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.

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.

Bottle with Andrew and Carla. Pours a clear medium brown with long lasting frothy foam. Smellls a slightly sweet and bitter with hints of nuttiness. Tastes nutty with hints of alcohol and coffee.

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.

Scipio (727) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours a deeper brown with an average beige head. Aroma is more heavy and malty, consisting of caramel, nuts, fig, and some slight spice notes. Roasted. The taste is pretty much what I was expecting from the nose. It is more nutty here and the I do get a bit more spice, especially at the end. The aftertaste is more nutty over everything else. It lasts awhile, but isn’t very strong. This is very smooth when drinking, with a medium body and some flatter carbonation. Nothing bad to report, although this one isn’t all that special.

Small head on a reddish body. Dark fruit hints, very good combination of bitterness ans sweetness, very drinkable. A pleasure at dinner!

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours lighter brown with near-white head that thins out quickly. Nose is soft, light baked goods spices and faint chocolate. Palate - some maple, roasted malt, light chocolate, and a hop dryness at the end to round it out. Very light in character overall. Nothing leaps out. Easily a session beer as it is somewhat thin bodied and lighter in flavors.
