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.

Lots of bourbon. Very boozy. Lots of oak smell, too. Eventually flavors of coffee and pepper come out. This stuff is really heavy and kind of tedious...

Scopey (5526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle originally from BrewDog online. BrewDog rating #200. It pours deep ruby with a rapidly diminishing yellow head. The nose is quite savoury, wood, earth, brown bread, spice, tart fruit skin, date, fig, berry, faint jam. The taste is plum skin, date, red grape, fig, faint fruity tartness, toffee, wood, varnish, resin, alcohol warmth, spice and some medicinal whisky notes with a dry, bitter finish. Full body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Good depth of flavour and well balanced. The fine carbonation lifts it and makes it rather drinkable also. Tasty.

Cellared bottle. Pours murky brown with no head. Aroma is slightly over-ripened stone fruit (very specific, I know). Taste is oxidized a bit, sweet....I taste plum, Sticky sweet and slightly cloying. Kind of a mess but this may have been improperly stored. I will try another to make a better assessment.

angel77 (521) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2013
Botella de 33 cl tranquilamente en casa una noche de junio de 2011. Una auténtica maravilla. Sabores tostados, café y toque ahumado y madera de whisky. Algo de dulzor también. Una maravilla además con 13.8 vol. Para darle más vidilla a la cosa. Una gran pena que no haya más.

MatteoD. (124) - ITALY - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Piccola testa di schiuma giallognola fine e poco persistente, colore marrone scuro, aroma di whisky, di malti tostati e di vino invecchiato, al palato corpo pieno, nota alcolica importante, poca carbonazione, note di toffee, vaniglia, frutta candita, finale amaro e lungo. Non male anche se non č la tipologia di birra che apprezzo di piů .

Beerdedone (2488) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of whisky, caramel, toffee, vanilla and some dark fruit. Flavor was strong and boozy with caramel, brown sugar, whisky barrel, vanilla and some notes of toffee. Full bodied with soft carbonation and had a oily texture.

Jimmythespoon (438) - CYPRUS - JUL 7, 2013
Rated from backlog, Aroma is sweet and complex, taste has heavy alcohol with hints of whiskey and mroe on the sweet side. Ok beer but didn’t find this very special.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Dark amber with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is of light whisky, wood tabacco and smoke. Taste is of pine, roasted malt, whiskey and lots of booze.

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle at home, from Bitter Virtue, 13/06/13. Dark chestnut brown with a scummy looking light tan head, like dirty soap in a sink basin. Looked so much better when it first poured! Nose is rich caramel and toffee, sugars, touch of booze, marzipan, woody tones, light medicinal/germaline notes. Taste comprises burnt toffee, rich caramel, demerara sugars, dates, raisens, boozey touch. Full bodied, fine carbonation but dangerously drinkable for 13.8%! A pretty decent barley wine, alcohol is well disgusied for the ABV, easy drinking and for a 330ml bottle to myself I never tired of this one as is sometimes the case with a BW!
