Bottled, Pasteurised.
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.

Joakgust (1274) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2008
A dark deep red beer with a good brown head. Aroma is rather sweet with hints of fresh fruits and malts. Flavor is roasty malty with notes of coffee, nuts with a nice dark bitter chocolaty finished. Stands out from most X-mas ales in a pleasant way.

Pours dark plum into an English pint. Nice off-white head recedes leaving sheet lacing. Malty caramel aromas. Dry and earthy with caramel upfront and a lasting sour bitter finish. Similar to an HSA...

(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Dark ruby colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, nutty nose with notes of dark fruit and wild berries. Malty taste with dark fruit, dark rye bread, chocolate, nuts and a balanced bittersweet finish. Medium body with a rounded, smooth malt character. Fairly sweet. An excellent example of a nice winter warmer.
