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.

Bottle. 2010. lots of sweet grapefruit and darker caramel malt. being relatively fresh, the hops are still there which leaves quite a bitter finish. Slightly messy, over a year or two i expect this to really come together.

On tap at celebration of the suds in AC. Pours foggy dark red/brown with a slight tan head that fades into nothing quickly. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, hint of yeast. Flavor is heavy on the dark fruits with a nice roasted chocolate finish. Some citrus and candi sugar throughout.

Lurking in the cellar for over a year I finally caved. The label was crying out for attention and I was in the mood for a mellow barleywine. The result was a nice evening spent reflecting on what time can do to a solid beer. This particular one has held up very well although I doubt I would want to age it must past a year. Already some of the best characteristics seemed to be fading away.

Aroma / Appearance - An opaque mahogany body was like a glass full of muddy pond water after a strong storm. The head was th color of old paper left to yellow in the sunlight. Hot chocolate with an old book on the back porch or patio brings to mind a cool fall afternoon. Warm, open, and soothing the impact is instantly inviting.

Flavor / Palate - A thick chunk of melted caramel flowed across the tongue and down the throat. Warming the palate gently at first it built to a crescendo around halfway through the bottle. The roasted nutty finish then lingered for quite a while even after wrapping up the remnants. Overall it was a bit like licking a pile of acorns. This has some promise and probably was best enjoyed a few months ago but such is the nature of cellaring. Maybe next time I’ll try it on tap to compare.

Pours a ruddy brown with hints of orange gleaming around the edges. Aroma is piney and resinous, with a brown sugar, malty backbone. Flavor is much more hop forward than I particularly like in a BW. Alcohol becomes evident on the finish, warming on the way down. Nice.

12oz bottle from BrianK. Thanks dude. Served in my reidel snifter. Pours cloudy brown with a nice half finger head. The nose is floral with a bit of a hoppy edge. Taste is sweet but bitter with a citrus feeling to it. Overall pretty nice but thin on the palate and oddly bitter on some levels. Lets see how it warms up.

Bottle@Home. Not very strong aroma, black currant, wet clothes and some coffee can be found. Dark ruby color, beige fine head, good lace. Very sweet, very bitter, very fruity, licorice wood, quite complex flavours. Full with a dry finish. Nice complexity but lot the balance a bit.

Aroma of citrus and pine hops with big caramel malt and a distinct, odd sort of sweet aroma, really sweet fruit or yogurt or something... Flavor also had some very sweet dessert notes, maybe in the area of praline, in addition to more of the nice hopping and more expected rich caramel malt. There was also an odd side to the flavor with some meaty notes for me as well. This beer was kind of all over the place for me, even the praline notes seemed out of place somehow, though pleasant in its own right. A lot of good stuff, and nothing terribly bad-tasting, but left me more confused than anything.
