look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A – black in the glass. A little lacing.

S – chocolates. Lactose. Roasted malts. Coffee notes. Smells milky and sweet

T – milky creamy and roasted. Chocolate notes and coffee notes also, alot of lactose

M – silky, smooth. Milky. Pretty tasty

O – Good but not great, it doesnt stand out as much as it could but i really enjoyed it. Its way above average. Bnot the best but its not bad. Cheers
(Edit)
This is not nearly as milky as i remember it being. Maybe because i was half drunk. But i think its a great beer.

Serving type: on-tap

3.69/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Coca cola coloured, topped with a lightweight cap of mocha foam.

S - Smoke and coffee hit me first off. Roasted malts play a supporting role. The aroma is nice but not outstanding.

T - Mild yet a little underwhelming. All the classic stout flavours are there, but they're muted.

M - It's definitely super smooth, so credit to Left Hand for figuring out how to put nitro beer in a bottle. Be that as it may, it feels smooth in part due to feeling undercarbonated. Milky yet too thin to be called creamy.

O - I'd try this again on tap, but this beer reiterates to me that it's hard to go back once you've gone Imperial. This might be a nice step on the ladder if you seek to climb upwards from Guinness.

Serving type: nitro-bottle
