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!

70 IBU

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Landed in VT for the first time on Friday. bottled on 3/30/09. holy fresh! Poured into my trusty DFH snifter.

whatever head is there, diminished before i could note it. some swirling brings a little back. red ruby color, not much carbonation at all. striking clarity.

smell is fresh and bright. cocoa powder, cherries, intense alcohol astrigency on the back of the throat.

taste is loud and squirely. cherry and vanilla comes thru but with this much heat, it comes across as medicine. hop bitterness comes thru at the end.

mouthfeel is decent until the cough syrup shows up at the end.

drinkable? not now, but give this one some time and it should be. ill revisit this beer in time, and expect alot more then. while its advertised as an imperial ipa, its actually part old ale. that part of the beer is whats ruining it now, and will improve with age. 5 days in the bottle is not enough time for this beer to get ready.

Picked this one up at a Whole Foods in Louisville, if I remember properly, and 'aged' it several months in the beer cupboard. Pours a nice brown/amber and cloudy, with an average head. A kind of malty/fruity nose. Initial taste is strong and alcoholic (it's 10% ABV), with a complex, bourboney (from the oak barrels it's aged in) and kinda sweet taste that rolls on the tongue and leaves an almost sour aftertaste. This is most definitely one to savor and sip/take in slowly. Very satisfying and strong ale, but perhaps a tad strong for beginners.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into my nonic pint glass. Appears a cloudy golden amber color with about two fingers of off white head. The oak aging comes through in the aroma right away. Vanilla and citrus hops, pineapple, caramel, and oak dominate the flavor. Really nice. I would say this is a full bodied beer with medium carbonation. Spicy alcohol sneaks in to tingle the back of the throat in the finish. A wonderful "sipping" beer.

A: Great copper color. Nice finger and a half head. Great lacing.

N: Nice blast of hops with vanilla/American oak in the background.

P: Good citrus tropical fruit notes. Some bitterness but not too much. the oak nicely cuts the hops. very smooth.

Another winner from DFH.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

First taste of this tonight. 12oz bottle served in a pilsner glass.

Appearance wasn't too unique, reddish-amber with a small foamy head that dwindled down to fine lace after a couple minutes.

Smell: very fruity, malty. Was very surprised by this. I was expecting a hop bomb given the "Imperial IPA" title. I could smell some woodiness, but if I didn't know it was oak, probably wouldn't have placed it. Lots of fruit and floral notes. Can't emphasize enough how sweet the beer smelled, almost like a Belgian something or other, not at all like an IPA.

Taste: could taste the woodiness at first few sips, then this characteristic seemed to dissipate as my tastebuds acclimated to the beer. Was surprisingly sweet and fruity. I initially liked it. A lot. Not too oaky. My buddy thought it was too fruity for an IIPA.

After a few sips, we decided that it was cloyingly and over-the-top sweet. However, it's late winter and quite cold out; we decided that this beer ice-cold on a hot and humid deck in mid-summer very well might kick ass. But today, we decided it was too sweet. Fruitiness: citrusy, but hard to tell if it's acid like grapefruit or sweet like an orange. Really needed more hops to counter this, or at least some tart citrus to cut the sweetness.

Mouthfeel: pretty smooth. Not over carbonated.

Drinkability: I had little difficulty finishing my share. A whole bottle might have made me crave some really salty potato chips or something, as it was getting pretty sweet. I definitely would not have finished the 12-oz bottle.

I initially liked the beer. I may have been influenced by the description on the label and really wanting to like it, as I like most DFH beers. But the more I drank, the more I was seeking hops and something to cut the malty, fruity sweetness. Won't buy it again.

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

A: Poured a murky amber with very little head.

S: For DIPA it sure was hidden behind nice hints of oak and vanilla flavors. There was a little hop presence but not what you'd expect.

T: Again, not alot of hops present but it doesn't matter really, because the oak and sweet malts work very well together. The vanilla was in there but not as much as I picked it up on the nose.

M: Smooth and easy to drink. No sandpaper like feeling across the tongue like some DIPA's.

D: At 10% it's tough to commit to many of these, but if you can find this bottled it's a must try. I hope to find a few more.

T - Starts with a fruity malt backbone then the hops and alcohol come through

M - This beer has a full body with light carbonation to it

D - Definitely a beer that takes some time to drink a good sipping beer to relax with at the end of the day

Big thanks to Brooha for including this as an extra in a recent trade. Thank you!!

Pours a wonderful bright amber color that has excellent clarity. Not much of a head at all... Just a thin wisp of foam that runs the border between the edge of the beer and the glass. NO real lacing and a touch of visible carbonation

Aroma is of deep wood and malts with some alcohol present. Not a great deal of hop presence.

Wow... really more like a barleywine. The bottle says bottles in 2008 F. I wonder if the F is February, which would make this a year old. Does not taste bad at all, in fact, it's really nice. I just see no real hop presence and would never pick this as a DPA. Wonderfully deep flavor that has many layers. Deep malts, almonds, coconut, a blast of ripe fruit and then a touch of alcohol. As you swallow you get some more fruits coming through and then you can sense some of the wood again. You do get that overe ripe pineapple flavor that I see in a lot of DPA's Wow, a fun beer.

Just shy of syrup like, but still fairly full bodied. Very light carbonation.

Actually quite drinkable for a 10% abv. You can sense the alcohol, but it does not get in the way.

Really enjoyable. I want to try one I know is fresh to see if there is a difference.

It looks like a bad-ass beer. Dark brown like a bronze medal or something. Perhaps the best non-brew physical thing I can compare it to is a hot-tanned female Brazilian body...it's appealing like that, anyway. The head might be a little lacking, but what's there lingers for the sitting's duration. The thin layer of foam left atop this beer leaves it a little enigmatic to me...kinda like the mix of young and old mentioned on the bottle. Who would've thought this would work so well?

Smells delicious. Considering my earlier hot body type imagery, the aroma is decidedly more masculine. It is a delicious--even yummy--concoction. I have to sip and taste it to figure out why I shouldn't give it a perfect score. My reason--it's too simple. It's just a delicious DIPA bolstered by oak. That's what you have here. It reminds me of a wine in the way it improves as it seems to breathe. Every sip's worth savoring. Though I'm no certified expert on the nuances of beer, I'm confident that's not what's intended here. Without anything overly, outwardly unique, the key here is that the beer is simply delicious. Hoppy yumminess with a taste of the perfect beverage medium--oak. The mouthfeel is like the rest--wow good without complexity. I really just hold each sip and...can't really explain why it's just so good--just a DIPA with oak. Still, it seems better than any other I've had.

I'd give it a 5 for drinkability, but I will pass on another one for now. It's just too simple.

Pours hazy dark orange with a small off white head.

Aroma has a notable alcohol presence, vanilla and oak, sweet maple sugar, hint of spicy fruit.

Taste begins with a massive sweet malt presence, noticeable spicy alcohol, and a spicy, piney hoppy undertone that reveals itself somewhat gradually. Finish is an understated hoppy bitterness, definitely smoothed out by the vanilla and oak smoothness. Definitely seems to be a big IPA crossed with a sweeter barleywine more than a standard double IPA, but whatever it is, I'd like another please. Preferably with another couple of years on it though, a little too much alcohol presence is the only fault I'd lay on this one. Delicious

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The skin of pomegranate fruit underlined by flashes of golden brass. Dust-like particles of yeast speckle the appearance but don't tarnish complexion or clarity. The beer is quite lucent, it absorbs the light and subsequently emits bright, incandescent tones. An erratic, sketch like head brushes parts of the surface and splatters eccentric patterns of lace.

This smells more like an American barleywine than American DIPA. Either way, both styles share a lot in common - notably a stupendous amount of hops. This seeps of pine and tropical fruits. It is sweet, sappy, and succulent. A dab of caramel malt, bready crackers, and vanilla-laden oak make minor impressions too. Overall, this is about as rich as beer can get!

Toasted bread smeared in honey and notes of melon, mango, cantaloupe, and grapefruit lead way as the most forward flavours - it kind of sounds like a healthy breakfast, no? Pine drenched hop cones, crisp bread crusts, butterscotch pudding, toffee wafers, a shot of Madagascar vanilla as well as a whole cast of tropically citric fruits also find place in the taste.

The mouthfeel is unexpectedly smooth. I had a couple of these aging in the cellar but with a lack of alcohol presence and an already velvety smooth texture, I doubt letting them sit will do any good. For a beer of 10% this allows some pretty hefty sized sips, nay, gulps actually. Maybe it's the blending or the oak aging, or some combination of the two, but this is untypically smooth of a high-gravity, heavily hopped American ale.

Although listed on BA as a DIPA it's actually (in my opinion) much more similar to an English Strong Ale. Speaking of which, for those who don't know, this is a 50/50 blend of oak-aged English Strong Ale and the brewery's flagship 90 Minute IPA. The blend uses just Glacier and Warrior, so I suppose it's whatever is in the 90 Minute that imparts so much of the passionfruit, melon, and cantaloupe flavour.

When I first had this beer I thought it was something contemplative, elegant, and complex. Tasting it now, nearly two years later, I don't find it nearly as intricate but still every bit as good as I remember. I'll have to yank those other bottles from the cellar because I don't think a 10% beer is capable of being any more quaffable than this is now.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle...Silky, heavy mouthfeel. Oak and hops dominate this brew, but that no complaint, as the two balance each other very well. Also hints of caramel, honey, and floral notes. A very special IPA. This is on of my favorite Dogfish beers and always a treat when I get to have it

Thanks to vwcraig for this bottle.

A: The DIPA is a ruddy amber color, showing off a bright orange-red shine out of the hazy depths. Not much head here, in fact it barely looks carbonated.

S: The ale is a barleywine-like melange of full hops and bready grains. Significant amounts of citrus fruit and boozy warmth shine through.

T: The barrel aging is apparent from the first sip, adding a depth to the ale that softens the hop/malt assault. Fruit flavors, sweet and citrus (mango, pineapple, etc.) cut through the ale and deliver a nice mid-sip break. Peppery flavors flourish as well. Caramel malts are concentrated but paired back by the oak. That same oak manifests itself in the finish, resulting in a nightcap beer with licquer-like qualities.

M: The mouthfeel is quite tame with a cognac/brandy-like finish without the boozy burn.

D: One bottle at a time, his one took me several hours to get through.

Thanks to kplynch for the hookup on this beer!

A - Poured into a New Belgium globe the beer is a medium copper/amber color with some yellow highlights. A Thin off-white head formed but dissipated with only a small amount remaining. Unimpressive lacing.

S - Floral and fruity hops combine with a vanilla-oak character. Alcohol is certainly present and noticeable and a tad spicy. Orange peel, light mango, slightly fruit loops-y. Overall a very impressive array of aromas.

T - Wood flavors are very apparently and upfront with a hints of vanilla and caramel. Bitterness is moderately-high and lingers on into a medium finish. Some floral hop flavor can be detected but not at the appropriate level of intensity for an IIPA. Malt is mostly clean though a slight bready presence is detectable.

M - Medium bodied, medium level of carbonation. Very smooth.

D - For it's strength, I'm impressed at how easy this is to drink. The wood marries nicely with the hops, almost unexpectedly so. This is a rule-breaking beer and oak or wood aging is typically not appropriate in this style of beer. Never the less, Sam and the gang knew what they were doing and the vanilla-like flavors carry well with the floral hops. 1 Bottle is sufficient for me but I'm still giving a favorable score here.

Wow. Amazing.

A: Foggy amber with hints of yellow green and a minimal head. Lacing is almost non-existent but no worries shes a beauty, would it make a difference in the bed if your wife had stockings on? Probably not. Especially if she was gorgeous.

S: Ohh yeeeaaa.... Malt and hops immediately all masked by a pristine campfire aroma. Almost as if you were just putting the fire out with the water from the nearby spout. Did I mention malt and hops? You know, real malt and hops.

T: Yes! If you could imagine taking DFHs 90 Minute IPA and aging it to perfection on a cask of luxurious burnt oak giving you any sort of excitement, this is exactly that. Fruity caramel goodness, hops and wood, nothing more, nothing less, straight up, but seems to be far more complex. A pinch of yeast but all things compliment each other working together to please my needs.

M: Creamy, thick, mellow and smooth with just a bite or maybe a nibble in that case of bitterness to round things off. Carbonation is perfect and almost unnoticeable which means its substantial, not annoying. Slowly moves down the throat and lingers a bit, but lingers like a good dog.

D: I have to slow down, its incredible how easy you can believe this is a 6% beer. Caught up very quickly, the only reason its a 4.5 is because before too long I would be forced to stop drinking it. GREAT

Overall: If you are into wood aged beers, love IPAs, this is the beer for you. Exactly what I expected, perfect. Also, if you have had DFHs 90 Minute IPA, imagine that with a complimenting wood swing, just glorious. Grab a four and make your palate happy!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A deep leathery orange color that is mostly cleared with some yellow highlights on the edges. There is a thin beige head that starts out looking good but dissipates too fast for my taste. This one initially scans ok but is not much of a looker after about 1 minute in the glass.

Smell is pretty poor for an Imperial IPA. Sure there is some hops present but they aren't bold as one would expect in this style. In fact there is a dominating grain smell rather then hop. Not to bad but unfortunately not right for the style.

Taste is a lot like the nose. There is a dominating malt profile that eclipses anything that resembles a hop. Sweet and slightly syrupy Burton Baton finishes with a light bitterness. There is some citrus in there paired with a moderate earthiness but nothing bold or decisive.

A surprisingly lame offering from DFH. I was expecting something better then a 90 min and all I got was mediocre. There is nothing big about this beer except the firm sweet malts up front and the ABV glow. I will pencil Burton Baton down as a novelty act and one not to waste my money on again.

This is a very impressive beer. If you are not a serious hopehead, though, you probably will not enjoy it.

2007 version, with a year in the beer fridge.

Pours a deep opaque amber with 1/2 inch head, retaining the head fairly well. Minimal lacing.
Aroma is very powerful. The oakiness is there, but way overpowered by the hops and the alcohol in this one. Hits the mouth with a lot of body, but finishes fiery - a combination of the hops and the strength of this beer.

The label invokes you to share this one - but I'll keep this one all to myself.

Nose is hoppy as well as the first sip. Not picking up any oak from nose or taste. 10 percent wow alcohol burn and a little on the bitter side. I expected this to be a little smoother but its just shy of having a bite to it.Not one of my favs by a long shot.If youre a hop head go for if not steer clear.

2008 version- this bottle had more than 1/2 a year on it so it's time for a review

bottle poured into a dogfish pint glass.

A- coming out of the bottle, burton baton pours a reddish amber color with a 1 finger head that comes and goes. Not very cloudy as i could see through the glass but traces of sediment can be seen. the head retention is great and thin sheets of lace cover the glass after drinking. This beer looks thick.

s- yikes, sweet malts and piney smelling hops come through and i get a hint of the oak coming from the wood. BB smells very sweet with a bit of vanilla and maple. overall a nice floral smell comes from the glass. very nice!

T- BB is very SWEET! i get some vanilla, maple syrup and toffee while the hops take a backseat but are still pretty noticable. the oak comes through at the end and there is a slight bit of alcohol creeping through.

M- BB is a little thick and sticky and the taste stays with you for a bit after sipping, with that said this DIPA goes down with ease. a medium body and nice carbonation. a slight difference from regular 90 minute.

D- at 10% BB doesent mess around but it remains a very drinkable ale. could probably toss back a few of these in a night but i would pay for it in the morning. This is a very interesting take on a DIPA and not a hopbomb like many other's. i'll be coming back to this one from time to time.

good job DFH.

2008 Release. In a 12 oz. brown bottle.

Pours a bright ruby red, extra bright amber when held up to the light, thin off-white head, small patches of lacing.

Aroma of caramel malts, dark fruit, grassy/herbal/citrus hops. Some alcohol esters and a hint of that sugary sweet/model glue smell like 120 has.

Extremely thick, Full bodied with a slick texture, abv tingles my mouth

Very sweet, big caramel, toffee, and dark fruit (plum comes to mind)

Juicy hop flavor with an earthy hop resin bitterness than digs in to the palate. Finishes with a nice oak/alcohol dryness.

This beer is very juicy, flavorful, and BIG! If I didn't know better I would think that this beer is more of a strong ale/barley wine than a double IPA.

10% ABV feels great, really good beer!

Cheers!

A - Poured a nice golden amber color, with good carbonation, and a nice head. Was a slightly cloudy since some yeast made it into the glass. Carbonation died down rather quickly like a British ale, and the head dropped to about a finger high with a good amount sticking to the glass.

S - Had a great malty smell with a hint of spicy hot aroma, kind of surprised at how little hops I smelled. Smelled kind of like a barely wine.

T - Great malt backbone with a nice hop undertone. Would not normally thing of an Imperial IPA as having a hop UNDERtone, but this one does. This is not really a bad thing, the IBUs are there but the awesome malt flavor balances it out very well. This seems to be a trait of a lot of Dogfish Head beer, awesome balance not hop overkill.

M - Again, reminded me of a barley wine. This is definitely a high OG beer that was not fermented dry at all. In a beer with this much character the slightly syrupy mouthfeel was spot on.

D - I thought this was a great beer to sit down with an enjoy one. I could see myself having another simply because it is very well balanced, but nothing close to a session beer.

Overall, this was another really good Dogfish Head beer. I have not been disappointed with any of their beers that I have had.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A - Murky amber with a nice slightly off-white head.

S - Some spicy/citrus hops and much biscuit/caramel malt

T - Sweet. Very, very sweet. A little hops in the aftertaste, but I never thought you could cover up 80 IBU so effectively! Maybe my sweet tastebuds are more sensitive, but I find this cloying.

M - Think & syrupy, reminds me of an American barleywine. Nice low carbonation.

D - Clearly not a session beer, again I found this cloyingly sweet.

Overall, I have to say I was disappointed with this beer, I think if it were less sweet, it might be quite interesting. I am laying one bottle down, maybe it will mellow.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber, not much to the off-white head. Aroma is sweet, slight citrus, taste is sweet and sticky, overall, a little too sweet for me. Complex, but the sweetness is overwelming. I wonder if this would be better with a little age on it.

How do you Burtonize your water? Pours a semi-hazy reddish amber color with some brown highlights. A good head with decent retention and lacing throughout.

The nose has a nice complexity and a nice malt base. To start there is a sweet caramel note with some hints of sugar notes. Good complexity but a bit sweet. Some nice woody notes come out as well. The hops are not over the top but are still noticeable. A good blend of citrus, pine and floral notes. Some minor yeast notes and big alcohol note though limited fusel.

The taste has more of an American barleywine thing going on. The malt is similar nose with a sweet caramel note. Not as complex as the nose though. Some brown sugar and honey notes. A bit sweet overall. The hops come out nicely with a more herbal/floral taste mixed with a piney and some English hop notes with more of a earthy tinge. The yeast comes out but still really clean considering the alcohol. Some pepper notes and a touch of diacetyl but not overwhelming.

The body is big. There is some alcohol heat but note overwhelming. Carbonation is low but ok. Overall I would call this a barleywine over a double IPA, but ok.

Burton Baton - my last bottle in the cellar. Bottle has 01/07 age on it.

A- pours a dark amber with 1 inch head that disappears.

S- wow! the aromas started after I popped the cap on this one. I can smell it sitting next to me. Smell has the very similar sweet DFH over malted smell that most of their beers have. Brown sugar, sweet raisons

T- very sweet initially but the hops find their way soon. alc is pretty mellow after a year of laying down in the cellar.

M- pretty good balance of carbonation still there after a year.

D- going down really well. I think after one like most DFH high gravity, the crazy sweetness might be too much. Certainly will get more of this to age come 09
