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)


Black and mystical visually, quite fruity nose with clear references to roasted coffee beans. Almost like your morning coffee actually. It ain’t until the first swag that you’ll go furter into this dark matter and find the next level.

Great carbonisation, distinct coffee hits you first, enhanced with bourbon, nuts and oaky layers, before a very bitter finish- and a suitable heat stemming from the alcohol. There is sooo much coffee taste in here that it is incredible! Unholy goodness. And not unlike the regular KBS version, the smooth mouth-coating feel is great, even though the bitterness clearly cuts through here.

Another great beer from these masters of black brews.
