Spending time in California has its benefits, mostly on the beer side. This bottle, & its friends, were marked down to $8.99. Who am I to turn that down? 22 oz. bottle split with my lovely wife.

I don’t know why, but I expected this to be dark, & it ain’t. Perhaps I should do more research, or kill fewer brain cells. The pour is a dull, ruddy red. Nose is light whiskey, fruits, & a dash of sweetness.

Gentlemen’s Club – Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged packs a big, sweet punch. Nice sweet malts linger over the tongue & the barrel brings a significant drying quality that outshines any of the tastes. Mid-palate brings light fruitiness – I can’t pick out the individuals involved – and a dusting of vanilla & the rye spiciness. Alcohol lowers its horns on the back-end, & more drought-dry from the wood. Half the big bottle will do me nicely & leave me drunk & horny.

Not what I expected, but from two fine breweries, not the wall-banging triple I’d expected. I’ll be interested to see what the other two bring. Good beer.

Not a great deal of foam on this but adequate carbonation on the tongue. Handsome dark amber color could be a tumbler of rye whiskey. Boozy but resiny aroma.

This stuff is sweet, hot, and fruity. Just like the ladies they conjure up on the label. Pleasant caramel with an orange flavor. I can even taste the Maraschino cherry. Powerful taste and strength. You can feel the alcohol fumes. There is a tanginess to offset the sugars, and a deep dark malt with a bitter burn for the finish.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's Liquor in Ocean Beach, where all these are marked down to nine bucks from the previous astronomical price. Something of a novelty but a small jolt makes a great nightcap.

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!
