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.

BeerandBlues2 (11831) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an average, fizzy, light brown head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, nutty, bread), heavy hop (pine, perfume), average yeast (dough) with notes of dates, port, oak, vanilla, and pear. Full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness and acidity, moderate bitterness.

Scopey (11759) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Leighton at THE Barley Wine Tasting, August 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a minimal tan head. The nose is juicy dark fruit: prune, raisin, plum, as well as light roastiness, caramel and chocolate. The taste is wood, earth, charcoal, bitter and milk chocolate, dark fruit, caramel and some meatiness, with a dry finish. Pretty boozy. Full body and fine carbonation. A solid barley wine, but nothing spectacular.

Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Cask version at Winking Lizard’s 2nd Annual Real Ale Fest (03/27/10): The beer pours an amber-brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee and citrus. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, citrus, toffee and light hops. The finish is molasses and toffee and leaves a malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

daknole (10828) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Pours a brownish color. Lots of caramel and dried fruits in this one. I think after drinking the Old Numbskull my palate was skewed a bit on this one. The flavors were a bit subdued, but there was plenty of caramel, vanilla, resinous hops, brown sugar, and some good fruity notes too. This is a laid back barelywine. Not too in your face. A good production.
