Smell good, taste is just right. The aftertaste is minimal. But I still think it’s an okay beer. A perfectly okay Dunkel I would say. I would recomend this beer. Yes, if you want a beer that is a bit more common.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Trevlig överraskning för att vara av ett märke som man helst undviker och mestadels avfärdar som trams. Högt betyg på Pistonheadskalan, dock ett bottenskrap enligt julölsmåttet.

Som bedömningsobjekt är Pistonhead Christmas Carol en svår nöt att knäcka. Det är ofta så med öl som varken är bu eller bä, som är tillräckligt goda för att undkomma smädelser men för halvdana för att lyftas till skyarna på jubelropens jetströmmar. Ibland är en öl bara en öl. För att hitta poesin i det här ölet får man nog stirra djupare i glaset.

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2012
@ Tiddes Bar. Pours clear dark mahogany with a good bubbly creamy beige head leaving laces. Aroma is sweet malty toasted fruity apples bready. Flavor is malty acidy toasted dry yet has some sweetness bitter. Finishes longlived bitter malty bready.

Frovigalning (2879) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle at Loka Brunn. Lots of metall in this one, so dominant that the only other flavour that breaks through is some hard roasted bread. Besides that it’s all metall and it has a very thin and watery bottle. No I couldn’t drink this so I gave most of my bottle away. That guy didn’t like it either.

Bottled. Pours dark brown head with small brown head. Smells sweet roasted. Tastes burned roasted malt, abit sweet with a clear bitter finish.
