COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medvejie Lake, south of Sitka, is tough as far as lakes go. The steep cliffsides surrounding the glacial lake give it a frequent wind tunnel effect, and it’s only accessible by foot or float plane. Derived from the Russian word for bear, Medvejie is pronounced meh-duh-VEE-gee locally (but probably not in Russia). Our stout is also strong like the bear. Fueled by flaked oats, roasted barley and chocolate malts, it also packs some heat with 7.25% ABV.

Malts: two row, crystal, brown, chocolate, black, flaked oats, roasted barley
Hops: nugget, cascade, willamete

Bottle shared with Guillaume! Cheers! Pours an opaque black with a small brown head. Some visible carbonation. Aroma: Coffee, chocolate, raisins. Palate: Thick bodied, creamy, slightly fizzy. Long, nice finish. Taste: Slightly sweet start that quickly changes to bitter burnt nuts, but not too roasty. Nice.

Bottle from some random bottle shop in Scagway Alaska. Pours an opaque black with a bit of tan head that dissipates slowly. Smell is tons of chocolate, some roasted malt, not much in the hop spectrum. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is slightly roasty at first with a bit of sweetness, then a bit more roastiness. Aftertaste continues the slightly bitter roastiness for a bit before tailing off into nothing. Pretty good, but more of an imperail stout than an RIS.

Very deep brown beer with a foamy tan head. Good carbonation and full mouthfeel makes this a creamy and pleasant ale. Nose is chocolate and toast with vanilla and milk. Very creamy. Full of chocolate flavor. Like this one a lot.

Sampled at the ’12 GABBF. Dark beer with a thick foamy tan head. Malted milk ball nose. Full flavored beer with flavors of malt powder malted milk balls, chocolate and some roasted grains. More alcohol flavor than the ABV would seem to indicate. Nice big beer.
