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.

Pyobon (892) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2013
Clear reddish dark brown with nice tan head that doesn’t last. Subtle, pleasant malty aroma. Lovely palate, plenty of body, almost oily thick with a nice tingle of carbonation. Taste is rich and complex with malty sweetness and chocolates dark roast malts. Overall a great string dark beer.

ianwelby (411) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
A dark red beer with a thin, foamy head. The aroma is slight and sweet and the flavour is heavy malt and fruit but with a nice sharp, bitter aftertaste which balances it out very well. A very nice seasonal beer.

Bif (1384) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours a mahogany color with a good head that fades to ample lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts with bit of dark fruit in the background. Taste of roasted malt, some nuts and dark fruit. Mild bitterness and dry finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Very nicely balanced. Very enjoyable beer. Well worth checking out.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear amber with a creamy, beige head. Nose holds some ripe fruits, dirt, leaves. Medium sweet flavor, some bready malts, berries, plums, hints of chocolate and coffee. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, nice coffee notes, more fairly ripe, sweetened berries, nips of chocolate. Quite tasty stuff, in fact.
