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

When we made the Toronadoís 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.

Sample @ BBF Night of the Funk. Pours a deep brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is oak, dark fruit, and a bit of brett/funk as well. Taste is cherry, currant, raisin, with an explosion into a funky oak finish that pulls the beer together beautifully. I was almost in tears at the quality of this beer. This brewery is now 2 for 2 with me, and I canít wait to try more from them.

On tap at Russian River. Pours slightly porterish color. Aroma is port, sour cherry, lemon, roast, caramel. So much complexity. Taste is sour cherry, coffee, and roast fading into lemon juice, lemon zest, long finish.

10/14/2014. From bottle. Medium brown with a tan head. Funky sour aromas with hints of wine and oak. Not overly sour, but very balanced and complex. Truly an awesome beer.

Great beer. Cellared for four years. The sour flavor is pretty subtle, but itís there.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
i liked it, but i havenít had a good bottle of consecration since then. the nose was like creamed black cherries, prickly barnyard and Rodenbach-like flemish red yeast with a heavy wood presence and it seemed to be around 7-8%, but recent bottles are a mess: aspirin/vitamins/minerals/gravel combined with excessive alcohol..

No retention and no lacing. Smells of black current, sour fruits and oak. Tastes of sour cherries, oak and wine. Sour aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rejtable (1379) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
This is probably as close to a perfect beer as Iíll get. Pours dark plum with limited head and limited lacing. Nose is black currents and some candy. Flavours of candy, black currents, maybe some strawberries, sour. Taste is light/med sweet medium sour limited bitter. Full sticky body with a long sour aftertaste. Wow.

RexTalionis (2522) - FINLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours ruby mahogny in color with an off-white head. Dark fruits, garden apples, some oak and barrel notes and bit of funky cherries in aroma. Nice one so far and even if it feels quite complex itís very balanced somehow. The first sip introduces some cherries and dark fruits mixed together with notes of red wine, bit of spices as well. Vinegar and funky notes appears later on. Nice tasting on the whole with some vinous plums and bit of tart fruity notes in the end.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a bit of head. Great balance of mild sourness and currants.
