A celebratory beer by Yeastie Boys. They said it couldn’t be done, that it would be undrinkable and, to be fair, many of them still do... But we like to do our own thing. This one-off batch of imperial-strength Rex Attitude is a self-indulgent celebration of being awarded the Morton Coutts Trophy for Innovation at BrewNZ 2011. Dedicated to all the peat freaks who have let us know how much they enjoy Rex: your love helps us through the hate - thank you.

pentaz (1244) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a light lacing dissipating beige small head. Aroma is quite smoked with peat, burnt wood, caramel, iodine, burnt rubber, hay and leather. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Body is near full, texture is oily/light syrupy and carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and smoked. This is a rather different beast than Rex Attitude, the flavors is integrated more by the sweet malt base, but this is a slow sipper. XeRRex packs a lot more punch, but I prefer the in your face Rex Attitude.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - JAN 23, 2013
Tasted from the bottle, on 23/01/2013. Pours of slightly muddy amber, with a good off-white foam. Aroma is so intense, peat, tons of peat and a bit smoky/ashy. Taste is intensely peaty/smoky/sweet, and a bit grassy/floral in the end. Worth to try, hard to drink frequently though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2361) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Thanks to Wombata. Peat, Band-Aids plasticky scent, and smoke. Very light straw color. Light whiskey-ish initial; mid palate brings some fruit, peaches, and then burned car tires; finish is a big smoldering log. Medium heavy body. Equal parts disgusting and intriguing. Peat-heads.... go for it!

KyotoLefty (6832) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2012
Bottled. Dark blond with a thin head. Overwhelming whiskey-peat aroma, smoky, with also light esters, peach, and hospital notes, like band-aids. Not a pleasant nose. Very peaty flavor, estery and roasty as well, much better than the nose. A very interesting example of what can be done with peated malts, but in the end, it tastes rather foul.

tmrmwel (1078) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden, with almost no head at all. The aroma is definitely a love-hate-affair with an extreme smokey peat, tar, whisky and oakey barrels as well as notes of sail ships and sea dogs. Body is full with a creamy texture, with a soft carbonation. The flavour is a bit like sitting right beside a campfire drinking the smokey air. When the smoke fades a bit it’s sweet with caramel malts, grain, bread and some alcohol. Sweet finish with notes of alcohol and ash.

gunnfryd (11437) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Deep golden colour with a white head. Aroma is peat, malt, smoke. Flavour is peat, malt, hay , alcohol, caramel. Peated finish. OK beer.

CitrusP (59) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2012
Poured a lightish golden colour with a fairly quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is intense to say the least, very smoky, peaty, whisky, some cured meats? A bit of ash in there as well. Peat flavours dominate, but there is some residual sweetness. Nice bubbly palate and light body keeps the intense flavour from becoming bogged down. Really different, strange at first, liked it in the end!

WellI tried the Rex earlier in the year, and was given this bottle a Christmas gift. Nice golden colour with great white head. Burnt plastic aroma, petrified rubber flavour. Just too much for me.
