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.

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.

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.

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

Pours a dark reddish brown with medium khaki head. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, spicy, floral, and slightly fruity. The taste is really well balanced between malt and hops with a really nice firm hop bitterness. This is a quite enjoyable barley wine.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours a musty pastel-crimson, with a couple fingers of puffy, lacy, off-white head. Smells of sugary malts and piny hops, with notes of chocolate, caramel, soy, and even some pipe-tobacco. Taste starts with the sugary malts, with hints of birch, then segues into juniper hops before easing back into sweet chocolate and caramel. The finish is slightly bitter and hoppy. This beer feels more carbonated than it appears, and has a lingering, sappy mouthfeel. A very... dynamic beer.

Draft. Poured dark brown with a medium-sized light tan head. Aroma and flavor were caramel, toffee, some dark dried fruits and candy sugar, a hint of banana, touch of spice and wood. Slightly thick mouthfeel. Warming but not overly boozy.

Rating from 2011. [Bottle, at least 14 months old] Pours hazy deep reddish-brown with a a nice tan head that diminishes but does not disappear. Lots of strawberry jam, slight alcohol, fruitiness (I got lightly spiced pears in the beginning and by the end of the bottle I was smelling guava, so not sure where to go with that), and a touch of lemon zest and black pepper. Very nice, but not amazing. Big jamminess, alcohol is more prominent, light nuttiness, caramel, quite malt heavy towards the end. A surprising amount of oxidation showing already. Great mouthfeel—thick, smooth, long finish. Easy 5. Nice, but falls short a few ways. Age has not been kind to it, with the oxidation showing through to a surprising degree. It is also too hot in the taste. Great mouthfeel though.

Appearance is a medium cream head with a deep amber. Aroma is a little sweet. Taste is strong with a balance between the sweeter malts and bitter hops. Overall pretty solid.
