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!

Hazy orange-amber color, small creamy head. Mild aroma, light smoke character, malt, also light sourness. It has a slim body, malt flavor, quite high alcohol perception, high salty and marine presence, and some astringent character in the end.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Winter warmer 2012. Bière couleur de miel, limpide et coiffée d’un beau col couleur crème traçant une large dentelle au verre. Des arômes de caramel, de fleurs et d’alcool. Amertume soutenue et bien agencée aux arômes. Bière veloutée, mais de corps très solide. Douce effervescence, elle se termine sur une interminable fin amère et aromatique.

Liquide ambré légèrement voilé ayant une tête onctueuse se dissipant lentement. Des arômes fruités, sucrés, boisée et fumés en émanent, qui réussissent à combiner les parfums bucoliques du printemps, de l’été et de l’automne. Goût riche où se mélangent des saveurs sucrées et d’herbes salines. L’alcool réussi à se faire discret. (Embouteillée en nov. 2010) (168-170212)

Orange brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma of wort, sweet malts, orange peels, light smoky iodine aroma, sea aroma’s are very prominent, bit reminding of Talisker and Oban. Light pine resin. Flavour sweet malty, light madeira, salt, ash, light bitter hops, very complex. Rather sweet finish, lingering sea tones. Good balance, interesting salty tones, really nice!
