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.

Brown with short lived head. Choc And caramel malt, raisins and nuts aroma. Sweetness with an underlying bitterness. Surprisingly prickly carbonation given no head.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Dark brown with a thick beige head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Quite a malty nose, chocolate, and light spices. Strong bitter flavor up front followed by a rush of thick malty sweetness. Finishes kind of dry.

smcolw (601) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Dark amber/light brown color; seemingly clear. Awesome head that recedes in a rocky fashion. Light ring lace left on the glass. A surprising sour smell. Largely chocolate aroma. Tastes like a rich brown ale. There are elements of black patent, chocolate and dark crystal malts. Good hop finish that blends well with the light coffee flavors. This is a very good Christmas beer. It has elements of a porter and a brown ale. Well balanced and flavorful.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. BB Mar 2013. Pours opaque, amber brown with average off white creamy head and decent lace. Aromas of nuts, pitted fruits, currants, toffee and toast. Sickly sweet almost with a light floral hop character. Medium body, medium carbonation. Chewy toffee complex body - nutty malt, a touch chalky with a sweetness balanced with certain bitterness lingering right through the semi sweet satisfying finish. Mineral like yeast character lingering.

TedE (545) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
500ml bottle into glass, poured at room temperature. Faint smoky malt nose. Dark brown beer with towering tan-coloured head. No carbonation. Slight tingle on the tongue,sweet malt taste. Aftertaste is a bit of raisiny bitterness but quite abrupt and dry. Nice, good for a couple at least.

Bottle, 500ml. A deep ruby colour with a small head. Aroma is barely detectable, but there’s some roasted malt and hop notes. Flavour is malty with brown sugar, chocolate malt, biscuit, citric hops. A moderately bitter finish. High carbonation. Nice enough but not very exciting.
