Drink Good Beer - Burton Baton

If you try one beer this year it should be Dogfish Head's Burton Baton.

Burton Baton is a blend of dogfish Head's excellent 90 Minute IPA with an oak aged English Strong Ale. This is done brilliantly, as the Burton tastes like two distinct beers with each sip.

The 1st time I had one I knew nothing about it and thought it tasted like a mix of 90 Minute and a bit of Palo Santo Marron, without the alcohol heat you get from the Palo Santo.

I like the 90 minute, but damn I'd stockpile a years supply of this stuff if I could. It's that good.

If you're a beer drinker this is one you don't want to pass up. Drink it with caution though. At 10% ABV it packs a punch.
