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!

Pours rusty orange with a quick gone off-white head. Floral aroma with butterscotch and smoke hints. Oily texture combined with a smooth mouthfeel. You don’t taste the 11%. Sadly, in my opinion, they tried to mix too much things in that beer. The Barley-Rauchust could had been a great combination but... I don’t know. Something missing. Maybe too much balanced!...

Pretty pricey for a regular bottle but with more than twice the abv (11%)of a regular one too! Poured a very hazy dark amber colour, with not much head and ok lacing. Almost looks like mango juice. Very strong aromas, barley malts, caramel, dry fruits. Flavour is very strong, a bit of alcohol is apparent, dark roasted malts, bitterness with the spices, sugary sweetness. Really has a smokey mouthfeel, a faint burnt feeling. This is definitely a one shot deal. Pretty good, just a bit too expensive.

**Bouteille 2010** Une mousse très timide se sauve rapidement d’une bière trouble aux accents orangés. Le bouquet est majoritairement végétal, mais des notes sucrées de caramel et de pommes confites rendent le tout intéressant. Je fus surpris de constater que la carbonatation était encore très active. J’avais l’impression de boire un Grand Marnier gazé, jumelé avec des pointes fumées toutes subtiles. Elle a très bien tenu la route cette bière.

Bottle. This Abri a la Tempete Barleywine was a slow gusher that poured a dark copper with a thick fluffy beige head. It has a very bready sweet caramel & lemony aroma. Very full bodied with a silky mouthfeel. The taste really surprised me with a delicious soft smoked maple bacon flavor - extremely Québécois in terms of taste. A truly unique Barleywine.

milara (65) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Le nez est puissant et dégage des arômes fortes de caramel et de fruit très mûres. On sent aussi le côté fumé. J’adore l’équilibre que le corps épais du vin d’orge amène aux malts fumés. De plus c’est chaleureux, sucré et j’aime ça.

This small brewery BW is a real revelation. It hits some balances that I love in a barleywine - roasted caramel malts, some booziness,understated rich tropical fruit and maybe apricots - augmented by some unusual elements - smokiness and some saltiness, reflecting the ocean environment in which it was brewed. Definitely one of my all-time BW favourites. It is a pity that L’Abri de la Tempete produces so little volume, making availability in central Canada a bit of an issue.

Bottle. Label notched N 11 (so I’m guessing this was bottled in November 2011). Dark fruits, nutty, caramel, some earth, and some brown sugar. Alcohol content well hidden - I enjoy this (or could it be the atmosphere; drinking outside, in Old Montreal on vacation).

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bouteille 341 ml de Paris Ste Bière. Belle bière ambrée à courte mousse crème. Arômes maltés, fumés, caramélisés. La bouche est un peu picotante mais onctueuse, sirupeuse, maltée fumée avec des notes de sucre d’orge, caramel salé et acidité. Note de poisson fumé, hareng saur à peine excessif. Fruitée et complexe mais écoeurante sur la longueur. De plus très (trop?) chère.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml. Embouteillée en septembre 2009, dégustée le 7 février 2010 (snifter). Bière brune caramel tirant sur le cognac. Mousse peu, col mince beige, éphémère. Assez effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de bois, d’aigre et d’alcool. Forte, assez sucrée, très peu amère. Goût de fumée, de bois et de caramel, de sucre brun. Alcool bien caché. Assez robuste, manque de complexité. Heureusement pas de trace de hareng fumé tel qu’annoncé sur l’étiquette.

erickok (4096) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Light amber body and small head. Belgian yeast, light caramel malts, biscuit, cereal but not sweet. Harsh woody bitterness, raw grains, alcohol, almond and heat of the alcohol in the aftertaste. Doesn’t live up to the price and rating here in RB at all for me. Not really a barley wine either. Not enough sweetness to work as a sipper, too much alcohol for a tripel and too little smoothness to work as English style old ale. (341ml bottle from Paris St Bière)
