The Flying Mouflan was #4 in the "Scratch Beer Series" begun by John and Chris Trogner and their brewing staff in 2007, producing one-offs based on recipes the brothers developed in the mid-’90s when they were considering opening a brewpub rather than a production brewery. The medal-win in Denver last October convinced the brothers to make the barleywine-style ale the first beer to come out of the Scratch program and be added to the production roster.

Bottle. Thanks! A: Dark mahogany with a light cappuccino head. Decent lacing. N: Toffee, rye bread, pine, caramel, and a hint of vanilla and licorice. Tree bark, and peppercorn. A touch of bubble gum floating around in here. T: Spicy, bitter, and moderately sweet. M: Sticky, medium to heavy body. Alcohol is well-hidden. O: A peppery barleywine with hops to spare. I can’t say how I actually feel about it, though. I tend to prefer more sweetness, but this has a nice balance. I would just like something less spicy.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into two chalices and I shared this with my dad on Thanksgiving of 2012. The appearance was a nice golden amber to brown tobacco color with a decent half finger foamy white head that once it starts to die, there is a decent amount of adequate stringy lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass. The smell was definitely of the English persuasion of sorts of a Barleywine as the typical "tobacco" smell and maltiness came out here. The taste was caramel malts with a nice coating of the tobacco coming through as well. On the palate, it sat about a medium to heavy with a decent boozy edge to it. The alcohol is well noted and I know that was not from the tryptophan from the turkey we had that night. Overall, this one’s a beast of a barleywine, not one to mess with as it made an exceptional Thanksgiving well remembered today.

Bottle courtesy of BA’er @Casey3236. Pours a mostly opaque deep nutty brown, with hints of rich woody red. Creamy tan head that held pretty well before fading into a medium collar and a few wisps. Sticky legs and good lacing. Aroma is molasses, deep earthy malt, woody, some leathery damp soil. Taste is dark caramel, nutti-chocolate with some almond like toastiness, leather and earth. Rich mouthfeel, full bodied and low to medium carbonation. I think I aged this one a bit too long, or maybe not long enough. That dirt-like flavor is a little off putting.

Hoppy aroma. Full bodied with a good combination between hops, malt and sweetness. Really good barley wine.

Deep brown with 1 finger foamy tan head. Lots of dark fruit and toffee in the nose. Flavor is heavy on the dark fruit. Opens sweet, dark fruit in the middle, somewhat hoppy finish. Nice and smooth. Pretty good, not world class.

Thanks to rowingbrewer for this extra, cheers Mark! Vintage 2010 A: Pours a slightly hazy burnt fire orange ale. The ale presents with a two finger peanut head which falls to medium sheet of the same. spotty on sheeting lace here. S: Whew! Sharp one here. Plenty of hops fell into this kettle. The alcohol is sharp here as well. The beer is gonna be bitter and spicy on the palate (smells like warrior, columbus, simcoe). Very hardcore nose. T: Malt, pepper, savory, brown sugar, molasses, hints of cardboard oxidation (good here). The beer is hoppy still. I think this beer would take two years and it would develop a fantastic flavor. The malt profile is deep, toffee, caramel, coffees, cocoas, burnt sugar all fight for the balance and will finalize their hierarchy over time. Wish I had another for the cellar. M: Full body with low carbonation. Although I tend to drink carb low beers, but I fear this beer will be completely flat in a couple years after aging. Right now, good, loose syrupy feel. O: Well crafted a year out. Fresh, I’m certain this is a hop-bomb and I likely wouldn’t enjoy it - hop profile here tends to be too spicy. Nonetheless, this beer was well done.
