Yeastie Boys recently released xeRRex in 330ml bottles. It’s a one-off batch of 10%abv “Imperial Rex Attitude” that was brewed to celebrate their Morton Coutts Trophy win at BrewNZ 2011. Interestingly the malt sweetness from the increased alcohol makes it slightly less “peaty” than the standard 7%abv Rex.

Deep amber-orange colour, hazy, little carbonation
No head whatsoever
Strong rubber, whisky, earthy, slightly hoppy and floral aroma
Medium chalky, dry mouthfeel with little carbonation
Strong whisky, peaty, smoky bacon crisps, rubber tires, sweet, earthy and slight passionfruit flavour
Smoky, ham, rubber (Germolene?), barbecue sauce and apple aftertaste, slightly lingering, no carbonation
A nice smoked beer behind the rubber
Smokey greatness

Has a great smokeyness that gives it a flavour I love.

Let's take a regular high-strength IPA and make it Imperial in strength. Let's get the masters of the art at Yeastie Boys to do it. That would be my plan but Yeastie Boys have saved me the time. Perfection
