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.

Gluepot (593) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2016
The nose is delicious, featuring Scotch whisky, malt, prunes, dark berries and fruit jam. Dense murky dark brown colour suits the style. A well balanced taste profile leads with some booze, prunes, brown sugar, toffee and tropical fruit. Some oak as well as fruity hops create some edge on a rich sweet beer.

zoucrew102 (1725) - - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle with bottled on date of 2/15/11. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes of smoke and whiskey. Pours dark caramel brown colored with and very short-lived white head with nonexistent lacing. Starts with a lot of sweet caramel and some dark fruit. Finishes very smooth with lots of peaty smoke and a bit a whiskey and only the smallest hint if the booziness. Excellent barleywine.

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

zimbo (949) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Light pale nose. More active than its sister beer. Some syrup. Tamer and nice but could do with more definition and individuality.

330ml bottle, cheers Craig. Pours hazy reddish brown, no head. Aromas are sherry and Christmas cake. Taste is more of the same, light boozy whisky note. Much smoother than the earlier version, nice.

Bottle, thanks Craig. Nice mahogany red with off white head. Aroma of sherry, dried fruits. Taste is oxidised in a nice way, sherry and dried fruits. Quite sweet and bitter. Nice
