dogfish head burton baton

Brewery: Dogfish Head
Location: Milton, Delaware
Name: Burton Baton
Style: Oak Aged Strong Ale/Double IPA Blend

a blend of 90-minute IPA and an oak-aged strong ale. the 90-minute presence is obvious at first inspection. the hop profile, though less dominant, is clearly 90-minute. the body is similar, but slightly more caramely and sweeter, with a slight astringency. poured in a snifter and inhaled deeply the nose is awash in vanilla, oak, and marzipan. the vanilla in the body adds a nice depth to behind the 90-minute hops.
