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.

Draft at Klobyís. Aged on new oak spirals. Pours hazy copper with a thin, fizzy white head. Smells like sweet cherries and apple cinnamon cheerios. Light body and low carbonation. Tastes like apple cider, lemon, oranges, and cinnamon.

The first of the three beers in the series Iím trying. This pours a semi-murky brownish color with a thin tan head on top. Toffee, caramel, candied fruit, and light oak in the aroma. Meh. Sweet, fruity, candied, with syrupy, sticky malts. The body isnít overly heavy, though. Resin and toasted oak kick in towards the back end. It eventually dries out some but thereís still a lot of lingering sweetness. The oak spirals seem rather subtle, or at least more so than I expected. There isnít anything apparently flawed with this beer, but itís a very mediocre offering for something this pricey and considered a semi-special release. I honestly was sick of it after probably 3 or 4 sips. Hopefully the other two in the series are better when I get around to trying them.

1/11/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Dark amber color with a white head. Oakey aromas with buttery caramel. Sweet flavors but somewhat muted compared to the other two brews in the series. Itís good but not great.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Draft. Hazy red brown. Lacing head all perfect. The taste is unique. I guess it could taste like a 1930's cocktail. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Draft at Beer Run, raw oak spirals. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of candied fruits, cherries, vanilla, mild wood notes. The taste is candied fruits, white sugar, oak, mild earth and a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied, slight heat, low carbonation.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours a dark cloudy amber with a finger of off-white head. Spice aroma that reminds me of apple, of all things. Malt comes through in a very pleasant manner, along with spices, with subtle oak following. Very nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a nice deeper brownish orange hue, firmer dark haze in the middle tapers out to a nice orange glow. Big cakey tannish head atop stays as a firm cakey layer, decent lacing and good stick around. Aromas are soap, bread and gentle orange. Some cherry, oak and vanilla. Gentle warmth tapers out. A bit sweet overall. Initial is toffee, toast, some soap and gentle spuice. Vanillin and oak, touches of earth, sweetness. Initial is a bit soapy, sweet, caramel and florals, touches of citrus and red fruit. A bit oxidized, toast, mellow oak and vanilla. Too sweet and a bit non descript. Middle is a bit sweet, soapy and caramel elements. Fruit, gentle toast and toffee. Some oak, vanillin. Not much influence, a firmer sticky body. Backend is a touch dry but still sweet. Finish is a bit sticky and forgetable. Meh. Least favorite of the group.
