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.

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 (976) - 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.

12oz bottle, big thanks to mj for this one. pours dark brownish-ruby color with small off white head. nose is extremely fruity, mainly passion fruit, but banana, mango as well. flavor is red and dark fruits, some caramel malts, but a stale grainy flavor in there too. i don’t like the way these flavors are melding at all. more of a messy fruity hop nose with a weak boring malt base. alcohol is hidden well. light body. the hop and malt flavors aren’t doing it for me and it’s hard for me to understand the high ratings for this one.

Maybe it was the surroundings and the other brews i had before this, but i just didn’t get this beer- even surprised to see here, its a barleywine .. . some rum, toffee, and spice all blended up and hatched out of a sick chicken .. . Troegs can do better .. . word

LetsGoState (580) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Appearance is a medium cream head with a deep amber. Aroma is a little sweet. Taste is strong with a balance between the sweeter malts and bitter hops. Overall pretty solid.

weihenweizen (1619) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear reddish amber with big dense beige head that stays a good while. Aroma is piney hops, very little carbonation, a little lacing, and thin body. Taste is light dark malt and finishes with a harsh bitterness. Ok for a barleywine.

Bottle. Murky, chocolate brown color that looks downright awful. This looks like there is a bit of foam sitting atop a bristol 7 diarrhea. I hope things get better from here, as this may be one of the worst looking beers I have seen. Seems to be a pretty hop-forward barleywine. Seems like a combination of toffee, lemon pinesol, and caramel. It’s pretty rough on the nose. Flavor is pretty gross. Raisins, dust, some orange, and caramel. Light to medium body, with a slightly bitter finish. This is just a big miss for me. I had read many great things about this beer, but it just was not enjoyable. I felt the same way after drinking the first bottle I had, too.

cheap (3966) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 Initially, did not think of this as a BW. Been wanting to try this bullshit for a while. I think I couldn’t bring myself to pay the extra cash for this one. On tap athe bocktown monaca, nice place. Muted IPA aroma. Brownish yet clear. Nice lacing fer sure. Weird floral perfumy thing developing on the taste buds. A piercing bitter thing strats happenen in the back of the throat, not dull, sharp and pointed. Not thinking much about this brew. Distracting like a loud MP player in the back of a classroom. This ipa thing, without being an ipa is causing me great discomfort. Hey, now I see its a barelywine, heheh; yes it does hide its 10% rather well. Back of throat rude funny hicky poaking the point of an artificial hop in there. I am however, surprized to find some fizz in this BW; makes it more like a strong american ale. How can this be in the same cat as harvey’s? hehheh
