COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawing inspiration from an Old Fashioned cocktail recipe and the Gentlemenís Clubs where the cocktail was first served over 100 years ago, this collaboration beer brings together two breweries from opposite ends of the country and ingredients from the home states of both breweries. Using an Old Ale recipe as the base beer, Gentlemenís Club was brewed with cherries and oranges, Alchemy, Sorachi Ace and Pacifica hops, and hand-selected specialty malts to mirror the qualities typically found in an Old Fashioned cocktail. The beer was aged on three different woods: bourbon barrels, rye whiskey barrels and new oak spirals, resulting in three unique versions of the beer, each offering a slightly different take on the same age-old recipe.

hopscotch (9727) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Draft... Clear amber pour with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The nose is so suble, all I can pull from the glass is toffee maltiness - no bourbon here. Medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Nothing really stands out in the flavor. Itís just bittersweet and bland. Finishes sweet with a generous measure of alcohol warmth. Meh.

sonnycheeba (3848) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Sample pour at a festival. Pours mostly clear amber/copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready malts, vanilla, oak, dates, and floral notes. Flavor is dry malts, caramel, light vanilla, some dark fruit notes, and light hops; dry oak finish. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (2605) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly beige head. tastes like strong booze, cherries, grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet grains and musky dried cherries.

Arayaga2 (1818) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2014
Reddish brown with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet, with oxidized orange and caramel. Thereís a lot of bourbon up front in the taste, with odd, boozy fruitcake into the aftertaste. Not sure what all the hype is about, or the $18/22oz pricetag ($10 on sale)

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours brown with a very slight head. Whisky and fruit on the nose same type of thing going on taste wise but more whisky and less fruit, this tasted like it was rough cheap bourbon barrels and did it no favours

McNeillR (1391) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Amberish and existent white head. Bright bourbon, plastically/tinsel grainy citrus nose. Chewy Bourbon is consistent and creamy but rocks the boat a little throughout, engulfing a decent woody malt middle and a dry and logical finish. Trafficked bourbon astringency doesnít decant any enjoyment from what was probably a well put together brew.

Bottle, CAGarvieís "Letís Do A Chris O" Chris-O-age, vile style

allmyvinyl (4442) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle at Craigís. Copper pour, thin white head. Bourbon and dried fruit nose. Taste is a bit too much bourbon for me, and some alcohol burn. Not subtle. Bitter finish. OK.

deyholla (7154) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains/bread with some bourbon and a hint of light fruits underlying. Flavor has more sweet grains and bourbon with some bread and light fruits underlying.
