COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This top-fermented, unfltered Wheat Bock beer is the counterpart to Bayern’s famous Doppelbock Lager. Bayern’s only decoction-brewed beer, the recipe uses five types of malt (Wheat, Pilsener, Carmel, Munich and Chocolate), and has an o.g. of > 17 % Plato, producing a stout 7.5 % Alc. by Vol. As with all Bayern wheat beers, Face Plant surprises with its complex flavor. German Hallertauer Perle hops give this hearty Bock beer a perfectly balanced sweetness.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Pours dark brown, medium sized beige head has decent retention. Aroma of dark fruit and dough. Taste is pretty sweet, lots of dark fruit again. The yeast gives some funk and the hops an herby balance to the sweetness. Very good beer and not even a hint of 7.5% alc. Thick texture, soft carbonation.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle: Pours a dark brown color with a nice tan head. The nose is malty with some light roast and sweet wheat esters and raisin notes. The flavor has a thin impact with a sweet roasty note in the tail. Not very balanced, but the big body and high alcohol make for some exciting highs in the tail. Nice roast.

Bottle thanks to jake65. Thanks buddy. Poured a dark and hazy burnt orange with a 1/2 finger creamy khaki head, fantastic retention. Left lots of lace. Aroma was lots of wheat, a tinge of caramel sweetness and some earthy hops. Drinks super smooth. Flavors consisted of some wheat, a bit of bready malts and some caramel sweetness. Excellently balanced throughout. This was surprisingly super refreshing. I may just have to look more into this style as I wasn’t too familiar with it coming in. Well done.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle… Hazy dark ale that displays burnt orange when held up to bright light. Mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Fantastic retention. The restrained aroma is deeply roasted with a whisper of caramel, but is somewhat nondescript. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Roasty, toasted grain flavor with light caramel. Crisp, malty finish. Not flashy, but well made and perfectly balanced. Bottle courtesy of jake65!

jake65 (2594) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Bottle: Dark leathery brown with a bubbly beige head. Smells malty, husky, and grainy. Light florals. Lots of carbonation at first and brisk. Mellows out after a few minutes into a toasty, caramel, toffee, and floral piece. Light yeast presence. Finish is dry and somewhat grassey.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Received single 12-oz bottle from trade with 5000. Pours a semi-clear dark brown colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, a hint of chocolate, fruit, some caramel and a touch of banana esters. Taste is quite complex, medium to full bodied, with flavors of chocolate, banana esters, a hint of clove, toffee, some cotton candy, and a touch of blackberry. Finish is slightly dry and has a mild bitterness at first and then a chocolate, brown sugar and banana aftertaste. A little alcohol presence in the finish but not overpowering. Hope to see this beer again next winter.
