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.

ScipioA (366) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Standard porter appearance: deep opaque brown with a thick tan head. Smells like roast malts and rye bread. The flavor is dark chocolate with some bitterness. There’s an odd "stale" aftertaste that detracts from the beer. Thick but smooth with restrained carbonation. Good porter, and great that it’s canned. Canned porters seem really tough to find for some reason.

GIJOE (767) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours black with a foamy tan head. Nose is roasted malts with a hint of cocoa. Taste is sweet with a slightly dry bitter dark chocolate finish. A bit on the thin side for me, but tasty porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cheap (4429) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2015
OK, my can says robust, not raincloud but there is a raincloud on the can, whatever. Nice big black pour. Got this can from the beer store in Nashua. A thin creamy head resides on top. Nice smooth porter or stout aromas. Somewhat tastes like a more mild impy stout. Almost Baltic but not quite. Yes, lets you know its near 7% but fairly well reserved. Has somewhat of a burnt texture to it. Alky finish is apparent. I guess that’s why its said to be robust, heheh.

PapaSkeetSkeet (997) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Black with 2mm of medium-fine light brown head that is medium-fast to fade. Aroma is mineral-grass, light bbq, some chocolate, hint of forest. Body is medium light with medium carbonation, somewhat fat bubbles, medium burn, big for the carbonation, enhances the body. Not creamy, distinct bubbles, fat prickle. Flavor is semi-sweet, woody bbq with light caramel and herbal pine. Touch of grapefruit. No chocolate. Slight mineral. Hint of smokiness to the wood. A very good, enjoyable porter. I particularly like that slightly smoky wood in the flavor.

rjplumer (595) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Roasted coffee chocolate malt aroma. Pitch black body with a tan head which levels quick to a thin film. Dry roasted flavor with some mild bitterness. Some sweet caramel in the background. Pleasant and not overpowering in anyway.

Bebum (430) - - NOV 20, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Opaque, thick lace. Full body, intensely flavored, silky texture, medium carbonation, low alcohol heat, forever lingering palate. Very bitter, not too dry, just right acidity, wonderfully balanced at the top of the dial. Coffee and other dry roast flavors, hint of smoke. A big beer, almost a stout, my favourite porter despite some similarity with Guiness.
