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.

Small head on a reddish body. Dark fruit hints, very good combination of bitterness ans sweetness, very drinkable. A pleasure at dinner!

Pours a fire brick red with a fizzy short lasting head. Aroma of lightly roasted caramel, coffee, and salted chestnuts. Flavors of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, and spices. Maybe a hint of sweet pipe tobacco. As the bottle warms more complexities show. I like this one!

(50cl bottle) Small tan head atop clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, fig, caramel, light nut. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, fig/plum, some roasty nutty bitterness. Light-medium body, light stickiness. In the U.S., this would be considered a brown ale.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Good brown color,small off white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was roasty with maybe some hints of chocolate and a faint hint of smoke hidden in there as well.The flavor is malty upfront with a nice smooth roasty side some hints of chocolate.Very smooth brew with some nice flavors much better then i was expecting,and well worth trying again.

Dark brown with a hint of red. Clear. Not much head. Aroma of dark toffee. Still refreshing and well balanced. A decent attempt of a Yule ale from the UK.

Oelbas (274) - DENMARK - NOV 16, 2013
Smuk rødbrun klar farve med cremefarvet top. Skummet holder ikke længe. Duften er diskret med ristet malt, lakrids og svedsker. Smagen har de samme elementer oven på en let sødlig bund og fin bitterhed. Rigtig fin ballance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fra flaske, DSJT på Cardinal nov-13: stor og kompleks kryddersmak - et interessant øl som må prøves igjen. Her har de pakket mye inn i bare 5,4%.
