750 cc bottles from Capone’s and Blue Dog. Pours translucent mahogany, more toward deep copper, with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, mild hops, nuts. Tastes caramel malty, rich, with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and finishing hops. Got mild oak in this, too. Overall this is another solid beer from Telegraph.

Tap. Pours clear chestnut with a medium tan creamy head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is very spicy, with notes of allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee. Flavor is super spiced, hard to find a beer in there, sweet with a mild zesty bitterness. Medium body. Pleasant enough, but not really a beer. I was getting tired of it after four ounces.

Pours a nice Brown with a tan head..spicy aroma of cinnamon, allspice and plenty of dark Belgian notes. Taste is very similar. Alot of spice going on here. I enjoyed this style, but it could be toned down a little overall.

weihenweizen (3012) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2012
75 cL bottle batch 95 from the beer of the month club. Pours clear dark brown with fluffy light brown head. Light body, highly carbonated, and allspice aroma. Taste is light roasted malt, allspice, some cinnamon, some bakers chocolate, some chiles, and herbal hop finish. This is darker than I expected, pretty light tasting, and different, but nothing I will seek out.

Bottle courtesy of the Rare Beer Club. Served in a mug. Pours a deep brown color with a thin light tan head and a bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose carries a bit of chile and spices plus a slight metallic note. A bit of roast as well. Flavor has spice and a dosing of chile heat. Light chocolate and roast. Medium body with good carbonation. A little bit to it with a semi-sweet finish. Nothing too off, but not particularly enjoyable.

Taste is peppery and slightly spicy with more cinnamon notes, caramel, light cocoa, toasted malt and gingerbread cookies. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation. Faint lingering heat from the peppers. Ends with more spicy pepper, big cinnamon, caramel, faint chocolate, cocoa, and hints of gingerbread.

Pours a fantastic medium brown with 1 finger. The aroma is of brown sugar and a great Belgian spice! Taste follows the nose. Thus us just a great winter warmer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
