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.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 Wow. I didn’t realize that this was Scratch 4 until recently. The pour is turbid, muddy deep brownish with 1-finger of khaki head. The aroma is amazingly complex, giving notes of heavy hops, tropical fruit, funky feety Simcoe hops, yeasty hints, caramel malt, figs, and mild cognac. The palate is rich, complex, throwing different things at the palate with every sip. Among the flavors Inoted were caramel malt, huge feety hops, tropical fruit, blackberry, prune, cognac, and figs. The hops don’t overtake the malt, with both components being huge and balancing each other well, and the alcohol is very well hidden. I need more of this.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 Bottle. Dark Amber/brown color with nice size tan head. Fruity/citrus aroma. The taste was fantastic. Hops,citurs, caramel with smooth & oily slick mouthful. I actually became gitty as I drank this beer. Can’t believe Troegs made such a great beer. They need to continue making this one.

Pours a deep ruby/brown/amber with a medium bubbly/creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of floral, mixed citrus, pine, caramel, plums, red grapes, hints of alcohol, nice hoppy nose. Flavors of hops, orange, other citrus, grapefruit, pine, dark fruits, toffee and caramel. Surprisingly smooth...with a decent amount of hop bitterness. Best in the series so far!

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 Pours brown, with a tan head. Aroma is hops and caramel. Flavor is hops, caramel, and some dark fruit. Medium to heavy body. One of Troeg’s better brews.

3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Draft at the brewery on release day. Deep garnet purple and brown colored body with a thick-layered toast colored head. Big nose of caramelized and roasted plums, some dry but inviting burnt hops, simcoe and columbus mostly. Reminds me of Bigfoot, without the insanely aggressive hop bitterness, since it’s actually smooth. Very rich and creamy on the palate, very full and delicious, and the 9.3% feels really good. Love it! Glad I bought a case.
