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. 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.

The aroma is roasty, chocolate. The flavor is chocolate, roast, wood, cream. Light vanila Medium, slightly thick in body, not thick for a stout. The finish is roasty, bitter, light vanilla. Good overall. D

SlovakSniper (3660) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
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.

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.

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.

PacNWDad (107) - Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours with an amazing amount of tan head in the ale glass. Thick and frothy, and takes a while to calm down. Tons of lace on the side with each pour. Aroma of malt, cocoa and a bit of coffee. Tastes sweet with a somewhat bitter finish. Surprisingly light bodied, with moderate carbonation. An enjoyable brew!
