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)
imageLight brown and mirky, pours 1/3 inch head. Smells of caramel, wine and toffee. Great freshness/degree of carbonization. Beautiful sweet taste, fullbodied. Lots of caramel, toffee and with spicy hints underneath. Smooth outro with caramel taste still highly present, but not exaggerated. Well adjusted, with bitter end.
