Dark, smells a small hint of peanut butter. First taste leaves you wondering. Second taste makes you think maybe.. Third taste has you sold. This is delicious as a stand alone beer unless you had a jelly sandwich. I have had on tap and in the can.. Still very good!! A must try!!

looks awesome poured into a glass.... smells like Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter cereal! very smooth, but with a slightly funky flavor although it is not as prevalent as other PB'ers like that Beaver Company in SD..... this PB flavor is way more authentic... overall, a very decent brew!

I love Peanut Butter... mmmmm. The two beers I've tried have been a mixed bag, the Terrapin Variety I had tried in Florida was a bit artificial tasting while Funky Buddha knocked it out of the park with one of the better novelty beers I've ever had.

I found this in NH today and got a can, not sure when it was canned but I'm excited to try it.

It pours a dark black with modest head, I vaguely get the malty roast smell but no peanut butter on the nose. Artificial peanut butter tasting this beer is absolutely not, so check one box off under very promising. I haven't tried the raincloud porter alone but the body of this beer is wonderful, even without the peanut butter caveat this porter would hold up. The peanut butter is light but present on the back end.

The mouthfeel is great, better than many of the big dogs like Victory at Sea even... Full and thick. Proper for a porter, low carbonation and silky like peanut butter should be.

This is a very enjoyable brew. I wish I had bought more than one can to keep in the cellar!

one of the best beers i have had in a long time. Most PB beers are not very good, but whatever Foolproof is doing to make this (Better?) version of their already great Raincloud, i want to know!

Beer feels like a nice porter going down, with a nice thickness to it.

Smells wonderful, with a small note of nuttiness like one would want in a PB beer.

Tastes like PB right from the start, and the aftertaste is a smelly blend of porters and nuttiness. Aftertaste is the best part is you truly feel like you had a PB beer, and an awesome Porter with some complex flavors.

Beer has a great look to it, although it does lack a thick creamy head, something that could add a "milkshake" ness to the drinking feeling. Imagine PB Raincloud on a Nitro tap would be just what the doctor ordered.

4.75/5 (not a 5 because i can never find it in store, only seen it on tap at Oktoberfest in Prov 2015).. so get some in the Southern MA stores guys!!
