+1 on Special B. You don't need a lot, maybe a quarter pound. VERY distinct raison flavors.

yeah...i've definitely tasted belgian's that had a raisin flavor, but i highly doubt they used raisins. i wish i could remember an example...cuz one of them was good.

(maybe a little too good! )

Put me down for an "and1" on the Special B. I use it in my Scottish to add a dark fruit raisin-like flavor. This summer I used Crystal 120 instead because it seemed like the entire country was out of Special B for a few week span. I really thought it would be very similar but it just wasn't quite the same.
