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.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Deep mahogany body with ruby tints. Generous tan head. Juicy roasted malt snout with a hint of fudginess. Chewy stouty roast, red wine creaminess and intensely roasty, bitter cocoa afters. But not at the complete exclusion of the hops. Good creamy-bitter balance. Some warming, whiskeyish booziness and redness in the face. Another winner courtesy of one of England’s finest.
