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.

Prokroustis (679) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 8, 2012
Very dark red body with an off white head. Strong, complex aroma with burned caramel, liqueur, butter, blackberries, grapes, honey, brown sugar. Warming, full body. Somewhat unbalanced flavour with sweet notes like blackberries and brown sugar as well as quite bitter pine notes, a hint of whiskey.

brokensail (10590) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with a khaki head. The nose is malty with lots of caramel, toast, toffee, and a hint of brown sugar. Some wood and vanilla notes and a hint of whiskey. There is a touch of fruitiness as well as some alcohol. Despite the age of the beer, still somewhat hoppy/bitter. Mild oxidation, caramel, toffee, and toasted bread. Mild oak flavors to it and a subtle fruitiness. As with the nose, just a little bit of alcohol heat.

Cloudy dark-red brown beer, big frothy tan head. Light palate - dry and a little soft. This is a big beer! Port Wine and Brandy tones immediately obvious but held in check but surprising espresso coffee bitterness. The bitterness ebbs leaving strong spirity malt. Finishes a little dry with minerals, spice and a little cherry. Quite different from the original. Could do with some time though!

2 finger red-beige head that fast sinks to 0mm. Red-amber body. Nose: Madeira, figs, dates and wine-gum. Aroma: Dates, figs, alcohol-sting, madeira, chocolate, toffee, oranges and grapefruit. Liqueur-like. Long semi-sweet ending with some bitterness and sharp alcohol-sting.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s BrewDog tasting. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin yellowish head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, caramel and lots of alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is very present again with moderate bitterness.

shoulderbroken (1849) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 16, 2012
Bottle from Kris Wines, some time last year. Pours dark red brown with bubbly gold head. Aroma is smoky, boozy, lots of dark fruit, wood, whisky. Intense spiky and spicy booziness. Taste is quite smooth though. Taste is very boozy, can really taste the wood and whisky of the barrel. Very malty, even with a touch of caramel like creaminess. There is some bitterness at the end, but this is overwhelmed by the booze kick. Bit spice too. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable. This is pretty nice. Probably wouldn’t have more than one in a sitting though!

Bottle from beerplanet web shop. hazy brown color with small beige head. Aroma of toffee, cookies, dried tropical fruit, whiskey. Taste, milk chocolate, dried tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel, wood, whiskey, bitter hops. Long alcoholic bitter finish. Nice complex beer.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours a dark cloudy orange with a small head. Smells divine, of prunes, caramel, red berries, wood, and a slight hint of whisky. Tastes of a heavy bitter, medium tartness, and medium sweetness. Pine, prune, acetic, and heavy alcohol. Texture is oily, carbonation is medium, body is medium. Finishes quite alcoholic, with a large bitterness, Interesting, but mostly a one-time beer.
