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!

14/I/2012 341ml bottle @ RBBWG 2012 - bottled: IX/2011 (2012-47) Thanks to Antoine & Nicholas for bringing the bottle!

Clear light orange beer, no head. Aroma: sweet malts, little saline, spices, some milk chocolate, bit flowery. MF: ok carbon, full body. Taste: smoky start, very malty, peppery, salty touch, sweet alcohol. Aftertaste: more pepper, some citrus, bitter hops, bit cheesy, bready finish.

sebletitje (10284) - 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.

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.

TimE (6069) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2012
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.

3.5
cfrancis (3536) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours a foggy auburn with a thin white top and some lacing. Aroma is smoke, light deli meats and malt. Taste is toasted malts and barely, slight sting of alcohol, raisins and fig.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
This was just fantastic, with a perfect combination of gentle smokiness atop a balanced molasses and fleur de sel flavour. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit of burnt bitterness and the right amount of non-intrusive alcohol. One of my new faves.

Moins complexe, à mon avis, que la Corne de Brume. Elle est excellente toutefois. Je perçois d’avantage le côté salin des îles.
