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.

rosenbergh (11132) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2017
330 ml bottle. BB Jun/19. Thanks Kiwi-Timo!
Clear deep golden amber color with a tiny off-white head. Tar, peat, smoke, tervaleijona and more peat in the aroma. The flavor is peat, malt, smoke and tervaleijona. Not something you wanna drink everyday and a lot. Peat juice.

33 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 06/2019.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Very strong peat aroma, smoky, earthy notes too, mild malty tones and spices. Flavor is sweet malty, caramel, tar, peat and subtle spice notes. A bit aggressive with the peat at first but in the end very nice.

markoijelena (2836) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - DEC 12, 2016
Draft 0.15l at BierProeflokaal In De Wildeman Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 16.11.2016. Pour it hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma smoked with herbal notes, maybe too much smoked for my opinion. Taste first sip only smokey feel, after few sips starts to become lemony sweet smoked like 7up or sprite, strange, funky, smoked finish, skunky, light body, sticky, average carbonation, bitter and smoked finish.

Intense smoke, burnt wood, oak. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Burnt flavours, savoury, smoked bacon, light molasses, pale malts, medium carbonation. Quite an extreme Smoked, quite a bit too much in the aroma, but quite like the palate. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath

explosivedog (659) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 18, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2016 330ml bottle. Its extremely smokey, with lots of meatiness too. Deserves points for novelty, if not for particularly nice beer.

Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is dry and minerally crisp. Massive overwhelming band aids and TCP, intense. Its starts to burn. Some fruits buried deep but frankly - who cares? One dimensional peat bomb. Just because you can, dont mean you should. Awful.

gegwilson (3575) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle from Drink in Hebden Bridge. Pours golden with a fading white head. Big pet smoke aroma. The taste starts with hints of citrus and spice before masses of peaty smoke. An interesting, if not altogether attempt at something a bit different.

thmsboyd (198) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle BBE: Jan 16. Well-chilled. Pours cloudy golden with floaters and a small, tight white head with some patchiness. Extremely high intensity aromas of peat smoke. Highly medicinal, like laphroaig, with a strong meaty smell. Some citrus hops just about make themselves heard through the smoke. Pungent. This slightly dulls the taste buds, but there is a perceptible sweetness and a medium bitterness. There is some body, maybe medium, and a dry woody texture. Carbonation is bang on, about average, and not surprisingly the peat smoke lingers in the finish. Overall this is obviously pretty one-dimensional, but its a worthwhile experiment and actually an enjoyable beer.
