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.

Hoppy and flower aroma from a brown body and tan creamy head. Bitter sweet balanced, and works perfectly with salty cheese.

Deep mahogany pour. Thin tan head. Sweet malty. Nutty aroma. Dark fruit, mollases, nuts on the tongue. Smooth warm finish. Low bitterness.

mighty fine English ale-ruby/brown beauty with modest aroma off white foamy head and nice lacing all the way down-rich malt and perfectly hopped balance Get these while they are around-not real easy to find here in Mich

Poured a nice dark brown with a dense off white head. Aroma was sweet,spicy with light wood and nuts. The palate was soft and it seemed to embrace the tongue. The flavour is quite sweet with notes of caramel and fruitcake with a dry bitter roasted malt finish. This is the first Christmas beer I have had that is light bodied enough to work in Australian summer conditions yet still have a respectable amount of flavour.

This beer is a gorgeous dark brown with a lingering off white head. Smells off coffee and even some pine. The coffee carries over on the palate with a bitter bite at the end. Lovely beer

Very dark brown, almost black with a thick white head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate and liqourice. Gentle and smooth, tastes sweet but with a strong liqorice hint and a long medium bitterness in aftertaste. Perfect for the cold, winter nights.

Nice dark color resembling coffee. I get mixed aromas from nutty, to banana, to licorice, and even a bit of plum. There is a bit of body and its also quite smooth. Bready with a slight nuttiness. Would definitely be a cold weather beer.

A highly sessionable beer. Not too much in the way of aromas, but a well balanced taste of malt and hops, that refreshingly carries right through the palate.

Standard bedømmelse. Hvor er jeg i øvrigt træt af denne her åndssvage "comments" (læs=lad os fravælge øl-pøbelen, som ikke gider skrive kommentarer) funktion.
