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!

DerWeg (1549) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2010
Gorgeous red gold color, clear, white cap. Insane aromas are scotch-like and peaty-malty and herbal backed by fruit. Taste is salty with leather and peat, dry herbs, fruit, smoke over the finish. A little astringent and dry but OK feel. Stunningly individualistic.

Bouteille 341 ml. 9%. Couleur ambrée orange. Arôme de fumée, de caramel et de malt. En bouche, quelle douceur ! Des notes de caramel et de fumée entrent graduellement. Finale avec une très légère amertume.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
341ml bottle. Seaport Beer Festival. A lot of stewed fruit, sugar and tons of smoke, and I mean TONS. It all follows through on the palate, with the sweetness dying off quickly. A little sticky but overall pretty great.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Pours a clear copper with a rapidly dissipating head. Big caramel aroma with some smokiness. Flavor is sweet but not cloying, with a nice, savory smokey note to it.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin beige head. Intriguing, interesting aroma of salty, smoked herring and caramel. Flavor of salty, smoked herring and caramel. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation. It’s not the best of barley wines, but it has to be the most original!

Toffee and smoke nose -- not much of hops at this point. You can definitely taste the herring in this one. I had much more elaborate notes on this one. I lost them, but I’ll certainly buy another one soon enough. I’m also bottle-aging one of them right now, and I MIGHT edit all this in a few years. The label says that one has a pretty good aging potential.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Toffee and golden raisin nose. Lightly sweet, lots of caramel/toffee, some bread dough, golden raisins, iced tea. Slightly astringent finish, over steeped tea.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2010
341ml bottle. pours a mahogany copper colour with a nice white head that leaves tons of lacing. aroma is spicy and smoky. very nice. taste is also very smoky, but in a good way. lots of caramel and toffee notes. full bodied, and thick on the palate. this is an unbelievable beer. i might even like it more than their Corne de Brume.

12oz bottle at the DC Local tasting. Pours a transparent copper amber with a cloudy beige head. Aroma is smokey peat, caramel sugar. Flavor is smoke, wood, metal. Finish is full bodied with lasting smoke. Weird.
