On tap at the bier stein the other day.

The beer pours a fairly dark, copper amber color with faily good head retention and light lacing. The nose is very sweet and malty, and was dominated by an aroma of cherry cough drops and vanilla. There was at most a hint of bourbon in the aroma profile I thought. The flavor profile is just more of the same in this sweet beer, and I confess I found it a bit heavy and cloying on the palate. Mouthfeel is fairly fully, with a long, malty, slightly hot and boozy finish.

Tried this side by side with the other two Gentlemen's club beers the bier stein had on offer, and found very little diference between any of them. All of them were dominated by a considerable amount of sweet malt and vanilla.

Serving type: on-tap

This is a collaboration with Cigar City.

"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."

From 06/26/13 notes. Had an 8 oz. pour of this on tap at Pony Bar in NYC on the UES, side by side with the Rye and New Oak versions. Listed as 9.5% on the menu.

a - Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with one inch of off white head and low to moderate carbonation.

s - Smells of tropical fruits, caramel malts, bourbon, oak, toffee, toasted malts, some sweet sugar, and molasses. Lots of fruits in the nose, and caramel. The bourbon is there but not overpowering at all.

t - Tastes of tropical fruits, oranges, cherries, sweet dark fruits, caramel malts, toffee, bourbon, oak, toasted malts, bread, some burnt malts, and sugar. Taste has even more fruits to it than the nose, especially as it warms up.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is smooth and easy to drink. Doesn't like around 10% ABV at all.

o - Overall a good barrel aged old ale. It is very fruit forward which surprised me, and the bourbon does not dominate, though it is there. Easy to drink and a good beer, I thought going in this would be my favorite variation and it actually ended up being my least favorite of three, and the fruitiest. Worth checking out on tap; in bottles it would depend on the price for me.
