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.

johninmelb (1124) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
Rich, heady nose. Pours very dark amber with a firm cream head. Flavour is complex with dark notes being balanced by some vinous, sherry-like sweetness. Finish is pleasingly astringent on the back of the tongue, with a lingering citrus and honey malt. Very nice indeed.

harrisoni (13253) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
500ml bottle from Cask and Glass, Tonbridge. Dark ruby with dark beige head. Good dark fruit, damsons, plums, dark toffee, touch of herby hop. More toffee in mouth. Sweetish beer with some boiled sweet. Good dark beer, wih some bitter choc/coffee. However, would be excellent in live in cask

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2006
A deep red beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet spicy and fruity, with some notes of nuts and wood - but a little light for my liking. The flavor is very sweet with notes of toffee, fruit, and nuts, and then turning to hard roasted malt, giving it a dry bitter end. The mouthfeel is very smooth.
