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.

I will need to rerate this one after some time. Very hoppy overall with loads of piney bitterness. Not balanced for me right now. Lots of sweetness and alcohol but bitterness and astringency dominating right now.

Bottle... Pours dark – burnt orange when held up to bright light – with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose is mostly grapefruit and pine, however, digging deeper, I came across plenty of brown sugar, caramel and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Leans way toward the bitter side of balance – roasty, caramel sweetness overwhelmed by more-than-adequate, citrusy, earthy bitterness. Lengthy bittersweet (more bitter than sweet) finish. Bottle courtesy of scraff!

Bomber. Clear dark amber with a massive yellowy/tan head. Sweet orange citrus and earthen nose, some toffee. Sweet toffee and bitter orange flavors, somewhat earthy. Another good offering from Troeg’s.

Rando7 (732) - Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle pour gives reddish brown dark color with thin off-white head. Aroma malts and pine, Taste rich caramel, brown sugar, pine, citrus. Finish pine hops. Minimal alcohol. Palate thick and smooth, not syrupy. Pretty hoppy but well balanced Just too hoppy for me but will appeal to many.

1/15/11. Bottle shared at the Sea Bass going away party! Relatively mild aroma and flavor with bitter malts and big doses of grape, dark fruits, and more. Not bad.

On tap at Mad Mex in Robinson. I’m usually not a big fan of Barley Wines, but I had to try this one after it was recommended from another non Barley Wine drinker. Very unique flavor, complexity in the brew. It doesn’t have that “punch you in the face” sweetness heavy feeling. I have to admit, this is one I could drink over and over again. The alcohol is well hidden in this brew.

Bottle shared by ryandevilhorns at my beer tasting. Poured a brownish reddish pour with small head. This was somewhat sweet and had an interesting grainy taste. Before I knew what it was I would have never guessed barley wine.

This beer was the very much an old ale. I am not sure what they mean by a barley wine. The beer tasted so much like an old curmudgeon. Good, not great.
