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.

Very interesting brew!! Poured a very dark amber with a beige head a good lacing throughout. Aromas were of mild sweetness, some candied sugars and mild chocolate. Flavors were typical of a sweet barleywine with a mild hop background that balanced the flavor very nicely. Medium bodied texture and a great finish. Very unique and flavorful beer ... kind of like someone poured a snort of IPA into my barleywine - can’t wait to have this one again!!

I really enjoyed this BW and am glad I was able to secure 2 bottles so I can cellar on for a cold winter night. It’s currently pegged for Christmas tree decorating night. This is a beautifully balanced beer with a sweet warm nose. It has a charming mahogany color and tastes of dark fruit, carmel, with just enough malty breadiness to hide the booze. It is no wonder why this beer was chosen to be the first of the scratch series to be put into normal production. I highly recommend grabing a couple bottles if you can. Somehow drinking this on a cool summer night just isn’t right, this beer made me long for the 1rst snowfall of the year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is what you call a bouquet. There’s syrup and molasses and citrus and honey and just a whole mish mosh of all sorts of fruits and sugars. The flavor is just as colorful with a strong initial punch of sweet followed by a bitter bite. The palate is wonderfully smooth. You think it will finish harshly, but it doesn’t. Looks great too!

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!

12oz. Bottle: Aroma is medium bitter. Smells very hoppy with notes of Simcoe hops, pine, resin, grapefruit and toasted malts. Poured burgundy in color with hints of brown, ruby, and grape with a small, beige head that diminished but lasted throughout. Excellent lacing. Opaque. Flavor is medium bitter. Tastes of hops, Simcoe hops, chocolate, toasted malts, raisin, resin, and pine. Medium to full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, hoppy, creamy finish.

Poured a hazy red color with a medium sized tan head. Big citrus hop over a full sweet fruity malt base. Some pine and white sugar. The flavor is big and full with a good balanced mix of fruity malt, piny hops, and alcohol warmth. The sweetness defends to huge hop flavor. I wish this came in a 22oz. Full bodied. One of the better American barleywines I have had in a while.

Pours out a nice ruby brown color with a small lacing white head. Aroma is of pine hops, sweet fruity malts and slight chocolate/caramel. Taste is very complex, pine/citrus hops up front followed by candi sugar, caramel, dark fruits and slight bitterness/alcohol on the finish. Very solid, usually not a style I"m particularly fond of but Troegs raised the bar on this one.

Thanks to lb4lb for just giving me this bottle to try. Pours a muddy brown with only a slight head that almost instantly left the glass. A little bit of lacing. Smell is huge, sweet caramel. Not entirely complex but quite nice nonetheless. Taste is huge creamy caramel up front with a decent hop bitterness fading into the after taste. Quite viscous. A nice barleywine, I really enjoyed this one.

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.

Bottled. Poured deep orangey-brown with a creamy cap of beige head. The aroma picked up a rich array of darker fruits and tosted toffee with notes of caramel and brown sugar as well.. there was also ample and engaging hop presence represented by spicy floral and citrus.. the balance was there, and this was a real treat to smell! The flavor was skewed just slightly toward the hoppage with aged floral notes and citrus strewn throughout.. sweet toffee and caramel for support.. finished spicier with citrus bitterness and raisiny notes. Heavier-bodied with moderate carbonation that moved it well across the palate.. warm at the back and memorable. Great, great brew!
