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)

image imageGolden, somewhat mirky colour. Fruity aroma, with lots more precent hopfeatures than the original. Hints of smoke, very rich taste. The sweetness is quickly overtaken by an exiting acidity, and rounded off with just about the degree of bitterness that suits this beer. Lots more exiting than- but still with a traceable link to- it’s original.
