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.

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.

rbrazell (1654) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2013
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.

Shared at the ba bottle share. Pours amber. Big oak nose, taste is big pulpy wood, light citrus finish is dry. Solid body.

Floback (525) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours amber with reddish hues and a small tan head. Well-apparent caramel, subtle plum, toffee, and wood on the nose. Swashing lace on my snifter. The flavor has loads of astringent alcohol notes, grains, subtle fruits like banana, cranberry, more barrel, Booze, booze, and more booze. BOOZE! Medium/high carbonation and full body. Definitely a brew to save for the end of the night. Donít try this before dinner like I did! I can feel myyy sensesss dulliii..*^*!&@

jbruner (2317) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to rbrazell! Pours a translucent golden brown with thin ring of off-white head that doesnít really lace. Aroma is sweet vanilla, light earthiness, spice. Taste falls flat of the other two, but all the notes are still there. Least favorite.

GT2 (8435) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
651mL thanks to BSchnab! Pours a clear, deep orange. Thicker yellowish foam. Good, webby lacing. Nose is detergent volatile moving to candied orange, buttery biscuit. Taste is coconut oil up front but then harshly woody, dry, and tannic. Biting and near anesthetic like having just brushed my teeth. Abrasive, tannic body. Wood spirals were probably a bad idea.

blklab2007 (1965) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle dated may 30 12. Pour has a brown color and a thick layer of tan head that fell away to some pillows floating about on the surface. Aroma has sweet sticky malts, oak, toffee, hints of dark fruit, and a bit of heat. Mouth feel is full with heavy coating and decent carbonation for a barrel aged beer. Flavor is even more rich, vanilla, oak, dark brown sugar, heavy malts, fermented dark fruit, and a hint of cherry only because the label told me to look for it. It is rich and full and the barrel mixes in quite well. Reminds me of Big Sound that I quite liked as well!

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Copper amber pour, off white head. Fruit cocktail, green oak, spicy hops, brown sugar, alcohol, caramel. My least favorite of the 3.

fluffy (1666) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2013
on tap at New World Brewery. aroma was quite hoppy and boozy, flavor was similar. the alcohol was quite hot and way up front, stomping on pretty much the rest of the flavor, of which i got a little bit of wood and piney resin, almost like drinking cough syrup. maybe the other 2 that are BA arent as booze heavy as this one.
