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.

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.

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.

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.

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 (2000) - 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.

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.

Bottle pour dark amber with some sediment. Nose strong malt, alcohol, syrup, some brown sugar. Taste caramel malt, sweetness, toffee, butterscotch, then finish with strong ethanol.

Theydon_Bois (9944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Tap at Max Burger, Longmeadow, 18/05/13. Murky dark mahogony brown with a thin light tan head. Nose is dark fruits, dates, bread pudding, toffee fudge, sugars. Taste comprises dark toffee, dark berry fruits, demerara sugar, fig rolls. Full bodied, fine carbonation, booze in the finish. Decent BW - alcohol well integrated keeping this drinkable.

BiddleBrau (962) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Rustic hazy reddish with nice off-white dense head. Poured thick. Meaty malt nose. Spicy hop flavor along with big malt profile. Reminds me of the classic English barley wine only slightly amped up. Would welcome a 2-3 year old brew to see how it matures.
