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.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle, 9.3%. Caramelly aroma. Dark brown colour, small tan head. Very sweet flavour. Good hop burn, brown sugar, some alcohol. Good spicy note, I do not know what sort of spice, but quite nice.

brokensail (14529) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
A: The pour is a great copper/burnt orange color with a finger’s worth of off-white head. S: The nose is typical barleywine: good solid malt (caramel) base with toffee, bread, and brown sugar. A nice piney and slightly citrusy hop note to it as well. T: Surprisingly bitter, much more like a west coast barleywine (ie. Bigfoot, Old Guardian) in that respect. A fair amount of oranges which goes quite well with the caramel, brown sugar, and toffee notes. M: The body is medium, nothing out of the ordinary for the style, with a lively carbonation. D: Plenty drinkable (as much as you can get for a barleywine), with good flavors. This is one I could enjoy fresh or probably with some age on it.

bhensonb (13209) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bomber from Half Time. Pours essentially opaque ruddy brown with a 3/16th beige head. Definitely got that brown sugar barley wine aroma aspect, but there’s something more. Med body, little carbonation. It’s not so sticky as many, and there is something herby(mildly hoppy?) that reduces the sweetness. Gives a nice caramel coating to the mouth. Pretty nice stuff - but definitely not your common garden variety barley wine.

Tmoney99 (12732) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle from Hyde Park Wine. Poured brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, toffee, earthy and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout complex beer.

In mouth, a smooth sweet burned malt with good British hops, treacle, oily and onctuous loads of bitterness, rich and complex. On tap at MacGregors, July 31 2010.
