Revival Night Swim’ah
Bottle from Craft Beer Cellar (Amesbury). Best By December ticked on the side label. Slightly hazy gold color with fast dying white head. Aroma is orange zest, yeast, and very weak berry hints.

Light yeast character with a effervescent mouth feel. Lighter in body with a light lingering hint of berries in the finish. Simple and straight forward fruited Wit beer.

Revival What Cheer
(22 oz. bottle) Crisp grass grain aroma. Clear golden body with a fast disappearing head. Has a clean grassy grain taste. It is a little bit tart and bitter. Smooth and very drinkable. Has a refreshing clean finish. On a side note when poured from the bottle it appears to have little or no carbonation although you could feel it when you drank it. I thought it had more head and fizz at the brewery where I first tasted it. Not a deal breaker but an observation.

Revival White Electric Coffee Stout
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is very dark brown with finger-width creamy light brown head with decent retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is rich chocolate, dark fruit, roasted coffee--maybe a little burnt. Taste is early sweet dark fruit and chocolate with late lightly bitter roasted coffee. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, soft-to-average carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, nice aroma and taste--palate could be a little thicker to be more decadent, though there’s something strangely nice about full taste without being quite so filling.

Revival Double Black IPA - Bourbon Barrel aged
Picked this up at Brewtopia in Cranston, RI. Pours black with a thick caramel head. Aroma is of malts, yeast, hops, oak, bourbon, and some cloves. Heavier, oil slick palate with some carbonation. Flavor is of malts, oak, hops, yeast, apple, and some roastiness. Leaves a toasty oaked malt finish. This is kind of like a Belgian/IPA in my opinion. Different but good.

Revival White Electric Coffee Stout
Bottle in Japan, how the hell did this RI beer wind up here? Time for a coffee break but I don’t drink coffee so I’ll grab a coffee stout and read up on the style in this rainy Thursday. This is Revival Brewing Co.’s White Electric Coffee Stout 8.5% They seem to be imported through American Craft Beer Pantry which I’ve never heard of. I got it on Rakuten. Served in my stout glass it poured a deep black with a rusty tan head. The aroma is really good: big freshly ground coffee, some sweetness and a toffee type edge to it. Full bodied with a velvety mouthfeel that coats my tastebuds with bitter coffee goodness. You get a sweet coffee berry hit, then roasted coffee, tobacco leaf, leather and then just a bit of sweet chocolate syrup in the finish. This is delivering lots of coffee and it’s surprisingly complex. Worth trying but the 900¥ price tag means it’s more of an occasional treat.

Semi-sweet chocolate and toasted almond dominate from start to finish. Bitterness (85 IBU hard to believe), citrus, pine and floral notes could kicked be up a notch or two. Good.

Revival Juliet 484 Stout
Got in a BIF from tasterschoice62. 22 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, leather, tobacco, herbal, wood, licorice, raisin, prune, light peat smoke, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, leather, tobacco, herbal, wood, licorice, raisin, prune, light peat smoke, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, leather, tobacco, herbal, wood, licorice, raisin, prune, light peat smoke, and yeast/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and fruity yeast flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Russian imperial stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Revival Conga Imperial IPA
Aroma - Very hoppy, floral, piney with a hint of stone fruit and spice. Appearance - Bright, golden orange with a fluffy white to off white head. Taste - Up front hops balanced by the malt and rye spice that works very well together. Slight warming from the alcohol but very balanced and hop forward. Everything an IPA pushing 10.5% should be. Palate - Medium to lite mouth feel, dry beer that finishes without much residual sweetness. Well fermented and crisp. Overall - If this was available in Florida, this would be a go to double IPA for me. It’s delicious and refreshing. It’s all the great things a west coast IPA has brewed in the north east.

Sweet, bitter, crisp, well balanced. Roast flavors predominate, as expected, tar, coffee, milk chocolate, lactose, hoppy, yeasty, resiny, malty. Superb, what a discovery! And a local brewery.

12oz bottle pours a dark, almost black but brown around the edges and a brown head. Smells heavily like coffee beans and a little bit of vanilla bean. Thick, relatively low carbonation but it’s there. Tastes of dark coffee, pretty overwhelming actually. Dark and roasted coffee, no milk or sugar, quite bitter. Nothing too special but I like it.

Liquide assez foncé, couleur pêche, avec une mousse crème en surface. Notes de pamplemousse et d’abricots, en nez. Les malts caramel sont ici brillamment balancés avec les houblons, au demeurant costauds, rappelant presqu’une IPA tant l’amertume est de la partie. Elle frôle la perfection pour son style. Délicieuse.

Le liquide est bien jaune, doré mais avec des relents d’orangé ; le nez de cette bière plutôt claire pour le style est assez floral, un peu de paille avec de la banane en arrière-plan. Elle présente une bouche très maltée, avec la signature de levure en retrait, et il en résulte une bière étonnamment ronde. Haute buvabilité. Une belle weizen originale, qui appuie sur des caractéristiques un peu différentes. Et c’est bien apprécié, de façon générale.
