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.

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!

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 (1181) - 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!

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 (20486) - 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.

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.

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..

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 23, 2010
33 cL bottle. Pours a deep hazzlenut brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dense pinewood hoppy, light alcohol and dark roasted malt. The malt flavours really come through with bread and dense roasted dark caramel. Quite dry and wooden hoppy note mixed into this. Finish has a warmning alcohol note and a mixed bite of the hops and alcohol. Slow sipper and tasty little brew.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2010
Bootle. Pours a reddish amber with thin slightly creamy coloured head. Aromas are quite sweet with plenty of fruit and sugar coming through. Lots of alcohol also. Flavours are a little odd and seem out of balance. Lots of alcohol and some sweetness followed by more alcohol and hop bitterness near the finish. Bottle. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of alcohol, fruits, sugar and wine. Too much alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is again loads of alcohol, very sweet with a nice bitterness and some licorice. Strangely out of balance. Expected more from this collaboration.

dEnk (3680) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2010
Bottle, tfs Vaiz! Brown reddish pour, soapy tanned head. Aroma of fruity hops, some alcohol. Expected more. Flavour is a quite bitter alcoholic liquorice with some peat, smoke and fruit. Nice, but too strong in comparison with the flavour.
