Flying Mouflan unlocks bold notes of hops dipped in candi sugar and rolled in cocoa nibs. We mature our barleywine ale in oak barrels for over 6 months to soak in tangy raisin and infuse vanilla and chocolate decadence.

In review is a 2016 Vintage.

A - Deep burgundy pour with alot of floaties suspended in the beer. Toffee colored lacing, very little carbonation, and lots of legs on the sides of the glass.

S - Mellow toasted toffee malt and brown sugar hit the nose first along with a little bit of raisin and some oak woodiness.

T - Overall very mellow but very complex. There's a nice blend of toasted toffee malt, oak woodiness, brown sugar, raisin, and some dark fruit while ending balanced with a slight amount of bitterness. There's a definite alcohol presence but it doesn't detract from the beer overall.

M - Thick and silky soft on the palate with no carbonation with a slight bit of thinness around the edges.

O - I bought a few bottles in 2016 and this is the last one. I prefer this beer younger.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. the beer was picked up on a trip to Hershey a few years ago. Beer pours a clear amber color with minimal beige colored creamy head of about 1 cm and fades to a sturdy edge layer and a wispy island on the surface.
The aroma is robust and boozy with brown sugar, caramel, raisin and red grapes. Some dry wooden notes come through and definitely a good dose of black peppery alcohol. There is also some faint black tea hop character on the nose. Quite complex scents on this brew.
The first sip reveals a beer with a thinner body than expected but with slightly syrupy texture and very mild and spacious carbonation. Even with the lighter body this is still a bit of a sipping beer.
Flavor is similar to what I expect from the nose. I get toffee and brown sugar mixing with a bit of red grape and raisin notes. A bit of general sweetness rolls to some light chocolate and again some boozy black pepper notes. The hops are not really to present with just a little bit of herbal tea and then some warming booze hits on the finish.
I enjoy this barleywine and fine it to be a longer term investment to complete the bottle than expected, but only because Im savoring it. Nice brew!

A - Pours a dark reddish brown with a small head that shrinks to a constant ring.
S - Aroma is boozy and woody barrel.
T - Flavor is big on raisin with toffee and woody barrel not far behind. As the beer warms, some dark chocolate begins to come out.
M - Carbonation is below average, mouth feel average.
O - I really enjoyed this Barleywine. Wish I had more so I could put one in the cellar for 3-5 years.

Undated bottle from the brewery into pint glass. Pours a deep, cloudy reddish amber color with a light tan head. Initial impression is dark chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, and a hint of oak. Hops are definitely secondary to the malts. No dark fruits that I noticed - perhaps overwhelmed by the malts? Rich, creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is on the light side, which is just about perfect for this beer. Finish is smooth and sweet. Alcohol is wickedly well hidden.

I'm rating this on my enjoyment, not necessarily adherence to style. I think it's damn good.
