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

Dark black with a dark tan head and medium retention. Malt forward with slight roast. A little bit of chocolate. Does not taste like 7% and is more Sessionable.

Bottleshare from dan. Pours black, lots of tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate. Taste is light, slightly bitter, light body. More so than I expected. Bitter chocolate comes through in aftertaste.

Un flacon de 651 ml qui crache un liquide noir sur lequel s’installe une mousse généreusement collée. Malts chocolatés, lactose, grains rôtis et houblons terreux façonnent les parfums de ce nez qui m’intéresse. Malts et notes chocolatées brunes dominent cette bouche plutôt douce. Au palais, un corps qui me semble être de moyenne densité avec des bulles ajustées et une texture crémeuse. La finale est facile avec une très faible montée amère.

22. Pours black with a very brief burnt tan head. Big sweet nose, kind of fumey, smells like a bit of ethanol snuck in on this one. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Roasty dark bittersweet chocolate mid palate, again with the treacly sweet ethanol notes. Mild sweet finish.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is roasty and a little bitter with some noticeable dryness; I can also get some grains in there, decidedly oats. Taste is roasty and creamy up front, and a little on the dry end. However, the finish is slightly sweet. Not bad.

From the 651 ml. bottle. That extra milliliter must make all the difference! Absolutely gorgeous dark brown, no, make that a black pour, with a foamy tan head that settles back slowly and laces along the way. Aroma of milk chocolate, dark malts, and an earthy hop note. Thought not an oatmeal stout I do pick up some oat grain. Medium to bold body. The chocolate and malty character kicks in at first in the taste but then there is this explosive but still mild bitterness roaring up on the backside. Very nice all around.

Black body with ring of head. Thick oaty aroma along with black barley and a smooth penetratingly deep roast, making for a thought-provoking combination. Rich synthesis of oats and dark roasted malts shape the robust, yet smooth body. Aptly suited for Alaskan winters. A lovely, hearty brew.

Bulk_Carrier (3470) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2013
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Pours a dark brown and leaves the same color body, one finger off-white/tan foamy head that quickly dies to a film coating the top of the body, lingering clingy lacing; the aroma has deep dark roasted chocolate malts, light toasted barley and a bit of coffee coming through; the taste is bittersweet between the chocolate and the coffee, barley helps to balance a bit, dry coffee aftertaste, dry finish; its pretty easy on the palate, overall, very good American Stout that I would have again

kramer (5760) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear flat black body with a small foamy light brown head. The nose is really nice, roasty and chocolaty with an underlying caramel sweetness and a little coffee. The flavor is on the sweeter side for the style, but it’s not overly distracting. The finish is laced with a big of coffee and burnt malt, lingering coffee note. Medium to full bodied with a little clingy sweetness and a soft gentle carbonation level. Not a bad stout, but not among the best.

750 bottle. Mild nose with a black color. Nice malty flavors with some bitterness on the end. Nice body. Sweet beer.
