This is definitely one of the coolest ideas out there as far as a series of beers go. Unfortunately, I tried Partridge in a drunken state, but I remember thinking it was really good. Two Turtle Doves pours a nearly black color, with some nice ruby hues on the side when held up to the light. Heading is quick to rise, and produces about three fingers worth. The nose has an almost Winter Warmer like quality to it. I get some cola, spices, (cinnamon or nutmeg maybe) and some caramel like chocolate. The cocoa nibs come through in the taste quite a lot, producing a very pronounced bitter dark chocolate flavor. In the end I get some dark fruit such as prune and fig, but the chocolate lingers on for a while. I did not get the pecans at all at first, but after it warmed up some, I could taste them clearly when I breathed through my nose. The beer does not feel especially heavy, just large, with a good amount of carbonation happening. Alcohol is very well hidden when tasting, but believe me, it warms you up very quickly. I am having trouble taking my time with this beer, as it is so damn tasty, but still, I would recommend sipping this one on a cold winter evening. I also suggest getting a bottle of each within this series so that one day you might have the whole Twelve Days of Christmas collection. All I can say is that this beer is great, and we have great things to look forward to from the brewery. Cheers

Bottle popped at 55 degrees in a wine glass. Smell was unimpressed with some mild candy, brown sugar and leather notes that weren't very strong in either direction. Poured with a tiny bit of dirty brown ring head but had a cappuccino type of swirling which was impressive. Taste had a nice Belgian dark base to it with some caramel,
Cocoa, sugars, nice depth and would love the barreled version I think.
Would easily get this again
