Bomber at share, 2020 vintage. Near black pour, dissipating brown head. Sweet chocolaty aroma with coconut, bourbon. Taste blends the milk chocolate and coconut to perfection for a nice candy bar vibe. Just boozy enough.

Coconut and chocolate with layers of sweetness and bourbon. One can compare this to some of the best coconut barrel aged beers to exist and it’s up there at the top. Draft was phenomenal, rich, smooth and a wonderful treat.

12 oz. bottle. Black body with a thick khaki collar. Smells of coconut, nutty malts, and rich fudge. Tastes of hefty fudge, nutty malts, coconut, and finally a little barrel in the back end. Just whisps of whiskey. Very thick, rich, and heavy. Pretty good, but it's not a standout. Sweet coconut stout with hints of barrel.

Obsidian black, but a little oily, with a short mocha head that dies off fairly quickly, moreso than its base.

Syrupy thick and cloyingly sweet--at least by comparison to its stellar base--there's a melange of dark fruits, and the coconut lies behind that. It's not terribly coconut forward, and coming at such a high price that's a bit of a let down. There's also some sticky heat, but hey, it's still Assassin.

2019 version thanks to sverseman.
L: black, pretty minimal dark brn head.
S: Coconut, fudge, almonds, bourbon.
T: Coconut fudge with extra nuts, vanilla, bourbon, oakiness.
F: Thiccc and oily.
Overall: solid. Would not pay $50 for it repeatedly. BL Hypermash Hydra Was slightly better.
