COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

blankboy (5803) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a clear copper-gold with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of grain (a grainy Barley Wine?), that Quebec yeast, some smoke, fruit and some sugary sweetness. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, light smoke, some spice and dark fruit. Average bodied. Disappointing but ultimately and O.K. beer.

Boutip (4509) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle: Poured a medium amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with very thin notes of salt. Taste is not as complex as I had hoped with some caramel malt and not much help. The smoke notes that was supposed to be present is very hard to distinguish and the salty notes are also very hard to find. Body is about average with good carbonation with no alcohol appearance. Not bad but not worth the price tag.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle... Beautiful, clear amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The nose is an intoxicating blend of smoked bacon and sweet, buttery toffee. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and biting carbonation. Sweet, smoky flavor with a brown sugar finish. What a treat… an English-style smoked barleywine. Thanks to MartinT for providing the bottle!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2010
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de malt fumé (bacon) aux notes rôties, moyen de caramel sucré, léger de légumes bouillis, d’alcool doux, et de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) avec des notes boisées (bois brûlé) et de chocolat noir. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse. Léger goût fruité (notes de prunes rouges, traces de raisins et d’abricots) accompagné d’un moyen goût de malt fumé (fumée de bois et notes de saucisses fumées) et de traces de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt légèrement rôtis, un léger goût de caramel sucré et des notes de chocolat noir. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant jusqu’en finale, où l’on retrouve un goût herbeux plus prononcé (herbes mouillées) avec des petites notes salées. Post-goût moyen-long moyen-léger amer d’alcool doux, léger de rôti avec un moyen goût fumé et des notes de chocolat et de fruits.

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Moderate cream-coloured head on dark amber. Spicy moderate syrup aroma .Body is not at all syrupy. Kind of dry, nice sipper. Friendly spice and a bit of heather.

Eructoblaster (2856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle - 341ml. Pours a slightly hazy amber body with a fair off-white foamy/creamy head. Very enjoyable malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, fruity, and oaky hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Texture is soft and taste is well balanced. It carries woody, fruity, and subtle smokey notes. Good, warming bittersweet finish. Another very good one from "les Îles".

JulienHuxley (2549) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle. Smokey, salty aromas some celery salt too. Pretty sweet taste a little smoke and very well hidden alcohol. Pretty good.

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2009
Medium, fine yellowish head over clear foxy-amber beer. Alcohol & very lightly phenolic-smoked; bit of caramel underneath. Phenolic, smoked, leathery taste, gradually building up. Important amount of restsugars, caramel. Retronasal flavours of sweetish young vegetables. No herring. Much more carbonated MF than the visual suggests; slick, not overly full-bodied. Nicely smoked; less aggressive than the Bamberg ones, but more carbolic/phenolic. Grand merci à Sylvain pour cette bière rare!

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle ( 341ml ). Shared with blankboy and garthicus, via trade with JulienHuxley. Clear bright pale amber-gold, smallish frothy/creamy beige head. Smell - damn, that Quebec yeast - dry, sharp, sour - masks the booziness a bit; sweet and floral in behind that - ehhh. Taste - again, boozy, somewhat sour, spicy and harsh .... watery, slick, decently carbonated, but it leaves a weird pungent, sweaty aftertaste - frankly only the old version of the corne de brume is worth the bother from these guys.
