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!

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.

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.

Travlr (10035) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Lenny at the DC local tasting. Dark copper color. Aroma of licorice. Taste has malt, caramel, and a slightly bitter finish. Pretty unremarkable.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2010
RBWG 2010- shared by goldtwins. Pours a medium amber and thin head. Fruity aroma, caramel toffee, sweet oxidation, sharp crystal, smoke, porky, meaty, soy with hairy dog and honey sweetness- a bit of funk and a bit off. Flavor is meaty, smoked ham, a touch woody, more earthy wet dog hair, sweet tea, earth, honey molasses and brown sugar- medicinal and bandaid as it warms unfortunately.

Aroma smells a bit rotten. Smoke and some sweetness. Flavor is smoke and burnt caramel.

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2010
500 mL bottle from Jovi in Gatineau. Bottled October ’09. (Love the warning: "May contain traces of smoked herring!") Almost clear amber orange in colour with a small, sticky, orange-beige head. Not your typical Barley Wine aroma - it smells malty, but it’s more one dimensional cereal malty, and there is no suggestion of malt or alcohol. Or smoke. The flavour is more interesting, however. The smoke is there, as is some significant alcohol. I’m probably just imagining the herring. The body is a little thin, though, for the style, and the malt is still pretty one dimensional. Still no hops. Maybe some age would help this one.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2010
Shared during RBWG 2010. The pour is a pretty red. The aroma is big sweet and some meat. The flavor is similar but very plastic and medicinal. Oh boy.
