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.

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. :-(

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.

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.

blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle [11.2oz]. Pours a cloudy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma is all peat -- really, it’s just peat. Flavour is all peat all the time along with maybe some fruit and malt in there. Medium bodied. Funny story, when I popped the cap my dog instantly looked up, started sniffing the air and proceeded to get up and go nuts and sniff the air continuously. I figured out it smells just like the Denta Sticks we give him. An interesting beer for sure, I liked it.

Odore di torba che si conferma poi in bocca. Lascia un gusto affumicato che fa innamorare.

Bottle. Holy cow, I wish somebody had warned me about this one. But everyone made fun of me after I ordered it. Pire peat and smoke, through and through. And the bar I’m at can’t take food orders now because they’re busy and the kitchen is stessed out. So I’m stuck with this one. Oh well.
