Shock Top Shockolate Wheat
Screw you guys for hating me for checking out Shock Top Shockolate Wheat, a Belgian-style wheat ale aged on cocoa and vanilla beans, and with natural flavors and artificial sweeteners. Yum! This was "specially crafted for the season," which I'm guessing is winter considering a few snowflakes on the label (Miami problem). 4.3% alcohol.
Cocoa powder and vanilla for an aroma. This totally tastes like a chocolate cola! Noticeably flat right from the start though, and I hate my soda flat (and beer too)! Very smooth. Vanilla is noticeable though not a big player. A little sweet but not overdone. Which leads to a bland cocoa finish.
Not very flavorful. Wife said, "so-so, doesn't taste like anything!" Not unpleasant but very boring and double-very forgettable! I dumped the rest (not worth the calories).
