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.

Tasted side-by-side with the original. Pours amber/brown with a big, light tan head. Nose is dark fruit, musty (wet dog), some pitted fruit, some alcohol, sort of metallic, some nuttiness, vinous/dark fruit, salty, cured meat. Taste is malty, but harsh and over-carbonated, with good bit of mustiness, alcohol and chocolate on the swallow.

Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Pours lovely amber chestnut with a small, staying, frothy, off-white head. Heavy caramel aroma, light smokey, some roasted chestnuts, vinious. Low carbonation, fine light oily texture. Flavour has sweetness, rather powerful vinious, caramel malty, light fruity and a good smoke note. Some peity oak in the finish. Perhaps a bit too harsh in alcohol.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Pour is ruddy brownish amber with a thin dense skin of a tan head...smell is boozey and sweet up front with some strong notes of wood...vanilla, molasses, prunes...taste is sweet and one sided with prunes and booze...some hints of char or bitter wood too...quick finish...thin bodied...far from offensive and easily drinkable, but boring.
