Overall, this is a really nice beer. The rich body is deep and complex and the sweetness really works well. This "beer" did not need a huge finish and Dogfish did a nice job of doing just enough on the finish to complment the beer.
The sweetness, texture and lightly noticeable alcohol in this beer reminds me more of a port rather than beer, wine or mead. I would pair this with a dessert if I had to choose a course but I rather have Midas Touch by itself to appreciate the different flavors.

Burton Baton poured a hazy, dark amber color with a frothy, finger width tan head. The nose had a nice balance of malt, hops and sweetness. The body has a substantial amount of malt up front to balance out the big hops that come in on the finish. The finish is hoppy with a lingering dryness.
Overall, this is an amazing blended brew. The big 10% ABV is hidden well and the beer itself is extremely well balanced. The body is deep and smooth with a deep flavor profile. This would pair incredibly well with an Indian, Mexican or Thai dishes.
