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.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and dark wood with an alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer met my expectations.

22 oz. bottle shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, rye whiskey, more woody, vanilla, cherry, some citrus, boozy, all the flavors didnít really play well together early, but this started to improve for me as it warmed as more of the flavors come out, still a bit sweet.

shigadeyo (3136) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2015
Malty aroma with a healthy does on vanilla, malt syrup, and some alcohol. Red orange color with a thin off-white crown. Vanilla maltiness, light rye bread crust, average level of herbal/earthy hops and candied orange peel; alcohol venting through the nose along with sugary rye whiskey in the finish. Medium to medium full body, smooth. Okay, far from great. Nothing special. +1 for the cool label.

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy dark orange with a thin light tan head, similar if not identical to the Bourbon version. Aroma is seemingly more muted, getting a little cherries, oak, some vanilla.The taste is oak, i am really getting the rye, spicy and somewhat dry, a bit more of a harshness to this over the bourbon. These are more different than i thought, both have their qualities, but i think i like the bourbon a bit better.

NikkTwist (1877) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Billed as "Widmer Rye Barrel Aged". Description-wise this seems the likely choice - but not certain. Ended up with the last pour of the keg. So all this may be nonsense. BUT - clear dark orange amber pour with a slim lasting small-bubble off-white head. Plumy old ale. Slight smoke. Feels a bit watery. Noticeable Whiskey notes though in balance they feel quite faint. Some spiciness gatherers towards the finish. Some nice interesting flavors here but ultimately feels too muted and watered down.

Pours murky brown with little head. Little overt whiskey in the flavor, but there is an even background whiskey flavor. It's nice but I wish for more. The citrus added is too muted however, leaving the beer tasting a lot like a old ale and not much more. Good chewy malt but an odd bitter finish that doesn't do it for me.

"2nd of the 3 we tried...barreling lighter than expected, but compementary rather than stealing the show. Upped the abv a little, but not noticeably. The old ale still shines, with a slight added sweet pepper finish. Maaaaybe a touch smoother too."

Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of bourbon and rye mix flavors. Tons of barrel aging you can tell. Nice easy sipping beer.
