750ml capped bottle poured into hefeweizen glass. Color is dark reddish-brown with 1 finger head. Smells of sugar and floral hops. Taste is of sweet caramel with mildly bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation and a little alcohol burn at the end. Very drinkable.

Cloudy dark amber with ample foam, got to be unfiltered. Aroma of caramel, molasses, raisin, and some citrus. Starts with sweet toasted grains and toffee and then follows quickly with moderately bitter hop finish. A little bit of booziness, but really drinkable for a barleywine. Great rounded taste and another excellent beer from Troegs!

ahh, very... toffe taste. Good and smooth, but not sessionable, one 25 oz is good. Without An alcohol taste. Or is that butterscotch.... I believe this would be A perfect beer after shoveling your driveway in mid winter, otherwise , after a hard played softball game at twilight .

Pours a pretty, dark, coca-cola like brown color. But the head...oh the head. It foams into two fingers of creamy burnt orange. It's unlike any beer I've seen I would say?
Don't love the smell of this, but my mind changes all the time on barelywines. Dominated by sweet malt, hops barely in the background with such a domination by the maltiness, and an almost burnt TOFFEE taste. Not that you taste smoke or burning, and not that its bad, but it's that powerful
This thing is great, but it's a lot of flavor. Honestly when I first had it, I couldn't handle the heavy sweet malt combined with the dry hop. But glad I waited to review as I've come around - this thing is really interesting. Sweet toffee, a dry hops, and a heavy malt dominate the flavor. The hoppiness has a quality that's almost like liquorice. It's such a unique flavor I'm almost at a loss for words
I have to be in the right mood, clearly, but this is a big time beer. Troegs is the shit and have changed my opinion beer yet again

Very bitter hops. I love barley wine, and Flying Mouflan is typical in it’s well defined uncorrupted hop and malt flavors, but this isn’t my favorite. Finishes smoother than it starts.

22 oz. Kind of remiknds me of a cross between a Double IPA and a Barleywine style ale. A very pretty dark amber color with a very small off white head. Aroma of a nice amount of fresh hops with a citrusy malt. The flavor is hoppy but when it first hits your tongue there is a peach-like flavor that immediately dissapears. The caramel malty flavor then comes through on the finish.

Awesome!!!! "We classify this beer as pushing Nugget Nectar off the side of a cliff. It is bold and intense–think hops dipped in candied sugar and rolled in dark chocolate nibs. Over time, the Flying Mouflan transforms into lush raisin and chocolate overtones as the hops subside and the rich barley flavors come out in the beer.” — John Trogner Perfect description of this fantastic beer.

Poured a nice mahogany. Little to no head. Nice big body with nice subtle hop profile just enough to let you know its there. Nice sweet subtle favors of malty goodness. Big thumbs up from me.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small biege head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, and tobacco. Taste is leather/Tobacco, caramel, fig, and grass. Although it is a pretty well balanced barley wine its Mouthful is a tad thin for me.

Huge thanks to The_Epeeist for this.
Pours a dark chestnut into my giant snifter with the tiniest head that disappears quickly leaving some lacing.
Smell: The best nose on a barleywine I’ve smelt in a long time, maybe it’s the huge snifter, but I doubt it. Really Earthy, Citrus and Caramel dominate with Rum, Rasins, and Toffee.
Taste: Sweet, Fruity, Caramel, Woody(I’d swear this was oaked), a little bit of Dark Fruits, Pine, Citrus, Burnt Sugar aftertaste. Heavy and Smooth.
