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!

Absolutely a delicious beer. High alcohol content does not overpower the flavors of hops and malts - but for me - mixes well compared to other 10%-ers. The beer pours a beautiful caramel color with a lightly tanned head, thick and puffy. A nice smell of malt that I found very appealing, with mouthfeel that was smooth and easy on the tongue. Overall, it was the best 10%-er I've had to date and would like very much to partake of more.
