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.

ManvsCity (180) - Redmond, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 Bomber from Chuck’s in Bowling Green. Half inch quickly dissipating head, off white, with a hint of greenish brown, solid lacing as it fades. Body is a dark brown, growing cloudy at bottom of the bottle. Dark cocoa, almost bitter chocolate dances through the floral hops and rich maltiness. At first, it feels lighter than most barleywine, but the alcohol heat catches up with you quickly. Really a unique beer. Wish I could have cellared a couple of bottles to compare next year. Not quite as mellow as it warms.

Hops and sugary malt aroma. The flavor of hops dominates, which I really enjoy in this style. Pours a dark, murky amber with hints of orange. The head is small and short-lived, quickly leaving a collar and traces of lacing

Bomber thanks to funkybrewster. Pours a typical barley-wine color, glowing mahogany, looks slightly more viscous. Aroma of oxidized piney hops and some cardboard, light bit of cherry, rich caramel. Flavor is a bit boozy, sticky sweet caramel, piney, cardboard, off oxidation character, very very sugary sweet.

Bottle from total wine chantilly. Pours really really brown with a thin khaki head. A hint of caramel on the nose. Mouth tastes of alcohol and antifreeze. Lots of alcohol on the tongue. Finishes with a slight kick. I’m not a big fan of barley wine. I’m not quite sure, even now, to expect from a style that seems to exist to exude rudeness be inhospitable.

Atom (1281) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bomber shared by mattyb83 pours a murky amber/brown with a thin caramel head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, hops, and raisins. Taste starts with slight hops and citrus followed by rich earthy caramel, toffee, and chocolate malts, finishing sweet with hop spice. Nice.

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.
