Dogfish Head Raison D’Extra

Posted by

This is an extreme version of Dogfish Head’s Raisin D’etre, a beer brewed with, yes, raisins. I’ve had both versions and am happy to report this is the better of the two. Almost like a barley wine, this is malty and sweet on the nose. The palate is distinctly raisin-y, but that adds quite a nice layer to the barley wine style body, with its strong alcohol. Well balanced, the alcohol is not dominating, even as it adds body. On a really basic level I enjoy this beer tremendously.

Excellent
