COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The elusive brew is made from pilsner malt and amber malt with an original gravity of 26.5?P, yielding an 11% abv. It's hopped with Warrior and Glacier varieties. Primary fermentation takes place in open vessels using two yeast strains, one American and one English. For added complexity, the beer is conditioned on barrel staves of French Oak for four months before being dry hopped with Glacier at the rate of a half-pound per barrel. This elixir is then blended 50/50 with 90 Minute IPA. After blending, the beer will measure 80 IBU and 10% abv. Bottled in corked bottles through Michael Jackson’s rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

Petkus331 (157) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
Aroma of charred malt, citrus, vanilla, flowers, and a touch of raspberry. Apears orangish-copper, clear, thick head, beautiful lace. Tastes of reisling grapes, flowers, passion fruit, a touch of pine resin, followed by a flash of mild grapefruit bitterness. Palaye very nice, fizzy, but not enough for a 5. Overall, wow! This is a great beer! Dogfish Head never fails me!

Tap. Dark amber. Lingering head. Boozey nose. Tastes of honey, floral hops, subtle oak adding to a sweet boozey taste. Fantastic.

Pours a darker Amber. Minimal head. Decent carbonation. Aroma very earthy hops with some oak. Taste is hops with a slight barrel tasting. Easy drinking beer

Xenon (70) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2014
Deep lacquered color, hardly pale. This was good, but despite the complexity I still enjoy their 90 minute ipa better. I do like the hop choice they’ve made for this. It smells a bit more mossy and outdoorsy than the standard beer. It reminds me of my boy scout trips more than almost any other beer, so I think that is it’s strongest point. Sticky lace all over the glass. Really good, but I will still reach for the cheaper standard beer

Super smooth sweet maltiness and fantastic hop boutique. The oak notes cone through. Love it.

iRavali (22) - Delaware, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pours Amber, brownish. I was in an awfully dark place with weird lighting so, I may be wrong here. Smells hoppy, some malty feel to it. Tastes of strong hops on a big swig but when approached mildly, especially rolling it at the tip of your tongue, you can detect hints of sweet almost caramel. Burton Baton didn't disappoint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (2002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Draft - Skunky hops, caramel malts and slight oak. Clearish orange with a rich beige head. Sweet orange candy and skunky with a bit of booze. A nice DIPA.

This is a fresh bottle from the 2014 batch. I prefer my Burton aged so this is my impression of it fresh. Pours a copper/orange with a frothy tan head. A hoppy citrusy nose with a hint of oak aged booziness. Has a medium body with a malty backbone and a sweet, sticky finish.

One of the better beers I've ever tasted. If it wasn't for the exceptionally high alcohol content I would drink it more often. Beer shouldn't taste this good.
