Last of the series picked up at half price near the San Diego airport & hauled back in a suitcase brushing 50 lbs. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

The pour is pure floodwater, with enough dirty sediment to qualify for a flood erosion grant. It’s orange – who classified this as a black ale? Minimal carbonation. Aroma is about a negative 3 on the Richter scale: maybe some sweet malts, caramel, vanilla is the only thing I can actually pick out. Spare.

Gentlemen’s Club – Aged in Bourbon Barrels is a big whatnot of bourbon stink. Waves of bourbon get in my eyes & practically obscure whatever is holding up the barrels (maybe I understand the “black ale” classification now, well, except the color). Putting a horizontal drill under the barrel, there might be caramel, wood pops out, unvarnished alcohol, vanilla. There’s a harsh bite at the end that might be the cherries, or lemon; it’s not hoppy, but it is interesting. Half a bottle of this will be OK.

The least of the three variants, this one is also the heaviest on the barrel, though the fruits leaves a faint, if interesting, afterburn. Interesting. That’s the word that best describes this beer. Pretty good brew.
