Draft at Assassin 2018 release event at TG.

Look is extremely dark and oily appearance with zero foam upon pour. Smell is barrel and loads of coconut. Taste was incredibly loaded with coconut. Chocolate also. Sweet. The coconut added quite a bit of sweetness to the already slightly sweet base. Fudgy and sticky feel for sure.

Out of the 3 Assassins I had (along with Coffee Assassin and regular), although this was my 'least' favorite, it was still fantastic. If you are a coconut junkie, this one would deliver and then some. My favorite was actually the regular Assassin because it's already an awesome base beer. The adjunct just takes a bit away from that balance. And since Assassin 2018 base is already a bit sweet from the barrel, the coconut just made it even sweeter.

But this is a phenomenal beer, make no mistake about it.

This is an utterly incredible offering. Taste is rich, viscous liquid fudge with sweet vanilla. Coconut provided a general sweeter more desserty experience than the base beer. Warm bourbon present but not overwhelming. Coats the entire mouth. Lucky to have tried!

On tap at Assassin day 2018. Motor oil black. No head.

This takes Assassin to another love. The coconut adds the perfect layer to this beer. Sweet, rich, and fudgy. Chocolate and a light barrel char. Amazing whiskey notes. Thick. Vanilla/marshmallow flavor. This is decadent. Dessert and brownie like.
