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.

Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, berry, light heavy hoppy, wood. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, tobacco - wood, late finish is smoke notes and light licorice. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat, but sparling in the mouth ! finish feel is moderate alcoholic. [20100817]

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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2010
Bottled. A hazy dark amber with an orangey head. The aroma has strong notes of smoke, over ripe fruits, and salami. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of alcohol, wood, vinegar, smoke, and whiskey as well as notes of hops and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry alcoholic finish, where the alcohol burns the tongue. A bit over the edge for me.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a hazy reddish dark amber with a beige head. The aroma is tart and woody, some caramel. Medium body, some alcohol, caramel and wood while some whisky notes come sailing through. Quite some alcohol burn in the finish. A bit rough. 130710

Bottled. Deep rubyish (slightly amber colour). Small off-white head. Aroma is mild alcohol, some liquorice, some slight hops as well as quite strong sweet maltyness. Flavour is liquorice, some sweet malts, mild alcohol and some slight salted liquorice in the finish. A very pleasantly balanced brew.

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.

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!
