Today I'm drinking Raison D'Être brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware. I'd love to say this review was planned to coincide with the framed return of my Chicory Stout Spusta Print, but I didn't think of that until just now. Surprising since I had to go back to Michael's and complain that they didn't put a wire on the back of the frame to hang it. Jeez. Anyway, I reviewed this beer a very long time ago, in February, 2009. Can't say I even remember it in the slightest. Bottled 09/10/10 E (which I think is actually a B with the humps missing).
Brown sugar and burnt caramel aroma. Oh yeah! Rich sweet molasses and brown sugar and caramel get the party started. No doubt that the 8% alcohol gives this its "sense of purpose" with a bit of a burn. Next up, an intense raisin flavor given in a sour, acidic, and strange kind of way. Those flavors are polar opposites of the annoyingly sweet candy flavors that this beer keeps seesawing back and forth with. With the undisguised alcohol accentuating every up-and-down aspect I've mentioned, I am sorry that I crashed this party. I'm not digging this beer at all! Sweet dry flavors left behind. I'd pick up one or more of dozens of better beers from Dogfish Head.
