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.

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.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2011
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.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bomber. Deep chestnut pur supporting a thick and long lasting dark tan head. Thick lacing. Big malty aroma. Malt takes center stage throughout with dark fruits, caramel, vanilla and alcohol. Texture was a bit chewy. Long, sweet finish.

Bottle thanks to BMart. Pours a murky dark red. minimal off white head. Nose is honey sweet lacking most esters. Taste is similar. Slightly chewy with some candy, fruit roll up flavors but not much complexity. Drinkable but other than fruitiness kinda bland. No alcohol warming. Clean.

DavoleBomb (1487) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Poured into a snifter. 2011 vintage. 3.5 A: Ruddy plum brown color. Two fingers of beige, frothy on the bottom, foamy on the top head. Retention is alright given the ABV and a small ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Caramel and brown sugar with plum, light fig, and melon fruitiness. There’s a good bit of hoppiness to this. Grapefruit, pine, and a touch of citrus. 3.5 T: Tastes like the nose. Caramel, brown sugar, and just a touch of toffee. Plum, raisin, fig, and melon fruitiness. Moderate bitterness with grapefruit, pine, and citrus hop flavor. 4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth. 3.5 D: Honestly I’m a bit shocked. Every other time I’ve had this I’ve enjoyed it much more. Of course, I never had it around the six month period. It seems like I’m right in the middle of this beer’s awkward stage. I think I might re-review this at the one year mark. When this is fresh, the hops pop and give it a malty DIPA vibe. When this is old, the malts really shine. Right now, I can’t say either of those things. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-14-2011 05:14:07

Bottle. Pours a brown lot of head. Smells tastes of pine citrus maple sugar. Sweet with a bite of hops. I’m tried of hoppy barley wines I think. Bring on the booze. Not bad for the type of barley wine that it is.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours murky brown with a thin bubbly head. Nose is bready, a bit yeasty, and a touch of herbal hoppiness. Taste is more hoppy, herbal with light yeast and lots of dry bread. Gentle body, with soft carbonation.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Bottle shared by lb4lb at his tasting. Poured a murky, light brown caramel color with a thin beige head that diminished to a ring. Aroma of sweet, lightly metallic caramel and some moderate citrus and brown sugar. Light, sweet malt entry with some caramel and a metallic hint leading into a light hop presence with some citrus that finishes slightly dry. Smooth, but a bit thin. Perhaps it is just past its prime, but it just wasn’t that great.

On tap at my farewell to NY party at Blind Tiger. Pours auburn. The aroma is 100% butterscotch. Nauseatingly so. Flavor has some coconut but again massive butterscotch. Off-the-charts diabetes readings here. Fairly one-dimensional and cloying.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a very ugly dark brownish color with a creamy off white head. Murky and dark. Nose is piney hops with some caramel malt notes. Palate is velvety with a clean finish. Flavor is piney hops with some caramel sweetness, some dates and raisins. I was fairly unimpressed by this and found it to be a little over done.
