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.

pint.9 oz bottle pours a walnutty brown into my guinness pint glass. mild aroma of malt, toffee, roasty figgy fruit and lightly spiced, though it doesn’t seem to have any actual spice added. minty flavor, very delicately balanced and quite nice and smooth for 5.5%. medium-bodied, but any more and it would be sticky; any less and it would be weak. i like this very much.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
Rich, heady nose. Pours very dark amber with a firm cream head. Flavour is complex with dark notes being balanced by some vinous, sherry-like sweetness. Finish is pleasingly astringent on the back of the tongue, with a lingering citrus and honey malt. Very nice indeed.

ianwelby (1043) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
A dark red beer with a thin, foamy head. The aroma is slight and sweet and the flavour is heavy malt and fruit but with a nice sharp, bitter aftertaste which balances it out very well. A very nice seasonal beer.

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.

Bottle thanks to my sister for christmas. Pours a dark brown with mahogany flashes down the side of the glass. Smallish dense light tan coloured head. Fine lacing leaves as except the thinest film. Aromas of sweet light caramel, cinnamon and ginger and some light stone fruits. Very christmas like. Flavours are sweet thanks to all the malt with only feint hop bitterness to finish. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with slightly resiny after taste.
