COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black and viscous, like the oil that seeped from the sides of this "Providence Landmark Museum". The 484 Imperial Stout is named after the infamous submarine that was retired and eventually sunk in the Providence Harbor. It is to be enjoyed top-side, and not at the controls. Periscope Down!

On tap at Doherty’s Ale House Warwick. Comes to the table a solid black with a thin tan head that didn’t survive the trip from the waitress station. Aromas of cocoa and light roast with a hint of cardboard and some light earthy hop. The flavor is sweet caramel chocolate and roasted malts. Light earthy hop, a bit of dark fruit and some alcohol as well. Drinkable, but far from my favorite imperial.

Probably need to try some more for an accurate evaluation. Typical stout color and aroma. Roasted malts made this very dry and only a tiny sweetness balance for the finish. Body was not as big as hoped. Still pleasant.

Sampled at GABF 2013. Deep brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and dark fruit. Medium sweetness, mild bitterness. A little thin, but pretty tasty.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 4, 2012
(Draft @ Track 84) Served in a tulip. Very dark brown with a finger of tan head. Chocolate, coffee and fruit aroma. Mouthfeel full, fairly smooth, perhaps a bit dry for an Imp. Stout. Light, weepy but sturdy rings of lacing. Flavor of bitter chocolate and coffee, a bit charry at first. Bitter chocolate predominates, not too complex. As it warms there are hints of molasses and dark fruit. Decent but a bit underwhelming for the style. ABV pretty well integrated.
