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.

Hazy caramel orange tan in color... Aroma of light toasty oak... Flavor is caramel, toffee, with fruity notes of cherry, and hops on the palate... Better than the bourbon version, spices on finish but overall more balanced than the others... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells excellent. Orange zest and oak. Very good. Rich and flavorful, with a good dry hop finish. Itís oaky and fruity together. Goes down very smoothly. First cigar city beer is a good one.

Growler thanks to Toby. Pours out copper topped with a long lasting head. Nose is booze sweetness malts and wood. Taste oak booze malts and a nasty after taste. Almost a footbalm in my book.

Pours ruby red with a finger of foamy white head. Nice caramel malt aroma with some fruit and a heavy dose of oak. Very pleasing smooth and sweet oaky flavor. Iíve never had an old-fashioned, but for I feel that this is what they should taste like. Does a great job camouflaging its alcohol content. I could easily drink more of this than I should.

On tap at Aces and Ales. Brownish orange with a nice white foam. Oak, orange, and almond on the nose. Good body and lively carbonation. Toasted caramel flavors. Oak is present. Smooth finish.

Bomber. Aroma is nice and oaky, imparting toasted coconut, vanilla. I also get orange, lemon. Pours slightly hazy amber with a medium beige head with good retention; leaves some lace. Taste is strong in oak, oranges. Iím not getting the lemons or cherries. I definitely see the relationship to an Old Fashioned cocktail. Itís very similar in flavor, but more palatable (Iím not a big fan of the cocktail). Mouthfeel is creamy, body seems a little too thin for a beer of this caliber. I really like this. I think itís underrated on here. Iím looking forward to the next two.

Have already tried the rye whiskey version. This one is great as well! More of the base malt flavor comes through due to no spirit infusion, and the base malt is ever so slightly sweet and caramely. The new wood barrels give a nice woody and smokey taste. Looking forward to the last of the trio now. A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Reddish Brown in color, hazy with a thin head. This was a big beer with very light touches of oak. I was hoping for more. Light other spices this beer just did not hit the mark. Way too spendy. Too many flavors to combine.

Nocturne (843) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at City Beer, SF. Hazy red shade. Aroma offers a hint of fruit and vanilla. Sticky, sugary red fruit taste. Thereís a hint of oak present but itís not an overt or overpowering factor by any means. Quite tasty.

On tap, the third in the series, pours a pretty cloudy red/orange, thin head but laces well. Mild but pleasant nose, alcohol, malts, wood notes. taste is very pleasant, a bit sweet, oaky, mild malts, alcohol. finishes a bit wet.
