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.

Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Mørkebrun. Høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Tett lacing. Svak maltaroma. Smaken litt syrlig frukt på et underlag av malt. Maltkomponenten holder seg lenge.
