Dark reddish brown, but not opaque by any means. Creamy head is slight, but lingers around glass edge. Nose is malty and attractive. Highly malty on tongue with some flavors of darker fruits like raisins and cherries. Small hints of dark chocolate. Carbonation sticks on tongue and has silky, creamy texture. On the strong and thicker side. Overall, a great winter brew that I would buy again anyday, especially considering the price.

To quote Lloyd Christmas, "I like it a lot." I have enjoyed Face Plant on tap and from bottles during my last two Montana ski trips. Both versions pour nicely, with about a inch of foamy head that does not hang around. The strength of this beer is the taste - wheat, dark malt, and what I can only describe as "Cadbury Fruit and Nut Bar." I enjoyed this on a chilly New Year's Eve while watching he torchlight and fireworks.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a brownish color with a one finger head of a tan colored foam floating atop. The head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a caramel sweetness mixed with a decent showing of a wheaty and toasted malt smell. Along with these aromas comes some other lighter chocolate and toast smells adding a bit more roastiness to the aroma as a whole. Other darker fruit aromas of cherry and raisin are there as well adding a touch more sweetness to the smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet and malty flavor with the mix being of some toasted malt, a little bit of wheat, and a rather decent showing of caramel. Some other flavors of a dark fruit nature are there as well enhancing the other flavors nicely. The dark fruit start out almost entirely of a raisin taste, but as the taste moves on, it gains a bit of a cherry flavor as well. The wheat grows stronger and stronger as the taste advances with the increase in the fruit and a little bit of more roasted malt tastes coming to the tongue, one is left with a nice sweet and malty taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the darker and roasted flavors of the brew the feel is good and accentuates the flavors rather decently.

Overall – This is a quite tasty doppelbock. Not super wheaty, but smooth, sweet, slightly fruity and rather easy drinking. And for the nice price, this is a good winter go to.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a standard pint glass. The bottle has a freshness date of May 2013 (reviewed on April 16).

Appearance: pale reddish brown with a 1/8 inch tan colored head with minimal lacing. Thin strands of carbonation rising to the surface. Lovely swirls as the head recedes- reminiscent of a spiral galaxy or a caramel roll.

Smell: malty, fruity with a hint of apple. Quite subdued, with barely a hop aroma.

Taste: Malt bomb, baby! Deliciously complex, with herbal spice, subdued bitterness. The aftertaste is of spice, warming alcohol, maybe a little brown sugar, and a slight bit of sourness. Possibly some diacetyl. The hops are present, but allow the natural sweetness and bitterness of the malt to come through.

Mouthfeel: Crispness, lingering, even down into the throat, giving a brief feeling of fullness in the stomach.

Overall: I've been drinking Bayern beer since the 80s, and have never been disappointed. This genuine brewmeister makes the best lagers in this region, hands down- and perhaps in the entire country.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a weizen glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Two finger light brown head, small bubbles, but a fluffy head. Decent retention, chocolate brown color with high clarity considering the darkness.

S- Toasted malts, some chocolate and roast smells. Warm malts, very low hop profile until the end of a good sniff.

T- Somewhat bitter with a strong toasted malt backbone to calm down the bitterness of the hops.

M- Thick, wet and sticky feel.

O- Not my favorite style, but not bad by any means. Balances the hops and sweet malts well. Above average. Enjoyable.
