Inspiré de ce rocher en perdition au large des Îles, Corps Mort est un vin d’orge salin et robuste. Brassé à partir de grains fumés, ayant frayé avec le hareng du «Fumoir d’Antan», il offre une alliance de saveurs riches et sauvages ayant un fort potentiel de vieillissement.
2010 vintage 11.0% abv **Peut contenir des traces de hareng boucané!

It pours murky copper with amber highlights; the head is beige and mousse like. The aroma of: Sherry, toffee, peat smoke, and raisins. The taste is medium sweet that finishes mildly astringent and medium bitter; the aroma notes carry through with some charcoal and iodine. The palate is heavy bodied with basically no carbonation; the finish is long. Overall, it’s the nanny’s bitchtits!

From Youri. Pours dark Amber with off white head. Smell is awesomely smokey with light fruit, toffee and hops. Flavor is good - smoke here as well, lightly astringent, fruity malty and bitter in the finish. A little rough around the edges, but good. I’d give the nose an 8.5 and the flavor a 6.5 if I could.

A good friend described this as a rauchbier masquerading as a barleywine. I do not disagree. It is deliciously smokey, salty and complex. It made me thirstier, but also quenched my thirst at the same time. Bravo!

Draught at EtOH. Rich maltiness with a smokey edge, maple, orange marmalade, pepper, round mouthfeel, gentle warming finish. Dangerously tasty one, a very enjoyable if not outstanding barley wine.

Robe orangée foncé tirant sur le brunâtre très trouble avec un mince filet de mousse blanc crème. Arômes de sucre d’orge, malt légèrement fumé, orange, eau de mer, caramel dur. Haut taux d’alcool imperceptible. Manque d’intensité et de complexité pour un vin d’orge. En bouche, saveurs d’orange et abricot, léger citron, le tout enveloppé dans un malt caramelisé et de sucre d’orge. Léger goût fumé qui s’intègre très bien. Finale plus amère et saline, zeste d’orange. Un peu épicé par la présence d’alcool. Vin d’orge original sans être trop sucré. Bel équilibre des saveurs.

Pours a hazy golden copper color with a medium long lasting white head. Lots of carbonation on the appearance. Strong smoky fish nose but not unpleasant. You also get some red wine, maple and some roasted malts. Oily mouthfeel, alcool well hidden but you fet a lingering alcool finish. You also get some sourness in the middle of the taste. Quite balanced actually.

Ambrée, voilée, avec une très mince mousse blanche. Nez de zeste d’orange, de fumé et de malt caramélisé. Goût de fumé, de caramel, de houblon herbacé et d’épices. L’amertume est plutôt présente et la finale laisse sur une note sèche. Je me souviens d’en avoir bu une, il y a 4-5 ans, et les flaveurs de fumé étaient plus fortes, on pouvait même déceler des notes de hareng.

Stoned99 (1321) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle from local IGA. Aroma: Smoked malt, caramel, barley, orange zest. App: hazy copper with small white head. Shy lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, medium sweetness, thick feel, light bitter, warming by alcohol and a tad salty finish. Overall: a quite different barley wine but quite interesting. Strong not too much.

Pretty pricey for a regular bottle but with more than twice the abv (11%)of a regular one too! Poured a very hazy dark amber colour, with not much head and ok lacing. Almost looks like mango juice. Very strong aromas, barley malts, caramel, dry fruits. Flavour is very strong, a bit of alcohol is apparent, dark roasted malts, bitterness with the spices, sugary sweetness. Really has a smokey mouthfeel, a faint burnt feeling. This is definitely a one shot deal. Pretty good, just a bit too expensive.
