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.

Pours nearly black with a tan head. Very little in the way of aroma, but flavors of roasted to burnt coffee.

DATE TASTED: November 21, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Guiness pint... OCCASION: much work was done today...and after the Brew Fest at Tom’s house--50(!) six-packs were shared--I am in midseason beer form... APPEARANCE: from a can, the beer pours a storm-black body and fills the 16 oz. glass with thick brown head that settles patiently; the end leaves a nice pattern of soapy tracings, while the remaining head forms a foamy island... AROMA: light, toasted notes mingle with earthy,peaty elements and a doughy strength to support the beer’s rainy day companion theme... PALATE: heavy, full-bodied and brackish--wearing its 6.5 ABV rather loudly...again, its intentions are to warm and to stoke, and the palate forwards this, albeit with some unsavory elements...TASTE: immediate sensation of pepper, chocolate and toasted malts; some alcohol is present--especially in the aftertaste...some hops make for a livelier nuance, but the toasted malts--bitter coffee is present too--are the dominant experience OVERALL: another rerouted gift from Uncle Mark, and thanks to the Beer of the Month club, I enjoyed another beer I might not have crossed otherwise...seeking objective tasting, I find the beer challenges more than a "lazy day" might warrant, and while the pepper and peat do their diligence, the off-putting flavors downgrade the experience slightly...

Intrigued enough by the peanut butter version of this, I figured I better try the regular version. This was poured into an English pint glass. The appearance was a two finger off white to tan foamy head that rose above the glass in a rocky sort of way. It dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing was in and around the glass. The smell sounded off with a subtle roast breaking through a robust cocoa flavor. Light bitter coffee bean melds into the aroma. The taste moderately lingered between roasty coffee and cocoa beans. On the palate, this one has a nice medium bodied feel letting the robust lay it down cold on my tongue. Overall, I’d say this was a good porter that I would have again.

Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is opaque black pour, beige ring of head, decent lacing. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is a little smoky, with some bitterness, and sweet chocolate. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, finish is nice mix of balanced bitter and sweet. Overall, solid porter all around. Generally, I like a porter to have a little heavier body/texture, but there is something nice about having a full flavored beer that isn’t quite as heavy.

Dark cola - colored beer with a billowing dark beige head that subsides quicker than expected. Nose of brown sugar, medium coffee grounds, and vinegar. Flavor is rich with cocoa powder, mocha, and burnt toast that leaves a residual charred bitterness on the tongue. Good beer.

Beer of month club. Pours a dark brown with big foam head from a can. Nose is somewhat smoky with some coffee notes. Taste is roasted malt, a lot of smokiness, some bitterness, and a metallic like taste mixed in (kinda weird). Still, a solid porter - more bitter than a typical one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
