|Dogfish Head Burton Baton|
|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!|

I purchased this one in Florida. It's my first.
Serving Type: 12 oz bottle
Glassware: Tulip (See photo)
This one poured a deep clear copper color with a beautiful fluffy off-white head, leaving very thick lacing in my glass. I can smell it as it sits on my counter. Nose is a burst of sweet candy, sugar cane and very delicate floral notes with some citrus mixed in. It has a medium body and it's carbonation is very high, seems velvety on the tongue. Entry is bursting with flavor, sweet caramel candy, sugar cane, then picking up some of the oak notes. It is very malty. It finishes sweet, clean, woody, earthy with very little hop presence. It almost has a whiskey feel to it. This is an outstanding IPA, packed with flavor and just a pleasure to drink. Only negative is that it's a little bit on the sweet side. No matter, I still give it 4 1/2 stars, Outstanding and I wish I had more. Please come to Louisiana Dogfish Head.
