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.

On tap at Bangers and Lace. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is intense peat that imparts heavy earthy smoke, leather and a hint of bandaid. Flavor has heavy peat that gives a earthy, bog peat note with underlying leather, ashtray and smoked meats. A bit overwhelming.

Certainly a really a beer that I’ll remember. The aroma is a blast of smoked malt notes which pretty much cover everything else. I am a big fan of peated whiskey (luckily, or I would not have survived this one), so I enjoyed it a lot, but it certainly is rather extreme.

Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
A hazed golden blonde ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, suoer smokey malt with wood extract, molasses, phenolics, intense. In mouth, a smooth smoked up malt with wood extracts, phenols, intense yet restrained, pleasant, would be good with ham. On tap at Ginger Man NYC, Sept 21, 2012.

Works great as a concept. But the smokey character is simply to much, thius it is to unrefined. It’s simply to hard distinguishing flavours other than peated malts. The colour is great though!

Pours a lively golden color with a four finger rocky foam head that sticks and laces like a champ. On the nose woooohhh. Scotish peat malt, smoked ham, cedar, wet oak and touches of vanilla bean. A very similar palate with a more refreshing mid to late profile than expected but still a bit to much campfire smokiness to really get me excited. In fact was more excited a friend showed up a sip into and I slipped a third of the brew into his glass to lighten my load. Worth trying and very amped up palate that would be lethal with the perfect salty briny pairing but alone a bit overwhelming in the flavor department.

Aroma is pure scotch whisky. The flavor is, sorry, I really don’t like scotch, I can’t rate this any higher.

Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma has notes of bacon, smoke, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of bacon, smoke, caramel, and a bit of peat, leading to a dry finish.

cloudy light orange,solid head/lacing. I fucking sniffed it,my bad and it was spearmint/evergreen/bandaid smoked bugspray with campfire with some slight sweet fruit. Taste is some sweet malt,with weird smoked tones like someone just threw their whole campsite food and tents into the campfire and bbqed it. Finish is tobacco ash linger Like a weird night where you accidentally drank a cig but in a can of beer weird... but better. If you camp and smell your clothes the next day, this is what it tastes like in your mouth after drinking it for a while.
