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 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.

ElbowRocker (13) - - SEP 16, 2014
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.

mcox90 (1563) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Sampled at Blues and Brews. Pours dark brown with a one finger tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and brown bread on the nose. Semi sweet taste with some bakers chocolate, black coffee and a light dose of hops. Medium bodied. and drinkable.

50belair (2355) - 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 (8617) - 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.

madnorwegian (58) - FRANCE - AUG 15, 2014
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.

mikedR (1270) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Solid, and borders on spectacular. Don’t get the low ratings on this guy. Porters can be tough, as stouts’ little brothers. This one is solidly flavorful. Nothing brings attention to itself. Instead, one gets a beautiful medley of the flavors that are expected from this style, in abundance, and superbly balanced.

Draft at the source. Very dark maroon brown color, brown head. Aroma of coffee grounds and burnt espresso. Taste is very roasty dark cocoa and coffee.
