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.

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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

Yes, it’s peaty... hello?! Easier with a blocked nose, like mine, but still... Perfectly drinkable, and I like the unique, smoky after-taste, so there.

330ml bottle. Wow it took a while to work my way through this one. Murky hazy amber colour and the look of this beer does nothing to prepare you for the full on big smokey aroma, wet and peaty like mud but not in an unpleasant way. The flavour is like you licked an ashtray or just smoked a packet of cigarettes. Certainly has attitude.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 5, 2012
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.
