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

Bottle: Poured a deep burgundy color ale with a rather larger foamy head with good retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of piney hops and caramelized malt is really nice. Taste is also a nice mix between some quite strong piney hops with light resin notes and some caramelized malt with light notes of toffee and well balanced residual sugar level. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Pretty solid interpretation of American hops heavy barleywine that I wouldn’t mind revisiting again in the future.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours an opaque ruby brown with a 2 finger dense off white head. Head sticks around for a bit and leaves some lacing as it disappears.

S: Dark fruits like raisin and fig, roasted malt. A little bit of sweetness and hints of oak.

T: Strong taste reminiscent of a barley wine, can tell some hops have faded away leaving a dark sweet fruity malt taste. A little bit more alcohol present than I would have liked.

M: Thick and fairly heavy mouthfeel with low/moderate carbonation. Very warming.

Overall I think this is at an odd aging point, the hops have faded but the sweetness is still too overpowering. Worth a try but get it fresh or age it more.

Flying Mouflan is a deliciously hoppy barley wine that straddles the border between malty DIPA and hoppy barleywine.

A: Brown colour and a 3 mm head that lasts pretty well. 4.5

S: Malty with some nice hop aroma, too. I guess it'll smell very different when it's been aged. 4.5

T: Citrus hops over a mild malty base. Kinda like an extra malty IPA. Really, really delicious. 4.5

M: Foamy. Really good. 4.5

O: Maybe a little much to drink lots of. 4

Serving type: on-tap

I picked up a bomber today from Wegman's in Mechanicsburg, PA.

Appearance: Pours a deep brown into the glass with a strong ruby hue when held to the light. The head is thick, tan and long lasting with plenty of lacing.

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, sweet malt, some citrus from the hops.

Taste: Malty, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, some hops aftertaste and an definite alcohol warming at the end. Sweet without being cloying. Balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and comfortable to drink.

Overall: I am going to pick up a couple more bottles and let them age. This is a nice barleywine.

This is an older bottle, maybe 1.5 years old that has been sitting in my cellar. A classic from Troegs of a very very solid american barleywine.

The beer pours from the bottle with a crimson look to it but settles in a deep brown color/some red to it, with some nice lacing and a good tan head to it, looks very sudsy and delicious.

the smell is nice, but it is fainter than I usually like, even with a swirl from my snifter. It has the classic american barleywine malt bill that is dripping with dark prunes and brown sugar, caramel, and some candied fruit notes.

The taste has a ton of flavor with the candied fruits, prunes, musty cellar, toffee, caramel, and brown sugar really coming through beautifully. It's semi sweet but not cloyingly so, with a savory feel to it as well.

The feel is nice, sudsy and medium bodied, no heat. A little thinner than most barleywines but still has some body to it. carbonation is good.

A great beer, totally solid.
