Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat by Anheuser-Busch InBev

Rating: 3.25/5

Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat by Anheuser-Busch InBev is a 6% ABV Ale Brewed with Midnight Wheat, Chocolate Malts and Chili Spice. I know I know….It’s an A-B product (Like Budweiser, Budlight, etc.) Interestingly enough though, I don’t turn down any beer until I give it a chance :). Besides, I’ve been waiting all year to actually try this release. While The pumpkin one just came out, this one is rare to find but will be everywhere really soon. Also, this taste a lot better colder than warmer. You would expect the opposite from more complex beers but anyways I figure I’d tell it to you straight. The fragrance of the beer is like chocolate, cinnamon, champurrado (Mexican Atole based drink made with Maza (Corn Flour)). The flavors are not too strong but for a beer that tries to introduce craft drinkers to something different and maybe something they may enjoy, it tries hard. There are flavors of cinnamon, chocolate, champurrado, wheat, orange peel, alittle bit of chipotle chile flavor, but very little, pilsner grains, and nutmeg. I think the wheat and pilsnery flavors over power the rest of the chocolate, cinnamon, chile and chapurrado flavors. Other than than, it is a decent beer. I think if you are really looking for stronger Chocolate, Mole, Champurrado and some more chile spiced beer try the New Belgium Mole Ole Ale or other chile chocolate beers. I would say give it a try once. Simply because the Idea that they would try to deliver a craft beer that is decent is worth a try. Especially a chocolate/Chile/Belgian White Hybrid. They really pushed the whole “End of the World” thing all year to come out with this beer. You be the judge of this and let me know what you think. I found this at Ramirez Liquor but it will surely hit shelves all over as soon as the fall season hits its peak. Was definitely worth trying at least until the End of the World comes 😛
