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!

I had this one at the 15th ave Hop House in Portland, OR. It was served in a snifter, the beer is a robust ruby color with a skin of beige foam. It has a surprisingly awesome lacing.

Nose of whiskey, spice from the rye and some malt.

Wow, the whiskey barrels did their trick, nice rye IPA with a strong whiskey base. Malts and some citrus but the there is a bit of booze that is always in play. I like how this one hangs together.

The mouth is decent and a bit coating. Great way to finish a night.

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.
