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.

22oz. "Flying Mouflan". Pour is deep ruby red/brown with a tan lacy head. Aromas of gummy bears, sweet potato, and more candy. Flavor is carmel, gummy bears, citrus, piney hops, and a nice smooth finish. This thing is insanly drinkable and full bodied. No alcohol present at all. Amazing brew here!

This 22oz. beauty was gifted to me from Mike J. @ Wine World(Thanks Mike!) :D Bottled 4/6/10. Nice woft of fresh hoppage after the first crack. Mmm those malts. Dark rich chocolaty a tad of bottle cap(metallic) in the nose. Nice hops. So far this ale has held up excellent. A super fresh Moufy is what I’m after. What a wonderful barleywine, unique and impressive.

Poured a very dark amber with little head. The aroma is not very exciting, slightly on the hoppy side. The flavor is outstanding, just a really good mellow beer with a nice mix of hops and malt that seems to be a perfect balance. The 9% alcohol is not overpowering. For as large a beer as this is, it is very easy to drink. An excellent barleywine.

Pours dark amber with a light ring for a head. Aroma is sweet caramel, figs, licorice and vanilla. Flavor has a bit left over hop bitterness, vanilla, caramel malts and hints of figs. Light carbonation and light bodied. Alright barlywine.

Clear brown pour with a tan head. Big aroma - strong hops presence, and strong sugary/honey component. Hoppy flavor on top of a strong sugary base and also bit of dark fruit (this has more hops than I’m used to in a barley wine). Bitter finish with a much fainter amount of sugar. Light bodied and lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Good beer, but there are other barley wine style beers that I would recommend before this one.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2010
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!

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2012
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.

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.
