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)
Powerful nose of coffee. Superior texture. Mouth: not disturbingly intense, but a definite presence all the way throughout. Mild and round, very well aged with a nice balance- not ulike Corn flakes and distinguishably good French pressed coffee. Tastes like an ale (due to it’s mild appearance) at first, with subtle layers of malts… Almost soil-like tendencies at times. One could never have guessed that the alcohol strenght is as high as it actually is, when it comes to the well-balanced brew at hand- simply a real feinschmecker-beer is what we’re dealing with here. The only thing that reveals/gives away the ABV is not in reflected in the actual taste itself, but in the warmth which follows in the oral cavity.
