12 Beers of Xmas

I’ve been ‘cellaring’ a few of my more special beers over the last year or so, with the intention of drinking a few of them over Christmas.  Handily there were at least a dozen good ones to choose from, so I’ve decided to join in with the Beer O’Clock Show’s “12 Beers of Christmas”.

Over the course of the next 12 days, Twitter, instagram, untapped and the blogosphere will be awash with what looks to be some great beer… I’m looking forwards to both drinking mine and hearing what everybody else has to say about theirs.

My list, in no particular order at the moment (and possibly subject to change depending on how I feel):

Wild Beer Co. – Millionaire – Day 1 – Review here
Wild Beer Co. – Raconteur
Abdij St Sixtus – Westvleteren 12
Harviestoun – Ola Dubh 18 – Day 3 – Review here
Rodenbach – Caracetere Rouge – Day 8 – Review here
Rodenbach – Vintage 2012 – Day 5 – Review here
Brooklyn – Black Ops
Abbaye de Southwick – Funky Vermont – Day 2- Review here

Mikkeller – Spontanmandarin Santa’s Little Helper – Day 4 – Review here

I’ll try and keep a few tasting notes and post a few pics as I go along.
