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.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Dark amber with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is of light whisky, wood tabacco and smoke. Taste is of pine, roasted malt, whiskey and lots of booze.

Theydon_Bois (18966) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle at home, from Bitter Virtue, 13/06/13. Dark chestnut brown with a scummy looking light tan head, like dirty soap in a sink basin. Looked so much better when it first poured! Nose is rich caramel and toffee, sugars, touch of booze, marzipan, woody tones, light medicinal/germaline notes. Taste comprises burnt toffee, rich caramel, demerara sugars, dates, raisens, boozey touch. Full bodied, fine carbonation but dangerously drinkable for 13.8%! A pretty decent barley wine, alcohol is well disgusied for the ABV, easy drinking and for a 330ml bottle to myself I never tired of this one as is sometimes the case with a BW!

Beer5000 (6393) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2013
330 ml bottle. Cloudy, deep red body with medium sized, fast disappearing beige head. Aroma has caramel malt, hoppy fruit, berries, spices and some yeast and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, fruit, hops, some wood and quite bitter. Fine body and a long, pleasant aftertaste. Nice and smooth, prefer this from the previous version.

humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - MAR 9, 2013
(33 cl bottle from Studenterhuset Aarhus; Batch 406; Claims to be bottled on 11/02/15, which I presume means February 15th 2011) Pours dark copper with medium, tan head. Decent regeneration and some lace. Aroma is malty and complex with notes of molasses, honey, pepper, oak and a hint of oxydation as well as booze. The body is extremely full, carbonation soft, texture oily and the finish is warming and dry towards the end. Taste is mostly sweet with an astringent edge. I guess it would be good for a rainy day in Scotland but barley wine is simply not one of my favourite styles.

onceblind (9191) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Clear dark amber, no head. Odd aroma of berries and boozy syrup. Palate wrecking flavor of intense boozy notes, berries, currants, and woody liquor.
