3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of alcohol (surprisingly strong for 6.5%), chocolate, coffee, and peanuts. It pours a dark with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate and light coffee. The finish has some light peanut flavors, a hint if fruit, and some noticeable alcohol. It’s hard to believe this is only 6.5%. Medium-full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel.

Tap. Poured black with a deep brown head. Aroma was full of peanut notes (very peanut butter like) with an undertone of oats and dark malts. Flavor did a good job of balancing the the nuttiness from the peanuts with the dark malts and oats.

Draft. What can i say this is a treat. Mahogany body with a tan head. Chocolate and peanut character, chewy and full toasted malt character with a nutty accent and some sweet vanilla. Wow someone grab the cheesecake, i’ll bring the goober.

In short: A splendid roasted chocolaty session stout
How: Tap at Boston Extreme Beer Fest 2009
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Chocolate cake nose. The beer tastes very roasted, more so than usual for an oatmeal stout. Despite the high roastiness the body remains smooth and velvety just the way I like it in oatmeal stouts. Flavour of a black chocolate cake with a little vanilla ice-cream on top and a few roasted almonds. More satisfying than the more hyped Sexual Chocolate that I had next to it. If all Shorts were that nice puzzl would give his cellar to the less fortunates. And buy them pizza in case the his beers give them the munchies.

Courtesy GodofThunder. Deep dark almost black pour, short khaki head. Very interesting peanut and nougat aroma, peanut butter cup flesh, also a very, very light roast component in the background. Roast and slight sweetness to start the taste, then the peanut taste comes in. The peanut aroma was unique and just enough comes out in the taste to satisfy. A very unique brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler thanks to Hopdog. Nice deep dark brown almsot black with a thinning off beige head. Aroma is less on the PB than I had on tap at EBF a couple years ago- more earthy and dirt yeasty like this time with more phenols and only a slight chocolate pb going on. Roasted barley flavor charred black malt earthy dirty and some chocolate malt, phenolic dirty yeast, adn soem stale harsh pb and medicinal character. Somewhat prickly finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler, courtesy of GodofThunder. Opaque black-brown with small tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malt and Reece’s. Smooth, silky mouthfeelt has a slight oiliness. Not as much peanut butter in the flavors. Instead a nice roast comes out and almost tastes like a coffee stout. Not bad!

Growler, courtesy GodofThunder
Trivia time: ’goober’ is the gullah word for peanut, and has its origins in West African languages. Dark brown with a slight haze. Definite peanut buttery nose - not much else. Very roasty on the palate with light peanut butter that gets stronger as it goes. Roasty, bitter finish. The nuts and stout never really came together for me.

Poured an opaque black color with a small tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, roast, cocoa, oats, and vanilla bean. Taste of rolled oats, roasted malts, chocolate, smoke, nuts, and caramel. This was quite nutty.
