Pistonhead Christmas Carol, now with more holiday horsepower. When a genuine holiday-injected Pistonhead Cristmas Carol is in your hand, life is good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2014
Flaska från systemet - lite brändatoner i doften. Mörk med ljust, nästan vitt skum. Smakar lite brända toner men alldeles för mycket beska, ingen smak av malt och rätt tunn i kroppen med.

Gbgbrouge (339) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014
Poured from bottle, dark red brown with beige head. Aroma with notes of caramel, dark bread herbs and some dried fruit. Taste is mild with notes of dark bread, dried fruit and a little spice. Not to sweet and just enough bitterness. Nice after taste. Good beer to the Christmas dinner!

Rune (9355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
500ml bottle via djoeye, shared with Finn. Huge, creamy, tan-coloured head leaving crocheted lacing to the glass. Black body, red-tinged. Earthy malts on the nose, hints of caramel. Flavours of herbs, bread and dark fruits. Slightly roasted endnotes. Fine bodied. Yuletide feel, alright (Tromsø 18.12.2014).

visionthing (3615) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2014
50cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours very dark brown with a moderate sized beige head. Dark and malty aroma with some slightly roasty notes, dark, dried fruits, caramel and hints of chocolate, herbs and spices. Medium sweet, but fairly balanced and pleasant malty flavours and a certain bitterness. Nothing special, but quite decent.
