3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has loads of peated ashtray. Slightly hazy, copper coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is a bit sweet, light hoppy, massive ashtray. Cool experiment, but will not be my favourite Yeastie Boys beer.

Buonissima produzione neozelandese, dove i sentori di wisky sono ben presenti e la nota torbata la fa da padrone. Buon equilibrio.

pretty phenomenal, was a bit worried about this going in as i don’t like whiskey but it turned out to be a fantastic smoked beer, predominantly smoked cheese. very tasty and surprisingly easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a deep golden orange with a finger of fading head. Huge smoked peat nose with earthy and apricot flavours. Bit of caramel too. Smells like a glass of talisker. Flavour is vastly different to the nose: massive apricot and caramel sweetness. Nose makes you anticipate a smoky flavour but its actually very sweet. Nice light smoky finish. Shared between three, probably wouldn’t have another glass; very rich, saturated sweet smoke. Points for uniqueness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!
