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!

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)

Martinus (2798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2012
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!
(From 341mL bottle @ RBBWG 2011, Antwerpen. Thanks for sharing, Antoine & Nicolas!)

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
33 cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of Antoine. Holy smoke, another Québec gem, this beer rocks. Couleur ambrée avec un col inexistant, ce qui n’enlève en rien aux qualités du produit. Arôme a en lui un profile maritime, bizarre à expliquer pour une bière, on sent l’appel du large, le tout sur un malt caramel et des pointes fruitées et une pincée de malt fumé. En bouche, très agréable et unique, on ressent donc ce profile de malt fumé, mais avec un ajout d’air de mer salin qui est très appréciable car quoique présent n’enlève en rien les autres qualités de la bière. Le tout reste malté avec une présence caramel collant/sucré légèrement aux lèvres et ce fini somptueux venant du malt fumé.

EdKing (1849) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle care of TimE. Great way to start the night. Colour is lovely clear orange/ red, oily in glass. Nose is marmalade, smokey, caramel and orange fruit. Taste is orange marmalade, with a smokiness which is light wood smoke and not meaty at all. Unusually light body for a barley wine. This is a really delicate, refined barley wine.

Amber golden color. Smokey, apples, dried apricots, Brie on a baggut. Beautiful lightly sticky mouth, lacking hops, really malty with a touch of sourness and smokiness. Rounded. Very drinkable for 9%.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle from the Perfect Pour, MD. Tastes quite aged and mellowed, with an echo of hops ensconced in old leather, and a pronounced funkiness. Maybe they weren’t kidding about the pickled herring. Odd and dissatisfying BW.
