COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drawing inspiration from an Old Fashioned cocktail recipe and the Gentlemen’s 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, Gentlemen’s 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.

It pours a deep amber with a fine lacy head that quickly disappears. The aroma smells fruity, sweet, and a hint of hops. The flavor is very smooth on the tongue with a hint of sweet and oakiness. Nicely done Gentlemen, nicely done.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 Draft at UES Pony Bar with Streets. Pours a clear amber body with thin lacing. Aroma is oaky, very light alcohol and sweet vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet malts, vanilla, wood and toffee.

Draft at CC Brewpub - Pours amber with frothy head. Smell a little oaky, lemon, and citrus notes. Taste of burnt oak, dark malt, and lemon. Decent finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dchmela (2681) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2013
From the 22 oz bottle. Pours a murky brown with a thin off white head. Big malty toffee body, with a big citrus cherry notes and well balanced hop bite in the taste. After a little warming, the aroma starts coming up big. Big cherry notes with oak vanilla and citrus. Very complex and tasty, good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beechner224 (774) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On draft at World of Beer. Color was slightly amber with minimal head. Aroma was oak, vanilla, and malt. Taste is the same with oak and vanilla. Not as much difference with the Rye and Bourbon as I would have thought.

On tap at CCB. Cloudy dark amber pour with an off white head. Malty aromas. Mild cherry and citrus notes work well with the sweet malty notes. Above average mouthfeel and body.

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2013
On tap at CCB Brewpub. Smell a good amount of Oak, cherry, orange. Pours red amber with a nice head and the beer lace really well to the glass. Taste hop, rye, oak, cherry and oranges. Nice beer! Fun night time beer.

burg326 (3883) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2013
On draft at CCB Brewpub, poured an amberish dark orange color, with aromas of oak, with some light fruit, orange peel, and more oak. Flavors are the same oak up front, light cherries, bitter orange peel followed up by more oak.

egg (100) - USA - JUL 5, 2013
On tap at Top Hops in NYC. Pours a medium brown with a thin two fingers of tan head. Good retention. Color is medium brown, moderate lacing. Nose is faint, slightly sweet, malty but hard to get at. Taste is malty sweet, caramel, little bit of subtle oak, some alcohol. Wood comes out as it warms up. Pretty good beer. Not over the top. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Tap @ Raven & Rose... Poured clear amber with a thin eggy, off-white head. This was by far the best out of the three. Oak and wood on both the nose and quite noticeable in the flavor. Citrus notes and a good warming, wood/oak presence. Mildly boozy with bready malts and sugars too. Not too bitter with light fruits too. Smooth and we rounded compared to the other two varieties.
