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.

gEUS (1503) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2015
bottle at The Ultimate Imperial Stout Tasting 2015 - all props to Kevin. Side-by-side tasting of the Morning Delight, Assassin , KBBS (all 2013) and SR-71 (freshest). All of the beers have a good dose of silky smooth and rich sweetness, molasses and roasted barley malts in them. All of them are great beers. - Morning Delight: more on the freshly roasted coffee, some green paprica too, sometimes a bit too rich. 4.1/5 - Assassin: my personal favourite: very balanced aroma: slight alcohol that accentuates the subtle roasted coffee notes and chocolate, together with some oak and vanilla touch. 4.5/5 - KBBS: very thick and rich, loads of molasses. Nice barrel touch. 4.3/5 - SR-71: a lot more alcohol in the aroma, as well as peanuts and roasted nuts. 4.0/5

Bottle shared by a friend. Big want finally! 2014 pappy version! Poured pitch black with no head. But Nice legs on the Side! Sweet roasted malts, tons of molasses, notes of dark toasted coffee, marshmallow sweetness, vanilla, smoked wood, sweet bourbon, lots of bourbon in the taste. But more in a sweet way, no real alcohol heat. Loaded with sweet bakers chocolate, rye, marshmallow keeps coming back. Very thick and silky mouthfeel. Low carbonated, but that is just right for the beer. Amazing brew! Very sweet in the finish. Incredible. Quality stuff right here. Lifts it’s hype! Very Nice!!

SlovakSniper (3965) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Vintage 2014. Gold wax. Bouteille partagée dans une dégustation. Merci pour l’invitation! Grosse brute noire sans véritable mousse. Liquide très visqueux qui montre des jambes de chatte noire. Les arômes sont assez fabuleux : chocolat, fudge, tire d’érable foncée, touche salée (老抽?), whisky, réglisse, vanille, sexe épicé, notes rôties, mélasse. Grande complexité. Dans le domaine du presque merveilleux et du fantastiquement beau. Au goût, des papilles ravies par des malts amers et doux, par une sensation liquoreuse enveloppante et par une multitude de choses mystérieuses qui te font simplement dire : wow! En bouche, un liquide épais mais jamais collant avec un pétillement très bas et une texture qui relève de la plus fine des liqueurs. Une finale profondément rôtie avec une sensuelle embrassade d’un whisky piqué par le rye. Phoque, ce breuvage est tout simplement délicieux.

Vintage 2014. Noire opaque, pas de mousse. Nez de bourbon. Bouche quand même soyeuse malgré un corps assez important: beaucoup de mocha, espresso, barrique, mélasse caramélisée tirant vers l’érable et une pointe presque soya salé en finale. Excellente.
