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.

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!

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!

Thin feel. Not too bitter. Sweetish.
Really big head that lasts 20 minutes.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
