Perfect points all around on this one. One of its key ingredients is green raisins, and they certainly sweeten the mix. But not too sweet, mind you. Easy to get into and enjoy from start to finish. orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2006 Beautiful mohagany color and with some nice bubbles. Taste is sweet, but bold. I love this beer and to me it’s the best marriage of wine and beer that I have ever tasted. Truly in a league all it’s own. Goes great with raisin bran. TheJoseph (5) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2007 does not count
Complex and delicious. Coffee, fruity, a little oak, lots of molasseses, very heavy. Heavy alcohol content means watch how many you have, and they’re certainly filling to the point where they make a wonderful snack. Very recommended, one of my favorite beers.

Outstanding beer! Very smooth taste with a little kick. A must try. Will be trying again & again & again.

Sweet, than spicy. This brew was very good. Complex and hits nice on the palate. Another great brew from Dogfish Head. mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2003
whew this is a good one. A nice little buzz is present after I drink this. I like rasion taste and it is filling. I really like the sweet and tart complexity and how it offsets the two ends of the flavor spectrum. In plain english buy this beer! It was a little bit of a shock on first taste as it is strong but as it warms it gets easier to drink. Definitly sip this one though, the flavor is too good not to. gmcase (115) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle. This is it. Original. Complex. Balanced. Art. I was scared of trying any beer that said it was brewed with raisins. Boy I was surprised. This is a complex mohogany ale. Want something different? This is a masterpeice! PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2000
I think this might qualify for
a barleywine. An amazing concoction.
Sweet and complex, with hints of chocolate
in the aroma and flavor (but none in the
ingredient list, as far as I know).
High alcohol content doesn’t show until
the very last sip. Very drinkable.
As the bottle says, it is mahogany
colored - very nice looking. Its time to
make a trip to Lewes, DE. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2002
This is definitely a unique brew, dark brown in color, very sweet aroma, complex flavoring, could definitely taste the raisins in the brew, rich malty flavors & in the aftertaste, wonderful brew
