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.

The closest thing I've ever had to a 5/5 and the stout every other stout should be judged against. I've never had anything quite like it and probably never will. Just an awesome beer all around.

2014 bottle poured into a snifter. Nice mix of chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, molasses and bourbon flavors. Thinner body than expected, which held back the overall experience.
