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

When we made the Toronados 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.

Fabulous beer, and you can get this any time in the Bay Area. Were lucky that way. Beautiful ruby red pour, inch-thick head at the top. Nose of currants, oak, funk. Taste is a bit thin with batch 03 right now but its stiLl incredible - lingering sour mouthfeel, not overly sour, tons of fruit and oak. Were very lucky to have this anytime we want it here. A masterpiece that keeps on giving.

monkeychugg55 (1075) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2017
Slightly hazy red-amber with a small beige head. The aroma has some vanilla, acid, funk, cherry and caramelized sugar. The flavor is similar, with some medium sourness and a dry, vanilla and oak finish. Doesnt come off as a strong beer at all. Very good!

davidezdonz (449) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - APR 21, 2017
A 375ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 4th April 2016, poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It was a dark reddish brown colour with a two finger light tan head that dissipated quickly while leaving only slight lacing. Aromas of lots of oak, cherry, blackcurrant, grape and red wine. Tastes of sweet-ish blackcurrant and cherries followed by sourness, oak, red wine, vinegar and light funk. Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall this was just like drinking red wine with carbonation. There was no sign of the 10% ABV, and although I thought the aroma was better than the taste, both were still good.

Bottle, by way of a trade. Bottling date January 2016. Clear, deep ruby red. Slimmest ring of off white head. Nose has sweet vine fruit. Vanilla oak. Red wine cork. Touch of mouldy funk. Some sweet morello cherry. Smells pretty amazing. Taste is dry and lightly acidic. Bit of a balsamic sweetness. Tart and dry mouthfeel. Some cleansing tartness. Mouldy cherry sweetness, and balsamic acidity to finish. Wow. Great beer.
