3.93/5 rDev +13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: Appearance is of a dark red/amber roasty color with a minimalistic head that is typical of what one would expect from a beer which went a bit flat.
S: Crisp clean and refreshing with a hint of what seems to be, dust!? Generally makes me want to take a sip.
T: The beer has a well balanced profile of sweet malts and hops that hit all of the right notes.
M: While the surprising lack of carbonation in this brew leave something to be desired, they also made way for a drink which was surprisingly smooth and refreshing.
O: I picked this up as well as the non-nitro version at the same time I bought both milk stouts from Left Hand. My plan was to compare both styles and see how that effects flavor etc. While the flavor here may be crisper and smoother than the original, it seems as though the lack of carbonation in this bottle detracts from the brew more than one would think. I think in the future I'll stick with the original.

3.41/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Copper orange, almost no carbonation, a finger of yellowish thick head, clear filtered.
S: Caramel, toffee, orange, dried grass, rich malts.
T: Slightly sweet toffee, little orange and dried grass.
M: Thick slightly gelatinous body, almost no carbonation. The head at first was thick like white bread and was fun to bite through.
O: Nicely done ESB. I think the nitro is a little lacking, though I tried a vigorous pour. Slightly sweet, but overall well done. Drank in Boca Raton, July 21st, 2014.

3.56/5 rDev +3.2%

Best by 9/03 and poured 7/08. $2.29 single.
Appearance: Poured completely vertically full force instantly into my glass. Gorgeous two finger head that honestly looks like memory foam. Beer bottle brown. Not much lacing, surprisingly. (4.25/5)
Smell: Pale malts. Grainy. Almost an adjuncty aroma. Slight hop spice with quite a lot of earthiness. A slight fruity character as well. (3.5/5)
Taste/feel: Again, quite grainy. A dark fruit quality comes through as well in the middle of the mouth. Finish is more graininess with a nice bit of hoppiness and a little bitterness. Feel's creamy, yet light. Easy drinking. (3.5/5, 3.75/5)
Solid. It has adjunct qualities to it that I actually don't mind at all just because I've (strangely) wanted a beer with this sort of graininess for awhile. It's light and not hugely interesting, but it's an enjoyable brew, and nitro bottles are always fun to pour.
