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.

bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours very hazy darkish copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is mild fruit, oak, and possibly bourbon. Full bodied. Flavor is more oak than bourbon at first, but bourbon builds with time. The fruit is blurred, thereís detectable heat, and the hop seems citrus. The flavors are well blended and difficult to dissect. Somehow it is working into a fairly balanced, heading towards dry, finish. Nice drink to have with a book.

daknole (8550) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2013
LIght amber pour, small head. Im not sure about this whole series. The whiskey, fruit, oak, and hop additions just donít seem to be in harmony. A bit messy, somewhat hot. Not my cup of tea. I get some citrus and bourbon, spice, alcohol.

Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Astringent caramel malt aroma.   Slightly green, some toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and faint hops.   Not as much bourbon as I was hoping.   Seems a somewhat lighter example.   Feels very green but without being biting.   Moderately malty, soft bourbon on the tongue, green hops (light).   Not as complex as I thought it was going to be, and now thinking I paid about $20 for this I gotta say, its more than double what its worth.   Body and mouthfeel are only average.   I was thinking thick and viscous, warming, chewy, caramel, smooth hops, but its not really any of that.   Pedestrian at best.   Green finish, and I mean G R E E N !   Good job, you got my money...
