Have you tried looking for a Raison D'etre clone? It is only 8% ABV... not sure how it compares because I haven't had a D'extra. Anyway, here is a link to a clone recipe.. just sub the pale malt for extra light DME:

Yea your looking for the D'etre. It's good but even at 8% a little hot, I have an D'extra downstairs and I don't even want to open it because I know it's going to be...intense.

I had the D'extra first you get the jet fuel burn of the alchohol, but goes into a NICE cinnamon raison toast which is what I'm looking for. just a good sipper for whenever. thinking about a fat tyre to start then just guess at the brown sugar and raison, with the SA-05 to eat it all up. BUT have to wait until my american amber/ pumpkin pie ale bottles are empty. hoping to get some kegs by christmas.. (wink,wink my lovely wife).

OH the irony. I just cracked a bottle of D'Extra. 07 bottle. I think I read that this was the last year that they had made a batch of D'Extra. It is very intenste. Loads of alcohol and malty sweetness fading away to a big kick in the pants with some raisins.

I don't think your going to get close using US-05. I would probably go with one of the Belgian strains. Dogfishhead uses a Belgian yeast for the D'etra and D'extra.
