On tap at Top Hops beer shop in NYC. Reviewed straight onto the site via mobile. Apologies in advance for typos.

Pours a vibrant but slightly murky red colour, a bit cloudy. Head is big, creamy and dense with gorgeous sticky lace. Looks big and bold, but neither too big nor too bold. Just right.

Smells sweet and spicy, with an odd tangy character as well. Cinnamon, orange peel blend with the rye whiskey and oak which is quite strong. Bit boozey, but pleasant.

Taste is hot and boozey from the get-go. Big whiskey flavour with vanillin oak and some rum toffee. Lots of malt underneath helps to pad it but the dominant flavour is unmistakably oak and whiskey. Sweet, warming and big. Yeah it's a big 'in. But not a bad 'un.

Mouthfeel is a little hot and boozey, but fluid and fairly smooth.

For all its flaws, it doesn't turn be off nearly as much as it might have. Big flavour, a little lopsided but smooth enough overall.

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!
