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.

Ratman197 (9654) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of toffee, tobacco, light carmel and light fruittiness. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of toffee, tobacco, earthiness, light carmnel and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth dry lingering tobacco finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9586) - Hanover, Maryland, 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.

hopscotch (9042) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle... Pours dark – burnt orange when held up to bright light – with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose is mostly grapefruit and pine, however, digging deeper, I came across plenty of brown sugar, caramel and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Leans way toward the bitter side of balance – roasty, caramel sweetness overwhelmed by more-than-adequate, citrusy, earthy bitterness. Lengthy bittersweet (more bitter than sweet) finish. Bottle courtesy of scraff!

daknole (9042) - 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.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2007
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.

Sammy (8524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2009
Found at Premiere Gourmet. Pours a dark amber colour. Full mouthfeel that is very hoppy. Like a Double IPA, tasty orange-grapefruit citrus.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
Deep amber brown beer with a lot of haze. The aroma is pretty solid. Big spicy/earthy hop nose with a lot of orange peel and herbal notes as well. Dark chewy malts with a bit of crackery/bready malts. Orange peel and a sweet but restrained maltiness. The hops seem to be fading a bit allowing a bready matliness to come to the fore. Sort of a light rummy spiciness as well. It’s lightly vineous, but also quite restrained. Light stone fruit on the back. It’s pretty tasty really.

GT2 (8352) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tap at Paradiso courtesy of Travlr. Pours a clear deep red with a decent tan head that leaves excellent sheety lace. (This was served in 100% the wrong glassware). Excellent piney, resinous fresh hop nose with some toast and caramel. Taste is sweet, malt-forward, a bit boozy, and then disintegrates into medicinal cherry syrup.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2008
12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler. Thanks! Pours a brownish red with a medium frothy head. Low head retention. Malty brown sugar aroma with citrus hop notes. Taste is brown sugar, toffee, citrus and leafy hop notes and vanilla. Full bodied. Very nice.
