COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They said it couldn’t be done, that it would be undrinkable, that we couldn’t use more than 5% heavy peated malt in a beer. So we carefully considered their advice and decided to try 100% instead. Rex Attitude is inspired by French techno and the whisky of Scotland’s west coast. Like the ’Auld Alliance’ it combines a little Scottish rogue with a dose of French je ne sais quoi. It is, as far as we know, the world’s first beer made from 100% heavy peated distilling malt.


Don’t fucking sniff it and swirl... this is Scottish malt. Drink it.

33cl bottle. Pours clear golden, had to vigorously pour to form a head. Iodine, band aid...nothing but peated malt here. Thin body with flabby carbonation. More of the same to drink, but once my palate is completely coated with peat, I get some long lingering stewed vegetable going on. I like Islay scotch, but there is a reason nobody else has done 100% peated malt.

Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has mainly peat, medicin, ashtray, but there is an occasional hop sparkling in the nose. Clear, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter and full of ashtray. Slightly carbonated, body is relative thin which makes it more drinkable. How ever the pure ashtray is just not really enjoyable. But well, bonus points because it’s such a cool experiment. ;-)

12 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 in 2012. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized disappearing white head. The aroma and flavor were all peated smoke, alcohol, as the beer warmed it added some hints of wood, some sweetness with a dry finish. I am not the biggest fan of the peated whiskey type beers.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Mostly hazy golden yellow color. Thin white head. Good ropes and bits of lace. Big peaty smokey aroma. Very peaty, and campfire smokey, I like this kind of thing, but it’s very aggressive. Some light caramel malt underneath, light citrusy, spicy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, and a moderate lingering smokey savoriness, that lends a sort of pulled pork barbecue meatiness to the finish. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter, crisp carbonation. Lightly slick in the finish. Very good peaty smoked ale, with no shortage of smoke. I’m a fan of the smoked ale style, so I really enjoyed this...

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Smokey. I loved it, and normally i?m not a huge fan of Smokey Beers. The yeasty boys seems like a very nice brewery

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2013
The head is ok, the body gold-orange. It smells smoky-crazy, hoppy-aromatic, malty. The taste is smoky-very smoky, smoked fish, wood-bacon, alcoholic-creamy. Strange, strong and amazing! 3.8

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
hazy gold, thin white ring. Smokey stable nose, earthy an overpowering. Smokey flavor up front, burnt chemical notes in the end. Very thin, amazing that it supports the flavor, but the finish is a mess.

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
330mL. Pours a clear straw with white bubbles, no head. Nose is ridiculous Islay single malt Scotch style with apple pie, mega peat, chamomile, iodine. Taste is way overpowering though with no body to match the intensity. Comes across as too chemical with turpentine and formaldehyde, soil, and ash. Headache inducing.

12oz bottle pours a clear gold with some swirling white head. Nose is all smoke and rubber, rubber band, cleaning fluid... and rubber. Flavor has some honey sweetness then just kicks you with smokey burning tires. Sickly, rubbery finish. Gross. :-(

33cl bottle, thanks ajax25g. Medium white head atop hazy light amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, burnt rubber, smoke. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some peat, smoke. Light-medium body, light stickiness.
