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+0.9. A pretty dark amber pour, limited white head arises. Very nice malty aroma, some caramel and rainin. Maltiness is not quite a prominent, there are some piney hops and spice that balance out the sweet malt. A little peaty, roast nut with some very limited red fruits. A little thin, but exteamly drinkable. Somewhat smokey or roast finish that lingers a bit. Not bad and quite sessionable if available in that capacity.

Bottle. Dark brown/ruby. Frothy head that dissipates quickly to a thin white covering. Mid level lacing. Muted, but enjoyable aromas of chocolate malt. Nice malt flavour up front with a long smooth mouthfeel filled with chocolate and a touch of coffee. A complex hop bitterness tempers any sweetness in the mid palate, begging you to take the next sip. Perfect carbonation allowing a delicious mouthfeel. I love this style. Subtle and so typically understated English, but still full of wonderful flavour.

Pours deep black with wispy head which disappears quickly. The aroma is burnt grains with hints of coffee and chocolate. The taste is fresh chocolate and nuts with a subtle bitterness.

Pours a fire brick red with a fizzy short lasting head. Aroma of lightly roasted caramel, coffee, and salted chestnuts. Flavors of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, and spices. Maybe a hint of sweet pipe tobacco. As the bottle warms more complexities show. I like this one!

Bottle. Pours dark copper with big head (minimize but stays with nice layer). Aroma is malty, dark fruits, raisins, nuts, caramel. In flavour fruity, malty plus hoppy notes. Aftertaste is moderate bitter, carbonation medium. Very pleasant beer.
