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.
