I feel like these Pipeworks pints change from beginning to end, both in terms of temperature and in terms of how drunk I am while drinking them. So with this one and the other two I've tried, I liked them at least a little more once I was done with it than when I started.

It's a bit warm for a stouty beer like this. At first it tasted a little too stout, a little burned, but sipping it, it felt a little smoother. The orange aftertaste rather than the spicy aftertaste of End of Days was better for warmer weather I suppose. Cacao nibs are evident.

I put it in my top five beers.

Pours almost solid dark black. There is a thin quarter finger dark tan head that retains nicely. There is a lot if nice lacing left all around the glass.

Smell has deep notes of roasted coffee and creamy dark chocolate along hints of fresh crisp orange. Malt is very rich with great toffee notes and a light sweetness.

Taste is awesome. Rich creamy notes of chocolate is forward with roasted malt and lightly roasted coffee. A slight orange sweetness is somewhere near the middle of the sip before a nice light char bitterness which persists into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is great. Really thick and velvety. Moderate small bubble carbonation over a juicy sweet sticky feel gives it a smooth creamy body. A very mild char bitterness in the finish.
