Seems Cigar City is collaborating with everyone these days.

Pours a pretty amber with a short, light brown head.

Aroma is strongly alcoholic, with notes of cherries and whiskey. This smells like a mixed drink, which is the point.

The taste is all about the whiskey. It's quite powerful, with hints of malt and fruit sweetness. It's no surprise that this is 10 percent alcohol.

Nice smooth body.

Overall a beer for fans of barrel aging and whiskey. If you don't like those flavors, you won't like this beer.

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 whiskey 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. This version seemed to have a touch more whiskey on the nose and palate, but the difference was pretty subtle.

Widmer's Gentlemen's Club, aged in Rye whiskey barrels. 90% ale brewed with cherries, lemons, and oranges, and aged in rye barrels; 10% regular ale. 10.5% ABV.

A: Almost a finger and a half of head. Medium red-amber. Solid yellow in the dimple. Some slight sediment floating around.

S: Rye, lemon, orange, and cherry are all apparent, though rye and orange are more predominant. Toffee and oaky molasses. Rye is not as strong as the previous rye aged beer I had.

T/MF: Rye-based caramels are more apparent on the palate. A little cherry. Maybe the slightest touch of orange. Rye definitely takes over here! Very slight eucalyptus(?) hiding in the background.

A good beer, but not $20 worth!

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

Edit: Unless I miss my mark, there is fat (or other solidified oils) in this beer! Considering there is no reason (meat) for that, that's kind of gross!
