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.

Dark red, coppery pour with a thick tan head that looks more dense than fluffy. Nice lacing. Not much of an aroma. Some hops, caramel, dark fruit. Full body with a creamy, oily texture. Very sweet and malty. Definitely getting some toffee, figs, even a bit of chocolate. Very mellow hop character that adds a touch of balance. I havent had many barley wines but this is excellent. I cant wait to go back to the brewery and grab another one to cellar!

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.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Tap->honker: Pours a thin white head atop a murky, dark amber body. A mild, sweet aroma. Full bodied, moderately sweet, but not too heavy, finishing with a pleasant sweetness and a general sweetness on the tongue.

Poured a cloudy mahogany color with a light tan head. Aroma is earthy, leaves, floral, citrus, caramel, and a very faint banana smell. Taste is bitter citrus, molasses, pine, nuts, chocolate, and a bitter, boozey finish.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Delicious barley wine aroma of caramel, brown sugar, and a touch of fruit. Flavor is more caramel and toasted malt with a nice hint of hops on the finish. Very smooth. Good beer.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2011
Poured a rusty red, very murky. A finger’s worth of foam which quickly dissipated. The aroma is heavy on pepper, spice and licorice. The taste certainly has a good bit of spicy hops up front and licorice, though the spicy flavor comes through stronger as the beer warms up. Alcohol is barely discernable. Very soft on the palate. A very interesting and excellent brew.

Very good beer. Tastes of coffee and vanilla, with a strongly alcoholic whiskey type taste.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Dark brown pour with a moderate off-white head. Hoppy, sweet, and a little spicy aroma. Rich, big mouth feel, with some hop bitterness, and a big hit of malt and dried fruit at the end. excellent.
