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.

Dogbrick (12365) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Cask version at Winking Lizard’s 2nd Annual Real Ale Fest (03/27/10): The beer pours an amber-brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee and citrus. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, citrus, toffee and light hops. The finish is molasses and toffee and leaves a malty aftertaste. Above average overall.
