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.

Bottle: Dreary copper-brown color with a slight ruby-mahogany tint. Muddled & opaque. Murky beige collar on top. Aroma is fruit forward; tons of black currant, grape, cherries, red wine, & mixed berries. Soft sourness with a bit of fruity sweetness underneath. Notes of wet wood, a touch of Brett & hay-like funk, & some faint tobacco. Flavor is more sour than the nose, for sure. Balsamic vinegar, light acidity with lots of grape, berry, plum, currant, & black cherry. Oak peaks in & out with a hefty dryness & a touch of musty funk. Very juicy. Acetic, but not overbearing. Wine-like finish, very dry but also lingering with a strong tartness & some mild driftwood. Can’t really taste the 10% ABV at all. Though far from my favorite RR sour, it’s still pretty damn good.

Au nez, c'est bien boisé, alcoolisé, sûr avec un bon goût de grains caramélisés. En bouche, on gout le bois, un côté sûr prononcé et fruité a la fois. La finale est boisée et sûre, balancée à la perfection. Incroyable produit qui vaut le cher coût...! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On the tap at Blue Dog Chalfont as part of their Russian River Tap Takeover. Pours dark red-brown with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits, funk, raisins,dark fruit,cherries, and vinegar, Taste is sour fruits, wet hay, funk, currants, toasted malts, cherries, and woody oak. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a pretty sour, bone dry, long, lingering finish. Overall, a excellent, world class sour brown that is just a tad below supplication.

375 mL bottle, won at Canberra brewer’s club raffle in late 2014. Bottled 052314, so drinking at ~9.5 months after bottling. Dark brown/red pour with minimal head, sour cherry aroma. Pleasant high carbonation. Sour lactic/acetic acid taste, acidity just right. Aroma has cherry, wood from the barrel, and red wine character. A world class sour beer. But bear in mind it’s a sour beer - be in the right mood when you open it.

First let me start off by saying I don’t really like sours. On tap at the brewery. Pours dark golden honey color, small head. Arom ais sour, funk, raisins. Flavor is very tart, very sour. Too sour for me. Smells pretty great but overall just too sour.
