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)

Biere de Garde

image imageBright golden colour, close to transparent content. Mild aroma where the hops reveals some fruithints, albeit in a very modest, subtle way. Great fruityness and overall balance. Definite bitter character. The fruit peaks in the middle and is followed by another bittersting at the end. Kind of reminds me of “Le Chouffe”, but with more soil- content. The flavour is rich and hangs on really well for being so mild/underlaying.
