At the source in Tampa. Draft in CCB snifter. Pours a reddish amber with big thick cream colored head. Aroma of hard candy, oak, toffee, some fruit. Flavor is sweet bubblegum, bits of fruit, and some big oak flavor. Bit of whiskey but not much rye from it. Sticky and slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Only ok and a little bland.

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.

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 Bourbon and New Oak versions. Listed as 9.5% on the menu.

a - Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with two inches of off white head and moderate carbonation. Tons of lacong on the glass; looks a little better than the bourbon and new oak versions.

s - Smells of tropical fruits, caramel malts, whiskey, oak, toffee, toasted malts, some sweet sugar, and molasses. Lots of fruits in the nose, and caramel. The whiskey is there but like the bourbon version, not overpowering at all. Nose seems a bit fruitier than the bourbon; like the bourbon slightly better but they are close.

t - Tastes of whiskey, oranges, cherries, sweet dark fruits, caramel malts, toffee, bourbon, oak, tropical fruits, toasted malts, bread, some burnt malts, and sugar. Where the taste had more fruit in the nose than the bourbon version, the rye version has more whiskey and less fruit, making it better in my book. Still not dominant, but more up front now.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is very smooth and creamy, and easy to drink. Mouthfeel is creamier and better than the bourbon version, similar to new oak version.

o - Overall I liked this one more than the bourbon version as it had more whiskey in the taste and less fruit, and a better mouthfeel. I still like New Oak the best, but this one is quite good too. Worth checking out.
