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.

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.

NosirIwont (1991) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a big beige/brown head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of nuts and a nice apple and plum mix, although plums take over as it warms. Flavour is malty with notes of nuts and plums, but feels a bit watery. Roasted and coffee notes in the finish at first, but as it warms plums and apple take over. Slightly bitter. Feels like a mix of a brown ale, a thin stout and a strong ale. 26-10-06.

Fin (7616) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled, Case purchased at Majestic, Bicester, 02-10-06. Wonderful dark brown with a nice creamy head. Pleasant warming flavoursome beer that had plenty of rich malts and fruits swishing around. The bottle describes it as having a strong nutty flavour, I’m not quite sure it was a strong nutty flavour but there was some nuttiness there. Very smooth good full bodied beer that will be even more pleasing as the nights continue to draw in.

Stefano (1884) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
Clear chestnut brown with a warm, reddish glow. Sweetish, malty aroma. Soft body, very distinct roasted malt flavours, vinous almost port-like. Lovely round and pleasant with a light, dry finish.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2006
Dark brownish with red sides. Aroma of fruits, plums, raisins, caramel, alcohol. Quite dry mouthfeel with powerful roasty taste, some cranberries and a quite definite bitterness.

johninmelb (1126) - 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.
