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.

From a 12 oz bottle there is no head at all. Cloudy reddish-brown. The aroma is faint for me. Can’t place it. A little bit of lemon? Medium to heavy sour at first, but mellows as the ale warms ... tart berries come to mind. Very lively, almost fizzy carbonation that softens after a bit. This has been my first venture into sour ales, and it’s definitely "different" for me. I can’t compare it to others having had no experience. And while I can definitely say that this is not my favorite style of beer, at the same time I’m surprised by how much I’m enjoying this brew, more and more with each new sip.

Nice clean aroma of lacto and funk. Pours a slightly hazy ruby red with a full light tan head. There’s a hint of sweetness at the beginning of this beer, perhaps from the currants. This sweetness fades quickly to a complex blend of sour, funk, tobacco, and a touch of wine. The sourness is not overpowering, and fades out quickly, leaving a touch of a tannic note. This is an amazing beer, and if you have the chance, you should try it.

Enjoyed from bottle dated 11/06/14. Good carbonation but no head on pour. Nice effervescence in glass. Very pleasant sour taste with cherry and currant tones present up front. Just the right amount of funk on this one. A real pleasure to enjoy. I wish Russian River still distributed in WA - I would drink this regularly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Rosy brown. No head. Perfect cranberry, candied orange and vanilla with a hint of tartness on the nose. Aggressively tart, then it opens into a twist of vanilla, a burst of orange, then a long sweet grape/Berry fruitiness. A touch of dry wood too. Really immaculate stuff.

Aroma of cigar leaf, raisins, and grapes. Pours a clear copper color, no head. A mildly sour taste with hints of grapes, tobacco and raisins. Delicious with a light body and a mildly tart finish.

Another awesome brew from RR. Dark fruits and dark malts. Mostly caramel and some tartness. Wine like of dark Cabernet and some Pinot noir character. Finishes sherry like with evident carbonation.

Ruddy brown pour. Awesome tart aroma of cherry, chocolate, plum and red wine. Flavor is simply amazing. Tart and fruity, with cherry, raspberry, plum, peach, and red wine. Rich, dry and tannic.
