Brew Dog Mikkeller: Devine Rebel

I rip on their labels, but love the beer. This is actually a collaboration with a Dutch Brewery. Pretty cool.

Let the label mocking begin! In a rock 'n roll collaboration. 2 of Europe's most extreme, experimental brewers have combined forces, talents and ideas to produce this innovative ale. This is the most rocking, kick-ass thing I have heard of. It's the beer version of Elton John and Billy Joel's Piano Man tour.

Uniting Inspiration, ingredients and people from around the world this beer was brewed and aged at Brewdog in Scotland.

This rebellious beer is partially aged in oak Speyside whisky barrels and partially agted in stainless steel, comines an ale yeast and champagne yeast and showcases a hop variety.

That's it. Remind me again, what did the Dutch folks contribute?

How does it taste? It's good. There is a hint of whisky, but it is not at all peaty. Mostly oak on the fore. The finish is sweet and caramelly. The color is a deep amber. There is very little carbonation.

Cost: $9.99 for a 12 oz bottle. That's no typo.
Grade: B+
Cost Adjusted Grade: B. I know that it's not a six-pack beer. But $10 for a 12 oz bottle. Give me a break.
