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.

Pours dark brown with a bit of brown head. I get all of the coffee and chocolate and oats in the nose. All the aromas are there but not as pronounced as a Breakfast Sout. Medium body with a big coffee finish.

2008 MBG Winter Fest: Deep brown hue with a frothy beige head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, peanut, plum, anise, herbal hops, toasted malt, oatmeal and a hint of coffee esters. The taste is a cool balance of fruit, chocolate, and toasted malts (not much peanut on the palate). Some grassy and herbal notes as well along with some coffee. The mouth feel is lush and oily, medium-bodied and very smooth. A nice beer and twist on the style. Mikey Likey.

Actual peanuts used huh? Great. This kind of comes out like a Reese’s with peanuts that linger with you for a bit longer than when the beer is gone. Roasty and creamy. I only wish it had a higher alcohol bill to toast this peanut butter sammy.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured an opaque black color. Head was light tan. Aroma was of toffee, nuts, and roasted malt. Full bodied and slightly sweet on the tongue. I tasted toffee and chocolate mostly, but there were some subdued nuts, especially in the aftertaste.

64oz Growler This is my first taste of Short’s. Uber Goober Oatmeal Stout is black. So black not a hint of light shines through even when directly backlit. There was even some gurgling as I filled my glass from the growler. A dense creamy two finger milk chocolate head formed on the pour that fell to a solid cap and left great spiderwebbed lacing on it’s way down. It’s my understanding that this was brewed with peanut puree and after sticking my nose in the glass it certainly appears that way. Strong initial aroma of crushed peanuts with the husk (is that the right word? not the shells but the skins) on them. As the nuttiness fades bakers chocolate shows up along with a touch of freshly brewed coffee. The finish brings along a moderate roastiness and a ghost like hint of alcohol. My original score for the smell was 4 but as this beer warms the the roastiness and coffee combine with the chocolate creating a combo of chocolate peanut butter. Excellent! I was a little longwinded in why description of the smell so I’ll keep it short here. Quick flash of peanut butter up front before being overtaken by dark chocolate and fresh brewed coffee. These two combine to be soft and not overwhelming. Before you know it the peanut butter and chocolate come back on the finish along with a solid roastiness. Really interesting and delicious oatmeal stout. Mouthfeel is spot on for the style. The oatmeal gives a great velvety smoothness from front to back. The body is full without being heavy. The roastiness on the finish leaves a balancing bitterness. This beer is supremely sippable. The velvety smoothness really helps things along. It got blustery cold all of a sudden and this is a good choice to drink away an evening such as tonight. This is my first taste of Shorts brewing thanks to Hoppymeal. An excellently brewed oatmeal stout with the uniqueness to make it a step above the rest. Hopefully I can get my hands on some more from Short’s down road. Thanks again Derek! 1/30/08

A creamy peanut butter sandwich, makes me think of what the founders breakfast stout kid must eat for lunch. Nice and smooth with some roasted bitterness in the finish.
