BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a large white head that retains well, and a few floaties. Smells of oak, hops, and malt. Tastes of oak, hops, sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, light booze, and some sweet fruits. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall a very tasty barrel aged IPA.

Pours a hazy, medium amber producing a shy 2 fingers of off-white, frothy, somewhat lasting head that leaves only a few motes & webs of lace. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, fruity, rich & oaky with floral, grapefruit, pine & boozy alcohol. Taste is rich oaky, roast, fruity, burnt caramel malt fronted with toffee, earth, floral, grapefruit, pine & alcohol predominating after the mid-sip to finish. Aftertaste is a balanced malt/hoppy bittersweet that gravitates toward unbalanced bitterness & slight astringency. Alcohol is prominent in both nose & mouth. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with moderate, carbonation, dry but sweet at the same time, with a drawing nature on the front half of the tongue. Very unusual. I fill that this is it's appeal. One that certainly lives up to their motto "Off-centered ales for off-centered people".

First had poured from 12-oz. bottle, gift from a friend, into tulip pint. English malt and huge, bitter and witheringly dry hops. What an English DIPA ought to be. In an ideal world, whenever you walk into an English pub and order "a pint," this is what you would get.

Amazing. Picture Dogfish Head 90 resting on oak with a harder water profile. Similar aroma, color and mouthfeel as DFH 90 but with very a subtle oak flavor. DFH 90 is my favorite accessible local beer but Burton Baton will be my go-to as long as it is available.

Another good brew from Dogfish! Enjoying this Brewery since 1998! It doesn't knock my socks off like Pliny the Elder, but it is really a good brew. Sit down with this one on a cold winter night!
