Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This oak-aged gentle giant has been gaining popularity over the past few years and is now available year-round.

For Burton Baton, we brew two "threads," or batches, of beer: an English-style old ale and an imperial IPA.

After fementating the beers separately in our stainless tanks, they're transferred and blended together in one of our large oak tanks. Burton Baton sits on the wood for about a month.

When enjoying the Burton Baton, you'll find an awesome blend of the citrus notes from Northwestern hops melding with woody, vanilla notes from the oak. The wood also tends to mellow the 10% ABV of Burton, so tread cautiously!

70 IBU

Dogfish head never ceases to impress me. This beer is fantastic. Surprisingly clear for an IIPA. Smell is very smooth. Not extreme on the hops side as I'm sure the Oak Barrels lay it down a bit.

The taste is whats killer. I really cant decribe it. Not too bitter, but has a bight. Not very alcoholish though you can taste it. Yea, Just try it yourself. Maybe others can review it better than me. But I've had a lot of different beers, and this is one I always try to keep in the fridge.
