San Francisco, a.k.a The Paris of the West, has long been home to a diverse culture of bohemians and a bastion of art, creativity, and progressive thinking.

This decadent dark quadrupel-style ale was created in that same spiritbrewed with dark candi sugar, dried flame grapes, and orange peel, then fermented with a French ale yeast. Pair with funky Roquefort cheese and visions of a grand tomorrow!

Lore (2430) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2017
brown colour, half inch creamy and quite stable beige head; aroma of slightly burnt plum jam, raisins, orange peel, hints of anise and burnt sugar; taste of intensive, slightly burnt plum jam made from unripe (sourish) plum, raisins, burnt sugar,soursih-woody notes, slight citruses, hints of dark chocolate and maybe some anise, too; not bad, though not among the best of the style

simontomlinson (149) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Creamy beige head soon left a cover on a near black, slightly effervescent body - looks appealing! Dark stone fruits, demerara sugar & malt aroma. Medium to full bodied, creamy on the palate with a tickly tang on the back. Tastes as the aroma - dark fruits, plum, grape, brown sugar & dark chocolate with long tangy and boozy aft.

jb (3111) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Seemed fairly true to style though a bit over the top and lacking the subtle wonder of a great quad. Appearance is dark, orange highlights, flat, no lacing or head. Big dark ripe fruit nose. Sticky sweet start to this, turns a bit tart, get plenty of the candied sugar, represented as candied oranges. Dries out a bit at the end and a tiny alcohol burn at the back of the throat. Hey this is growing on me....
