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.

bhensonb (11532) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours ruddy amber with a slight beige head. Aroma is brown sugar - though not strongly so. Near full bodied. Flavor is mixed fruit, brown sugar, and astringent oak. Itís not really bitter, but between the oak and the hop thereís enough to offset the malt. With time the bitter tends to build up in the mouth. A little red berry and citrus come along. Finishing nicely balanced with brown sugar, fruit, oak and bitter. Itís very different, but persistence reveals a pretty nice ale.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Draft... Pours clear and deeply amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. As with the other versions, this beerís aroma is almost too subtle to describe. All I can really pull from my glass of this version are mild notes of toffee and white oak. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and restrained carbonation. The flavor is a bittersweet fusion of toffee and hops intermingled with an enjoyable white oak component. As with the other two versions, there is no alcohol heat here and it finishes malty and mildly bitter. This treatment is much better than the other two. However, the base beer remains reminiscent of an Old Fashioned cocktail and I donít like Old Fashioneds at all. Again, this is the best of the three treatments.

Drake (9001) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Draft at Beer Run, raw oak spirals. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of candied fruits, cherries, vanilla, mild wood notes. The taste is candied fruits, white sugar, oak, mild earth and a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied, slight heat, low carbonation.

GT2 (8742) - 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.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2014
This beer pours a clear amber-copper color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, oak and caramel. Medium to full body with flavors of oaky bourbon, earthy hops and sweet fruit. The finish is oaky with a sweet and spicy fruit aftertaste. Above average overall.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a murky dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma is quite complex, bringing out lemon peel and oak barrels upfront. Flavour is quite boozy, with notes of oak, alcohol, paint thinner and some dark fruits, taken out a bit by the lemon. Not the most refined beer, but drinkable in small quantities. Okay.
