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.

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 (5116) - 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 (1203) - 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.

kcorum10 (331) - Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Pours an amber color with thin head. This beer is just confusing to me. The flavors donít mix at all in my opinion. There are fruits, wood, oak, bitterness, and heat that all seem to be doing a rumble royal in my mouth. I feel the same about the other 2.

Bottle from Total Wine. Amber pour with a small white head. Woody, fruity aroma with earth and spice. Citrusy, woody, spice and boozy flavor. Meh.
