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.

daknole (10863) - 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.

hopscotch (10601) - 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!

kermis (10000) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours red/brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, dark fruit and pine. Flavour is medium to heavy sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle shared by sarro. Poured a deep amber with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was sweet with grains and caramel and just a slight bitter backing from the hops. Flavor was similar with the sweet grains and caramel dominating the finish but combining nicely with a growing pine hop note.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2007
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.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
2008-08-07. Dark brown body with a creamy tan head. Interesting aroma, hoppy over top of dark malts, lightly leafy character. (7+) Flavour is similar with leafy hops over a malty base. Light earthy malt notes, caramel touches. Smooth average plus bodied palate. Very enjoyable. May have to get some more of this. Bottle, Premier Gourmet, Buffalo
