Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 12-08-2004

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!

A - poured into a tulip glass a rosy copper color with a thin head. Medium bubbles and little lacing on the glass.

S - slightly spicy with floral and citrus notes.

T - sweet to start, finishing malty then back to sweet with an aftertaste reminiscent of barleywine. Pretty well balanced but a bit sweet and in my opinion could be more bitter.

M - smooth and pleasing; lightly carbonated

O - good beer by a great brewery but not overly exciting. I would definitely recommend to friends with a taste for barleywine. I think the hoppiness of an IPA gets lost a little though.

A: Amber/orange or red, translucent with a white head.

S: Nose is nectary with notes of dark fruit, orange, citrus peel, oak, caramel and a touch of vanilla.

T: Citrus, orange, mango, delicious hop character, oak, vanilla and caramel. Delicious.

M: Full bodied, less than smooth, but smooth enough, especially for an IPA.

O: Really really really really good. Definitely worth a try.
