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.

Bottle - Vintage 2004 (Traded at the brewery late Oct 2004)
Label says: A strong dark beer, originally brewed for the festive season. Maris Otter Malting Barley, Fuggles Goldings and Challenger Hops, with a handful of Chocolate Malt, combine to give a robust, dark ale.
Dark brown in color and a rich head. Plums in aroma. Plums, raisins and nuts in taste. Fullbodied and quite sweet and nice for a cold winters day. A roasted finish with a hint of chocolate/nougat. Very good for a UK bottled beer.

WVHouseofBeer (921) - Tallahassee, 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.

Cantabrian (919) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2013
Tummy bug brown, with no mentionable head. I had it too cold, so there isn’t much I can say about the aroma. Flavour is woody, with plenty of alcohol, actually quite interesting, with a hoppy bitterness that lingers for a long time in the mouth. Medium bodied, it has plenty of carbonation. Must be consumed at a proper temperature, much higher than straight from the fridge.

Clear dark ruby copper color with some orange hues and a small off white head. Aroma is faint burnt caramel and some fruit . Flavor is crystal malts with some spicy notes. A tad too sweet

Bottle (damaged notes from the flooding of my basement). Sweetish aroma...all I could read.

500ml bottle served cellar cool in a 1/2 pint chalice for topping up. Dark ruby with an offwhite head.Nutty aroma, smooth slick mouth feel, fruity flavour with a definite blackcurrant predominance. Lovely sipping beer.
