syrup, really odd. Itís not terrible but itís also not good. Too sweet and the flavors donít mesh well. I wonít be drinking this again. monk191 (1959) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Ok. Doesn't taste very different from regular shock top, surprisingly. With all the spices, chocolate and chili, you'd think that it would be a little more interesting. Seems like they held back. The result is a muddy conglomeration of flavors, with a slightly empty aftertaste. No smell at all, pours a very nice thick brown with a white head. Can taste citrus and a little bit of the chocolate. Was expecting more.
