COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pours a deep mahogany rust color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is toasty with nice malt backbone and sweet toffee, rustic walnut and a trace of grass. The palate follows with a nice round mouthfeel that thins out and bitters o the finish. Flavors of brown sugar, pecans, lots of grassy bitterness and some burnt toffee too. Really tasty and interesting flavor profile that isn’t hit you over the head sweet.

Bottle. This is a big burly barley wine. One of the better mass produced versions out there.

swoopjones (5889) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2013
draft at Coles, Buffalo. creamy, brownish amber pour. rich toffee filled aroma. Rich, boozy flavor, big toffee caramel maltiness. Falls somewhat flat in the finish, sort of abrupt flavor finish. little lingering. overall, a solid barleywine that falls a little short of top echelon

22 ounce bottle. Thanks Brenton! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, fruit, and florals. Taste is caramel malt, dark fruit, grass, and florals. A touch sweet. Very nice.

Pour at the Millvale beer Fest. A reddish brown pour with a off white head. The aroma is of dark fruits. The taste is of astringent alcohol.

BlowOffTube (472) - Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Such a good barley wine. Pours a dark red/brown color with a tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel, honey, and toffee. Taste is a sweet brown sugar, caramel, hints of cocoa, and some bitterness bite in the end but mellow. Mouth feel is a tad light but other than that this is fantastic.

umich03jm (1957) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013 Bomber from trade with JStax. Bottled April 2012. Pours a cloudy orange-brown color with a nice big frothy that fades normally and leaves nice webbing. Smells delicious. Candied sugar, caramel, chocolate, toffee, nuts, and some spicy/floral/citrus hops too. Taste is actually more bitter than sweet which is a little surprising. Still a very nice burnt sugar, caramel, chocolate flavor. Spicy and floral hops show up in the fairly bitter finish. A bit dry. Medium to thick body, somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Very nice barley wine. The hops have held up very well for being over a year old.

Reynolds314 (2331) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Nice rich barleywine that isnt too sweet. Lots of leathery dark fruits and a nice caramel toastyness. Not much hops or bitterness but you arent left with tongue scraping sweetness.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour, soapy ring of carbonation and an aroma of heavy caramel and hops. Flavor is good & malty caramel, slightly nutty, and a good meld of toffee, hops and a little alcohol all the way through to the finish. Solid.

radio_nowhere (820) - Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Finally got some on draft (Alewife, Baltimore) since they didn’t bottle this year. Served in a goblet, dark-brownish amber color with off-white head. Aroma of heavy malt sweetness, candy, dark fruit, brown sugar and alcohol. Taste is intense version of the aroma, very punch you in the face malt bomb (good thing). Heavy body, low carbonation, thick, rich, complex, syrupy, smooth with sweet boozy finish. Very good barley wine, hope they bottle it next year.
