Holy jumping fuckin' shitballs, this is a great beer. Poured into my Bruery snifter from the bottle while watching Drag Me to Hell (I salute you, Sam Raimi).
Deep brownish crimson, perfect clarity when held up to the light, impressive cap of tan foam that just never seems to completely go away. Nice legs when swirled. Oh, and I really like the bottle/label/wax on this too, which is just a bonus. Awesome.
Smell is outstanding. Candy aromas abound - toffee, caramel, rum raisin, perhaps a bit of generic nuttiness, booze, and a good amount of vanilla and bourbon to round it out. Awesome.
Taste... is to die for. Ye gods. This series is incredible, and seems to keep getting better. I had a bottle of the BA Coton a couple weeks ago and was floored, and I think this is better. Big bourbon, figs and raisins, toffee crunch, caramel, and a big spoonful of vanilla cream. Awesome.
Mouthfeel is absolutely perfect. Full, rich, not quite syrupy, long lasting finish. Perfect amount of carbonation. Awesome.
Overall: Did I mention this beer is awesome? Black Tuesday might want to move over, I may have a new favorite from the Bruery.

Poured into a Delirium snifter on 2/2/13
Shared at a tasting by Spider889. Thanks Chris.
A) Dark, dense rusted brown. Not much in terms of foam; just a little around the collar. Sediment in the bottom.
S) Molasses, brown sugar, oak char, dark berries, leather, caramel, toffee. For 14.5% abv it doesn't smell boozy at all.
T) The taste is hotter with alcohol all over the finish. Sugary and sticky. Toasted bread, molasses, caramel, nail polish and modest oak.
M) Full, slick sugary/alcohol feel. Carbonation is quite low. Overall, it is too heavy of a feel.
D) Drinkable as a slow sipper. It is nice in that it isn't incredibly hot.
