Dogfish Head Raison D’Extra

Volume: 12 fl oz
Glass: Trappist

Impression: A beautifully dark, deep ruby color, slightly hazy due to bottle conditioning. The alcohol is present even in the aroma, but it is also a mix of chocolate, raisins, and sweetness and flowers. The taste is just too much for me. Very much like the 120 Minute IPA, it simply overwhelms the palate, and tastes almost like syrup, but an alcoholic syrup. It demands to be lightly sipped. Just a bit on the tongue is all I can enjoy, and I’m not that big a fan of raisins. It makes one’s eyes cross. Affects all areas of the mouth. Rich like molten lava cake, it’s hard for me to enjoy, though I’m glad I found my limits in this latest batch of tastings.
