A - Poured into a tulip glass with some fervor. Tan colored head with pitch black body. Head is fluffy and bubbly, and fades after a few minutes, but never disappears entirely. Thick lacing all around glass.
S - The smell is INCREDIBLE. It smells like a peanut butter cup! I can literally taste the peanuts, so intense. Some hints of milk chocolate and a few hints of salt, but the peanut butter is the big player here.
T - Tastes just like it smells. Huge showing from the peanut butter. Saltiness like salted, roasted peanuts. Flavors of milk chocolate, toffee, some caramel, a hint of hazelnut, some twangs of saltine cracker and maybe even some chocolate fudge heaviness. The peanut butter is heaviest on the way down, like having a mouthful of fresh roasted peanuts, absolutely delicious!
M - Very thick, even a little sticky. Very good, coats the walls of my mouth with chocolate peanut butter goodness and hangs on for dear life.
O - A unique and novel beer. But a unique and novel beer done extremely well. The flavors are intense and natural, the color and look are perfect, and most importantly, it truly lives up to its name. I couldn't resist shouting out its namesake after my first sip. It truly is a wonderful porter, and a must have for any fans of chocolate, peanut butter, and dark beers.

I asked the bartender @ McMenamin's Tavern in Mount Airy (Philadelphia) which was his favourite beer on tap, and he recommended this one. Just 2 words: OH, WOW. A chocolate-peanut butter stout. Basically, this felt like I was drinking an alcoholic, fizzy peanut butter cup.
Appearance: Lovely, just lovely- deep, dark black.
Smell: To be honest, the smell didn't really hint too much as to what was coming.
Taste: Here's where I said OH, WOW. You get a bit of maltiness with just a hint of hops, but the dominant taste is of the chocolate and, yes, peanut butter. I would never have dreamed that this would work, but, WOW, does it ever.
Mouthfeel: Amazingly, this beer didn't have anywhere near the heavy mouthfeel that I'd expected, given the taste.
I'm not sure I'd want to drink too many of these at a time- despite the reasonable ABV, it's definitely a dessert beer, not a session one. But, I'll DEFINITELY be ordering another one next time I see it on tap.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
Pours near pitch black with a finger of mocha foam. Aroma is overwhelmingly peanut butter... it smell just like a Reese's Peanut Butter cup.
First sip is a rush of peanut flavor, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Bitterness lingers on the tongue. I wish there was more than that, but this tastes like roasted peanuts. The burnt roasty finish complements it well.
This is an interesting change of pace beer. At first I was skeptical, but this really pulls off the peanut butter flavor well, and somehow makes it seem like it has always belonged.
