Notes: This strong alluring ale is two beers in one. Cracking open a fresh bottle unleashes hops and heat with more than 100 IBUs emanating from three hop varieties and sweet burn of 9.3% ABV. Cellaring the Flying Mouflan in a cool dark place at 50 degrees for a minimum of four months will mellow out the hops and wash away the heat. If you can resist temptation you will be rewarded with two memorable beers in a single bottle.

First barleywine, not sure what to expect. It lands somewhere between an IPa and a sour. Great amber color, heavy barley and gras smell, very fresh. Somewhat carbonated

The appearance was a nice golden amber to brown tobacco color with a decent half finger foamy white head that once it starts to die, there is a decent amount of adequate stringy lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass. The smell was definitely of the English persuasion of sorts of a Barleywine as the typical "tobacco" smell and maltiness came out here. The taste was caramel malts with a nice coating of the tobacco coming through as well. On the palate, it sat about a medium to heavy with a decent boozy edge to it. The alcohol is well noted and I know that was not from the tryptophan from the turkey we had that night. Overall, pretty nice English barleywine worthy of coming back to.

This beer pours a deep rust color with garnet highlights. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves some decent lacing.

There are aromas of caramel, dates and fig.

The taste is much the same although it is not as sweet as the aroma lead me to believe. I taste caramel, toast, dates, fig and brown sugar. With all the malt flavor it never gets too sweet. There are enough residual hops to balance the flavor.

Thick and syrupy mouthfeel

This has held of very well for almost five years. It is an enjoyable beer that is keeping me warm on a mild winter night.

This is one of the best barleywine so have tried, barrel aged or not. Pours a deep, deep ruby that almost looks brown or black. The smell and taste are a very rich combination caramel, toasty bread, and some fruitiness. A little pine and hop aroma and bitterness. One of the finest, most balanced, and well rounded barleywines that I have tasted.

Poured into a Kuhnhenn XV tasting glass at a barleywine tasting. Hoppier than I would have initially anticipated (certainly hoppier than Lower de Boom, which we directly compared it to prior), but the palate develops well into grape, blackberry, and boysenberry. Avoids going overboard with cherry, dates, raisins, or figs. A solid American barleywine, though hard for me to compare generally, only because I tend to favor the English side of the style.

This brew is 6 years old. Time for its reveal. Poured at 52 into a tulip glass.

This is one dark monster, like over used motor oil. The color is dark brown like a stain on wood. Carbonation bubble dance to and fro from the murkiness. The medium tan colored head is a one finger thick and rocky; furthermore, the head tatted some beautiful lacing around the glass. The head does not have the best retention. This is an awesome showing.

A huge malt bomb ripe with caramel and toast aided with biscuit and yeast notes. Pine, resin, and grapefruit round off the hops. The aromas are not as intense as fresh barley wine, it is just refined.

A barleywine this refined with age is just heaven. The malt is rich with caramel, and toast A warm alcoholic touch, bready, yeasty, biscuit with subtle pine resin floral, grapefruit and perfume.

The mouth feel is warming and coating.

This is the reason why god made barleywines. I have tasted some awful to harsh barleywines, the age on this is has made this awesome.

Thin and bubbly tan froth atop a dark brown brew. Fresh-baked brown bread, cherry, plum and pine to the nose. The taste brings to mind melted caramel dripping off a spoon and mixed with brown bread, brown sugar, mincemeat and currants with a finely tuned resinous hop ending for good measure. Medium side of heavy and smooth all the way down with a creamy core and drier than expected finish.

Top tier.
