COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They said it couldnt be done, that it would be undrinkable, that we couldnt 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 Scotlands 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 worlds first beer made from 100% heavy peated distilling malt.


Dont fucking sniff it and swirl... this is Scottish malt. Drink it.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Mostly hazy golden yellow color. Thin white head. Good ropes and bits of lace. Big peaty smokey aroma. Very peaty, and campfire smokey, I like this kind of thing, but its very aggressive. Some light caramel malt underneath, light citrusy, spicy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, and a moderate lingering smokey savoriness, that lends a sort of pulled pork barbecue meatiness to the finish. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter, crisp carbonation. Lightly slick in the finish. Very good peaty smoked ale, with no shortage of smoke. Im a fan of the smoked ale style, so I really enjoyed this...

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2013
The head is ok, the body gold-orange. It smells smoky-crazy, hoppy-aromatic, malty. The taste is smoky-very smoky, smoked fish, wood-bacon, alcoholic-creamy. Strange, strong and amazing! 3.8

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
hazy gold, thin white ring. Smokey stable nose, earthy an overpowering. Smokey flavor up front, burnt chemical notes in the end. Very thin, amazing that it supports the flavor, but the finish is a mess.

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.

nimbleprop (7867) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
12oz bottle pours a clear gold with some swirling white head. Nose is all smoke and rubber, rubber band, cleaning fluid... and rubber. Flavor has some honey sweetness then just kicks you with smokey burning tires. Sickly, rubbery finish. Gross. :-(

radagast83 (7660) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Poured a small, white head. Lots of peat notes, earthy hops. Flavor is smoke, easters, light malts, some peat. This is interesting, very bold and a touch funky.

BeerandBlues2 (12685) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
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.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Hazy amber pour with a small white head. Heavy peaty smoke aroma with mild astringency. A bit a malt sweetness on the tip of the tongue fading into a lot a peaty smoke with no real finish. Too much and not well put together.
