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!

Fra flaske på fellestreff RBHD/Bryne Fråholdslag, Bryne aug-17: lett uklar rødlig kobber med kort skum. Bærsyrlighet sammen med rosiner, kandis og søte appelsiner. Frisk, slank og lettdrikkelig (for sin voltstyrke) med tydelig bærsyrlighet hele veien.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Very dark brown colour. Nice aroma of malts, brown kandij sugar, caramel, molasses and dark dried fruits. Moderately sweet and fruity flavour, the same elements as in the aroma, but unexpectedly sour and vinegary.

Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 22, 2017
0.65l bottle. Looks nice this. A cloudy deep amber brown colored body with a small islandy beige top. Nose-vise it’s really raisin sweet and dark fruity. Lots of dark candied sugar, hints of vanilla. Oh, it’s sour. Sourish. Get the orange peel in the mouth and taste for sure. Sour red currants and a little alcohol. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and it’s just above average on the carbonation. Not your typical quad but I definitely liked it. 14.04.2017

alteregoo (1674) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 9, 2017
Piana spora, niezbyt trwała, ale ładnie zdobi szkło. Barwa rubinowo miedziana, zamglona. W aromacie rodzynki, kandyzowane morele, figi, karmel, w tle nutki czerwonego wina, może jakaś namiastka pomarańczy. W smaku już czerwone wytrawne wino na pierwszym planie, do tego kwaskowe pomarańcze, porzeczki i to wszystko wymieszane z quadruplowymi, słodkimi akcentami w typie rodzynek, melasy, ciemnego cukru... W posmaku zioła i przyprawy, niewielka, głogowa goryczka. Gęstość typowa dla amerykańskich quadów, czyli (dla mnie) nieco za mała, wysycenie średnie, drobne.
Całość tworzy dość dziwną mieszankę, przypominającą odrobinę flandersa kupażowanego z ciemnym, mocnym belgiem. Czy mnie to przekonuje? Nie do końca - w quadzie nie szukam akcentów kwaskowych czy winnych, zdecydowanie wolę klasyczne, słodsze, pełniejsze odsłony... Na plus ładnie wkomponowany alkohol.
