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.

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.

Tried at Brewery today. Nose full of Hops. Nice amber color.Very hoppy. Best of show as far as I am concerned. Good Brew. Would like to evaluate with more generious amount.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle thanks to mj: Pours a clear dark copper mahogany with a thin-lacing wispy off-white head. Big, fresh grapefruity hoppy aroma has some toasty caramel malty notes. Starts pretty rich and malty sweet with some big citrusy, piny resiny hop character toward a crisp, bittersweet finish. A really hoppy barleywine that could practically be a IIPA. Not sure how well it’ll age though.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Poured from a 12 oz. Bronzey, mahogany hued pour, thick and luscious. Soap and spruce initially on the nose melt amiably into oranges, toffee, and milk chocolate. Tastes of brown sugar cake - wet and sticky with caramel and molasses - brandy, and creme brulee crust. Hops are present in a complimentry, supportive friendship; suggestions there of mango and pine. Maintains a pleasant, erudite distance throughout, never asserting itself too rashly but letting its commanding presence rest in calm authority. Palate is full and quietly rich. Finishes comfortably with wood and smoke. One to accompany a cigar and a lazy, late night campfire. Thanks for sharing, Mike!

Pours a muddy ruby brown amber with a medium beige head. Wonderful aroma of simcoe hops, citrus and pine. Taste is very hoppy with hints of simcoe, toffee, caramel, citrus and pine. SUPERB !!!

fly (1419) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Aroma is just heavenly hops. Deep, dark amber color. Wow, the aroma is so mesmerizing and delightful that I’m almost afraid to take the long awaited first sip for fear of ruining all. Not so. Hops forward, but blending superbly with the masterful malt mix. Complex and reaching beyond the feeble fly words that always become elusive in correlation to just how fine a beer is.I love this the way I love the finest bitersweet chocolate. Geez I want a case of this. Will settle for six or single if you happen to be reading this. thanks so much to mj

12oz bottle. Poured a deeper burgundy color with a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of pine, citrus, caramel, floral, and a trace of fruitiness. Tastes of caramel, toffee, citrus, pine, raisins, roast, and a trace of chocolate. Nice and hoppy.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2008 Poured a lightly hazy, red amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus fruits, caramel malts, floral hops, and cognac. Taste of pine, tobacco, strawberry, citrus fruits, caramel, resin, with toffee, bready malts, grapefruit, and light alcohol in the finish.
