On tap in a 10oz glass at Bodega on 6/29/10

Dark amber brown; some cloudiness. Poured a thin layer of short-lived foam. Ring on retention & one solitary spot of lace.

Lots of hops in the nose. Floral overtones with dense, juicy citrus & some pine. Caramel & a touch of brown sugar. Smells an awful lot like an Imperial Red Ale.

Tastes like a cross between an Imperial Red & a Barleywine. Malts are more apparent: toasted caramel & brown sugar. Maybe a slight hint of toffee, but not much. Dense, resiny hops, blending citrus & pine tar.

Full bodied; carbonation is moderately low - just enough. Gritty, sticky-sweet feel. Mild alcohol heat. Juicy hops & caramel finish it out.

Drinkability is ok, I guess. I find it too sweet. Somewhat off-kilter for the style, seemingly Flying Mouflan isn't set on being a Barleywine. Overall it's alright, but really weird. I have to dock it for style.

Reading other, very enthusiastic reviews, I'm not even certain I had the same beer. Aroma was lovely and it looks great, but this just seemed wildly overhopped to me, like a glass of thick grapefruit juice, with the malty goodness I detected in the nose completely overpowered by citrus, citrus, citrus. I love Troegs; maybe this one is just not my style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Got a bomber of the Flying Mouflan at Hoosick Beverage in Troy NY for $7.99. Served mostly cold in a Harpoon tulip.

An average pour generates about 3" of creamy bubbly orangey-tan foam. The brew itself is a dark brown color that gives deep orange-red highlights when held to a light. The smell is sweet, a mix of dark and candy sugars, an intense clash between fruity esters and caramel, butter and smoke. The taste is much the same but at somewhat different proportions. Compared to the smell the taste is stronger on bitter hops and smoke, with the same butter and fruit elements also present. The finish is of lingering smoke, citrus hop, and peppery alcohol. Mouthfeel is moderate-high in thickness, about average for the style.

Overall it is pretty complex and the individual elements are all good, but together it is completely jumbled and goes in too many directions at once. This is a train wreck of a beer, completely incoherent. I had high hopes for this because I have a high opinion of Troegs, and this makes it that much more disappointing.

This tastes like a very young barleywine that desperately needs some mellowing time in the bottle. Damn good reason to put dates on the bottle. And don't bother shipping it out until it's had a couple months to age at the brewery.

This one pours a dark amber color with a decent light tan head.

The nose on this one is mostly bitter hops, with a very faint malt background.

Taste is bitter and pine hops. The alcohol is pretty up front with a slight malt aftertaste.

This is a strong representation of the standard. I'm not a big bittering hops fan, so my ratings reflect this.

the beer pours and looks great. burnt caramel color with nice head and good lacing. however, for me, that's where it ends. Nose is WAY too sweet (esp for the abv being relatively low for a barleywine). has light carbonation, which is nice. def. has some burnt caramel notes, and finishes very very sweet...

wasn't impressed and probably wouldn't get it again
