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!

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!

Aroma is smoky, sweet but not overpowering. Taste is similar with a little bit of saltyness as well. A little too sweet for my taste but the smoke and salt play really well with some bitterness and a touch of booze on the finish. Really nice beer and very unique.

I split a bottle of this with drabmuh recently. Review from notes. An American barleywine from Quebec that may contain traces of herring. Intriguing... This beer appears a clear orange color with a good-sized that leaves plenty of lacing in its wake. The aroma is very smoky. I guess I wasn’t expecting that. There is also a salty scent, reminiscent of an ocean. It’s almost as if this is a rauch barleywine. The beer is tasty indeed, but very sweet, and after a few ounces, I find it to be somewhat of a chore to finish. There is a certain level of complexity, however, that makes this beer alluring. An interesting brew for sure, and worth a try.

[bottle at Danish Invasion tasting with cgarviuk and fonefan--thanks, fellas!] Sweet vanilla aroma with a little grain, tropical fruit, and apricots. Hazy dark gold with no head. Sweet and bitter flavour that is in good balance. Lemony with some vanilla and smooth. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

Clear copper in colour with a long lasting off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, caramel, citrus, candy, bread. Flavour is a bit warm, sweet, lots of caramel, citrus. Warm mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hot, quite sweet.

Not bad, a thin barley wine. Lots of alcohol.

Flavor of caramel, herbal/floral, salt and smoked malt. Slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is sirupy. Medium to long duration of aftertaste. Warming alcohol but at 11% abv, alcohol is well hidden. Superb balance and nice complexity. Amazingly drinkable for an 11% abv beer. Pleasant surprise, a superb beer!
