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.

Tasted this back-to-back with the other Widmer/CCBs. Pours red with a small white head. Nose is caramel, malt, oak. Flavor is dominated by the oak but also has some malt, caramel, wood in there. Not as good as the bourbon barrel version, I thought.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery caramel, slight haze, small sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Oak and alcohol on the nose, pale caramel, did I mention alcohol.   Very slight vanilla and graham cracker.   Soft caramel and alcohol up front, soft vanilla, graham cracker, and oak.   Slightly better than the Bourbon version.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as thick, viscous, or big in body as I would have thought for a huge $20 bomber.   Not as green as the Bourbon, but still not that big.   Soft caramel, oak, and vanilla lingers.   $20 for this... not worth it.   Stick to draught.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours an orange color with a khaki head. The aroma is sweet caramel and fruit. The flavor has big notes of dry oak and sweet toffee. Good hop bitterness for balance. Not real complexÖ kind of an oak bomb with sweet maltiness.

BOLTZ7555 (2979) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Dark orange and oak colored pour with a small sandy head. Pretty one dimensional with hot alcohol, toffee, mild wood, and subtle cherry. Just not terribly good.

baraciisch (2331) - California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
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.

BuckeyeBoy (3686) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2013
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.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2013
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.
