COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uber Goober is a highly coveted Oatmeal Stout that has the largest grain bill in the entire Short’s beer portfolio. Uber Goober has roughly a handful of peanuts in every glass, which creates the rich aromas of chocolate nuttiness. Creamy oatmeal, fused with peanut puree in this beer, coincides perfectly with the caramel and roasted grain flavors of the malt.

Thanks to my man from Michigan who shared this at Pre Sex. Been wanting to try this for a while, so much obliged. The pour was a bit on the dingy, dusky side, not particularly appealing. But the slightly tangy nutty aroma - natural peanut goop, not Skippy - was fairly nice. Roasted malts component was a bit understated, and I felt that a little more boldness here would have improved the desired effect a bit. Overall a fun beer though.

Dark, nearly black without much of a head. Nose of oatmeal, chocolate, and peanuts. Bread and caramel. Tasty and unique.

Sammy (9527) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle from the new 6-pack seasonal. Tremendous roast aroma, black with fabulous brown head. Carbonation is right there. The taste is very sour, I cannot imagine that this is intentional. Yes, peanut, yes stout. But sour? Above average mouthfeel, but sour is one step backward for me, one big step backward for the masses.

emacgee (4376) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours a viscous dark black with a one finger dark brown head. Nose is nice and roasty, bakers chocolate, creamy, coffee, peanut butter. Flavor is roasty with strong chocolate and coffee with a definitive peanut character, mild tartness. Palate is a bit slick with a low carbonation, viscous.

dchmela (2822) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Thansk to cheeseman for the pour. Dark brownish black pour. Peanut malt aroma, a little sharp. Nice roasted taste, chocolate, nuts and smooth oats in the taste. Good stuff.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even the faintest bit of lighter colored hints when held to a light source and a two finger dark chocolate mocha brown head that immediately disappears leaving no lacing behind. Slightly roasted dark malt aroma with plenty of sweet and bitter dark chocolate, oatmeal, nut and licorice. It smells pretty sweet but there is an underlying roasted peanut scent. Lots of tight carbonation up front and it is slightly infected/oxidizes with lots of sweetness and slight tart flavor. There are some nice silky chocolate notes that are slightly roasted. Prominent oatmeal presence along with some toffee and licorice and a smooth slightly creamy roasted peanut favor.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle thanks to Blutt59. Pours a very nice black with a tan head. Aroma of nice dark roast, light iodine, some baking cocoa. Flavor is kinda sour, some dark roast. Mouth feel is medium body with low-medium carbonation. Over all, there is something wrong with this, possibly infected bottle.

Cavie (4042) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle courtesy of blutt59. Dark brown color. Bread brown head. Smell is huge brown coffee smell with a heavy peanut butter smell. Taste is largely peanut brittle. Dry finish, like grandma used to make. Some tart smack but not sure if it’s intentional. Gets much more sour as it warms.
