COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale with currants added and aged in oak barrels.

When we made the Toronado’s 20th Anniversary Ale, we had no idea that it would turn out to be one of our favorite barrel aged beers we would ever make. With that said, we have always wanted to make a dark barrel aged beer using 100% Cabernet Sauvignon barrels but, we never were inspired. That is, until we blended five different beers to make the Toronado beer, the tobacco character from the the dark malts blended nicely with the furit character that developed in blending. So, with Concescration we set out to make a barrel beer using all Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. No, we are not saying that this is a replica of the T-rooms anniversary beer, after all, a beer like that can never be duplicated, and, there was no fruit added to that beer as there is with this one. All we are saying is that it gave us great inspiration to brew Consecration.

One of my favorite sours. Sampling a bottle for the first time after having had it many times on draft. Batch 006. Poured a clear cola brown instead of the expected ruby red on draft. Small bubbly head disappears quickly. Fantastic sour! Crisper and fruitier on draft but dark caramel smooth from the bottle. Perfectly blended now. Very complex barrel notes. Not tasting the red currant as much as in a fresh draft. Bottle version is still definitely sour, but the finish is wonderfully smooth. Not much carbonation, but still has a thick body like a fine cognac. Draft is great, but the bottle is fantastic!

375ml bottle at Brian’s (thx, Brian!). Bottled 08-Jan-2016. Pours a slightly hazy copper with no head. Sour aroma is more intense than Supplication one, brings out some sweetness, tart wine barrels, cherry notes, some balsamic and even alcohol notes. Taste is pretty the same character, quite dry. Amazing beer, but I would prefer it to have more sweetness as for an Imperial version with 10 ABV.

B. 071813 - Cola-candy, forest fruits, vanilla and cherry dominates the aroma. The flavor reminds me of red wine, quite sour, but balanced. Slight allspice, nuts, blackcurrants. A very complex and long lasting finish.

Rating #1000! 37.5cl bottle. Lots of white wine aroma over wooden barrel. Smooth sourness with currant flavours and some iron, but not rusty at all. Tart. Medium to light carbonation. Short intense finish, very dry. Vinous throughout, getting more intense as its warming up. Very, very pleasant.
