look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours with a decent-sized bright-tan head over a deep and cloudy amber body - tons of lacing... very nice looking BW.

Strong, yet inviting aromas. Lots of hop presence, with thick bitter barley. Great caramel to butterscotch sweetness.

Flavors are rich with bitter barley and molasses-like syrupy sweetness. Bright hop presence and condensed tree fruits dominate, but the alcohol warmth is really subdued relative to others in this style. Not terribly thick on the palate, and has enough of a bite in the finish to keep it from cloying.

Drinkability is easily among the best fot the style. Awesome balance.

Poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a deep ruby color with caramel highlights. One full finger of thick, frothy head. Thick and bubbly sheets of lace on the glass.

S: Sweet caramel and candied malts with some subdued tropical fruits. Pineapple and a subtle citrus quality round out the hop profile.

T: Heavy caramel malts complemented with surprisingly juicy hops flavors. A very well balanced flavor. Citrus, a hint of lemon, and pineapple. A subtle roasted characteristic here to the malts.

M: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Resinous hop flavor but the bitterness is quelled a bit with the malts.

D: A good American Barleywine. A sipper that gives off a little heat towards the end of the bottle.

This was the last of my four new treats imbibed during my visits last week to the Tröegs Brewery. Anyone know what a Flying Mouflan is, btw? Looks sort of like the Golden Snitch...

Filling my glass this time was a clear, deep, rich, dark chestnut/mahogany liquid. The head was a bit thin, light tan in color, and mostly rimmed the edge with lacing. The aroma was enticing, with toffee and caramel malts filling the air. This one had a chewy, medium-plus body, and passed very smoothly towards the stomach.

Lots of malt was present flavor-wise, with the toffee-caramel sweetness covering the palate. Throw in a bit of dark fruit action, and there ya go!! Some floral hopping appears, but it is restrained. Also, in the finish, there was some earthy as well as resiny characteristics. Though listed as an American BW and not an English one, it reminded me a lot of Victory Old Ho. Overall, this was my fave of the bunch. Really hit the spot! Prosit!

Beautiful bonfire orange on the way to the glass, then marvelous maraschino cherry red with pumpkin highlights once there. A thick slice of golden caramel colored mousse rests atop the beer and becomes even creamier as it melts. Once the crown finally begins to relent, the glass becomes blanketed with BB-shot sheets of lace.

One whiff is all it takes to determine that this is my kind of American barleywine. In other words, one with primarily caramel malt and tons of tropical fruity hops. Warrior, Chinook, Simcoe and Nugget in this case. This should be outstanding beer.

Flying Mouflan is yet another high-ABV treat from the Trogner brothers. Too bad there are no dates on the label, because it would be helpful to know just how long this bottle has been aged. There's a gentle warming sensation with each mouthful, but there's no heat whatsoever.

Specific flavors include well-toasted brown bread covered with caramel-toffee sauce and chunks of candied cherries, oranges and grapefruits. There's still a good bit of tea leaf bitterness, so it can't be that long in the tooth. Malts and hops contribute pretty much equally: cooperating in terms of flavor and contrasting in terms of sweet-bitter. What could be better than that?

The mouthfeel is a sensory treat if you like higher-ABV beer. It's medium-full and lightly sticky, with dead solid perfect carbonation that is wonderful early (lightly stinging) and should be equally wonderful (more mellow) by the bottom of the bomber.

Those of you lucky enough to live in the Troegs distribution area know how good these guys are (if you don't, you should). Flying Mouflan Ale is yet one more example of the excellence emanating from Harrisburg. Bottom line: this is one of the best American barleywines of the past year. Thanks mgbickel.

Consumed 1/27/11 got this in a trade with my Secret Santa BIF!

Poured into a Duvel Parra tulip

A: A very turbid brown pours into my glass, and I wasn't expecting a beer so dark! Looking straight at it, I can't see through the beer, but held to the light yields a wonderful crimson/mahogany glow on the bottom and sides of the glass. A very aggressive pour yields a frothy light brown head with impressive staying power for a beer this big.

S: I presume this bottle to be relatively fresh, so this beer currently sits between an old IPA and an Old Ale. I get lots of sweet malt and caramel, with some dark candied fruits. There seems to be the slightest bit of hop coming through, and it blends well with the aforementioned fruit notes.

T: While still a bit cold, I get heavy caramel malt. It blankets my tongue with a warm, candied nut flavor, but not like any stout or porter I've ever had. The hop bitterness is present, and it actually makes for a spectacular balance in the flavor. Oranges dipped in molasses come to mind.

F: This is awesome in the beer. It's very chewy, but not as thick as some DIPAs I've had. (Looking at you, Hoptaneous Combustion). The carbonation is perfect. Enough of a tiny fizzle on the tongue, but the beer still coats my mouth with a graceful silkiness. I get a wonderful full feeling with every sip. (It's causing me to take pretty big sips.)

D: While I'm getting a bit of alcohol from this beer, I don't want to slow down drinking it. That being said, I'll still sip it over the course of the next half hour or so, but I have a feeling I'll enjoy the whole thing.

This was my first formal American Barleywine review, and only the third I've ever tasted, behind Stone Old Guardian and Nemesis '10. I do believe I enjoy this more than the two former, so I'll be giving this slightly increased points towards style for the time being.

Picked this up in the big bottle recently since I love just about everything from Troegs and and this seemed pretty intriguing to me. The description on the label said that it was like the Nugget Nectar dipped in sugar but this wasn't as hoppy as that would have led me to believe. This was a good beer and it wasn't until looked on here that I saw that this was classified as a Barleywine

Somewhat dark pour to this with a moderate head and nice lacing. The mouthfeel was good and the taste was that of sugar - regular, brown, caramel, and crystal malt. Just a hint of dark fruit in this but the sweetness is what stood out and lingered after each sip. It wasn't the taste that was overwhelming as much as it was the alcohol.

This packs a bit of a wallop but it's not as bad as some of the other Barleywines that I've had over the years. No rye or overwhelming heaviness to this and if there's a better hoppy Barleywine that's out there, I'm certainly not aware of it! This is not a beer that gets chugged down but rather enjoyed after a heart meal, since its more than able to meet the challenge.

Served on-tap in the Troegs tasting room. This is the 2010 version aged in the keg for 9 months now.

A - Pours deep murky brown with a strong khaki tan head, dissipating down to a light tan film, leaving sticky lacing down the glass.

S - Less hops than fresh, that is for sure. Plenty of sweet caramel malt blends well with aroma's of toffee, brown sugar, and some breadiness. Quite nice.

T - Plenty of sweet toasty malt up front giving way quickly to a mix of caramel and toffee sweetness. The usually bright hops have all but vanished at this point. Finish is a bit sweet at first with a bit of lingering dark roasted malt. I love aged mouflan and this one was well on its way to being great, a bit too early to pull this keg in my book but still awesome none the less.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet malty feel with plenty of lingering malt. Good balance of all flavors.

D - Pretty high all things considered. I love aged mouflan and this one really hit the spot. The higher ABV knocks this one down a few notches but it is still one of the best hoppy barleywines on the market today.

The body is a dark mahogany with a hint of red highlights and a respectable light tan head. Raisin aroma up front with hints of dark bitter chocolate and toffee in the background. Also finishes with a slight hop aroma. The flavor is very dark and malty with raisins and figs in the front for the flavor. It finishes with a sweet chocolate and toffee flavors rounding out with a grassy hop flavor. Nice full body on this with soft carbonation. Drinks well, a bit of a sipper, but a great beer.

22oz bomber into a perfect pint glass - pours a hazy earthy brown with a fluffy 1- 1/2 finger head - i could smell the brown sugar and maltiness on the pour - aromas of molasses and dried fruit -
sweet taste of brown sugar/dark molasses, caramel and some dried fruit, raisin (prunes?) and a little bit of a hop bite - surprisingly well balanced and smooth - a little alcohol warmth - medium bodied on the tongue with what feels like a good amount of carbonation - goes down real easy - maybe not the best example of the style but a real good beer nonetheless.

Bottled in June 2010.

A fluffy 1 finger head rises and fades at a medium pace with lots of big bubbles, over semi clear rosy maroon molasses brown color. A bit of lacing.

Nose is oozing malts and a bit of sweet booze from just the pour, with lots of reddish malts, darker crystal malts and touch of roast, hints of coffee, toffee, and chocolate, with a bit of a dark fruit. Some light earthy hops buried in there as well.

Taste starts a little sweet, and gets a little sweeter as it goes, bringing caramel, toffee, molasses, and brown sugar, light candi sugar like flavors too, some reddish malts, crystal malts, a hint of chocolate and roast, all the sweetness bringing a bit of warming booze that is balanced by the sweetness, hints of dried fruits, figs and plums, etc. With all that is some hops, plenty. SOme earthy and light herbal hops, bringing a bold bitterness, slight spicy hop taste, and a bit of hop fruits. As it finishes it doesn't really dry much, but just a touch, as the warming booze evaporates and tingles just a touch, with some bitterness, earthy and spicy hops, as well as the whole lot of sugars lingering, and just a bit of a minerality taste.

Mouth is a little heavier and a little syrupy, with decent carbonation and warming booze.

Drink is decent, but not great, with plenty of warming and slightly tingly booze, a sticky sweet finish, and a bit of a minerality quality coming out on the finish.

THis is pretty good fresh, the hops are starting to already add weird flavors to it after 8 months, but it mentions aging it, so I wonder if this will go the route of Big FOot and age really well to malty flavors, or the way of Behemouth and get really earthy, minerality, dirty, and not so great. I'm thinking the later as the hops already seem to cheat that way.

Poured into a tulip. Thanks Ben! Decent dark brown with a hint of amber on the edge of the glass. Just a bit of off white bubbles are around the rim of the glass.

The aroma indicates brown sugar and raisins. A tad of hops are evident.

The taste starts sweet with a hint of dark fruit. There is a gentle hop finish for balance.

Average mouthfeel but overall a very enjoable beer.

A- Pours a cloudy brown, mahogany raisin color... what little head it had, disappeared immediately. No lacing at all.

S- Dried figs and raisins... chocolate, earthy hops, citrus, cinnamon and fresh cracked nuts.

T- First sip... I was hit with a huge Grapefruit and pecan nuttiness... chocolate finish sliding down. Caramel candy, citrus peel, banana and bright hoppiness with a slight alcohol burn and bitterness.

M- Nice blend of carbonation and sticky bun...

D- I've never been a big Barley Wine drinker... but I really am enjoying this one. I'm gonna pick up at least one more to age. I'll definately drink this one again!

On tap at the Stag's Head in Manhattan. Served in a flute.

Appearance: Bartender leaves a thin white head that dissipates immediately. Looks almost still. While leaving no lacing, the beer pours a beautiful, semi-translucent maroon.

Smell: Caramel and vague dark fruit (close to plum or prune). On the whole the smell is not very potent, though it at least gains some complexity with warmth (some smokiness and chocolaty notes come out).

Taste: Strong hop bitterness up front. Mild citrus hop flavor takes a backseat to deep, characteristic American barleywine malt sweetness. Pleasantly surprising smoky finish. There's some caramel, raisin/plum/prune, and mild dark chocolate notes.

The complexity isn't enormous, but it's not a simplistic beer either. The flavor delivers strongly on the promise of the style, and throws in a few unique and interesting twists.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with decent carbonation (it looks kind of flat, but isn't). Not particularly creamy, juicy, or interesting. On the other hand, it doesn't get in the way of the very good flavor either.

Drinkability: Hits the spot if what you want is an American barleywine. I wouldn't have minded having another.

I don't think this beer fully keeps up with American standards like Great Divide's Old Ruffian, Stone's Old Guardian, Avery's Hog Heaven, Lagunitas's Olde Gnarlywine, or Sierra Nevada's (aged) Bigfoot, but it's only just behind them. If you're on an American barleywine kick, I'd definitely advise picking up a bottle of this.

The brew poured a dark, ruby red-brown. It poured with a thick, mocha 1 1/2 head. It stuck around for quite sometime and left some very nice lacing throughout the glass.

The aroma on this brew is very nice, and slightly simple. The front of this brew hits the nose with some nice heavy, caramel malts. Its then followed with a punch of nice citrusy hops and finishes with a slight booziness. There might also be a nice touch of raisins as well.

In the flavor at the front of this brew, the caramel malts are what I tasted first. This is followed up with a bit of spice and is soon followed with a hop profile that comes up in the middle of the brew. This brew has a nice toasted flavor in the finish was well, that fits well, because it also brings the warming alcohol flavor as well. It flavors blend very well and come together nicely.

This brew has quite a nice medium bodied mouthful. The hops flavor sticks around in the aftertaste and on the tongue. Its nice thick and smooth. Everything you come to expect in a nice barleywine.

This is a wondeful barleywine. It has a decently high abv, but the flavors and over all drinkablity of this brew mask it well. As I let this brew sit after being poured from tap it seemed to just get better as it warmed a bit. This is a great American Barleywine and another great brew that I have enjoyed by Troegs.

Poured into a standard pint glass, presented with nice creamy head about 1/4" thick but fluffy. Color is a deep amber, almost brown, on the thick side, but looks wonderful.

Smell is a big hit of caramely, malty sweetness with notes of raisians and bready malt. There are also nice hots of hops, slightly piney.

Taste is great, nice mix of malty, caramely sweetness with a hint of hop pine and citrus.

Mouthfeel is extremely well balanced for a barleywine, the flavors are just great, the caramely sweetness is not overpowering and hop flavors arent super bitter.

Very drinkable, just what you want in a barleywine with some great flavors that set it apart.

A- appears a very dark amber colour. Almost no head when poured, but a good amount of lacing that hung on for quite some time.

S- A very strong boozy smell, followed by caramel, hops, raisins.

T- You're hit with a huge amount of booze- a little much for my taste, but it disappeared pretty quickly in in favpur of the raisin and caramel.

M- Very, very thick and chewy. Also quite heavy. However, it doesn't leave the boozy taste on your tongue like you'd think it would- excellent!

D- This is certainly a sipping beer. Examine this one, note its characteristics closely- it's meant to be drunk this way.

Poured from a bomber courtesy of F2brewers, thanks Kevin!

Pours a dark brown/garnet, with two fingers of tan head.  Smells are hops, caramel, sweet candy and some chocolate malt.  Tastes are raisins, caramel, some chocolate and a hop finish.  Mouthfeel is thick and sticky.  Drinkability is good, I really enjoy this beer and could drink a couple in a setting no problem.

Purchased this bottle about a year ago from Boonton Liquor Outlet in Boonton, NJ. Into a pint glass, it poured a cloudy reddish copper with three fingers of tan head, that retained and laced very well. Smelled of very sweet apples, malt, raisin, prune, and very feint herbal hops. The taste was very similar to a barleywine...very plum, raisin, and sweet, with a sweet, alcoholic finish. Thick-bodied, and smooth; very little carbonation in the feel. This beer is good, but still a little rough; I'd like to get another bottle and age it some more to see if it smoothens out.

Happy birthday, Jared! This one's for you. Bottled 6th April 2010, consumed 23 December 2010. I first had this beer at the Troegs 10th Anniversary party back in 2007, and it's fun to revisit it.

In my snifter, this beer sits a moderately hazy muddy brown with a dense, light-brown head with excellent retention and nice lacing. The nose is sticky and resiny, with a blend of pine hops and caramel. The alcohol is noticeable too. There's brown sugar and a touch of leather peeps out from behind the sweetness and pine. I'm surprised by how hoppy this is.

The flavors on the palate are excellent. A blend of caramel, brown sugar and rather surprisingly, a little cream too. In this aspect, it reminds me of caramel cream candy. Fruity hoppiness is present in the mid-palate with a blend of orange peel and pine. While there's a little bit of apple, it's more red delicious than granny smith, so I doubt there's any acetaldehyde here. Brown sugar is present on the finish, along with a little leather and some hop bitterness. In fact, the finish is where the hops are most assertive, lingering on as a balancing bitterness. While the flavors are great, and I really do like that this isn't too sticky, a little bit more lingering sweetness of the finish would make this world class. The mouthfeel is sublime. Soft, smooth and creamy, the gentle carbonation works beautifully with the flavors, making this very drinkable.

Pours a dark ruby red-brown from a bomber into a Stella chalice. Medium-aggresive pour leaves a little over 2 fingers of off white, creamy head that sticks around for a while and leaves some nice lacing.

Nose is caramel malts, citrusy hops and a slight booziness.

The caramel malts are apparent up front, complemented by a hint of spice and a very nice hop profile in the middle and in the finish. There is also a hint of toastiness in the finish, as well as some warming alcohol. Cocoa nibs are also present, which gives the whole thing a nice chocolaty undercurrent throughout. The flavors balance very nicely.

Medium-bodied mouthfeel, if a bit slick. The hops stick around on the tongue but is not over-powering or unpleasant.

A very drinkable barleywine. The high ABV is masked well and this beers flavors really start to pop as it warms. I havne't had many Troegs, but the ones I have had were all pretty excellent. This brew is no exception, and at only $8 for a bomber, it's reasonably priced. I would pick this up again, no doubt.

Big thanks to jyoungsbcp for this one. 22oz bottle into a NB Globe.

A: Pours a nice red brown with an inch and a half of white tan head that sticks around nicely. Excellent clarity on the initial pour and some big gobs of lacing as it recedes.

S: Lots of flavors going on here, big time caramel malts and lots of caramelized sugars, also a pretty decent hop note as well. Has a nice whiskey note as well, not say from a barrel, but just a note reminiscent of whiskey. Slight boozey note but not out of place. Smells quite nice.

T: Tons of caramalized sugars that are the result of a long boil. Huge hop presence both up front and at the end, nice little bit of citrus and then a perfect bitterness to balance out the robust malt profile. Oh man, this is good. Slightly floral in the finish as well. Surprisingly not a hint of booze in the flavor. Excellent.

M: Medium to thick body with an excellent amount of carbonation. Finishes just a bit on the sticky side. Warm booze really heats you from the inside out. Spot on.

D: Easy to drink, almost to easy for the alcohol level. Dangerous. I really love the way that the huge malt presence melts into a nice bitterness to keep things in check, the balance between sweet and bitter is everything that I'd expect from a well made barleywine. This may be a little under the radar, but it is every bit as good as the other barleywines that I've had in the past. Highly recommended, excellent beer.

Thanks Josh!

22oz bottle into SA fancy pint.

Pours a caramel red with a nice tan head with nice lacing and a lovely cap of foam through the finish. A nice swirl creams it up nicely.

Definitely a sweet nose with a hint of booziness, like a piney brown sugar bomb.

Wow, this a balanced disaster of flavor, not in a bad way at all! Sweet, graham crackery caramel with a full lush hop finish.

Mouthfeel is a tad sticky but not to the point of being cloying. Full without being thick, drying with just the slightest alcohol burn in the finish.

Drinkability is good, a little dangerous as I think I could easily work through a few glasses of this with no problem.

Ap. Poured a likely too cold bomber into a Mad Elf chalice. Deep golden brown with faint ruby edges. Good small head, but it's gone.
Sm. Caramel is my first thought with a pleasant sweetness on top of some hoppy lemon.
Ta. Quite a blend of flavors...but what are they? Surprisingly, it's not sweet caramel. Faintly tart and spicy with a slight pucker on the finish. Lingering bitterness.
Mf. Really gives your mouth something to do. Full, a little carbonation to play with, lingers all over the place.
Dr. Don't know yet, but I'm thinking one bomber will be all she wrote for the night.

From notes dated 4.23.10

A - pours a dark reddish amber. Almost purple. Has some Orange highlights. Topped off with a thin bubbly layer of tan foam.

S - the aroma is reminiscent of nugget nectar. Sharp, biting, citrus, piney are very apparent but there is much more going on. Lots of sweetness and fruit esters. Burnt sugar. Candied cherries and figs.

T - the taste is essentially piney nugget hops dipped in candi sugar. Hops are very apparent, piney and citrusy but their bitterness balances the intense malt profile. Lots of caramel, some burnt sugar flavor, and cherries.

M - fuller medium bodied, light on the carb. Very smooth and creamy texture.

D - alcohol is very well hidden and everything is extremely well balanced. This is a dangerously drinkable ale. Just fantastic.

Thanks to Dim for the opportunity to try this, my first offering from Troegs.

A: A dark auburn color. About a finger of head with vigorous pour that hangs around for a few moments. Very light tan in color.

S: Candy sugar, caramel..piney hops.

T: Exactly like the nose. Hard to pickup the alcohol..becomes a little more evident as the beer warms. The flavors play each other well. Nicely balanced.

M: Smooth and thick. Leaves a coat behind. Pretty nice.

D: Well balanced hops and malts and well hidden alcohol make this very drinkable.

While, not like most barleywines I've tried, The Flying Mouflan is a nice beer indeed. Would certainly try again.
