COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Experience: It’s pouring outside, so pour yourself something inside... Raincloud is the perfect “stay at home” brew. Dark, smooth, mysterious—this rich and flavorful porter is brewed with chocolate and crystal malts and a subtle blend of European hops. Raincloud is the ideal accompaniment for a lazy day of movie watching or reading.

Opaque, thick lace. Medium, almost full body, full flavored, medium carbonation, low alcohol heat, lingering palate. Very bitter, not too dry, balanced. Coffee, malty. Almost a stout, a favourite porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can. Pours a very dark brown color, thin brown head. Nose is lots of dry roasting and coffee ground notes to it.

Taste is mildly bitter and a little burnt chocolate malt, with some nice coffee and roasting to it. Molasses and cocoa notes in the back side of the sip. The body is medium plus with a nice dry roast texture. Nice drinker.

Can to glass. Pours an opaque black with tan head and fine lacing. Aroma is mild, with roast and chocolate coming to the front. Mouth is medium, thinner than expected but not bad. Flavor is complex, with coffee and burnt sugar notes as well as the aroma flavors. Finishes slightly sweet / tart. Pretty good porter.

50belair (2455) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at The White Horse Tavern. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Coffee and dark roasted malt bouquet. Dark roasted malt and expresso notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Slight bitterness which I suspect is from the dark roasted malts as opposed to hops. Above average body and mouthfeel. A real solid porter.

Drake (8616) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12 ounce can courtesy of Travlr. Thanks! Pours a very dark brown color with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of big roast and chocolate notes, some nuts, caramel and citrus hops. The taste is roast, chocolate, a briny note, mild hops. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness, low carbonation. Nice beer, a little different, but quite nice.

Lots of stuff going on here. Deep black, with tan head. Chocolate and coffee aromas that show up nive and clear when tasted. Also a smokiness to this beer. Very dry which keeps it refreshing unlike some porter that are a little sweet. Very flavorful and complex.
