COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yngwie (14715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
Bottled. Clear, deep ruby beer with an aroma of lightly burnt malt and some hops in the background. The flavor is a bit sweet and malty, with a balanced bitterness. Medium to full body and it feels a bit peppery in the mouth. A quite nice englishman. (070216)

Bottle from Asda. Pours a reddish brown clour with an off-white head; rich fruity aroma; chewy and dry in the mouth with nuts, fruit and hoppy bitterness mingling with the roasted malts; a warming finish. Excellent!

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, 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.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle, Big Bang, Oxford. Dark caramel, small layer of tan. Plumy fruit aroma, dry toast, chocolate. Soft, very pleasant. Dry caramel flavor, soft roast, a touch of coffee and chocolate. Substantial body, dry, gentle finish. A really decent porter. (Yes, it’s a porter.) Wish I could find it from the cask.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2006
Very dark mahogany colour with a nice lasting head on it. Aroma of dark plums, roasted nuts, caramel and over ripe dark berries - lovely. Quite full bodied with an almost winelike quality. In addition to the flavours from the aroma, this also has a touch of strong english licquorice. Subtle bitter finish with lasting spicyness. Me like. Me like a lot.
