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.

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.

Bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is all Islay, with tons of smokey whiskey. Flavour is intense, with nothing but smoky Islay. What a monolithic beer. Not exactly good, but a cool beer to try.

fonefan (35959) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2012

Bottle 330ml.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, moderate to heavy smoke, peat, wood smoke. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long long duration, initial just smoke smoke and smoke, wood and dry, later i did also get light yeast and fruit in the back ground. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Fun beer but to smokey to me ;O) [20120523]

Bottle, bought @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph.
Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is heavy peity smokey, crisp and light doughy malts. Medium carbonation, dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a lot of smoke, peity, fairly crisp malts. Quite citric and grassy bitter finish.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2012
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.
