I poured two of these beers together into a nice big frosty mug.

A: A cloudy and very dark brown with a tan colored head. If poured hard the beer retains about a finger widths worth of head.

S: Slight roast smell and clove but only a minimal banana aroma. More than anything a nice wheat-like bread smell is the strongest.

The taste of this beer is as though they brewed it specifically for me, so good.
T: The first part of the flavor is a slightly bitter but mostly toasted bread with a hint of chocolate. The hefeweizen type taste, mainly a clove spice and slight hint of banana sweetness, comes in next blending smoothly with this sweet malty first flavor. This combined taste is homogeneous, full, and sweet. At the end a slight warm alcohol, also blends into the complex flavor leaving you with a nice warm tone.

M: There is a fairly strong amount of carbonation which I enjoyed, and the hef like, somewhat smooth, feel is also good.

Overall, I love this beer more than any other. It is sweet with a nice slightly roasted, chocolate type malt complex that is also blended with the flavors of a dark hef.

I love Bayern brews, one of the best breweries in the state of Montana for sure, i love the dark taste of the Faceplant beer, I always look forward to the end of November not only for the start of ski season, but also the release of this magnificent brew! Cheers!!

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy ice tea brown; while it creates about a finger of head, this is nowhere near what one would expect from a weizen; leaves a trace of lace behind

Smell: More spice cake than banana, with some fig and date elements, as well

Taste: Opens with the spice cake and fig elements detected in the aroma but by mid-palate, the Hallertauer hops add a nice balance; lots of spice cake elements linger all over the tongue into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Having now sampled two Bayern beers, they both seem to lack the requisite mouthfeel/carbonation elements of their respective styles, but the taste profile is rather good and I particularly enjoyed this one

Thanks, sholle, for the opportunity

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 into a weizen glass. Pours a very dark red brown, two finger fine light tan head with great retention and lacing. Looks nice. Aroma of sweet malt with a hint of wheat. Flavor is rich sweet malt and dark fruit, only slight wheat and clove weizen elements. A slight rye-like sourness, but melds with the sweet malt nicely. Medium bodied with slight creaminess. Finish is a bit dry and has a slight hop kick with lingering malt flavors. Nice flavor integration. I really enjoyed this one.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #61 (Feb 2012):

LOOK: Cloudy leather brown

SMELL: Toasted malt, dense dark bread, lemongrass, fainted roasted grain, spicy, herbal

TASTE: Smooth, silky, fullish body, malty, warming, toasty, husky, bready, biscuity, dried hay, ripe pears, slightly sweet, herbal hop, cocoa powder, dried coffee, spicy alcohol, grainy finish

This is what we in the beer-geek world would call a “malt bomb.” Explosively complex, the decoction mash is tooled here with precision to create this amazing brew with tons of malt depth. Another beer that shows that German Wheats brewed by American brewers don’t have to be clove-and-banana palate killers.

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.
