My first Rhode Island beer!

Pours a drk beown, with a low, firm head.

Smell is malty with a nice dose of coffee and licorice.

Nice, smooth taste, more chocolate than coffee, but still with a bit of salt licorice.

Body is medium, with good viscosity. Carbonation is right on.

A very nice robust porter, where robust really is the key word.

Raincloud Robust Porter has an unusually foamy, beige head, a dark brown appearance, and heavy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of black cherries, chocolate powder, and dark-roasted malt. Taste is of char, dark malt, black bread, faint coffee, and faint chocolate powder. An acidic note is present, as well. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Raincloud finishes on the dry side of it.

Totally blindsided by how delicious this was. It made me a porter fan. It was dark, heavy, and had a strong aroma. Didn't have a coffee taste that I've gotten from other porters. Very strong, I would highly recommend for any porter fans.

Pours black (duh, its a robust porter)
Slight roast, chocolate, slight minerality on the nose.
Drinks a bit thinner than I would like, (yeah I know it isn't a stout)
but feels like it needs like 10% moar body.
Very solid but unspectacular. A beer that id buy to drink without the think.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with very little head and no lacing.

Smell is primarily a roasted malt aroma with some touches of coffee.

Taste starts out with a roasted malt presence and some sugary sweetness, aftertaste is balanced a bit by a coffee bitterness without being too much or too little.
