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.

A-- Poured a golden straw color. bright white head and decent retention. S-- Peat, smoke, ash, followed by bread and sweet carmel. Good nose after it got through the peat. T-- Subdued peat, smoke and ash. Once you get through the peat get a lot of sweet bread and yeast. Complex as heck taste as goes through a lot to get to the malt. M-- Honestly thought a malt liquor as slightly sweet and slightly peaty. Just a lot going on with this beer. Very smooth beer once get through the peat. Slightly thick and syrupy body but sticks well in the end. Low carbonation and light clean feel for all the peat. O-- Smoked beer disguised as a strong ale. Very well done. Hve some patience with this and will be rewarded. Something very different out of the Southern Hemisphere and worth seeking out as the body is worth finding beneath all the peat in this. Very complex beer and worth buying again.

Bottle at Denis’. Pale yellowy amber, thin white head. Amazing but incredibly intense smokey nose - intense peat, Laphroaig phenols, ashtray, campfire, wet wool, horse blanket, slightest lemony hops. Soft malt front, a big surprise! Juicy hops also. Prominent smoke, but it’s tempered by big warm malt flavours. Woodsmoke returns on the finish, with juicy hops finally appearing. Soft fruity smoky linger. A total paradox, really fascinating.

330ml bottle. Looks are so deceiving. Clear golden amber colour with a soft white head. The smoke can be smelt from across the room, like a campfire, peaty and full on. The flavour takes your breath away and one sip and your mouth tastes like you smoked a packet of cigarettes. Strips all other flavours from the mouth. It’s going to take a while to drink this one.

Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, off-white head. The aroma has a solid dose of smoke and peat, leaving little room for other aromas. Some caramel and alcohol, and also a little hoppy touch. Peaty, warming, full-bodied, dry, smoked flavor with some hints of caramel. Lasting finish with lots of peat. A quite nice one, but too peaty I think. 120623
