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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
A Mes rate: Not the best Christmas ale I have ever had. Malty aroma with mellow hoppy notes and just a hint of toffee or something similar. Red/brown body. Poor head. A little bit too sweet and pudding like to begin with for me finishing long with some more sweet stuff then some bitterness. Erm... yeah that’s it.

50 cl bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a beige head. Light roasted aroma. Citrus flavour with notes of some roastedness. Ends up with a fine taste and have a little sourness to the end. Very easy-drinking ale.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
Bottled. Clear, deep ruby beer with an aroma of lightly burnt malt and some hops in the background. The flavor is a bit sweet and malty, with a balanced bitterness. Medium to full body and it feels a bit peppery in the mouth. A quite nice englishman. (070216)

Marsiblursi (3002) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2007
(Bottle thanks larsniclas and rlgk) Pours dark reddish brown. The aroma is fruity and light hoppy with tones of mild resin, flowers, oranges, pears and some darker fruits. A nut like and sweet malt backbone. The flavour is malty and hoppy with tones of citrus, light milk chocolate, nuts and flowers. Soft and quite round mouthfeel with a medium body.

500 ml bottle. Poured a clear medium brown color with garnet light shining through. Head was khaki and reduced over a few minutes to a thin, clingy film. Smelled of subdued cocoa. There was also a whiff of banana. Nutty and chocolatey flavor. Dried fruits and a woody/earthy note were also present. Dry with moderate roasty bitterness that lingered. Good beer.
