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.

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]

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

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.

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.

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 nitro-tap 10/12/2014 at Doherty’s Ale East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a large dense light brown head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate.

T: The taste starts out very creamy with flavors of coffee and chocolate followed by a hearty roasted malt character. The coffee flavor strengthens as you continue to drink the beer. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter-sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a decent stout to drink for a while.

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.
