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!

Poured from a 12oz bottle, bottled 9-02-13.

A dark honey/amber body, generous head, excellent retention sitting at a strong 3 fingers with drooping lacing all over. Aroma of strong wood, pine, all alcohol infused. Flavor is heavy on the pine, some sugar making it sweet but smooth. Drinks remarkably well despite the high ABV.
