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.

As a 62 year old beer drinker originating from the Netherlands and an enthusiastic Belgian beer drinker I can say that this is easily the foulest stuff I ever smelled or tasted

Wombata (467) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 12, 2012
Bottle. Aroma: Smoky peat, whiskey-like but without the alcohol burn, bandaids, woody earth. Palate: Smooth, almost weightless mouth feel that is almost ethereal. Flavor: Brief note of honey quickly swamped by a tsunami of smoky peat. Finishes with grilled flavors and notes of barbeque. Comments: As if the Red Rackham, which I loved, wasn’t wacky enough, this one takes the cake. But, don’t be afraid; just approach with care. Though just about everyone says it’s too over-the-top, I like that it has the character of whiskey without the weight or alcohol burn. Also, the palate is brilliant. This could blend very nicely with a stout; or, after an evening of tasting a lot of imperial stouts, this would make a good night cap. As is, it’s an acquired taste. I would try it again though.
