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.

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.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. The aroma is vanilla and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and vanilla with caramel and light dry finish. A good barleywine from Troegs.

Scopey (5518) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Leighton at THE Barley Wine Tasting, August 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a minimal tan head. The nose is juicy dark fruit: prune, raisin, plum, as well as light roastiness, caramel and chocolate. The taste is wood, earth, charcoal, bitter and milk chocolate, dark fruit, caramel and some meatiness, with a dry finish. Pretty boozy. Full body and fine carbonation. A solid barley wine, but nothing spectacular.

mikesaum (592) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pourd darker than most barleywines, khaki head no lace. Aroma is booze and toffee with dark fruit. Taste is raisins and toffee, brown sugar, very smooth and super drinkable.
