4.26/5 rDev -12.9%
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Tiny pour at Peg's.
Appearance - Glass staining black body. Viscous. No head.
Smell - Vanilla and chocolate. Rye whiskey. Dark chocolate and coffee.
Taste - Less intense vanilla, but present. Dark chocolate. Whiskey. Coffee roasted malt.
Mouthfeel - Very thick. Slick and syrupy. Lingers on the palate.
Overall - Irresponsibly small pour, but it was really good. Just like Assassin but with more vanilla.

This was opened at Perennial today and drank with KBBS, BA Abraxas, and Fuzzy. Small 2-3 oz pour from the 12oz 2013 vintage bottle into a snifter.
A - Dark obviously like every other solid stout out there with decent lacing. Looks thick and vicious in appearance and definitely stains the glass.
S - Small notes of vanilla with chocolate as well as light notes of whiskey. Hard to compare because I have not had regular assassin but smell is pretty damn good
T - Taste follows the nose although the vanilla is somewhat muted. It blends in with the milk and dark chocolate flavors that come through from the base. Definitely some hints of coffee in there and some bourbon on the finish although it is not that prevalent.
M - Mouthfeel is pretty thick and vicious, not as thick as KBBS and MD but it is definitely a thicker BA stout which I love
O - Glad I was lucky enough to get to try this along the KBBS and the other fine brews that were drank today. Thanks again Cory
