Maven, a Milk Stout by Barley Mow Brewing Company

Share This Review

Maven is a Milk Stout brewed by Barley Mow Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a can.


The stout pours black and bleeds to brown at the edges of the glass. It’s topped by an inch-thick pad of tan foam that offers modest retention.


The aroma has a scent of roast malt with a hint of chocolate.

Coffee roast carries the palate and is balanced with cocoa nibs. The tasting finishes bittersweet with dark chocolate.


Relatively smooth mouthfeel has a slightly less than medium body and medium-low carbonation.


The Maven tastes more like a straightforward stout as opposed to being a milk stout. And so if you were hoping to satisfy your sweet tooth, you might consider another brew. Otherwise, this stout makes for a nice beer.
