Dogfish Head Burton Baton Beer Review

The Burton Baton from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, a Double IPA that is a blend of an English-style Old Ale and an Imperial IPA that is brewed and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks before being brought together and blended in large oak tanks. This final result is an ale that comes in with a 10% ABV and an IBU level sitting at 70. This all being said, I found this beer to be a delightful brew with some great smoothness. It played more like a Strong Ale for me though than an IPA; there was a decent amount of maltiness and the bitterness seemed to be more on the initial than the finish. There was a nice feel of the oakiness as well as vanilla characteristic from the barreling. There was some booziness that did arise in the aroma as well as the flavor, but it was nothing off-putting. Definitely, one that I would recommend for anyone that enjoys a nice barreled beer, and if you have had it then let me know by leaving a comment. Check out the video to see and hear more of my thoughts on this one.
