xeRRex is an imperial strength version of their modern classic, Rex Attitude. One might describe these beers as an acquired taste. While the use of peat-smoked malt in a beer isn't especially unusual, the received wisdom is to include it as a small percentage of the malt bill. The Yeastie Boys aren't really ones to heed 'received wisdom' so they decided to make the world's first beer with 100% peat-smoked whisky malt from Inverness. Obviously, smoke dominates the aroma and taste leading to favourable comparisons to Islay whisky or unfavourable ones to the ashes of a spent barbecue. Look out for other subtle flavours and you may taste hints of feijoa, bacon or formaldehyde. xeRRex is actually a touch sweeter and smoother than its little brother.

The Beer Jerk budget wouldn't stretch to flights to England to interview Stu. Luckily we found a local guy who helped us out, take a look at the interview below.
