22oz bottle, 1 year aged. Amber color disipating off white head. Aromas are malty, figs, raisins, pretty rich overall. The nose has really held up well. First sip is really interesting, big hops are still present in the finish, big sweet malty up front, mid palate is thick, tons of life in it. I’d give it another year anyways for re-review to see how it has progressed. Really balanced, rich raisiny palate. So good. 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 robgibbens (432) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Pours a dark brown and has crimson-brown edges when held to light. The foam is short but lacing coats the glass. The aroma is full of caramel and nuttiness. I detect some spiciness in the background. The taste has a strong bitter component and the alcohol comes through. There is a bit of sourness at the end. The beer is full-bodied with a bitter finish. vmilaxer29 (427) - Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a dark reddish brown with medium khaki head. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, spicy, floral, and slightly fruity. The taste is really well balanced between malt and hops with a really nice firm hop bitterness. This is a quite enjoyable barley wine.

Bottle pours reddish brown with thin tan head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruits and some alcohol. Moderately sweet caramel flavor with raisins, brown sugar and iced tea. A little alcohol coming through. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Good job, Troegs.

Pours a brilliant orange brown hue with a one inch head. Aromas of caramel and fruity hops. Tastes very rich with caramel, fruit, citrus, and chocolate. A really interesting dessert beer. imadeadguy (378) - back in NJ!, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2009
22oz. "Flying Mouflan". Pour is deep ruby red/brown with a tan lacy head. Aromas of gummy bears, sweet potato, and more candy. Flavor is carmel, gummy bears, citrus, piney hops, and a nice smooth finish. This thing is insanly drinkable and full bodied. No alcohol present at all. Amazing brew here! happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2010
This 22oz. beauty was gifted to me from Mike J. @ Wine World(Thanks Mike!) :D Bottled 4/6/10. Nice woft of fresh hoppage after the first crack. Mmm those malts. Dark rich chocolaty a tad of bottle cap(metallic) in the nose. Nice hops. So far this ale has held up excellent. A super fresh Moufy is what I’m after. What a wonderful barleywine, unique and impressive. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2010
