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.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours out a nice ruby brown color with a small lacing white head. Aroma is of pine hops, sweet fruity malts and slight chocolate/caramel. Taste is very complex, pine/citrus hops up front followed by candi sugar, caramel, dark fruits and slight bitterness/alcohol on the finish. Very solid, usually not a style I"m particularly fond of but Troegs raised the bar on this one.

Damn, this stuff is dank. I get a lot of Vidalia onion- summit hops. Smell is chocolate and candi sugar and dank hops. Taste is chocolate, candi sugar, and dank onion. Go figure. Layered well and develops nicely. Finishes bitter and lingers on the back of the tongue. Very solid.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Poured a hazy red color with a medium sized tan head. Big citrus hop over a full sweet fruity malt base. Some pine and white sugar. The flavor is big and full with a good balanced mix of fruity malt, piny hops, and alcohol warmth. The sweetness defends to huge hop flavor. I wish this came in a 22oz. Full bodied. One of the better American barleywines I have had in a while.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Aroma is full of American hops, it just pours out of this beer. Lots of resinny, piney, citrussy notes, that come off rather sweet. pours a dark rich amber with a head that is an amber tint. flavor is really nice. A very firm rich maltiness on top of a wealth of hop flavor. Lots of citurs and pine flavors. Really nice brew. velvety palate. excellent.

Deep brown in color. Sweet caramel aroma. Fairly thick and smooth texture. Tastes of dark caramel and is nicely balanced by the hop bitterness.

12oz bottle, courtesy of mj. Thanks, Mike! Pours a murky, reddish-brown color; light tan head with patchy lacing. Biscuity and dried fruit notes in the aroma; some fruit leather and piney hops. Average carbonation. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: dense dried dark fruits and caramel; some alcohol poking through, but showing good balance between a dense malt character and a solid citrus / earthy hoppiness. Lengthy, earthy malt and dried fruit finish.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2007
12oz bottle, big thanks to mj for this one. pours dark brownish-ruby color with small off white head. nose is extremely fruity, mainly passion fruit, but banana, mango as well. flavor is red and dark fruits, some caramel malts, but a stale grainy flavor in there too. i don’t like the way these flavors are melding at all. more of a messy fruity hop nose with a weak boring malt base. alcohol is hidden well. light body. the hop and malt flavors aren’t doing it for me and it’s hard for me to understand the high ratings for this one.
