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.

Beauty of a dark beast. Looks like it’s going to be heavy and it turns out to have this spike in the flavor

2013-08-16. Black body with a small tan head. 3++ Lightly roasty aroma over dark malt core, bit off coffee like notes, and coffee beans. 6+ Flavour is similar, dark malt base with coffee bean like roast accents. Average plus bodied palate. Not to my taste. Can at Campground Brewdown.

Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin to medium sized beiged tan head. Big roast, cocoa, chocolate on the nose. Medium-bodied, roast, coffee, chocolate. Cocoa and soft sweet roast into the finish, cocoa and just the faintest hint of paper.

BroSpud (1684) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Can. Poured into a goblet glass. Dark brown almost black pour with a dark tan head that leaves a small amount of lacing. This was the third Foolproof I have tried and the only one so far that is actually half decent. It’s a straight forward porter, a bit on the thin side but no off flavors and quite drinkable. Roasted malt flavors without too much sweetness and a nice bitterness.

jkwood04 (3872) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12oz can in an English pint. Pours near black with a small, tan head. Aroma of chocolate and lightly roasted malts, some floral hops, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

andyhwcinc (1434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont, MA; enjoyed at home after getting back from vacation, preparing for the impending work week. Appearance is ptich black, moderate to thin consistency, with a great tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in roasted chocolate malt, light coffee, as well as light hop bitterness, smells wonderful. Taste goes down with a nice roasted dryness, chocolate notes, light coffee bitterness. This is a pretty straightforward porter, but it’s done pretty well, very good stuff.

Best of the three beers offered by this company. Pours about a finger of head, and is dark but not black. Robust smell,roasty.Taste was similar to the nose, a little thin.

auerbrau (3166) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 20, 2013
12oz Bottle. Charred and roast malt aroma. Straightforward. Cocoa and coffee meet ashiness and some strange, roving citrus qualities (the hops?). There’s a glassy, filtered-feeling quality to the body that leaves this a little thin and cola and soda-like. The roast ashiness is definitely out of balance and needs some malt texture to support it. Otherwise, no major off-flavors. The better of the three initial releases from Foolproof.
