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.

Aroma has notes of caramel, toasted malts, brown sugar, dried dark fruits, sherry and a ton of citrus hops. Murky dark brown hue with a small mostly diminishing tan head that left little lace. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a very nice barley wine that should age remarkably well. There is a ton of hops in here so some age should mellow it a bit. The Malt base is wonderful as it the palate. Very good one. -Fish!

Nice hop aroma, not bitter but floral and sweet. Strawberries and pineapple. Pours a reddish brown, thick creamy head. It’s has such and interesting look to it. Black current tartness upfront, with strawberries, and cherry sweetness. It has such a great bitter hop finish. Palate is the most balanced barley wine I’ve consumed so far. The hop bitterness is smooth and tingly on the tongue. Sweet and wonderful.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown-maroon with a bubbly head. Intense resinous hops aroma, I also get some raisin and caramel in there. Taste is mostly hops due to the nose, very bitter with a sugary undertone, the malty caramel is also very present. Thick and sticky mouthfeel. I think this feels more like a double IPA considering the intense hop character, very nice though, this beer is big.

Beerapprentice (207) - Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2010
Pours a deep, dark amber color with a beige head. Wow, this aroma is heaven in a bottle. It’s killer!!! The aroma is of toffee, citrus, pine, caramel, and lovely simcoe hops. Perhaps there’s also suggestions of mango, molasses, brandy, and creme brulee’s crunchy top. Palate is full and rich. This was amazing!!! Thanks adrian910ss.

From tap. Light malty aroma. Dark appearance with thin white head. Good malt and hop balance. Floral hop and caramel malt taste. Light bitter finish. Pretty good beer for the price on draft.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2010
There’s so much going on with this beer, it’s going to be tough to nail down. Pours hazy rusty brown with nice thick head. Aroma of woodsy hop, roast, sweet malt....dried fruit...and something more savory, like salami. Slightly sweet to start, then a wallop of woodsy, resiny and slightly herby hops. All with an undertone of light roast and a little candy sweetness. Little bit of peppery alcohol on the finish. Very nice, really interesting. Definitely a winner.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Original Scratch 4-2007, 12 oz. bottle. Pours cloudy amber brown with a lot of small floaters and a decent tan head that subsides to a ring that leaves some spotty lace. Aroma is oaky and woody with dark fruits and citrus hops. Flavor is hop dominated with still lots of citrus character. The woody, bourbony vibe comes through as well, along with some sweet fruity malts in the background, somewhat overshadowed by the other, more prominent flavors. Medium-full bodied and smooth with a bitter hoppy finish. Some alcohol presence in both the nose and palate. Good and unique hop-forward barleywine. Surprised the hops held up so well after 2+ years of aging and that the alcohol is still noticeable.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 Bomber from Chuck’s in Bowling Green. Half inch quickly dissipating head, off white, with a hint of greenish brown, solid lacing as it fades. Body is a dark brown, growing cloudy at bottom of the bottle. Dark cocoa, almost bitter chocolate dances through the floral hops and rich maltiness. At first, it feels lighter than most barleywine, but the alcohol heat catches up with you quickly. Really a unique beer. Wish I could have cellared a couple of bottles to compare next year. Not quite as mellow as it warms.
