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.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a barleywine. This hits me as a dark ipa. Tan head that fades quick but clings. Hoppy yet sweet. I like most of the Troegs brews and this is no exception.

22 oz bottle - pours caramel-red with medium lasting tan-white head. Aromas of cocoa, hops, malty figgy goodness. Full-bodied, big palate with bittering hoppy finish. Tasty tasty tasty!!! Bosworth!

Bottle courtesy of BA’er @Casey3236. Pours a mostly opaque deep nutty brown, with hints of rich woody red. Creamy tan head that held pretty well before fading into a medium collar and a few wisps. Sticky legs and good lacing. Aroma is molasses, deep earthy malt, woody, some leathery damp soil. Taste is dark caramel, nutti-chocolate with some almond like toastiness, leather and earth. Rich mouthfeel, full bodied and low to medium carbonation. I think I aged this one a bit too long, or maybe not long enough. That dirt-like flavor is a little off putting.

Huge thanks to MordorMongo from BeerAdvocate for supplying this one as a generous extra. A dark oak pour with low clarity, a frothing beige head that grows with the pour and retains pretty stubbornly, lovely lacing. Massive aroma, beautifully balanced with no apparent booze, this thing reeks of gravity of all sorts. Taste is interesting, the heavy malts don’t have the presence that I thought they would - the hops here dominate an underpowered malt profile, still a gorgeous mix though, reminiscent of a west coast BW, it reminds my of a heartier Old Ruffian that would probably slide into the typical barleywine malt/hop equilibrium with some age. Mouthfeel is fitting for the style, no complaints really. I’m very grateful for getting the chance to try this foreign elixir, would love to throw one or two in the cellar some day - straight to my wants!

Heh, John Troeg pulled this one himself for me. Not what I was expecting for a barleywine. After discussion with John, he likes to brew an extra hoppy and sweet barley wine, and prefers them to be drunk early as opposed to laying them down, although, he says, and I agree, this may last a 2-5 year laydown to mature. Very sweet on the nose, almost rose like. Not too fluffy on the head, nice malt character to balance out the extra hops. I had a slight orange hint to it, just slightly. A little roast as well, not a char, but a light, light roast.. better than, say the nut brown which is supposed to be maltier. No real prune or rasin taste as I’ve had in most barleywines, nor the overwhelming butterscoth, whcih, for this, fits it well. I wonder if they may make this a standard batch...walked away with a growler full (On Tap 10/13/2007)

Aroma of caramel and a touch of hops. Flavor brings tons of sweet yet not cloying caramel. Rich mouthfeel, very nice.

41cubs (249) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Smells of sweet clementine and pine with the alcohol punch coming at the end. Flavor is a study of malt/hop balance. Taste like citrus rum cake, with orange peel being the dominant citrus here. The malt is present all the way through bringing a cake-like doughyness to the whole thing. There is a buttery presence throughout as well. Maybe a little too hot at the finish. Great slick mouthfeel that fills in all the crevices. Great Brew. Thanks Troegs. 2009 22oz.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a pinch of tan head. Smell: Toffee, pine, grapefruit, chocolate, a touch of booze and some cherry. Caramel, toffee, pine, grapefruit, chocolate, booze and some dark fruits. Thick on the palate with agreat hoppy pine and boozy finish.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2010
Intriguing brew. Pours amber-brown with a tenacious tan head. Sweet caramel malt wafts into the nose, then red fruity hops, floral undertones and coco nibs. Taste is sweet, dried fruits, bitter hops and warming brandy. Palate is thick, chewy and luscious with strong alcohol behind the pronounced malt backbone. A unique barleywine in my books, transcending many styles. brown amber, sweet caramel malt, red fruity hops, floral undertone, rich, coco nibs, chewy, tick luscious and warming, strong acohol behind the rich malt character

nittanytide (238) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Poured deep mahogany with a small, white head. Aroma is winter fruit and bread. Taste is raisin (prune?) and apricot, with a unusually dry hop finish for a barley wine.
