22 ounce bottle into snifter; Spring 2011 bottling, 2 years old now. Pours hazy dark ruby red color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, raisin, apple, toast, light pine, brown sugar, orange rind, brown bread, orange zest, floral, grass, candi sugar, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt notes with a fair amount of hop presence. Taste of caramel, raisin, apple, toast, brown sugar, light orange rind, light pine, brown bread, floral, candi sugar, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, light pine, floral, candi sugar, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt flavors with a fair amount of hop presence; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a creamy, fairly slick, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent American Barleywine at 2 years of age. Very nice balance and complexity of malt flavors with moderate hops; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering. (1,372 characters)

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

A: Pours a very hazy reddish brown in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation and some mahogany + copper highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy dark beige head that quickly reduces to a wide medium thick ring of larger bubbles at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of caramel malts along with brown sugar and some hints of toffee. There are moderate aromas of pine/resin hops as well.

T: Overall this beer is pretty sweet and the sweetness increases as the beer warms up. Upfront there are strong flavors of malty sweetness with caramel, brown sugar, and just a touch of toffee. Light flavors of pine/resin hops that give it a light amount of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Sticky with some moderate amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: There is a very nice amount of complexity in this beer that makes this one best enjoyed by slowly sipping to appreciate it. The alcohol is pretty well hidden in this beer but it is definitely a strong beer and there is a fair amount of sweetness. (1,150 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Opened: 07/27/14
BD: 04/30/12

A: This poured a one finger off-white head, which slowly settled into a film that left some nice lacing. The body is a very dark amber - almost brown.

S: Dark, rich molasses. Sweet caramelized sugar. Dark fruit which reminds me of fruit cake when combined with the wholewheat bread notes. Just barely a whiff of chocolate. I am surprised at the woody notes as well. Slightly herbal.

T: There is more chocolate than the nose. The alcohol is noticeable, particularly on the swallow, but it works very well. The esters are there, but not as pronounced as the nose, but the molasses, toffee and leather are there. I'd venture to say that the taste, while definitely good, is not quite as good as the nose.

MF: Very nice. It is medium, almost full. Creamy, silky, luxurious.

O: Very good. I was surprised at how much I liked this one. It comes together very nicely. I would recommend. (916 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is quite hazy reddish brown in color. It poured with a half finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving a wide ring of large bubbles around the sides of the glass and some lacing covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel and sweet brown sugar are present in the nose along with hints of pine resin hops.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is malty and slightly sweet with flavors of caramel malts and brown sugar; these are contrasted by a light to moderate amount of hop bitterness and hints of pine rein The sweetness becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with bits of stickiness and warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer is rather drinkable for a barleywine because the alcohol is well masked from the taste. Nonetheless, it's a nice beer to sip and savor given its complex taste. (919 characters)

Bottled in 2011. Has been aging in a cool, dark room ever since. Poured into a DFH snifter glass. A deep dark earth color with a touch of tan head. When swirled, burnt orange hues dance along the sides of the glass. Nice lacing.

I almost laughed out loud after a few sips. The finish on this is so chocolatey and so rich -- it tastes like a really rich chocolate cake. The hops have aged with this beautifully; the combination of the lip-smacking hops and the chocolate note under age is a real treat. Carmelized malts and toffee linger about, with rich rum-soaked fruit notes coming out as the flavor lingers. Sticky, candi sugar note. Full-bodied and alcohol with the aging is so well hidden -- I'm going to be a Flying Mouflan in a few moments.

A fantastic dessert beer and great for a dinner-ending cheese plate. Buy one to have fresh and one to age. A steal in terms of the bargain domain. Thank you, Troegs. (915 characters)

Got this from Stormking47

Pours an effervescent ruby-tinged brown with a pinky of tan head. Alright head retention & lacing. Stays effervescent & slightly hazy towards the end

S: Faint pear notes & cherries; figs assert themselves as this warms

T: Dark fruit, leafy hops, dryness & boozey figs & a touch of pine up front. Piney woody hops mix with cherry pipe tobacco as this warms & some candi-sugar as well imparting dryness
& a little sweetness. Finishes with oaky dryness, with figs, pears, leafy hops, & more cherry. plus woody bitterness

MF: Chewyness with light carbonation, some oaky dryness & a little stickyness & fair balance

Drinks easy for the style & ABV, but not blown away by this one, but I did enjoy it as a nightcap (741 characters)

Described as "pushing nugget nectar off a cliff" I was expecting something a little hoppier. Still great in its own right but definitely not what I was expecting. I think the wheat slightly overpowers the hops but not in a bad way. First smell wasnt the best but considerably better after the pour. Very drinkable but defjnitely one to a sitting given the ABV. Interestingly enough according to the web a mouflan is an iranian sheep.??? (436 characters)

A pint 6 oz bottle no freshness date--I bought it back in November of 2012--drinking it in March 2013--poured into a Ommegang tulip glass

A: Fantastic dark amber color, nice tan head and great lacing on the glass.

S: Senses of cocoa, brown sugar and sweet malts.

T: Nice dose of hops on the front end, followed by the mellowness of the chocolate and malt. The longer I let this beer sit and warm up, the better it got.

M: This is definitely a full bodied offering. Very full mouth-feel, one you want to savor and not down too quickly.

D: Great for the winter, as the Spring and Summer approach, I can see drinking this full bodied of a beer, but another fantastic beer from Troegs! (688 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

22 oz bomber into footed pint glass. Bottle date of March 2012, drank 3/8/2013

Appearance: Dark ruby, tan head, settles into a gorgeous brown hue fading to deep chestnut. Lacing/retention is pretty good, perfectly acceptable given the style.

Smell: Soy sauce dominates immediately after the pour, but a few minutes later it fades in favor of sweeter flavors. Caramel, raisins, brown sugar. Not getting the hops, probably due to the bottling date. Disappointed in the lack of floral smell, also not getting the coffee nibs.

Taste: Mostly matches the aroma, but the sweetness is extremely overbearing. I understand the style, and I'm a fan of barleywines in general, but the taste is very one-dimensional. The alcohol is mostly subdued, but still present in the boozy finish.

Mouthfeel: Far too chewy for my tastes; very cloying, mouth-coating, and boozy. If this had been slightly less "loud", it would have gotten a much higher rating.

Overall: Good barleywine, not great. One year of cellar time may not be enough. (1,021 characters)

22 oz bomber into .5 cylinder glass .

A: Some one wrote cola! Yup that's right - chestnut/reddish body. The bubbly head is tan, and the retention and lacing are average. Expected more in appearance.

S: too much brown sugar. as someone wrote like a dessert liquor. ... floral, where are the hops? DO have to cellar it to have them arise, give me some bitter ness! not enough time for hop aroma, that doesnt make sense. in the direction of barley wine/ wee heavy which is cloying on a long winter night.

T: too much sweetness that start it off and stay. Ironically, i was quite excited by the taste at first, but half way through, I was overdone by its sweet monotone. bitterness doesnt arise. feel the alcohol and heat. which if you think about it, you'd never feel the alcohol in a wine that is several points higher... Others wrote nutty finish - but I get more caramel, candied sugar in the finish, and it leaves my mouth cloying a bit, wanting some salt popcorn or cheese.

M: Alcoholic, but not enough tingle. chewy. big bodied. but sugary. Too sweet for food.

D: Agree with others - close to American barleywine flavors. good, but not impressive. No point in opening this without cellar time... ? How long? (1,218 characters)

Pours dark ruby with a 2 finger beige head, with good retention and lacing. The aroma has caramel, toffee, raisins, and citrus. Very nice.

Tastes just like it smells with caramel, toffee, raisins, and citrus. I acquired this bottle last autumn and decided to hold onto it for a while, and do not regret it at all. There is a nice combination of sweet malt balanced with bitter hops which is drinking very nice right now.

Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Feels a bit sticky, and has a sweet aftertaste. There is no alcohol burn, which is one of the main reasons I am glad I held onto this for a few months. I would gladly buy this again if I get another opportunity. (679 characters)

Drank from pilsner glass at 50F.

Color is dark swamp water mahogany. Head is brown and sticky.

Nose is toasty, brown sugar, molasses, malt, and dark sesame seeds.

Taste like it smells. Flavor has distinctive Troegs gusto and is clearly unashamed to have a heavy grain bill. Carries the alcohol with pride. No hiding behinds adjunct sugars. Warming and welcoming without a boozy back of the rogue sting.

Body is a bit heavy, so you won't likely be swirling more than 24-48 oz down at a sitting. (501 characters)

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, YaKnowBrady!

A dark barleywine, but not black by any means. A charred amber and dark brown with a moderately-sized dark brown, creamy head. This leaves messy chunks of lace down the glass. Pretty and appropriate. Very sticky.

An appropriately sweet aroma of toffee and caramel, some candy bar (chocolate and caramel, combined), some burnt notes (though complementary), and some booze as the beer comes to room temperature. It's not distracting, however, and it comes together quite nicely. Complete.

The flavor is exceptional, and better than the aroma. It's a complete, incredibly drinkable, American barleywine. Moderate bitterness, mild chocolate, lots of burnt sugars (toffees, caramels), and a bit of alcohol come together very nicely. An incredible beer to sip on during a cold evening...though I can hardly sip it, I'm gulping it! Delicious!

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation carbonation.

Incredibly drinkable and delicious. I came in without expectations, and I left wanting more Flying Mouflan! (1,056 characters)

Bottle from 2011, poured into a Weyberbacher glass. I've had the Mouflan several times before, but never aged.
Poured with two thick fingers of frothy tan head, and a nice clear mahogany body. Smells like sticky toffee pudding and raisins... yum! Great taste as well, the age really mellowed the booziness and brought out malty characteristics. Still some hoppy bitterness lingering as well, but much more subdued than when fresh. Lots of sweetness and caramel. Light to medium body, smooth and still lots of bubbly carbonation. Easy finish.
This is definitely one of my favorite barleywines, and the age mellowed it a little, which I enjoyed. Excellent! (654 characters)

Bottle sent to me from Treebs a while back. Thanks for hitting this big want.

A: Cloudy red cola color with a solid head that recedes quickly.

S: Dark fruit, specifically raisins, bold caramel malt, and some booze. Sweet smelling barleywine with minimal citrus from the remaining hops.

T: Touch of hops on the front end, then the strong caramel backbone comes through. Raisins, dried fruit, toffee, and sweetness comes through. Very slight hop presence as it finishes. Flavors seem somewhat muted.

M: Medium-heavy, soft carbonation, and slight booze.

O: A good representation of the style, although the time that the bottle sat made it less American because of the diminished hops. (691 characters)

bomber into tulip. bottled on 05.01.12. batch # 120320

A: murky looking chestnut/reddish body. head is a shade darker than bright white. very bubbly. retention is good, while the lacing is epic. thick and exactly what it should be.

S: raisins. tons of brown sugar. a little bit of a dessert liquor. Italian Disaronno comes to mind. slightly floral, the hop presence struggles to make its presence known. perhaps it has had enough time to mellow some of that hop aroma?

T: plenty of sweetness starts things off. bitterness undertones throughout, but nothing significant. certainly some heat towards the finish. otherwise the finish is super nutty and that flavor lings long after the sip is gone. candied sugar comes out in the finish as well.

M: very chewy brew. big bodied.

D: pretty close to your standard American barleywine flavors/descriptors. good, but similar to most beers in this style guideline, nothing too impressive. this had some time on it and still had some heat, interested to know how long until that flavor fully sizzles out. (1,052 characters)

Poured a mahogany color with a one finger head- very good looking beer in a snifter.

The aroma was apparent before I put my nose to the glass: toffee, butterscotch, and candy.

The mouth feel was slightly carbonated.

The finish was a wonderful blend of butterscotch, candy and toffee with slight alcohol.
A balanced taste.

This is a winner. Will try again. (359 characters)

Bomber to HFS sniffer

A: Dark nut brown and completely opaque with a thin tan head that goes away

S: Malt city thare is a dominant smell of sweet malts and that is about all I can smell

T: This is a malt bomb for sure you can taste the sweetness of the malt sugars but there is some hop bitterness to it I would not call it balanced by any means, but there is a hop presence. There is also a crisp after taste that allows this to be pretty drinkable especially for a barleywine

M: very oily and syrupy you can almost feel the malt sugars coating your mouth. It goes down rather smooth for the amount of alcohol as it is not really any late noticeable burn

O: I don't usually drink barley wines as they aren't really my style but I enjoyed this one and it was really drinkable for the amount of malt in the taste which would normally turn me off. It could definitely be toned down and have the deeper flavors come out with some age, but an enjoyable experience none the less worth a try if you like barleywines (1,017 characters)

Pours a dark amber color with a decent sized light tan head, sticks around for awhile and also to the glass.

Smell is quite hoppy even with the large caramel malt backbone, very earthy in its aroma, hint of grapefruit and citrus.

Taste is exactly as thought, a hoppy malt bomb, a decent citrus hop presence hits first but quickly gets pushed aside as the sweet deep caramel malt takes over, the caramel/toffee is huge, still finishes slightly dry and the sweetness of the malt isn't cloying or overly sticky, soft carbonation lends a great creaminess and body to this beer. (575 characters)

One of the first "big beers" I ever tried years ago, I finally re-visited this one for the first time in a while.

Pours dark ruby red with a creamy tan head. Decent retention and clumps of lacing on the glass.

A little bit of citrus hop character in the nose and an onslaught of caramel/toffee flavors along with dark fruits and a bit of vanilla. Almost liquer like with the sweetness and candied hop aroma.

Taste is not quite up to par with the nose as the sweetness dominates a bit too much. Citrus hops especially grapefruit are present up front along with a syrupy caramel presence. I get a lot of brown sugar, vanilla and raisin/fig character as well as this definitely leans more toward English barleywine than American. Hops are present, but malts shine. A little booze is evident on the back end. Again almost like a brandy with the fruity sweetness.

Thick and syrupy mouthfeel. Fruity sweet booze finish, but not over alcoholic. A bit on the sweet side overall, but there is some bitterness.

A tasty beer although one I'd recommend splitting as it's too overly sweet to take down a whole bottle myself. Even splitting it, 11 oz was more than enough. I've had this at various stages of its life and feel it's definitely best fresh as the sweetness/bitterness are the best ratio then. (1,296 characters)

Bought this bomber freshly bottled from the Tröegs Brewery in August 2011, and let it age for over a year. Pours a blood red color that seems clear, but is so dark no night comes through; has a creamy 2 finger tan that faded slowly leaving a creamy layer on top and decent spotty lacing.

I got a whiff of citrus hops up front, followed by caramel, toffee, sweet malt, grapefruit, syrup, raisin, apple, plum and other dark fruit, sweet candy, light herbs, vanilla and booze like rum or a sweet liquor; the hops were stronger than expected after a year, and the nose was sweet and pleasant overall. It almost seems like red wine, with oaky notes from the fruity sweetness.

Tastes very sweet, and almost too sweet, but it did not cross the line or “jump the shark”. Flavors include citrus hops, grapefruit, apple, caramel, toffee, syrup, raisin, sweet malt, plum, cherry and other dark fruit, sweet candy, light herbs, vanilla, biscuit, brown sugar, flowers, piney hops and booze like rum or light alcohol. It’s quite complex, with the fruity sweetness, hops and alcohol all swirling around together. The malt and bready notes balance out the hops, and the fruity sweetness seems like the hops and yeast transformed this into a more wine like experience. There is a nice mild bitterness, and this begs to be sipped slowly like a cognac.

Mouthfeel is thick and smooth at the same time, with a buttery feel on the tongue, a heavy chewy body, mild carbonation, and fruity sweet finish that was slightly bitter. It’s sweet overall, but also complex and rather easy to drink considering the ABV that is always present and the hop bitterness.

I would definitely have this again and recommend trying it as it was highly drinkable to me for the style, and tasty in general. I’m glad I let this age as it was a lot mellower than I expected, and a very fine slow sipper indeed. I'd like to get a few more bottles to try it fresh and age one for a longer period of time. The alcohol kicks in as I took the last few sips, so look out as this one creeps up on you. (2,067 characters)

Bottle obtained as an extra in a trade in early 2010. This bottle is likely almost 3 years old, and has been cellared at 50 degrees F. Poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter.

Pours a cloudy russet hue. This bottle has been large undisturbed for the past two years but doesn't look like it- there is nothing clear about it. Pours with a thin head that quickly dissipates.

The nose is appealing, with hints of ripe apples, apple brandy, sweet figs, treacle, burnt toffee, and caramelized malt. Smells very much like a classic aged English barleywine. Interestingly, the hops used to push with IBUs over 100 when this was fresh are not English at all. Time does interesting (and in this case wonderful) things to beer.

The flavor is quite outstanding. The dark dried fruit elements come out in force, with juicy raisin and fig cookie-filling making a dent. Dark syrupy bread and brandy-macerated grapes come to mind. The original hops in their fresh form are 90% gone, but still deliver some noticeable bitterness. Chocolate is also in there somewhere, but it isn't prominent, and manifests itself like "chocolate chips in bread" as opposed to an actual pure chocolate flavor.

The mouthfeel is thick, rich, sweet, and hasn't lost a bit of staying power over the years. This one could go years longer and still have body left.

Conclusion: I intended to wait till sometime next year to open this bottle (received in a trade in early 2010). This is the first time I have tried this beer, and seeing as it never makes it out to CO, it may be the last. Well worth the wait, and I am glad I didn't drink it fresh. (1,609 characters)

Aged 2 years, 22 oz bomber
Poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a ruddy amber, brown color with a 1/2 inch of khaki colored head. Head recedes to a film that retains the length of the beer. Minor wisps of lacing are left on the glass.

S: Nose is tons of toffee, caramel notes, raisin, date, and a hint of citrus. After 2 years, there is still a decent amount of alcohol detectable in the nose.

T: Taste is loaded with toffee and caramel at the forefront, lending its way to a raisin, date, and brown sugar flavoring. Hefty malt body continues in to the finish with a hint of citrus, pine, and a touch of alcohol.

M: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, creamy, slick body that dries up right before ending with a sticky finish.

O: Goes down easy, pretty tasty, somewhat filling, big kick, nice representation of style. (839 characters)

An 1809 Highball glass contains this clear, dark copper beer with half an inch of loose, beige head that lasts a few minutes. Slight spotty lace and a clean film are left on the glass.

This one has nut aromas with a fruity, sweet spice underneath. One will find dates, figs, some sherry and light grapefruit as it warms.

Caramel with some roasted notes and lots of raisin flavors. Black tea and wheat bread are nice additions. Bitterness is fair. Warmth allows this one to mellow.

Full bodied with alcohol, it is tame for its size. Carbonation is modest and soft and residual sugars are left behind.

Easy drinking with food, but also good with conversation. (661 characters)

S- brown sugar, toffee, citrus and pine.

T- sweet toffee, toasted malts maybe some rye, citrus and bitter pine with slight spicy finish.

M- medium body and carbonation. This beer drinks amazingly! Abv is hidden well and has nice creamy, slightly chewy feel.

O- very good American Barleywine. This isn't a Wow beer but a very good, solid one. (493 characters)
