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.

Courtesy of MartinT, bottled 2010, 11% ABV
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.
Interesting.

mcberko (13023) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
341mL bottle, pours an opaque dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is of dried dark fruits (dates, figs, apricots), toffee, and grapes. Flavour of grapes, other dark dried fruits, some toffee, a bit of oxidation, and some rubber. Not sure if this tastes old or if it’s just crafted this way. Medium complexity that drinks easily enough for a barley wine and doesn’t cloy. Standard, nothing special.

Lubiere (12574) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2009
A reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. A nice candy malty aroma, with treacle, light c-hops, vinous notes. In mouth, a very peated barley wine, a bit nutty, veering on a smoked malty vienna. Nice offering. Bottle at Mondiale 2009.
