Twelve Days is a dark brown strong beer brewed for Christmas. A finely balanced ale, lightly hopped with a strong malt and nutty flavor. The strength gives the beer a smooth lingering aftertaste. A definite ale to savour.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of dark roasted caramel, toffee and raisins. Taste is light roasted malts, lots of liquorice and dark chocolate. Suitable dry bitterness from the hops and roasted malts. Easy to like this one, caramel and liquorice heaven.

floydian1 (1032) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 23, 2012
500ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Deep brown pour with a stable tan head that laces well. Nose of caramel, burnt brown sugar, dried dark fruits and a hint of nuttiness. Lovely smooth malty mouthfeel and taste without being too sweet. Low hop bitterness at the finish. A nice dark ale that knocks spots off Tooheys Old.

Pours a dark copper brown. Aromas of dark malt and some hops. More interesting in the mouth with some bitter chocolate, nuts, rye bread, and more dark malt. Good balancing hops, and very dry and crisp. Good English style Christmas beer.
