Bottle generously shared by Chris at my 33rd birthday party. Served in a FoBAB taster pint glass.
A - Looks nearly identical to the port version. Perhaps a tiny bit less foam lingering on this one.
S - Incredibly sweet. It's like drinking moscatel mixed with Dark Lord; go figure! I like dessert wines, so this works for me, for the most part. Not much oak or booze, just intense fruit, caramel, chocolate fudge, and so forth.
T - There's a mild soy and tobacco note in the finish for which I don't totally care. Not much oak, and minimal booze. Otherwise the flavor is nearly identical to the aroma; a mix of sweet dessert wine and Dark Lord.
M - Nearly identical to the Port version. Huge, sticky, oily, chewy, and viscous. Low carbonation, reasonably well-hidden alcohol.
D - Again, it's nearly the same experience as the Port, but with a bit less vinous tartness and a touch more sweetness. Again, best enjoyed in 2-4oz servings, and really needs a bit more oak and spirit bite to offset the sweetness of the base beer.

A-Black in the glass, some dark head that doesn't last that long.
S-Rather fruity, oak and wine notes. Together with the roasted malt and the chocolate. But the wine and fruit are the main part.
T-Very similar to the nose, started off with grapes, wine, oak and fruit. The finish was much more like a regular stout.
M-Medium to heavy in body, not much carbonation.
O- A HUGE thanks to the super generous person that shared in line. I don't know who you are, but you are a huge bro.
