Our Anniversary Ale, Twelve is reverently brewed with French malts and German hops then piously fermented with a special blend of Trappist yeast strains. Enjoy the burnished chestnut color, remarkable balance of fruity and spicy aromas, rich but dry flavor and long contemplative finish.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a clear reddish brown with a creamy and lacing beige head. Lovely pruney nose, lots of overripe fruits, syrup and oxidization.

Bottle pour thanks to to SourNotes! Thanks! Pour is hazy light brown, with some red highlights. Aroma is grainy malts, light dark fruits, slightly boozy. Tastes is dark fruit, very grainy. Thin. Not terrible, but not what I have come to expect from this brewery.

alexsdad06 (5410) - Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2011
750 ml bottle via trade. Pours a hazy copper brown color with a huge beige head and some floaties. The aroma has mildly toasted bread, caramel, some berry fruitiness and a tart, spicy finish. The flavor is toffee, caramel, bread, spices, cinnamon and a medley of fruits. Medium plus bodied. This was good, but I think I was looking for a little more.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Gusher warning! I lost about a sixth of the bottle in a few seconds. I aged this more than a year. Dark caramel colour, rich aroma of yeast and caramel and candi, and booze. Above average mouthfeel, rich, right on the style. Good spiciness. A sipper, still good drinkability.
