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.

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.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2009
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

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2012
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.

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.

Sarlacc83 (810) - Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Thanks! A: Dark mahogany with a light cappuccino head. Decent lacing. N: Toffee, rye bread, pine, caramel, and a hint of vanilla and licorice. Tree bark, and peppercorn. A touch of bubble gum floating around in here. T: Spicy, bitter, and moderately sweet. M: Sticky, medium to heavy body. Alcohol is well-hidden. O: A peppery barleywine with hops to spare. I can’t say how I actually feel about it, though. I tend to prefer more sweetness, but this has a nice balance. I would just like something less spicy.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Pours a cloudy, deep rusty red with woody mahogany hints. A thin off-white head fully dissipates immediately. Toasted grain and multiple hop direction leads in the nose. Grapefruit and spruce/pine mintiness is blunt. Alcohol is strong but sweet and fruity. Toasted grains are very burnt and slightly acrid. The flavor is not as bitter as expected, but is indeed highly hoppy. Depth of complexity is modest. Sweetness is medium. The finish is chewy and malty, semi-sweet and lightly bitter. The mouthfeel is sticky and medium-full bodied. Not as interesting as I’d hoped.

Tap->honker: Pours a thin white head atop a murky, dark amber body. A mild, sweet aroma. Full bodied, moderately sweet, but not too heavy, finishing with a pleasant sweetness and a general sweetness on the tongue.
