Captain Lawrence Espresso Stout

Another growler my buddy Tim gave me in a beer trade was the Captain Lawrence Espresso Stout. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan head that fades rather rapidly. The aroma consists of chocolate, espresso, coffee, vanilla, and toasted malts. The taste is dry and bitter with plenty of dark chocolate taking the focus. A dry coffee and espresso flavor takes over the mouth on the finish, and a touch of vanilla sweetness rounds out the flavor. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. I rather enjoyed this stout with its power coffee and espresso punch. It definitely focuses on the dry flavors, especially the dark chocolate flavors.
