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.

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.

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.

12oz can pours a watery black with some spitty, off white head. Nose is odd, trashy, dirty coffee pot, soil, malt, molasses. Flavor is a little better, malty, bready, toast, milk chocolate. Dry finish.

berkshirejohn (4674) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
12oz bottle from Georgio’s, Billerica, MA. A lively pour of an opaque pitch black beer with a billowing light tan head; there’s a rich chocolate aroma; in the mouth it’s smooth with a caramel and coffee taste; then a dry and fruity finish. A decent porter.
