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 - 4- I don't really knock beers for taste ever. It's a nice caramel amber color with a thin film of white bubbles that leaves nice lacing.
S - 4.25 - bourbon, vanilla, caramel, like a nice old ale. Maybe some breadiness in there too. Pretty damn good so far.
T - 4.25 - Nice light bourbon taste with vanilla, caramel, bready malts. It's really less of a double IPA and more an old ale/barelywine in my opinion. There's some light citrusy hops in there too, but very balanced.
M - 4.25 - Medium mouthfeel. alc is present but appropriate. Aftertaste is boozey bourbon and vanilla. Some hops in there too. Like a good barleywine.
O - 4.25 - I like it. It's a solid beer. For the price? I'd probably spring for Third Coast Old Ale by Bell's first, or Double DBA if I had the money laying around and could find it. This one's an interesting take and it's interesting the way it's made.
