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.

jsnicholas (1105) - White Salmon, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2022 Bottle (500ml). This is a lovely wine barrel aged beer for some special occasion. I highly recommend it, but can not personally call this a regular purchase because of price.

4.4
chinhaez (397) - Ouray CO, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2022 bottle c&c. Pours a lovely reddish brown color with a small white head that quickly fizzes away. The aroma is strong with brett and claret wines. The taste is over-the-top tart wine grapes, sour cherries and oak. The palate is full and oily. Finishes long with lingering tart wines Overall: decent- paired well with some reggiano

4.2
neongolden (4366) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2022 (375ml Jan 2019 bottle c/o my girl Phyllomedusa, from somewhere in Portland) Pours nearly clear pale mahogany with a thin tan head and tiny lace. Aroma of candied orange peel, raisinated berries, sweet red apples, cherries, red wine, fairly heavy oak, tobacco, caramel and lightly toasty malt, just a dash of vinegar. Flavour is surprisingly sweet and fruity, orange, cherries, touch of apple, raisinated berries again, red wine, smooth lactic acid, touch of malt vinegar, lots of barrel, leathery funk, a little tobacco. finish is quite dry with a tart backbone, dried cherries and oak, mineral with herbal accents and lots of wine barrel in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied, oily, soft bottle condition carbonation. Lovely stuff really, in a style I rarely drink now. Acidity is balanced and well-contained with the barrel, malt and dried grapes ('currants') creating a vinous and complex sour.

3.7
tfontana (5424) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 10, 2021
UPDATED: APR 10, 2021 Bottle (02/11/14) pour courtesy of Chalumeaux--thanks, TJ! It's a cloudy dark brown (root beer) with no discernible sparkle, no head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet farmhouse funk, mild tart fruit, caramel, light vinegar. Taste is strong tart fruit, oak, cherry, sweet fruit. Mouthfeel is light side of light-to-medium bodied with smooth, thin texture, soft carbonation, and finish as taste. Overall, not necessarily agreeable flavors to me but nice complexity and well crafted. Seven years old, so that's saying something
