The new Nitro version of their milk stout pours a nearly black, opaque beverage with a creamy beige but small (1/2 " or so) head.
Smells of chocolate, vanilla maltiness
It's a complex brew with enough hops to keep a bitter edge and a clean finish. All this makes it very drinkable.
The fine bubbles provide a great mouthfeel.
Left Hand claims that they have been working on this bottled nitro for years. They've accomplished a nice effect without adding any internal nitro gadgets which would have made recycling more difficult and added to production costs.

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.
