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.

Nuffield (3836) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2002
2001 Vintage. Dark brown/amber color, quickly dissipating head of cola-like carbonation. Metallic aroma, leading to a bitter flavor with more complex flavors of malt, and caramel. Slightly syrupy consistency, not as much carbonation.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Dark copper, umber orange color with a tall, stable ecru head. LIght caramel and spice aromas. Some hints of dark fruit as well. A light aroma, that has a slight resemblance of fruit cake, not bad, just king of weak. Nice smooth feel. Toasted malt and toffee in the start. Light fruit, with hints of bananas, peaches, prunes and plums follow. Some pecans in the finish round out this light fruit cake of a brew. Drinkable enough, but to stick with the fruit cake theme, not one that I would be that thrilled with when the holidays come around.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 11, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 In the bottle at the 2007 Crescent Moon Holiday Beer Tasting. Dark reddish amber brown with a thin white head. Pineapple-like aroma. Mild hazelnuts to the scent as well. The first taste is fairly medicinal. Lots of caramel and butter brickle toffee. It’s just too thin in body to be a great beer. Finishes with a mild roasted coffee flavor, but little else.
