COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uber Goober is a highly coveted Oatmeal Stout that has the largest grain bill in the entire Shortís 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.

Bottle shared by afdempse. Thanks Adam! The beer appears a dark brown shade with a small beige head. The aroma is quite interesting, with notes of roast, light chocolate, sweet malts, dark fruits, and a prominent scent of you guessed it...peanuts. It smells like weíre gonna get drunk at the circus. The flavor brings mostly peanuts, along with some roast character and a mild funk presence. The beer is well done, albeit another wild idea from Shortís. Intriguing and fun, I enjoyed this beer and would have it again. A small sample was plenty for me, however. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-11-2011

Nice dark pour. Small tan coloured head. Chocolate peanut cigarette butt and bitter coffee aroma. Tastes better with no cigarette but some lactic sourness. Black coffee and chocolate covered peanut butter. Nice thick body. I love shorts but wasnt into this one.

Tmoney99 (10459) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate aroma. Medium sweet chocolate flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a soft sweet beer.

Bottled. A pitch black a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, malt, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of peanuts, roasted malt, and earth, leading to a dry finish. Not good.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque black with a small, dissipating beige head. Very odd but interesting aroma, peanut not so much as overripe raisins. Medium body, very rustic tart raisins and a litlte wood. Again I donít pick up any peanut whatsoever - more tart cherries. No real bitterness. An interesting infection this time from Shorts! 030612

Originally reviewed: 2/15/11. Poured into a pint glass. Iím a little hesitant with this one. The Shortís beers Iíve had have been hit or miss. The last one, PB & J, was an infected, vinegary mess. It didnít even warrant a review. So Iím crossing my fingers on this one. The pour doesnít conjure up any confidence on my end. A deep dark black, but not even the slightest bit of head or lace. Nothing. This could be motor oil for all I know. The nose is eerily similar to the last peanut butter beer of theirs I tried, and we know how that turned out. Mild cocoa, jam, and PB. Thereís a definitive tart presence that is a little off-putting. The body is moderately thick with carbonation spritzing it up midway through, then smooths out on the finish. Mild cocoa, coffee char, and the faintest of nuttiness. Sourness is ever-present. Eh. I donít like this. Maybe Iím a little gun-shy with these guys now, but this could have been so much better. Out she goes. Wonít have this again.

Michigan Winter Beer Festival. This beer REALLY tastes like peanuts and is one of the beers I had at the festival that really stood out to me. It wasnít the BEST beer Iíve had, but itís certainly a good beer and the flavor is so interesting I consider it a must-try.
