Part of a flight at the brewery

Pours a deep brown with a small mocha head

Aromas of heavy coffee, vanilla and maple

Taste is surprisingly not very coffee forward, more of that deep roasted and maple sweetness

Feel is a bit thinner than expected for 8.5% but not bad

Overall a pretty decent coffee stout, definitely different

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted coffee nose and taste is malty roasted coffee with burnt coffee finish. Higher ABV, 8.5% is hidden. $2.90 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark black body, full opaque and dark with a one finger offwhite head, good retention, thin collar, not much lacing. Smell is creamy milk chocolate, black coffee bean with a bit of roast, lactose, a bit of toasted chocolate barley, slight earthiness. Flavour is a nice balance of roasted coffee bean, black coffee, a fair bit of milk chocolate which makes me wonder if lactose was added; good mild fudge presence with an earthy bitter bite on the backend. Good balance, although the coffee ends up being covered a bit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, smooth and very enjoyable. A delicious RI coffee stout that holds up with anything I've come across locally.

Very dark beer with a thick tan head. Smells strongly of roasted coffee of course. The flavor is great. Thick and creamy in both flavor and texture, but there is a bitterness.

Review from BA Mag Issue #119 ( Dec 2016 )

Roasty, Bitter, Caffeinated, Brawny
Big and robust, White Electric never wavers from its roastiness. Revival makes good use of coffee, there’s more than enough flavor from the beans to hold up in this massive Stout. It’s bitter and aggressive, smooth and creamy. A big beer with sweetness kept to a minimum. There are some contrasting elements here that have melded quite well together. Meanwhile, the roasted character just keeps hammering away sip after sip. A very enjoyable beer, but not for timid palates. [Jason]

Had on Nitro tap.
Looks great, a fine thick tan head atop a dark brown beer.
Smells of coffee and milk chocolate.
Tastes of more coffee, bitter roasted grains and
Feel is very smooth (thanks to nitro), creamy and lighter to medium body, hides the alcohol well - never would guess it is 8%.

Overall, quite a good beer. Really great on a nitro tap if you can find it.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Label says freshest before date notched, notch is on November.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 3/4 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Earthy aroma with some mild coffee roast. Slightly sweet-smelling.

T- Balanced flavor of malty sweetness and medium roast coffee. ABV is hidden quite well. Some hop bitterness as well as roast bitterness.

M- Sharp from the hops and roast with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- While the bitterness gets to be a bit much as the drink progresses, this is a decently executed coffee stout that I would order again if I saw it on draft somewhere.

12 oz. bottle

Pours black with a creamy frothy dark tan foam head. Smells like berries, dark fruit, roasty malts, some coffee, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like iced coffee with dark fruit, berries, roasty malts, dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, with bitter earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty nice coffee stout.

Dark brown color where only faint light shines through the edge of the glass. Lasting foamy head that leaves a solid blanket of lace.

Mocha aroma of dark coffee and semisweet chocolate. Light chalk.

Very smooth body with a great nitro - effervescence at Bukowski's in Boston. It starts with a semisweet chocolate that transforms into a cocoa - mocha which further morphs into straight up coffee in the swallow. Long bitter coffee grounds aftertaste.

Meadhall Cambridge.

A- Black pour from the taps to a pint glass with a puffy nutty brown head. Cap makes it to a finget with good retention. Massive blanket remains and lacing is huge.

S- Freshly brewed coffee makes up a vast majority of the aroma with brew and grounds coming out. Charred ashy grains round it out with a hint of bitter dark chocolate.

T- Once again the coffee grounds rule the realm. Bitter dark roast coffee leads into bitter dark chocolate bars, milk chocolate chip cookies, bitter earthy hops, a hint of dried dark fruits and caramel sweetness. All about that French press.

MF- Thick bodied and somewhat oily. Texture is lacking a bit but a frothy and foamy feel pokes in. Finishes a bit warm and very burnt bitter.

Bitter coffee and chocolate dominate the palate with bitterness. If you like coffee you might like this.

On tap at Meadhall in Cambridge.

Pours a thick black with little head. Very strong coffee/chocolate/vanilla aroma. The coffee is a little subdued on the palate and very well balanced by chocolate and roasted malt. Finishes sweeter and crisper than I'd expected for such a big beer. Much more balanced with little alcohol warmth.

Overall a very good coffee stout and one that I'll drink again!

I've been waiting a long time to try this beer, and I was slightly disappointed. This, however, will not keep me from drinking it again or visiting the brewery. Perhaps I got an "off" bottle or maybe it's better on tap? Speaking of the bottle, there was no expiration date notched on it.
The head quickly dissipated when poured into my pint glass from the bottle. There was little retention. I could smell some roastiness, but the taste was very bitter. The color did remind me of coffee without cream; it was a nice dark brown. Upon this initial consumption, I am determined to get me another bottle!

Poured a jet brown black color in a Stone Snifter with a 2F head.

Excellent aroma: coffee,chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt. The aroma is strong throughout the tasting.

Light malty MF with light bitterness.

The taste Is deep coffee- not espresso, more like Columbian. smooth, rich.

Overall: excellent coffee stout. I'll be looking for more of their beers.

Had in tulip glass at Flynn's in Mansfield.

Look: Pours deep brown to black with minimal head.

Smell: Rich coffee and chocolate notes. Minimal hop aroma.

Taste: Again coffee and chocolate but backed up by an earthy hop bitterness. Almost 0 alcohol warmth. Incredibly smooth for a 8% beer.

Feel: Lighter body than the color and ABV would have me assume. This is an imperial stout that drinks like a 5%.

Overall: Fantastic coffee stout from Revival! Light enough to stay relevant year round, but with enough coffee and roasted malt to satisfy the stout aficionado in me.

Served on tap at Brutopia in Cranston, RI in a flute glass.

Body is straight black and opaque. Not much head to speak of or lacing.

Aromas are potent and inviting, lots of coffee, vanilla, caramel and almost a nice maple aroma. Taste isn't as promising as the nose but still very nice, freshly roasted coffee, chocolate, finished by a light char. Mouthfeel is slightly thin especially considering the ABV.

Overall solid, would drink again.

Strikes a nice balance. Strong coffee with a bit of vanilla? Tad bit of a creamy feel but the carbonation overwhelms that. Very drinkable.

Not a bad stout at all. I might get it again if it see it at a good price.

A - Black body with a medium tan head leaves little lacing, but never completely fades.
S - Powerful nose of coffee, chocolate and roast malts.
T - Overwhelming attack of coffee, sweet malt, chocolate.
M - Thick, paints the palate. Low carb. Lingers and doesn't leave.
O - This is a fine coffee stout, but the coffee is very strong. Be warned.

Served in a snifter glass on draft here at the British Beer Company in Cape Cod, MA.

Appearance: Thin black body with medium bubbles at best to the body. Head is a light tan color, rises to maybe a finger's length.

Smell: Light milk and espresso.

Taste: Light coffee and mocha, has a bit of sweet notes to it. Could be a little more potent but no real complaints.

Mouth: Medium body with a light to medium carbonation, slightly sticky.

Overall: Not a bad brew. Worth definitely trying but there are better coffee infused stouts out there. Needs a bit tweaking. Salud.

Sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark chocolate brown color with foamy tan head of 1 cm rising up after the pour and fading to a sturdy edge layer that clings after each sip.
Aroma is heavy with coffee grounds and roasted malt, very much like a cup of coffee. Maybe a little nutty scent buried in the nose too.
First sip reveals an average body with fine tingly carbonation and a silky texture.
The beer is easy to drink on the physical side of things.
Flavor is roasted malt and coffee grinds with just a little bit of booze on the finish. But a lingering roast malt and coffee dominates this beer. I will buy more of this one as I found it very enjoyable, a little more thickness on the body is the only big improvement in my opinion.

12oz bottle served in a tulip. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a tight, half inch, khaki-colored head. Nose expresses roasted coffee, a hint of coffee syrup and a suggestion of vanilla. Taste expresses lots of grounds and some char. Very little sweetness. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (closer to light) with an assertive carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid non-BA beer. Coffee is quite pleasant without being vegetal. This would make a great breakfast stout.

On draft at Thee Red Fez:

A decent stout, but not really overwhelmingly good in any area. Feels like it just needs a little more depth. Felt a little thin, with not enough body, and the taste was kind of just one note coffee.
