I like it, but I'm not sure I like it any more than sweet baby jesus which it tastes exactly the same as... but at twice the price.

Had this on tap at Jungle Jim's Friday Pint Night. Could barely finish it; was like drinking liquified peanuts, I like peanuts, but not a whole pint of them! I think I will stick to drinking beers that taste like beer.

Poured on Nitro at the Listermann's/Triple Digit brewery. Peanut butter is more dominant than chocolate, and more nutty than butter. But overall very impressive

Just....holy shit...
Probably the best porter I have ever had the pleasure of drinking, its so smooth....smooth is probably an understatement.
The beer thick... oily...buttery..... and damn is it good.... I almost wanted to try serving this warm instead of cold.
The peanut flavor is hidden inside the beer, coming a few seconds after the beer has been in your mouth.
however the smell is not hidden at all, it lets you know the business right off the bat.
I can taste that peanut malt flavor in my mouth an hour after drinking this beer and I love it.
Nutcase is a great name for this offering!

Had on-tap at the Yard House in Cincinnati. Poured into a pint glass.

L: Clear dark mahogany brown pour. Nearly black with 2 fingers of foamy tannish head.

S: Roast grains and peanut butter. Earthy.

T/F: Semi-sweet roasted. Cocoa and espresso, and a sstrong peanut butter flavor towards the finish. Nutty and earthy. Mild hopping saves it from being cloying. Medium bodied... perhaps a little thin for a peanut butter themed beer.

O: This delivers what it promises..... so if you like porters and enjoy peanut butter... chances are you'll enjoy this brew. A fun treat but not one I'd drink every day.

Poured into a Wicked Weed snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Intense creamy peanut butter aroma. Sweet and milky.

T- Taste is nutty as well but isn't quite like the aroma as there are other things in play like vanilla and milk chocolate. Kind of like a peanut butter dessert but there's enough roastiness to keep it from being cloying. Also the ABV is hidden quite well.

M- Typical porter feel with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side. Also slightly slick.

O- Pretty good for what it is, but not something I would reach for more than once.

12oz silk-screened bottle marked 6.7% ABV, no discernible date.

Pours a very dark brown with quite a bit of light coming through the edges. A fluffy khaki head sticks around for a little while and then thins quite a bit, but at least stays throughout the beer. Mouthfeel is pretty average for the style, but the flavor is what is distracting.

Aroma is of peanut, sweet malt and a slight metallic tinge I always seem to find present in these sort of brews, nonetheless, very pleasing. The flavor is much the same, but a bit cloying on the sweet malt side. I won't knock it on the fact that it seems to stick around on your palate, as you should probably expect that from a dessert beer like this.

Overall, I found this very tasty and would recommend that you try if you ever get a chance.

Pours a dark chocolate color. Aroma is nutty. Flavor is peanut butter with a nice roasty malt profile. Has a medium body mouthfeel and overall very good.
