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.

Lätt brödiga, nötiga maltiga toner. Stadig kropp och en fin beska. Slutsats: Är troligen klockren till en söndagsstek..men si och så som solist..

ReV2 (165) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle left over from Christmas 2012 and out of date by 3 months. Deep mahogany with an off-white head, aroma of malt & nutmeg. Taste is smooth malt with a little toffee. This has aged well & the head looks like a real ale though not bottle conditioned. Subtle bitter aftertaste, quite sweet and drinking up to its strength. Better than a fresh bottle I’ve had before.

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Prominent aroma hinting of fig and molasses. Really nice amber color that is very clear (filtered). Slightly over roasted malt flavor with hints of brown corn syrup (brown sugar). Finish is a bit uncivilized and somewhat bitter. Overall I like this beer. It is a break from what I usually drink and I find the flavors complex yet balanced enough to be interesting.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2006
Very dark mahogany colour with a nice lasting head on it. Aroma of dark plums, roasted nuts, caramel and over ripe dark berries - lovely. Quite full bodied with an almost winelike quality. In addition to the flavours from the aroma, this also has a touch of strong english licquorice. Subtle bitter finish with lasting spicyness. Me like. Me like a lot.

500 ml bottle, thanks ekstedt. Dark brown with a tan head. Malty with a hint of bubblegum. Sweetish with light bitterness. Medium bodied, very light carbonation, somewhat astringent.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a slight head. Aroma of roasted malt and some biscuit. Taste is first sweet malt with some caramalt, then a very bitter, dry finish. Good, but I was expecting more malt complexity.

Pours a dark amber colour and it has fruit cake like aroma. In the taste its mainly dark fruits makes a good winter warmer must buy again some time soon.

Pours a dark copper brown. Aromas of dark malt and some hops. More interesting in the mouth with some bitter chocolate, nuts, rye bread, and more dark malt. Good balancing hops, and very dry and crisp. Good English style Christmas beer.

Not a bad beer. Slightly above average. Probably won’t get it again because there are better beers out there.
