BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Barley Mow Brewing Company
Florida, United States | website

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
What secrets and mysteries lie within our deceptively smooth nitro milk stout?

Dark and ominous, this medium bodied brew has interwoven flavors of roasted malt character and creamy sweetness with notes of cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate and roasted coffee. For those who seek truer flavor in a complex world.

12oz can. The aroma and taste are both dominated by bittersweet chocolate notes and some roasted coffee flavors. The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, Maven is a solid milk stout.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, subtle chocolate and milk, light hops are present. Feels creamy in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and enjoyable beer.

Poured from 12 oz can into snifter. Nice tawny head and good lacing. Aroma is on the slight side, quite subtle dark chocolate and malt. Taste is also understated. Very much a milk stout lacking the coffee and chocolate depth of an Imperial Stout. Nice mouth body, carbonation is pleasant, some aftertaste. A nice beer.
