Probably the best mouthfeel I've ever had in a beer. In fact I never understood why mouthfeel was part of the ratings until Assassin. Coated your mouth almost like peanut butter does it was so thick. Will definitely try to find another bottle.

Tried the 2013 & 2014 vintage side by side, both are wonderful but the 13 was better making me believe a year of age does great things for this beer

Unbelievably enormous without any one area being over the top. Deep roast, sweet, toasted coconut, perfect barrel character. Every quality you would want in a stout. The best beer I have had to date.
