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.

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 (970) - 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.

ianwelby (950) - 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.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
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.

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

Dark brown, cola coloured pour with very little head, just a little "slick" on top. Aroma is malty, caramel, dried fruits. Taste is malt, caramel, nuts, dried fruit, pretty smooth, very little bitterness.

PapaVillum (814) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Mahognifarvet og rolig julebryg / English Strong Ale med 3 cm stor moccafarvet skumkrone, som svinder til et par mm tykkelse. Ganske fin og anderledes aroma af soyasovs og brunkage. Senere noter af rugbrød. Dejlig smag med let indledende syrlighed og en fin balanceret bittersødme med noter af chokolade og ristet malt. Aldrig for sød, aldrig for dominerende bitterhed, selvom denne spiller den største rolle. Solid bitter, middel sødme. Blød mundfølelse med en nedjusteret karbonering. Middel fyldig krop og olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er bitter, kort og tør. Forbavsende meget smag i denne forholdsvis alkohol-milde jule-ESB. Og ganske god. 500 ml, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, BB: 24/10/15, købt i SuperBest i Rødovre Centrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
