Avery The Czar

There was some confusion as to which beers were which, but after doing some analysis at home (20130121), I determined that the order of the beers was simply the reverse of the order given at the restaurant.

Beer Flight: (listed left to right) (number in parentheses indicates turn order)
Avery The Czar (2)
Deschutes Red Chair NWPA (1)
TAPS Toasted Santa (3)
Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale (4)

Second, I tried the first from the left (#1).
I wrote: "Tastes like a brown ale, which is my favorite style of beer at the moment. It has the perfect taste with low bitterness."*
*It's actually an Imperial Stout.

I later wrote: "This beer tastes great. Well, it's different. I'm tasting the alcoholic spice. Maybe it's the taste of Tabasco sauce from the burger."
I finally wrote: "#1 is sweet."

Status: Full. Left to right: The Czar, Red Chair, Toasted Santa, Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale

Behold the stunning crimson hues through the inky blackness. Inhale the noble Hallertau hops, spicy and floral. Savor the flavors redolent of English toffee, rich mocha, sweet molasses, candied currants and a hint of anise. We highly recommend cellaring additional bottles, as the Czar will continue to mature and become denser and more complex with age.

The Czar is the first installment in our Dictator Series.

Food pairing: The roasted barley, chocolate, anise and mocha flavors of The Czar are accentuated by all manner of chocolate desserts. We also love The Czar with coffee-crusted filet mignon, as its bold flavors are able to stand up to the instensity of the coffee/meat combination.

Availability: Releases in November. 22oz. bombers, 1/6BBL and 1/2BBL kegs. Limited quantities.
