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.

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.

A beer that certainly isn’t for everyone. Ultra smoked with a thick, oily viscosity and an intense flavor using peat malt (yeah, the kind typically used to make spirits, not beers) Not sure of the color because I drank it from the bottle, and while it was far from delicious, it was certainly one of the most interesting beers I’ve ever tasted. Very smokey, oily, extremely dry finish. Intense.

That’s smokey. Sensory overload really. If you like smoked meat then this beer is for you. I would not suggest eating with this beer.

330ml bottle from Oak Barrel, Sydney. Pale golden pour with a white head. Prominent smoky nose with peat and medinical notes that fortunately is not reflected too much on the tongue which is surprisingly mild comparatively, although smoky bacon and woody elements are still there to be enjoyed. Finishes dry with a subtle lingering smokiness. This is not a style I naturally warm to but this is one of the better smoked beers I have tasted.

Bottle share. Thanks Amanda! Cloudy yellow. Aroma is earthy peat, straw, honey. Taste is sweet. A bit thin but really interesting and great aroma.

330ml bottle. Pours yellow with almost no head. Smells like a sweet smoky scotch that doesn’t know it’s actually beer. Lots of peat in the taste as well. Rather an experimental beer than anything else though.

Hazey dark straw colour with thin white head. Peaty aroma. Aged whiskey giving slight tangy flavour which is difficult to describe.

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.

Bottle shared by ajax25g. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy peat, pear esters, earthy hops. Flavor is medicinal phenols and smoke, peat, pear esters, light malt and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

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.
