Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

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!

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

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter-type glass.

Appearance: Clear, light red amber color. Thin off-white head with some lacing. Nothing too spectacular.

Smell: Strong maltiness with a fruity background - dates or raisins. A note of spicy hoppiness, too.

Taste: Hop wallop up front followed by a strong vanilla sweetness. There is a long-lasting sweet aftertaste that I did not really care for. Oak background with a little strawberry.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied as expected with good carbonation.

Drinkability: Not bad, but sweet aftertaste will probably hinder some drinkers.

12oz bottle poured into an oversized wine glass. Bottled on 1/08/2007. Consumed on 2/19/2007.

A - Pours gorgeous translucent copper color with a medium caramel colored head. Mild carbonation. True to the style, with good consistancy throughout.

S - Very pronouned hops - smelling the beer actually tickled the inside of my nose. Almost a new car smell coming through. Sweetness comes through on subsequent whiffs.

T - Caramel is the big flavor here. Extremely sweet, not as hoppy as I usually think of IPAs being (I suppose that comes from the oak aging process). Alcohol is very present as well. I like this beer, though I am confused by its classification. This bottle was low in carbonation as well as bitterness. As I continue to spend time with the beer, I find it definetely to be too sweet for me. An interesting beer though, certainly complex, which I have tried to reflect in my numerical score.

MF - Very thin, does not go down easy.

D - Definetely a sipping beer. I imagine even someone who is a big fan of this beer won't want more than one in a sitting.

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

Appearance: poured a clear , copper-orange , with a half-inch of solid offwhite foam.

Smell: lots of floral and pungent hop scent , a fair dose of malt , and a nice and noticeable backing of vanilla. Also just a hint of alcohol.

Taste: Perfect balance! The big malt presence and heavy hops are melded together so well. First to hit my taste buds is a sweet malty character accented by some vanilla , some fruityness , then the oily and floral hops show their force , followed by a flash of warming alcohol. The oak ageing has definatly left a mark on the flavor of this DIPA blend. Nice hints of the oak and vanilla , and a bit of bourbon.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied , slightly viscous

Drinkability: Exellent flavors and balance make this a highly drinkable brew for me. Truly unique. Very good buy for the price. Delicious!

Bottled on: 01.08.07

Pours an orangish amber color with a thin white head with good retention that sticks all over the sides of the glass. The aroma is malt, a floral sweetness, bubblegum, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is creamy with a nice maltiness in the beginning that is followed with a flowery and fruitiness with the hops rounding out the finish and some warming from the alcohol. You can also pick up on the influences from the oak as well in the taste. Overall, this is another solid offering from DFH. Not something I would drink every night, but it certainly is interesting enough to revisit again. Recommended.

A- Thin off white head on a crystal clear deep amber/copper body.
S- Sweet, wood, light grass and citrus hops, malt body, and a weird kind of floral/tree/grass aroma. Not the big huge hop aroma I was expecting.
T- Really sweet caramel malts come through pretty big. Followed by that is a big wood flavor. The wood comes through very strong in this. You can taste the alcohol and you get a big warming in back of throat from it also. Some citrus and grass/floral hops come through nicely too. They are slamming in your face, they are more blended in with everything else. A pretty big bitterness cuts through most of the flavors (with a delicate touch though) and it is left lingering on the tongue along with some wood flavor and sweet caramel.
M- Full body with low carbonation, also kind of sticky/chewy.
D- It is good but it is not a hop assault I was expecting. It is well balanced and almost more on the side of an American barleywine. It is a sipper but in my eyes that is never a bad thing.

Nice coloration. Dark orange and ruby colors. Not much head to speak of and very little lace. It's still a nice beer to look at based on it's coloration alone.
I could sit and smell this beer all night. Rose petals, mangos. Lot's of floral and tropical aromas(not citrus though). They should make this into a perfume.
This is not the beer that I've come to expect as a double IPA. It's doesn't have the over the top citrus and pine flavors typical of the style. With that said it's a very good beer that exemplifies the uniques of Dogfish Head. This is not a hop bomb, but is a very flavorful and complex beer. Brown sugar, vanilla, and biscuity flavors lead to a very pleasant fruity finish. Mango.
Very dry in the aftertaste and smooth in the mouth.
This is a nice once in a while sipper but not a beer that I'd drink often. Even though it's not an everyday beer, I'd still say it's a must try.

Serving : 12oz bottle

A 10%abv barrel aged DIPA from Dogfish head, how could I resist?

Great looks sporting beige red-tinted froth measuring a finger thick that slowly settles atop a translucent reddish amber body alive with quickly flowing streams of fine carbonation.

Intensely sweet aromas of marschino cherries, fruit syrup, floral hops and butterscotch mingle on the nose with hop bitters, hints of dark brown sugar and woody bourbon barrels.

With flavors reminscent of a sweet aged barleywine, this delivers tons of sweet syrupy fruit with a dash of hop bitters on the entry slowly evolving into a exquisitely creamy and cloyingly sweet, floral mid palate. Wood aged characteristics take hold on a bold, tight finish revealing tart fruit, butterscotch and tasty dry wood flavors. What an odd twist on a DIPA, my hopes for abundant hops were dashed with volumous sweet syrupy hop infused fruit and bourbon soaked wood. Wrapped up somewhere inside all the sweet fruit is a load of undetectable alcohol that slides over my palate without leaving a single trace.

Closer to a sweet cordial than an oak aged ipa, this is quite viscious, syrupy and overpowering with dulled down drinkability. Sipping is the best method to enjoy this sweet treat.

Dogfish head has done it again by creating a new and interesting concotion that totally dashes my concept of what a DIPA can be.
What will the awesome brewing talent at DFH come up with next?

A - this DIPA pours a transparent burnt sienna color with a full finger of light tan head held aloft by a vast amount of swift carbonation

S - nice mellow aroma, hoppy, but not overly hoppy; a sweet caramel/toffee/vanilla note to it, with a citrus grassy aroma complimenting it nicely

T - oh man, this could get one in trouble, devilishly smooth and sweet, sweet syrup without the maple, a nice vanilla bean/toffee type sweetness to it that makes you beg for another sip, a masterful job of hiding a high ABV in the taste

M&D - a silky smooth mouthcoat that really rolls down your throat, warming as it goes, the higher ABV is the only drawback to the drinkability, with a flavor like this and an ABV that high you can really get in over your head quick with this one, DFH really has mastered their craft

as if i didnt feel this way before, but i would try anything this brewery puts out

12 oz bottle into an oversized wine glass.

Pours an appealing golden-copper color with a thick light tan head. Good lacing and an amazing retention, as at least half a centimeter of foam stays on top throughout the course. Aroma is a bit barleywine-esque at first. There are floral and grapefruit notes, as well as caramel and mash whiskey scents.

Taste is definately sweet, with citrus and velvety malts bursting through. Strong alcohol notes as well. Only a slight amount of hop action here, but it's a nice surprise. Mouthfeel is lush and juicy, amost "starburst" in its texture. Very smooth across the palate with a sweet aftertaste. Overall this beer is complex and tasty, but the strong alcohol content paired with a powerful sweetness make it tough to imagine having more than one in a single sitting (not to mention the price!).

Poured a deep ruby red amber with a small head, a little lace that faded into a nice coating with eddys and swirls embedded in the bubbly lace, lingered to the last drop. Smell was sweet, very very sweet. Candy apple, caramle, cherry were all over this and predominated. Slight hop back detected and a tiny bit of alcohol. Did I say sweet!

The taste followed the same route with the huge candy sweetness predominating some other hints of apple, cherries, grapes. Some alcohol, but it is mostly balanced by the rebost flavors. Goes down very smooth, light and crisp. Tingles and warms as it goes. Carbonation is not overally done though. Overall this is a very nice brew, a little too sweet to have more then one or two, but is perfect as a sipper after dinner. Really a good sweet dessert, very nicely done, and at 10%abv, should be a nice sipper anyway!

Poured into a Duvel glass, copper color with smallish head and some lacing on the glass. Smell is more of liquor and vanilla and less of the citric hops of the DFH90. Some vanilla in the flavor and the hops are not as upfront, but still there. Sweeter than the 90 minute and more mellow for sure. I'll cellar a couple of these to see what happens to them. This beer is a definite treat, different enough from the other DIPA's one that I will make a point to revisit every year.

DFH seem to be a brewery that takes their ipas damn seriously. I have had the 60,90, and 120, but now Burton Baton comes along. Poured from the bottle (with a really cool looking label) into a cisco brewery pint glass a nice enough looking copper color, with a small white lace at the top.Smell was the highlight for sure, with some gummi berry smells, some chardonnay, and a bit of vanilla. Taste was big on the sweet side. The vanilla from the oak barrels really pulls through, making it a much smoother, and sweeter ipa then it's numbered brothers. Hops were there, but in back of the sweet flavors. Mouthfeel was medium to heavy, and not exactly highly drinkable. The sweet tastes seem to overwhelm everything. While this might be one of the most interesting ipa's i have tried in a long time, i did not think it was something that i could come back to all the time. I will continue to stick with the 90 minute. Either way, I applaud calagione and company trying something new and cool. Cheers

12oz bottle into snifter. DIPA: Half fresh - half aged in oak barrels.

Clear deep amber color with a red tint. A one finger light tan head slowly settles to a bubbly rim. Thin string and spotty lacing along the glass.

Sweet and spicy hop aromas dominate the aroma. Almost a hint of caramel.

Very sweet malts, almost giving a sugary taste. The flavor from the hops is more sweet and syrupy than bitter, but they still hold their own in that department. Hints of vanilla (from the oak) are in the background. Full bodied with lower carbonation, giving it a thick oily feel in the mouth. The finish is a little sweeter than other DIPAs, with lingering hop flavor and a little bit of sugar.

Overall, this one is a little sweeter than other DIPAs, where the flavor is the focus rather than the extreme bitterness. Since this is a mix of an aged DIPA and a young DIPA, the sweetness is more pronounced. The high %ABV (10%) is well hidden, so don't get carried away. A 12oz bottle is ideal for one sitting, however you may want to tackle the 750 with a friend.

12 oz pour into a nice English pub glass with the dimpled bottom that encouraged a tornadic production of a giant head from the fury of bubbles in the bottom of the glass. Shiny reddish-orange. It’s like a vision of heaven in a glass. This has the syrupy goodness of the 90-minute, but with an added syrupiness ... robust and smooth, like a desert sauce, you could pour this over a bowl of vanilla ice cream instead of a caramel sauce, with it’s own french vanilla creaminess ... the ONLY thing that detracts here is an odd light metallic twinge at the finish that didn’t seem to fit. Otherwise, this is a beaut of a big beer with a light profile. Well done Dogfish! (#2703, 2/14/2007)

I was excited to see another offering from Dogfish Head on the shelves at the local's popular liquor store!

I brought home my four pack and immediately opened one and poured into a pint glass. The aroma was wonderful-- carmel, hop, and almost something akin to brandy!

The taste was much sweeter than I anticipated, but wonderful. Not as hoppy on the finish as I would prefer, but an excellent beer anyway.

The alcohol in this one is quite sneaky. The sweetness of the beer hides the high alcohol content, that's for sure.

As I drank a delicate lace appeared on the glass, and just a hint of froth remained.

I tried to drink two of these in a two hour period, and although I succeeded, it was not easy. This beer wasn't at all disappointing, just a little too sweet for me. I'll save it for the occasions that call for a great dessert beer.

After popping the cap a thin white swirl of "smoke" rises up out of the open bottle.

Pours sparkly clear, copper-colored with quickly rising bubbles and a half-inch of frothy looking beige foam.

Aroma of caramel bready malt, sweet fruit and light citrus and floral hops.

Rich flavor, initially very sweet, just this side of cloying. Vanilla extract, cinnamon and orange zest. A bit of a tingle in the finish, followed by an alcohol warmth, and hints of brown sugar and sweet dried fruit. Alcohol strength doesn't seem to jump out, nor do the hops.

Thick mouthfeel, syrupy and slick with a fine carbonation tingle emerging in the finish.

Average drinkabaility due to the heavy sweet flavor and heavy mouthfeel.

Appearance-Nice orange color. Decent head and retention. Very nice looking and inviting beer.

Smell-Definite citrusy and vanilla smell. Hints of pineapple, perhaps. Picking up some pine in there, as well. Smells absolutely fantastic.

Taste-Sweet. Very sweet beer. Almost overly so. Definite hints of citrus. Nice hoppiness. But, the sweetness is what overwhelms.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability-This beer goes down very smooth and has a nice feel. It's medium bodied and carbonation is very good. I can't go so far as to say it's a session beer. The sweetness is a little overwhelming. It pushes the envelope in that department. Nonetheless, very drinkable. Overall, this is a very good beer.

Big thanks to DrJay for sending this as part of BC-2. The beer was served in an Imperial Pint glass.

Appearance: The beer has a clear orange coloration. Tight bubbling beads of carbonation rise to the surface. The well maintained head is a creamy biege coloration. Thick webs of lacing remain behind on my glass.

Smell: The beer has a very tasty aroma. The beers smell is dominated by a sugary vanilla oakeyness. This combines well with a floral fruity aroma of pears, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. Big time citrus hops creep about the smell.

Taste: The beer has a up front vanilla sugary surge. This goes into a clang of hop bitterness. The bitterness is followed by more honey sweetened apricot, and pears. The beer then goes into an earthy finish.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer is full bodied. The beers carbonation lightens the beer up. The thickness of the flavors are very long lasting. The beer wasnt hard to drink. One of these is definately enough for a session.

Very interesting flavors in this one- Beautiful piney resinous hops on the aroma with some dried fruit undertones. This brew is thick, nice syrupy sweetness from the casked ale, slight spice from the barrel. Very obvious hop profile, oily on the tongue, but not too bitter in the aftertaste- very nice melding and interesting flavors. Hopefully dogfish will go even further with the IPA in the future.

This beer is a mixture of 90 minute IPA and an English cask-aged ale to yield a double-IPA. Now I have to admit, I'm a huge fan of the 90 minute IPA. So, after full disclosure, I can safely say that this is one of the top ten beers I've ever sampled.

Poured from the tap as a burnt orange color with a tight, lacy head.

The hops were most discernible in the aromas, not so much in the taste, with scents of tropical fruits and peaches.

The taste was divine - a caramel overtone with hoppy, bitter undertones, all balanced to perfection. This beer is incredibly drinkable, especially considering the high alcohol content. One of the finest dogfish head beers I've ever had.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Appearance is gorgeous, not a lot of head, but some lacing and a rich, deep amber color that's very clear. Smells not much of hops, which is what I expected, but more of ripe fruit aroma with a little hops in the background. Taste is similar to that of a 90 Minute IPA but with some of the hops replaced by a sweet, fruity flavor (I want to say a peach flavor, but I can't quite be sure). The alcohol is completely hidden in this brew, which is remarkable for 10%, the only trace is a slight warming sensation that lingers on the palate along with some sweetness. The alcohol comes through a bit more as the beer warms, but still is very hidden. The taste is very complex and rich, I think I could contemplate for a while on all the different tastes that are going on here. Mouthfeel is very smooth with only moderate carbonation. With the hidden alcohol this brew is extremely drinkable, it'll be hard to force myself to cellar one of these brews.

Overall this is instantly one of my favorite beers. I would like a little bit more head, and it might be a bit too sweet for some, but those are the only flaws I can see. A damned fine brew from one of the great American breweries.

appearance: Pours into my wine-style glass with a low, off white head that soon recedes to a thin ring and a thin smattering of carbonation islands on the surface. The beer is a clear, rich orange-amber in color.

smell: Smells absolutely delicious. Fresh oak soaked with sugary, caramel malt syrup. A ton of fruits noted, inlcuding pulpy pear, apricot, pineapple syrup, and date. Great f*ing hop aroma, too...completely loaded down with juicy, fruity hops. Great ethanol spice.

mouthfeel: The carbonation is just a little above medium. The body is full, and slightly slick on the tongue. Creamy, juicy, nice.

taste: Loads of sweet caramel malts and sugar-crusted candied fruits. Caramel malt candy. Notes of dripping pear and apricot. A delicate, sweet spice reminiscent of nutmeg and mace, comes in after the swallow. Each sip leaves a malty lip-smacking, honeylike coating. Heavy hop flavor, syrupy and tealike. Low to moderate bitterness lingers into the finish with a medley of malt flavor.

drinkability: easy enough for a beer of this weight...the alcohol is very well hidden

A: Poured into a Piraat tulip, moderately aggressively, resulting in an orangey-red body when held up to backlighting -- back down on the table, it appeared more ambery-orange. Just a slight bit of murkiness kept this from being crystal clear. A cream-colored head quickly settled down from about an inch high from the pour to about a half-inch, where it sat for awhile. No rings of lace at all, though some splotches clung to the glass momentarily as I drank it.

S: Not particularly strong at first, but more so as it warmed. Caramel malt, maple syrup, and whiskey-like alcohol. You can tell from the nose that this is a potent beer, but it's not a harsh, burning cheap-vodka alcohol smell at all, but rather a warm, inviting waft of booze, like a good whiskey or cognac, perhaps. Nice.

T: Sweeter than expected given the alleged style (DIPA): caramel malt, butterscotch and candied tropical fruit flavors give it the sweetness. Vanilla shows up too as it warms. There's an oaky dry finish that's followed by the alcohol in the back of the throat and down the hatch. That dryness lingers, presenting a nice balance to the dominant sweetness in the front of the mouth.

M: Medium- to full-bodied and on the lower end of carbonation -- which feels proper given the taste and heft. Real smooth in overall feel.

D: Very good to excellent, especially for a beer of this strength. It's a sipper, but it's not hard to go through the 12 oz bottle real fast.

Notes: I believe this bottle's been in my cellar for about 14 months. I drank one when it was fresh and it's my recollection (I didn't review it at the time) that it was more harsh all around. It seems to have mellowed quite nicely in the year or so in the cellar. . . . A note on the style: it's misleading to call this a DIPA. I believe it's a 50/50 blend, with their 90 Minute DIPA making up just one half of the equation. In taste, it's lacking the hop assault most of us expect from a DIPA. In many ways it seems to be more like a barleywine. Whatever you call it, I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it as a night-time sipper, especially on a cold night.

Pours a nice clear coppery gold, nice rising head that leaves a ton of lacing.
Smell is trademark Dogfish Head sweetness. Super sweet hops, but the sweetness overcomes the bitterness.
Taste is much more complex, honey sweet malts, vanilla, oak, alcohol in the after. Very nice with a sticky, thick mouthfeel.
Drinkability only suffers by the over the top sweetness and high ABV.
Probably one of my favorite DFH brews.

I swear the last four or five beers I've reviewed have looked just like this. blood orange/mahagony with a thick retentive head that leaves some great lace behind. If Mr. Clean were a brewmaster his beers would most defnitely resemble this.

Loamy, piney very etheral hops mesh very well with the subtle yet stubborn oak aromas. Vanilla, toasted almond, light nutty and dried berry notes.

Have to admit I had this last year and really didn't care for it. Well this years to me is a night and day difference and one of the better tasting beers I've had in a long....long time. Rich sweet vanilla, meringue, oak. Nuts again with more dried fruits. Nicely hopped with again earthy type of resiny buds. RS is much higher than anticipated. Very chewy, and gummy mouthfeel. Delicious, almost a dessert drink. Huge, complex, and in your face.
