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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
375 ML C&C bottle served in a Lost Abbey teku glass. Batch 007. Big thanks to Matt (mfavoino) for sending this my way. A: Pours a dark ruby color with a light tan head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring. Not much lace is left. S: Big sweet currents with mildly tart undertones. Some lighter malts are present with a nice cab body showing itself on the finish of each sniff. Pretty earthy and bold, yet restrained enough to let the beer show. T: Much more sour than the nose would suggest. There is some lactic sourness with a tart current body. The cab gives some dirty grape punch to cut through the sourness. Just a little bit of earthy and leathery malt to counter balance the tartness as well. As it warms a little more of the barrel comes out with some dry oakiness and light sweetness. The booze is so well hidden. I would have guessed, 6% or 7%. M: Medium bodied with a nice prickly carbonation. There is a little more body to this beer, but it doesn’t take away from the drinkability. The finish is slightly drying. O: The Cab didn’t overtake the base beer which is awesome. It gave it just enough earthy undertones to provide some more depths of flavor. This is right up there with Supplication as my favorite RR sour. The booze is extremely well hidden as well. Well put together. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-13-2012
