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.

Ungstrup (29081) - 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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) 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. An excellent choice for people who doesn’t like their Christmas beer too heavy. 111105

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2009
Bottled (thanks to the craziest bartender ever!) Deep reddish brown colour with mediumsized creamy off white head. Aroma is spices, some nuttyness, rather sweet caramel malts as well as some underlying syrupy sweetness. Flavour is nutty, caramel malty and has some spices as well. Some mild notes of fruits as well as pine too. Pleasant and balanced HN product.

Dark beer. Pleasantly malty with a hint of marmite. Not bitter. Some unpleasant eggyness in the finish detracts.

Dark color. Malty and a bit fruity aroma. Malt, with caramel, strange fruitness. Too simple.
