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.

Bottle. Pours murky brown with a small tan head. The aroma has some caramel notes and a lot of astringency. The taste is medium hoppy bowery with a ton of sweet boozy caramel.

Good barley wine. Heavy malt aroma and taste, but not overwhelming like others. Balanced with dark fruits, toasty bread, and slight hop bitterness. Good amount of lacing on glass and is dark brown in color with a tan fluffy head. Creamy mouthful. Would recommend to others.

Cloudy dark amber with ample foam, got to be unfiltered. Aroma of caramel, molasses, raisin, and some citrus. Starts with sweet toasted grains and toffee and then follows quickly with moderately bitter hop finish. A little bit of booziness, but really drinkable for a barleywine. Great rounded taste and another excellent beer from Troegs!

Bottle shared by my good bud Brewkkake, you rock brotha! Big aroma of malts, caramel, slight hops and slightly boozy. Easy to drink given the 9.3%ABV.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 This is delicious. Caramel cocoa malty hop nectar. Not a classic barleywine

Iphonephan (3018) - McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a murky brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel. Flavors of spruce needles, caramel and candy sugar. Intense bitter finish.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. Smells like a barleywine with just a hint of dark chocolate. The flavors walk more of a fine line between an aged IIPA and cocoa nibs, all melded over a somewhat too creamy mouthfeel. It's an awesomely unique mix of a chocolate stout and a hoppy barleywine.

Had this over the summer, bonus from Jwiss22. Very sweet for a barley wine. The bottle description was the best - hops dipped in candied sugar. Good stuff, barley wine is not my top style but I enjoyed.

Plovmand (6301) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle at home. Thanks Ramy! Pours deep amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is loaded with biscuits, toasted malt, crackers and a good bite of lingering hops. The flavour has similar notes with the toasted malts in front and the fruity and bittering hops in the back. Great brew indeed! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid american style barley wine here. Medium hops, big caramel malts, winter beer.
