Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  10.00% ABV

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!

4.83/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer poured a bright copper/orange color with a medium white head that leaves a ring of lace down the side of the glass. The aroma is the grassy/piney note that you expect from the DFH offerings mellowed by the oak that lends a hint of vanilla. The vanilla combines nicely with the toffee character of the malt. Taste does not have the “malt-up-front” I’m used to and expect in the DFH IPA. Much more subtle. The vanilla/toffee character comes across stronger than I expected too. Very rich and smooth mouth feel. Very little hop bite. Mellow alcohol warming. Very drinkable beer. Dogfish does it again.

This is one of the best beers I've had in the past year. An absolute beauty. It smells of wood and hops simultaneously. Beautiful amber color, and a smooth but hoppy taste. Mellow and exilirating at the same time, there is no way this is 10% abv! But it is. Oh, it is. My favorite Dogfish beer by far. A masterpiece.

12 oz bottle poured into snifter. Bottle date 12/11/12.

I've been meaning to try this for a while now, and after seeing it in a new liquor store tonight at $14.99 for a 4 pack I said why the hell not.

A: Pours an unremarkable amber color with almost no head to speak of, but does leave nice lacing on the glass.

S: Almost no hops in the aroma actually. I pick up mostly a smell of fruit, most notably raisins. Also a slight vanilla hint reminiscent of bourbon.

T: Wow, I am really impressed, there is a big complexity here. Finally I get the hops, nice and citrusy, along with the sweetness from the malt. There's a really nice balance between the bitter/sweet here which I am really loving. It also has a different quality because of the barrel aging that gives it a nice warming effect. If I didn't know this beer was 10% ABV I would never guess, there is no alcohol burn whatsoever.

O: Dogfish Head is by far my favorite brewery in existence. I really wish I had gotten this beer sooner, it's not my favorite brew they make, but it is definitely enjoyable, and I plan on aging a few bottles in the cellar.

Had on tap at Hop Devil Grill in NYC a few weeks back. Pours hazy amber/orange/red with a creamy/foamy 2 finger beige head that faded very slowly; brew left very good lacing. Smells of floral hops, sweet malt, citrus, fruits, caramel and alcohol. Smells very hoppy up front, very impressive, potent and enjoyable.

Tastes as good as it smells with floral and piney hops, sweet malt that brings out the alcohol burn, then caramel, orange peel, cinnamon, rum, vanilla, bread, light spices and light smoked wood chips. The hops start the brew off, but the malt and oak barrel flavor trail off and take over for a nice dry finish. The flavor is a really nice mix and blends two styles quite well. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, with little to no carbonation. An overall feel like an IPA and barleywine mixed together, but it's very balanced with subtle waves of multiple tastes, and it goes down easy, especially considering the 10% ABV.

A great beer that is a very delicious hybrid. Another great beer from Dogfish Head, which I was looking forward to trying; I love the 90 Minute IPA and this met my expectations as a great beer. Another great beer experience crafted by Dogfish Head...go try this beer and enjoy it as well!

11/27/13-a very well aged bottle (3+ years at least) that looked great after the pour; 2 finger creamy beige head that faded very slowly and left incredible lacing coating the sides. The nose is very sweet, like a blend of dark fruit, syrup, rum/wine, vanilla, oaky, brown sugar, citrus hops a light booze; the sweetness jumps out, but is very complex and somehow soft and alluring. There are some many fruity notes that I won’t even attempt to describe the intricate aroma’s associated with this brew – get one, age it and experience it for yourself. Flavor is sweet and boozy, again with a massive dark fruit presence that includes cherry, red grapefruit, pear and rotting apple, syrup/molasses, rum/red wine like merlot, vanilla, oaky or smoky notes, brown sugar, citrus hops, floral hops, cinnamon and light booze like bourbon; the oak aging seems to have overtaken the hops from the DIPA blend, but the flavor is very smooth and complex, port-like in the way it forces you to sip and savor. This is mellow and hides the ABV wonderfully, with so much flavor that it’s almost like a wine at this point with mead like qualities in a good way. It’s very hard to accurately describe the flavor, but quite easy to state (again) that this is a very delicious hybrid and definitely worth seeking out

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Glad my buddy picked up a four-pack of this stuff for me to try, this stuff is great.

Appearance: Poured a deep hazy amber with a thin white head that disappeared leaving delicate lacing along the edges of my tulip.

Smell: Hints of bourbon, piney and earthy hops and citrus aromas compete for the spotlight in the nose. A little bit of oak comes into play, and this is just a lovely aroma.

Taste: Delicious. Sweetness from the malt and also citrus and great bitterness from the hops. Slight alcohol burn as this warms but the 10% is masked quite well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with solid carbonation and creaminess. A bit sweet but not overly so, the alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Goes down pretty smoothly.

Overall: I loved this IPA from Dogfish, as it is yet another strong effort from them. I can't wait to get my hands on another 4-pack of this stuff, definitely try it if you can!

outstanding beer. very tasty indeed.
pours a coppery orange color with a nice 2 inch head thats frothy and slightly creamy. The smell is oaky with piney/citrusy hops and sugary malts rounding it off
taste is sweet up front with hints of pear and apple and suagry goodness and it finishes a little bitter and dry from the cirtusy hops and leaves a oaky hint lingering.
medium to full body, creamy with good carbonation. very drinkable but watch out

Unfortunatly I only had the pleasure of sampling a 12 ounce botle of this noble creation. No fbottled on dat given, too bad cuz I'm sure this one will age nicely. Pours a nice soft dark honey tone, fairly clear with a tan head, leaves scattered aand fine lacing upon a gentle swirl. Nose of brandy, hops and dense peaty malts. Soft smooth, velvety mouthfeel. This is a fine fine brew, ready to consume today and i'm sure will only get better after a ffew years in a cool, dark place. Notes of vanilla, brandy, leather, rich malts, citric hops. Yeah baby this is the goods. Everything soft and smooth, no harshness or bitterness. Balanced and highly drinkable. Looking to get more of this stuff, alot more! Seek out and enjoy.

Had this on-tap at Frisco Grille in Columbia, MD.

The beer poured a deep, clear amber, with a thin almond head into a chalice. A big hop aroma - piney, citrusy, heavenly! An astonishingly clean and crisp hop flavor, with alcoholic esters and malt in the background, finishing off with a very smooth hop bitterness - a really fantastic I2PA. Nice thick mouthfeel, with heavy lacing all the way down the glass. All in all a great beer. It has everything you want in a big-time IPA: crisp hop aroma, smooth hop flavor and bitterness, alcohol and malt presence, and did I mention hops, hops, and more hops?

As anyone who knows me knows, I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with DFH's 90 Minute IPA. I was very pleased to finally find this on tap and dove right in.

A: The beer is a dark amber color. Extremely murky, the way I like my strong IPAs. It's got a big, pillowy off-white head that leaves big lacing. Pretty close to perfect.

S: I can definitely smell the 90 Minute IPA hiding down there. It's got that big citrus hop profile; grapefruity, almost pineappley. The hops share the stage with a lot of caramel and a light but wonderful oak smell.

T: Absolutely wonderful. It's clearly a DIPA at heart, but there's so much more. The hops are powerful, with their grapefruit and tropical citrus punch. There's a fair amount of pine. The pine melds deliciously with the barreled oak, creating a terrific earthy bitterness. There's a strong caramel counterbalance which results in an extremely well-balanced beer.

M: Dry and a little thick. Carbonation is medium. The booze is well-hidden. A little alcohol kick might make this one even better, actually.

D/Overall: Killer. Absolutely a world class beer as far as I'm concerned. Truly outstanding by nearly every metric. Amazing to look at, to smell, and to taste. I'll be seeking it out fanatically from now on.

One of my current favorites, and I am NOT a core Dogfish Head fan.

Head is tan, tight and thick. Lasts about 1/3 of the experience.

The scent is citrus, toward lemon. You can't miss the smell of moss and dark wet dirt, yah go dirt!

This beer just gets better as it disappears. As the temperature comes up a little, the taste of bourbon comes on and the hops get oily and find the back of my mouth. The balance of this beer is exceptional, and the alchohol is only noticeable at the start. It's sweet, smooth, piney, and just barely bitter enough for a strong DIPA. Kinda hard to find so hock your girlfriend's engagement ring and buy extra!

Pours a dark cherrywood into an oversized wineglass. Tastes a good pine and grapefruit mix of hops. Has a hint of carmel but is not a malty mess like i experience with typical double ipas. Finish is smooth and has a slight aftertaste i cannot identify. Very drinkable considering the high abv. It sneaks up on you but by the time i finish the glass i can feel it on my face. I very glad i tried this even at the price of $7 for a 10 oz glass. Best double ipa I have had.

12oz, date on bottle 10/14/10

A: pours a nice 2 finger head sticking around for 10% abv. the color is darker than most IPAs, a nice autumn leaf looking shade. the lacing is really impressive sticking to the sides of the snifter. really nice looking beer.

S:smell spects of vanilla, guess from being aged in oak. nice bready malts i'm picking up. not picking up hops really. picking up some masked underneath citrus but the oak seems to be in the forefront.

T: this is really nice. slight hops up front , leading to some malts , tailing off into a lingering vanilla taste. a very interesting IPA. I don't think i've ever had an IPA like this with hop characteristics but with a the malt oaky vanilla aspect to it as well. the alcohol seems hidden till the end with a little burn but the alcohol is inviting and i'm struck with the feeling this is a world class beer.

M: thicker than most, it has a chewy mouthfeel that lets know its there.

D: drinkable but at 10% this one will get you. this maybe my favorite IPA i've had to this point. i could have another 12oz after this but it does seem like a thicker beer than most IPAs. i'm really loving the vanilla notes. IPA people this is a must try. to say im enjoying this would be a understatement

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

This is my first try... but I'm fairly certain this is the best IPA I've ever had.

A- Rich, dark honey, but crystal clear. A playful foamy head with big light bubbles. Dynamic lacing. The carbonation floating from the bottom of the glass is plentiful and huge. It's a subverted snow globe.

S- Savory and sharp. A bit smokey, and a hint of aged cheese. Overall nothing overwhelming. Hoppy and fresh.

T- Subtler than expected. Very full bodied with a palate that is unusually balanced for an IPA... especially for one so strong. Very present but not all that sharp. Really... really... delicious. The oak is there, so is a rich mineral flavor. It leases you with a bit of malty sweetness on the center of the tongue, with dandelion bitters flanking it on either side. Awesome.

M- Full. Satisfying. Excellent carbonation. Surprisingly drinkable given how strong the brew is. I can have my beer and drink it too.

This is what an IPA should be. It's heavily hopped, and sufficiently bitter, but doesn't allow the hops to be the singular focus of the recipe... allowing it to develop and become a multidimensional brew. It seems (to me) that a lot of today's IPAs participate in a hops-arms-race... focused on maxing out their IBUs and blowing you away with piney citrusy hops. Other dogfish head ales are no exception. And that's all great sometimes. But for this beer the brewers were able to take a step back, find all the crucial, fundamental elements of what makes those two-dimensional IPAs so appealing, and add plenty of depth and complexity. You'll love it.

12oz. bottle poured into imperial pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, deep orange/amber with a whopping three-finger frothy head from a normal pour. The head stuck around for about 10 minutes before finally deflating to it's current state—a 1/4" creamy head that's holding up strong. Absurd amounts of sticky lacing down the glass. This is right up there with one of the prettiest brews I've seen.

S: Deeply floral hops with a touch of citrus, but closer to orange than grapefruit. A bit of wood-like Earthiness. Slight touches of grass and warm booze are faint, but linger beneath. Floral, rustic, gorgeous.

T: Everything meshes flawlessly into a truly unique flavor... It's taken me almost half a glass to pinpoint exactly what I'm tasting. Caramel-like sweetness from the malts, followed up by a plethora of citrus. Fresh-squeezed orange, light touches of lemon, a respectable hint of grapefruit. Towards the end, you get a BIG wave of floral hops, close to that of a flowery herbal tea. In the finish, especially as the beer warms up to room temperature, the oaken flavors really begin to shine through and add something almost unexplainable... This is a masterpiece and DFH have truly outdone themselves.

M: Definitely a full-body here. Substantially creamy with a mellow carbonation that lets this one glide along the palate and embrace your entire mouth in utter bliss. 10% ABV offers a bit of warmth to the back of the throat, as well as the face.

O: I'm running out of words to use here... Burton Baton has earned my first perfect 5 in the flavor category and is damn near a 5 in the overall category. I'm not sure what's holding it back, and maybe a 2nd exposure will earn it that coveted 5 in the overall category... Until then, just know that this is absolutely my favorite brew to date and I tip my hat to everyone down at DFH for brewing such an absolute delight of a beverage.

This is my favorite Imperial IPA. First off the aroma just punches you in the face with all the hops! It's very intense. The first few sips are quite intense, but it just got better as it warmed up.

It's fairly strong, which gives you a really warm feeling. Strongly recommended!

Bought a bottle of this at Brawleys Beverage.
It pours a ruby red body with a thin white head.
Aroma is full of spicey floral hops. The sweet hop smells dance over a faint essence of oak and caramel malt.
Taste is phenomenal! I love the smooth sweet caramel malt laced with oaky character and full of hop distinctions. Hop character is spicey, sharp and crisp. Some pineapple, cantalope and spicey flowers.
Body is thick and smooth.
Amazing all around beer, one of my favorites!

Picked this up by chance on a recent beer run to Wisconsin (DFH is not distributed in MN) and I am glad I did!

Poured into Snifter, has a beautiful hazy orange color with a small off white head. Small head is understandable due to the high ABV. Very nice lacing with a wonderful floral citric aroma.

Taste is very balanced, has a tiny bit of a shallow mouthfeel but very tasty. Definitely a very good IPA, I wish I would've picked up more than a 4 pack.

Poured into a perfect pint glass. Cloudy ruby color.Thick lacing from the 1" head.
Smell- Light pine light citrus with a touch of malt, can't smell the 10% alchol. If a beer can smell smooth and rich I think this does.
Taste ... is similar to the 90 minute ipa but with a bit more rich malty flavor, almost a sweetness ...almost a bitterness, but very smooth!! An exceptional complex flavor! This is one of the best IPA's I tasted!Did I mention the thick lacing?
Mouthfeel is warm and hoppy very full! Swish it around and it's rich and hoppy and warm, quite tastY!!
Drinkable, very drinkable! This is the way you want to finish an evening!

A- Made a strong pour into a English Pint glass. Got a good 3 finger head on it. Foamy. Something like an orange amber color. A bit hazy. A ton of bubbles flying up the side of the glass. Some nice lacing.

S- Huge hoppy aroma. A citrus aroma that has a sourness to it. Kind of like a grapefruit. Sprinkle some sugar on it and you are set. Just kidding. Amazing smell.

T- Wow. I really don't know where to start with this one. There's not a super huge bite from the hops. Incredibly smooth. You really get that oak flavor coming through. It gives it a smokey kind of flavor. Super complex.

M- this one has a syrupy feel to it that makes it super smooth on the palate. Makes this one a dangerous beer since it is 10%. You have to force yourself to take it slow.

O- This has to be one of the best I have had so far. Absolutely amazing beer. Easy drinking, great complexity of flavor. Fantastic.

Bottled 12/29/05…which means this might be the freshest beer we’ve ever gotten in Muncie.

Burton Baton evacuates its bottle an orangey copper with exceptional clarity. No bottle conditioning? Odd for a DFH beer, especially one that ‘ages with the best of ‘em’.

The nose reminds me of a softer-edged 90 minute. The oak coaxes a smoother, vanilla edge to the aromas. Gooey candy is also forefront: gumballs and cotton candy. Pillowy malt consistency – well synergized malt hop interplay. Buttery.

Perusing some reviews, I noticed that people faulted this beer for its lack of harsh hop-forward bitterness. I think this is the beer’s finest asset: balance. Hops are here and forefront, but not with bitterness but instead flavor.

The first sip of this beer floods the mouthfeel with strong flavors reminiscent of cherries…always a great hop flavor to bask in, and one I find in top-shelf I2pa’s. Red wine subtleties. Intense harshness of bitterness muted and rounded, presumably by the extended oak-aging. Some of the classically DFH nutrisweet flavors. Straight from heaven hop-burps. Oddly, seems to have more in common taste-wise with 60 minute than 90 minute.

Immaculate mouthfeel, and wickedly drinkable.

All in all, this beer rides the fine line between balls-out hop flavor and mellow, age-wizened restrained. It’s really the best of both worlds…and one that could totally be an introductory beer for those hop-fearing souls.

I only had a chance to get a small sample of Burton Baton to make notes off of. I am not sure when or if I am going to get to try this again so I am going to put my notes record in a review. My friend who regularly visits DFH said they already quit selling this year batch having put it back to the cellar as vintage. So until next year, if someone can get there in time, this will have to do.

I know this is a mix of Oak aged Old Ale and the ever so sweet 90 min IPA. I got out of this beer a remarkably sweet and smooth caramel and toasted malty characteristic. A bit of oak and cinnamon sugar as well. This is definitely a sweet-tooth's heaven. For a DIPA it is a very malty brew, and super smooth.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

The smell is great, wow so nice. Oaked ale malty and a bit of hops.

The taste follows a great blend of oaked ales. Smoky oak, bourbon, vanilla notes, Just great.

The mouthfeel is good, very good, This beer is nice to drink but i sip it to make it last.

Pours a deep dark amber color with 1 finger head that retains for most of the beer. Smell is earthy wood then hops and sweet malts at the end. The taste is extremely complex with wood and hints of vanilla then the hops then the wood again. The mouthfeel is crisp and creamy much like an IPA. At 10% they pack a much meaner punch then the close 90 minute IPA. You can tell a difference in the effect but the effect is great. Again and again Dogfish Head does it again. Can't wait for that Chocolate beer soon.
