Notes / Commercial Description:
After endless hours of scorching in heat, brewing in turmoil, fermenting in angst, the Assassin’s journey has just begun. In the shadow of the temple, he lies in wait, maturing his plot to perfection. He emerges merciless, dominated by darkness, his bite laced with the charred remnants of his victims. No man dares to cross his path. They will forever sleep with one eye open, in fear of the Assassin’s hot kiss of death.

2016 Batch Pour from Iowa Craft Beer Festival in Des Moines, IA.

Thick, Stick Bourbon. Pitch black with dark khaki head which subsides rather quickly. One of the thickest stouts I have drank in relation to mouthfeel. Amazing beer!!!

An excellent beer. 16 and 14 both amazing. But wait until you try the coffee version. Another special brew from the TG gang.
