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!

Always surprises me how much I like this one. It's like a barleywine with enough bitters to balance the syrup and booze. Ages well, drinks great while fresh.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with with white head. Aroma of flora, hops and yeast. Taste of vanilla, hops, yeast and a sweetness. Bitter aftertaste. A good beer

I like this one. It's right there with 90 minute. I get a little less alcohol than I do with 90 minute which is odd since it's higher in %ABV. Being on the west coast it seems everytime I get a Dogfish Head brew it's at least a couple months old. I'd love to try both this and 90 minute fresh, but even at a couple months the hops and oak really shine through in this one. A really good beer. You just can't go wrong with Dogfish Head!!

DFH's most underrated beer. A great DIPA that knocks you with big hop and grapefruit.
