Pivo Archa je svojim charakterom vhodné k archivácii. Je vyrobené z praženého jačmeňa a troch druhov jačmenného sladu (slad svetlý plzenský, slad údený, slad karamelový farebný, resp. nazývaný aj čokoládový). K dosiahnutiu horkosti a arómy sa používajú špeciálne druhy chmeľu (Spicy Chalenger, Northen Brewer), ktoré sa výrazne odlišujú od klasického v Česku a na Slovensku najviac používaného žateckého chmeľu. Pivo po uvarení a vykvasení dozrieva pri stálej teplote 2şC až 11 mesiacov, čo nemá na Slovensku obdobu. Koncentrácia pôvodnej mladiny je 20,9ş a obsah alkoholu až 9% objemových. Pivo Archa pri správnom skladovaní v pivnom archíve (prípadne chladničke) pri teplote 5-10şC na tmavom a chladnom mieste ešte postupne získava a naberá na kvalite a zvýrazní sa v ňom hlavne vôňa kávy a chuť kvalitnej horkej čokolády. Pivo sa podáva k sladkým dezertom, ako aj aromatickým syrom. Optimálna teplota konzumácie je až 12ş - 14şC. Archa Beer is by nature suitable for archiving. It is made from roasted barley and three types of barley malt (Pilsener malt, smoked malt, malt and caramel malt, also known as chocolate malt). To achieve the bitterness and aroma we use special types of hops (Spicy Chalenger, Northen Brewer), which are significantly different from the classical Saaz hops, used in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Beer matures at a constant temperature of 2 şC up to 11 months, which is unique in Slovakia. Beer is served with sweet desserts, as well as with aromatic cheese. Optimal temperature for drinking is 12 - 14 şC.

Countbeer (4065) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle: Thanks Cuso: Vintage 2011: Served in a Chouffe glass: With a small sshhhh the swing top bottle opens. Black pour. A very big brown foamy head on top of a pitch black colored beer. The aroma reminds me a bit of of a BIPA with brett: hoppy and some good roasted ingredients. To describe the aroma a bit more: hops, flowers, wild yeast, brett, hint of cardboard, roast, marzepin, hints of perfume, citrus, apricot, tar, carbo, some roasted malts and chocolate. Very nice aroma! Flavours of brett, hop, flowers, soap, citrus, apricot, roast, roasted barley malts, liquorice wood, bitters, vinous, coffee, wild yeast, light vinous, light wood, some coal bitter, grapefruit, hay roast, cacoa, some raisin and figs. Crispy and dark. Delicious! Aftertaste is a mix of roast, strong bitter, coffee, chocolate, some liquorice (wood), hops, some yeast and vinous notes. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. Seems like one of the few dark beers were the brett does a good job. I really like this beer. Different approach, still very dark but also crisp!

33cl swing top pours a viscous black with some creamy, brown head. Nose is a little bit rubbery, smoke, molasses, toasted bread, some lemon, some pine. Quite a bit happening. Flavor is dry roasted coffee, raisins, prunes, burnt toast with jam, molasses, crackers, wheat chaff, light fruit. Full, dry finish.

330ml bottle - shared by rosenbergh - thanks!
Black, chocolate head. Sharp sour burnt aroma, yet strangely appealing. Taste is very sour. Very burnt. Most unsatisfying. I don’t like the sourness even if the roast is good, but you can tell it’s a decent brew that’s gone bad. Sourness accentuates the burntness, but not in a good way.
