A dark pour with a thin white head this beer provides a nice taste with a hint of a caffeinated taste. This provides a very new taste that is refreshing and bitter. Love revival and all of their flavors.

Revival Night Swimíah
A beautiful and clear look with a refreshing hoppy and citrusy scent, this beer is a true refreshing IPA. It lacks the traditional bitterness, which is perfect for me, and it has a thin body allowing you to down a few and not feel too heavy. The pour is clear and clean with a small white head. Love revival and love this addition.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a thin light tan head. Nose is super creamy, milk chocolate, just awesome. Taste is milk chocolate, chocolate milk, brown sugar, smith creamy. Great. This is awesome. Maybe a bit thin? But really that just means it drinks like it's a lot less boozy. I wouldn't go into it looking for a gooey imperial stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 thereís 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 donít drink coffee so Iíll grab a coffee stout and read up on the style in this rainy Thursday. This is Revival Brewing Co.ís White Electric Coffee Stout 8.5% They seem to be imported through American Craft Beer Pantry which Iíve 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 itís surprisingly complex. Worth trying but the 900• price tag means itís 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.
