is an independent informal site for beer enthusiasts, providing information on specific beer brands tested by guitarist Archaon of the Norwegian black metal band 1349.


The beers reviewed are rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 6 based on the following parameters:

  • Color
  • Consistency/texture
  • Fragrance
  • Elements of taste and aftertaste
  1. Disgusting (rather drink water)
  2. Poor/boring (somewhat drinkable, but nothing more than that)
  3. Ok (meets expectations)
  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)
  5. Splendid (top notch; a joy to consume every drop)
  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

imageThe aroma discloses a distinct cognaq influence. Brewed only once a year (on the 6th of December), one feels lucky having gotten the hands on this one. By the first sip, the highly noticable alive- character of the beer is revealed: Mature, but fresh. 10 months of fermentation together with the malts  used gives it a beautiful caramelish sweetness and fullbodied texture, followed by a spiritus tingle. A nice and edgy finish rounds up this floating gold- almost like enjoying a glass of fine cognac.
