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.

Poured amber with a off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, and pine. Thick with lots going on. Fruit and spice mix with caramel and citrus in the finish. Delightful.

20090402 Bomber from RB Spirits. Dark ruby amber color with small beige head that lingers. Aroma is fruity with apple notes, fig, and light grapefruit. Some light pine and solvent. Light body for a barley wine, but pleasantly coating and mild, fine eff. Quickly fading pithy bitterness to finish. The flavor is a bit sweet, a bit hot, with applesauce, raisin, honey, grapefruit, toasty grain, late cocoa hints. Fine beer but not blowing my mind or anything. Some mild plasticy phenols emerge with temp on nose and retronasally. I’m curious as to how it will age, but don’t have high hopes as I’m afraid those phenols will become more prominent and the body will thin too much.

sweet and hoppy aroma.... great hop and pine flavor with a malt balance... Similar to the Southern Tier Backburner but much more hop power.... great unique barleywine

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2009
Deep maple brown with an inch of yellow/ brown head. Aroma is grapefruit without the pith, and a hint of cinnamon. Taste is very close to aroma with a bit of pith, but serious malt to even it out. Toward the end, roasty notes diminish into alcohol and tangerine notes. $8/22oz

gogaterz (20) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2009
22 oz. Kind of remiknds me of a cross between a Double IPA and a Barleywine style ale. A very pretty dark amber color with a very small off white head. Aroma of a nice amount of fresh hops with a citrusy malt. The flavor is hoppy but when it first hits your tongue there is a peach-like flavor that immediately dissapears. The caramel malty flavor then comes through on the finish.

Bottle shared by robert at SL. Red in color, decent head... malty aroma..... Sweet taste...sugary taste, a little to sweet for my liking. Super malty. Nice texture. Overall an enjoyable beer but just to sweet for my liking....

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bomber - pours a cloudy dark red, with a soapy head - this is a tasty british style barleywine with an american twist - the aroma has some american hoppiness to it, with some raisin and fig in the mix, peppery alcohol - low carbonation, with a creamy mouthfeel - the flavor starts with some earthy hops, but the complex fruity notes (plum, date, fig, raisin) and toffee-ish sweetness you’d expect from the british style come forward - ends with some alcohol and some drier notes of sherry and even a little bit of peat - this is a very solid barleywine - I must buy more.

22 oz bomber from Spirits RB. Pours a deep dark brown with some light orange/brown edges and a large frothy beige head with some serious staying and lace power. Aroma isn’t that complex with pineapple hops and some chocoalte malts in the mix. Flavor picks up where the aroma falls flat with lots of citrus hops, chocolate, toffee, caramel, apple, grain, raisins, and lots more all over a medium bodied fully carbonated barley wine. This is one solid brew that I really enjoyed even after drinking ALL DAY!!!! LIFE IS GOOD!!!!

could a beer look much better? brown orange and red hues and just a touch cloudy and with a thin yet substantive light brown head. fully hopped but much more grapefruit candy with a fine malt backbone the beer smells like it will taste and tastes even better. a real fruit flavor all its own with great sweetness, addicting, with no trace of the abv....i am not worthy!
