I'm curious what makes it past its prime? I would think a beer like that would stay in its prime for awhile, no?

Some of the flavors have faded and it no longer tastes the way I intended it to. It's not bad, just not what it was previously.

Saw this at my local beer distributor yesterday, couldn't pass it up at $15 for a case, and interesting sounding style: "midnight wheat, chocolate malt, chili, and spices" (prompting the slogan in my mind: "End of the World Ale -- this is all that's left to make beer")

Had never heard of midnight wheat, but I gather it's some kind of roasted wheat product ?

It's a really interesting brew, and although just 6% it's definitely a sipper, the flavors are quite heavy and complex. The chocolate malt and chili powder bite on your tongue are really slow to develop.

I suspect that it's not flying off the shelves though, maybe that's why the low price. Or end of season thing, it's not a summer beer.

Was not very impressed with it but then again it is Shock Top. Bad example of a midnight wheat beer, as it is pretty non existent in the flavor or color.
Anywho, starting with HB Bloody Beer and some basketball!
