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.

Pours a dark copper brown. Aromas of dark malt and some hops. More interesting in the mouth with some bitter chocolate, nuts, rye bread, and more dark malt. Good balancing hops, and very dry and crisp. Good English style Christmas beer.

WVHouseofBeer (868) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Poured a very dark brown color with a frothy khaki head. Nice aromas and flavors of toffee, caramel, nuts and maybe a little bit of chocolate. Body is a little thin. Sweet and chewy finish. Very good beer.

Lagerboy (1290) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear deep ruby copper, fine tan foam settles and lasts. Aroma is vinous fruity, malty. Taste is darker roast caramel/toffee malt, some dark fruitiness, slightly nutty, no bitterness. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Lighter Christmas fare in September. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

ThirstyBird (1663) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The smell is molasses, caramel, dark fruit. The taste follows the nose,with some dark malt sweetness with some roast and slightly dry ending. The body is medium with average carbonation.

Tuxford (13) - - JUL 19, 2014
A highly sessionable beer. Not too much in the way of aromas, but a well balanced taste of malt and hops, that refreshingly carries right through the palate.
