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!

(version à 11%) - Bière orangée et trouble avec un mince halo de mousse en guise de diadème. Le nez respire les fruits mûrs et sucrés, le caramel... et l’opulence. En bouche, une entente à l’amiable est signée entre l’amertume sèche et le sucré décadent; chaque parti a son mot à dire. La dégustation se déroule à parts égales dans le meilleur des deux mondes. Les notes fumées, salée et «poissoneuses» notées auparavant, lors de la dégustation d’un autre brassin, me semblent absentes dans cette version qui doit bien avoir une ou deux années d’âge (les encoches de la date d’embouteillage n’ont pas été taillées sur l’étiquette).

Bottle, ’10 vintage. Clear amber pour with a white head. Caramel malts and barrel aromas. Caramel malts, mild raisins and plums. Big boozy heat. Decent mouthfeel. A bit thin in the body.

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Reddish brown out of the bottle with a small tan coloured head. Aroma is sweet malt, candied sugar, and a little alcohol. Flavour is slightly sweet, not too overpowering

MacBoost (1605) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pretty light colored for a barleywine. Light, cloudy amber with no head. Aromas of sweet malt, dark fruit. Pretty sweet, some peat, some fish. They aren’t kidding when they say it may contain traces of smoked herring. It does. Smokey, malty, sweet. Not really my thing. Meh.

mathieuc (2484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2013
12oz, bottled in July of 2011. Clear golden liquid topped by a feable white head. Big smoky nose with some malty notes underneath. Slight oxidized notes detected, taste is drier than expected too. Mouthfeel is liquorous but it has less body than I remember, signs of ageing? Flavors remind of bacon, smoky and salty. Overall a good beer, something that can age well but that is ultimately forgotten.

BeerandBlues2 (11059) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is pear and apple esters, cookie and light caramel malt, vanilla and oak with spicy alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt dominant, light spicy hops, dark fruity esters, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

À l’oeil : De robe cuivre foncé, elle se cache dans une forte opacité. Une mousse tenace nappe longuement le verre. Une légère effervescence est présente. Au nez : Nez plutôt timide qui laisse paraître des effluves de caramel et de malt. Au goût : Fort goût de malt caramélisé, d’où immerge une bonne amertume. Finale acide. Lorsque tiède, on goûte bien la note fumée de ce vin d’orge. Une bien bonne bière !

mcberko (10569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
341mL bottle, pours an opaque dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is of dried dark fruits (dates, figs, apricots), toffee, and grapes. Flavour of grapes, other dark dried fruits, some toffee, a bit of oxidation, and some rubber. Not sure if this tastes old or if it’s just crafted this way. Medium complexity that drinks easily enough for a barley wine and doesn’t cloy. Standard, nothing special.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a resilient white head. Smell is cmoke and salty meat. Taste is sweet, barley candy, cake, salt and meat. Lots of smoke in the finish, along with a light bit of herbal, earthy bitterness. Warmth, some bitterness, and almost overwhelming smoke linger on. No alcohol taste. Light bodied, very strong, tasty ale. A very unique experience!
