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.

This was disappointing considering the hype around the beer. I had the gold wax and it was very thin. Very little barrel notes were there. Even though this is a very solid stout its not worth the price of admission unless your there at release. B+ overall

Echo GRG1313 below. This is a good beer, but so, so overhyped. To be honest, it is an average really good imperial stout. For those that are looking to "sell the farm" to get one of these, I would not go out of my way at all to acquire this.
Taste very good, but a Bit thin.
Nice vanilla and chocolate notes, some heat, minor bite, nothing extraordinary....actually very ordinary.
Overall, solid stout...nothing outstanding.

2014 out of the bottle. It's a good stout, I thought sr71 was better. Very over rated stout

Bottle share at Courtyard & Cellar for Toppling Goliath Mornin' Delight release!!!


22oz Bottle

2014 version. Jet black. Nose is good whiskey and chocolate. Super smooth with complex notes of whiskey and chocolate. Feel is thick and chewy...delicious!! Highly recommended.

(A+)

DEFINITELY BELONGS ON THE TOP 250!
