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 given to me by a friend. In fact, he gave me five because he didnít care for it. Pours black with a thin tan head. To my knowledge thereís no coffee in this beer, but it has that green bell note in the nose that a lot of coffee beers have. Also has peanut butter and chocolate notes. So far so good. Flavor starts with chocolate and peanut butter as expected, but finishes thin, tart and acidic. Infection is setting in. Not sure if this is common with this beer, or itís just a bad batch.

Bottle. Dark brown pour. Malt, light roastiness, sweetness, peanut, and slightly creamy. Itís fine. Another odd Shorts release, but itís not a train wreck.

Dark mahogany bordering black with a cashew colored head. Aroma is pretty wild and shows Peanut M&Mís, Payday, and Snickers. Flavor shows milk chocolate, salted caramel, and roasted peanuts. Peanut isnít aggressive but shows up on the back end. Nice medium mouthfeel. Crazy but good or crazy good?

(12oz bottle from rayl101!). Pours near black/dark brown with thin khaki head. Aroma has lots of peanut, peanut shell along with some dark chocolate/cocoa nibs. Smells very rich. Taste is roasty bitter, but the sweet, slightly tangy malts quickly cancel out the roast. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. The finish is dry, but not overly done. This is a well-balanced beer with several things working together pretty nicely. I think they did a good job here.

The nuttiness is very light on the aroma and almost as light on the flavor. I was hoping for peanut buttery goodness. A nice base stout though. Well balanced roasted malts and light sweetness. Light bittersweet cocoa keep it balanced.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to my brother, as always, for picking up loads of Shortís in Michigan for me. Pours a nice medium brown color with a bit of a light tan head. The nose really does bring some peanut character through with a bit of mild bread behind that. Taste is light peanut and not too much else. They hit the concept but it just doesnít do all that much for me. The feel is nice and a bit creamy, really bringing the flavor forward, which is good as there really isnít a terrible amount of flavor there. Drinks fairly well but is one dimensional.

Courtesy of markwise. Thanks! Pours a pretty dark mahogany with thin mocha like head. The aroma is just about like opening a fresh jar of car trunk warmed peanut butter. I really donít get much else beyond the legume-ness. The taste isnít as all encompassing Ďpeanutí as the nose with peanut butter, some mild chocolate, nutty maltiness and malts. It has a mild level of spicy hops that seems to reside around the edges of the flavor.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is coffee, light peanuts and...dammit, there it is again. The sour smell that means for the second year in a row Iíve fallen prey to infected Goober. Taste, lightly roasty with subtle peanut butter and yep, a foul, sour finish. Mouthfeel is unpleasantly slick and lacking in body. God, when will I frickiní learn with Shortsí oddball releases?

12oz bottle provided by Jale, who was extra generous...Black pour, only a light tan head for a second then its gone...The aroma is the star of the show, its a dead on ringer for a creamy peanut butter pie. Lightly roasted, but incredibly creamy and smooth. Shortís nailed it here...The taste loses a lot of the creamy peanut butter, still present but greatly subdued, disappointing. This is very roasted, but has a dominance of stale black coffee that is so strong that I donít even want to drink it. Monumental failure to me to not transition the aroma remotely in the taste. Worth giving a shot if you like peanut butter, canít say anything wonderful things about how real the aroma is. Just doesnít carry over to the taste, which wouldnít be bad if was tastey itself, but its not.

Pours black head disappears quickly, but while it was there is a nice caramel color. Light peanut, burnt hay, light coffee. Taste is bitter. Palate is creamy peanut butter, roasted coffee, creamy, flat carbonation.
