COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A collaboration brew between BrewDog and Mikkeller. This different vintage was brewed in 2009 with a 1/3rd of the beer being aged in a speyside whisky cask before being blended back with the base beer in 2010. The result is a 13.8% barley wine.
NOTE: This is a different recipe to the previous batch and is clearly labelled as Devine Rebel 2010. If the bottle does not say 2010, the rating should go under the first batch.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Thanks for the bottle MagicDave! Wow, a BrewDog Mikkeller collab? YIKES! I should have been prepared for this assault on my senses. It pours reddish brown with a tall fizzy disappearing orange head. The aroma is metallic, tart, spicy and salty with a touch of molasses. Very rude on the palate with apples, vinegar, and a burning alcohol sensation in the back of the throat. It has a bitter semi sweet bakers dark chocolate flavor in the finish. This is brash and way too early to be sampling. I enjoyed it more as I allowed its intoxicating qualities to take effect, but it could definitely use a couple years of age.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Bottle… Hazy caramel ale with no head. The bouquet releases earthiness and whispers of caramel and raw oak. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and understated carbonation. The flavor is alcoholic, bitter and lightly acrid. Finishes raspy, dry and red hot. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
2010 bottle (Batch 406 marked 11/02/10) thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of alcohol, caramel and brandy. Taste is a bit ashy, alcohol and caramel. A ton of alcohol burn, even for the ABV. Not as much fusel as the burn would indicate though. Dry finish. I think last years version was a bit smoother and more enjoyable.

dyetube (1183) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2010
This beer pours a deep muddy amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are dates, leather and pepper. The palate is quite lively and sweet. This was an interesting brew. Cheers!

darkguardian (725) - Florida, USA - APR 30, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy mahogany. Nose is rich caramel and berry with a hint of brown sugar and faint hops. Up front lightly hoppy with a hint of blackberry. Finishes with lots of caramel, vanilla, light smoke and chocolate. Deep and complex however the alcohol makes this a real sipper. Noticable burn in the aftertaste. A great after dinner beer.

joergen (21072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2010
Bottle at home. Hazy red brown coloured with a small beige head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, grass and hops. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, hops, grape fruits and alcohol. Hoppy and warming alcoholic finish. Too much alcohol.

JohnCoyne (73) - Alabama, USA - APR 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish copper color with little to no head. Fizzes like champagne, barley wine so far. Alcohol tickles the nose but is cloyed by light caramel and toast, as well as some sugar fruit. Alcohol forward followed by toasty malt and back to hoppy alcohol on the finish. There is the barest hint of wood in with the hops, giving a strange bitterness not usually associated with hops, more of a kombucha tea bite at the end. I will try another bottle in 6 months and once more in a year to judge how long to age this beer.

Dedollewaitor (14036) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2010
Bottle @ Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours unclear dark brown with a small creamy white head and lacings. Nose is dark malts and hops. Caramel, vague roast and sticky hops. Very piney and bitter. Lasting end.. Some hot alcohol in the end..
