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.

Smells excellent. Orange zest and oak. Very good. Rich and flavorful, with a good dry hop finish. Itís oaky and fruity together. Goes down very smoothly. First cigar city beer is a good one.

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

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

On tap at Baileys Taproom. Colour...cloudy amber with a thin ecru head. Nose...loaded with burnt cotton candy, dark toffee and treacle. Palate...frothy, blatantly oaky and bitingly tannic. The booze is big and thereís huge waves of bitter toffee and butterscotch that coalesces with molasses cream and Seville oranges. The finish is bitter and oaky. I wonder how this will age??

650ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cool. Date on the bottle is 30 May 13. Aroma: This beerís aroma reminds me of orange pastries; marmalade on danishes, orange cookies, etc. Lots of orange. This beerís aroma has a large wood presence. Quite nice, reminds me of dessert, or breakfast. Appearance: This beer has a rust-amber colored body. This beer has a light+ amount of haze. This beer has a creamy, thick, persistent head. This beer leaves a thick lace. Taste: This beer has flavors of cream, oak, orange, dough, and cookies. This beerís higher alcohol content is not obvious in the flavor. Palate: This beer has a medium+ body. The texture is creamy and smooth. The finish is quite short and ends on bread-y sweetness. Overall: Quite nice--Iíve never had an Old-Fashioned cocktail, but this beer is tasty and delicious. I really enjoyed it!

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.

Pours an amber brown with a thick off white head. Aroma of heavy caramel malt, bitter hops and alcohol. Taste is malty with a hoppy bitterness, some oak and booze. Smooth with a nice medium body. Really nice, best one of the series.
