Notes: Prepare your palate for the delectable flavors of milk chocolate fudge laced in caramel with the warming sensation of apple brandy and bourbon barrel influence to conclude each sip.

Beer if the year! I like the brandy barrel sweetness. This blends perfect with the caramel/chocolate ba stout. Well done TG!

Bottle thanks to Dish.... this is one of the best non-adjunct barrel aged beers I've ever had. Pours jet black and is thick without being cloying.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a snifter at the Toppling Goliath Prime Rib DB Assassin dinner on 11/18/2021. Amazing beer. Plenty of barrel but not too hot.

One of the best beers of the year. Terrific barrel treatment, super thick mouthfeel, fudge and chocolate bomb. Not quite SR-71, but the best Assassin in the last 5+ years.

Bottle. Tan head that fades. Black color. Oily. Lots of legs.

Incredibly complex. The apple brandy and bourbon go back and forth. Incredibly fudgy with oak and vanilla. Dark berries, molasses, Black Forest cake. Amazing barrel flavors. Incredible barrels. Warming bourbon. Caramel. More fudge.

Absolutely incredible.

L: Dark mahogany hues with a thin rust colored head
S: Melted milk chocolate, hint of dark roast and vanilla
T: Incredibly smooth sipper with a robust cocoa note that recedes into a silky dark fudge with a subtle, but still pronounced green apple note
F: Standard TG stout thickness with ample carb
O: Stunning stout - easily one of TG's best in recent memory
