COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 spirit–brewed 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!

Flavor of oranges with quiet some citric acidity in front of a solid malt body - cocoa, nuts, dried dark fruits, plums, raisins. Finishes medium dry with nuts and cocoa.

Score: 7 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15

650 ml bottle, bottled 08/28/15, shared by Erich, thanks!
Brown body, with a small, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of brown sugar, dried fruits, cocoa, caramel, toast, some soy sauce, subtle smoke.
Tastes similar, with some some more orange.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes medium roasty, medium sweet, a bit dry, a bit wooden, fruity, a bit toasty.

Very nice. Diverse, with roasty, sweet and even subtle smoke notes. The dried fruits are quite prominent, but there is a lot more going on. Not outstanding maybe, but really interesting.

Quite a lot going on here. A little bitterness from the hops but not a lot. Something more like a barley wine than an ale. A lot of raising, dried fruit and fig. Also orange and caramel. Quite yeasty, stale and sour. Good work.
