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.

harrisoni (15068) - 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 (30468) - 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.

Very dark brown, almost black with a thick white head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate and liqourice. Gentle and smooth, tastes sweet but with a strong liqorice hint and a long medium bitterness in aftertaste. Perfect for the cold, winter nights.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. pretty good for pastuerised English ale. Some nice, nutty, roasty malt characters. Smooth and soft, with some citric hop bitterness in the finish, really enjoyable.
