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.

Darkguardian brought this gem over, and man it was great. Garnet colored. The aroma had veins of malt, whisky and smoke. The taste was outstanding, especially as it warmed up. The flavors were malt, oak, mild whiskey, light smoke, with a hint of chocolate, burnt caramel, and dark fruits...

Amazingly smooth for such a high vol beer. Has a taste of whiskey about it and a woody aftertaste. Excellent choice!

Bottle pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma is full and bold with rich notes of pine hops mixing with some grapefruit citrus hops as well as some malty sweetness and spicy hops at the end of the draw. Yes, this is going to be goooood. The taste is thick yumminess with rich pine hops that roll from flavor hops right into firm bitterness, grapefruit hop bitterness and much lesser amounts of floral hops showing up here and there. This is all yummy goodness!

Similar pour with a very pretty, translucent, dark ruby color with an average, yellowish-beige, pillowy head which is diminishes to a thin froth and leaves some tight lace rings behind. Nose is nicer than the last year’s version; fruit cake, red currant, fig, pound cake, lots of sweet caramel and molasses, vanilla, and similar woodsy notes but a bit more smoky from the Scotch. Flavor is actually nicer than I would have thought with the scotch notes remaining in the background allowing the complexity of the beer emerge; still fruity with fruit cake notes, red currant, almost cherry, dried apricot, molasses and sweet caramels still prominent, vanilla, then the peaty notes and dry wood come in with hop flavors notes as well (leafy, spicy, and floral). As the flavors begin to finish, a dark chocolate note emerges and stick on the tongue. Palate is a bit more carbonated than last year’s... Very full, lightly syrupy, warming, velvety, and lively. Finishes very long, the dark chocolate taking forever, fruit of currant and dried apricots, and pepper diminishing but leafy hops left. The bitterness of the beer is felt by the warmth, pepper notes, hops, and the dark chocolate which really balanced the intense, rich maltiness from the base beer. I am amazed how the Scotch barrels added more complexity to the beer as opposed to overpowering and adding too much "Scotch" characteristics, which I do not tend to enjoy. The thing that amazed me most was the dark chocolate notes moving into the finish; something that I did not get last year and something that may have come from the Scotch barrels?? Again, Mikkeller does something amazing and with the help of another brewery which I am growing to love as well (so long as the Scotch notes are kept in check).
