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.

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

Leighton (18527) - 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.

Bottle. Amber color, offwhite head. Leather aroma,a bit strange and not what I want from a beer. Spicy leather flavor, some fruits, maybe some caramel.

harrisoni (17282) - 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

Theydon_Bois (16879) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle at home, 27/05/16. Rich chestnut to mahogany brown with a decent beige cap of bubbles that retains well. Nose is rich malt, straw, grain, toffee, dark fruit esters, light spice. Taste comprises fruit loaf, dates, brown sugar, brown bread, light spice, treacle toffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with balanced bitterness. Decent flavoursome English Strong ... goes well with cheddar.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
Bottled. Clear, deep ruby beer with an aroma of lightly burnt malt and some hops in the background. The flavor is a bit sweet and malty, with a balanced bitterness. Medium to full body and it feels a bit peppery in the mouth. A quite nice englishman. (070216)

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
Dark brown with a thin head.  Aroma is malty, almost almondy with a slightly fruity accent.  Sweet character, a brown ale with nutty character and a touch of dryness in the finish.
