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.
