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.

Huge thanks to the kind soul that shared this at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting (jdub? fogdog?). Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, peanut, peanut shells, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is similar: slightly peanut-forward but the chocolate shines right behind it to make it a nice team effort instead of a peanut party. Very nice.

Dark brown, oily, no head. Aroma is full of peanuts/peanut butter, chocolate, light coffee, might be mental, but swear I’m getting grape. Flavor is mostly chocolate, light coffee, nutty character is there, but nowhere near aroma. Oliy mouthfeel.

12oz bottle from deyholla, thanks Derek! Pours a black body with a thin, fizzy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing throughout. Aroma is straight up rich peanut butter. A bit of a sour fruit with some coffee, chocolate, and cream. Flavor is similar with the sourness sticking out more. Still lots of rich, creamy peanut butter with lots of dry roasts and coffee. Some more chocolate and cream before the sourness increases slightly in a very dry, roasty, bitter finish. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and moderate carbonation. Overall, another interesting beer from these guys. Lots of roast, plenty of peanut butter, and a solid malt balance, but I don’t really like the sour fruit a whole lot. Its not overly distracting, but enough for me to bump this down a bit.

changeup45 (1719) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle from Styles. Lots of peanut in the aroma along with chocolate, toasted hazelnut, wheat, and a slight fruity presence. This kind of smells like the PB&J, with of course less jam. The pour is nearly flat and black with just a pencil thin head slowly developing. Roasty flavors; milk chocolate, and plenty of nutty notes here, although not specifically peanuts, like the aroma which is all peanut. The palate is silky with a creamy coating, seemingly from the oatmeal. A bit lactic as well. Imperial Stout the label says? No. But this is a very good all around Sweet Stout. Thanks Chris.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with only a trace of a light brown head. Roasted peanuts with a faint sour aroma. Nice components of a traditional dry stout up front with lots of roasted malt and a hint of tart coffee. Big dry roasted peanut flavor in the finish with a peanut butter sweetness lingering on the lips. Creamy and slightly dry in texture. Perfectly carbonated despite its flat appearance. Nice, easy drinking stout from the good folks at Shorts!

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Aroma was full of peanuts, big salty nuts with a hint of roasted malts. Black syrupy pour. Thick with no head or lacing. Taste was slightly salty, a lot of the peanut aroma really came through in the flavor. It was incredible.

strongpieman (1556) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle. Thick, black, creamy, but also carbonated. The aroma is powerful roasted peanuts. There is some bit in the back of the throat. Taste includes some bitterness and just a little sweetness. Good to try, but not one I’d really go back to other than in a sampler.

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle pours deep brown/black with a khaki head. Aroma smells just like a bag of peanuts. Salty husks and slight roast also follow through in the flavor with an additional touch of chocolate. It’s definately interesting, just not quite my thing. Overall body is moderate for a stout and relatively salty for a sweet stout.

wedgie9 (2487) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Tasted on 1/5/11 from a 12oz bottle sent to me in a trade, bottled on 11/1/10. Pours an almost purple black color with just a hint of tan lace that quickly recedes to no head or lace whatsoever. The nose is just like smelling peanut butter on fresh wheat bread with dark caramel, brown sugar, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet caramel malt and brown sugar up front, moving to the same peanut butter on wheat bread that I described on the nose, with a nice roasted bitter note on the back. The body is medium, but rich and creamy, with light but stinging carbonation and a long peanut butter and roasted malt finish.

Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma of peanut shells and roasted malt. Flavor of roasty malt with peanuts on the finish. Pretty good stuff!
