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.

12 oz bottle, pours a dark opaque with slight tinges of brown at the edges. little carbonation or head, and aroma strongly suggestive of reeseís peanut butter cups. peanut and roasted barley dominate, along with just a hint of balancing green hops bitterness. surprisingly peanutty flavored, because i assumed the nut oils wouldnít readily blend with the beer but itís certainly a neat brew and iíd revisit it, probably with dessert.

Yummy yummy in my tummy. Nice oily mouthfeel. I love peanuts. George Washington Carver approved!

Pours opaque, black, with a slight mocha head. Nose is both pleasant and frightening at the same time (whatís up with Shortís and doing this to me?) Huge amount of peanut butter notes, some saltiness, a bit of soy. I donít really get any chocolate on the nose, just salty soy nuts. Dauntingly, I take the first sip...and itís drinkable. Weird, but drinkable. Thereís the chocolate malt on the front of the palate, followed by salty nuttiness on the midtongue and more chocolate and caramel on the finish. Thinnish mouthfeel, very little carbonation, sweet, salty, imperceptible bittering.

This beer is a parlor trick, because it doesnít taste like it smells. Itís also not really my bag. A unique beer, for sure.

Pours deep black with tan head, aroma is peanuts, chocolate, some coffee. Taste is peanut butter, chocolate, roast, and a bitter finish. Wow, fantastic crazy beer.

Bottle pours black with little to no head. Aroma is lactose, ground peanuts, and dark malt. Medium mouthfeel. Flavors are lactose, a mixture of roast and ground peanuts, and finishes with a creamy malt like note.

This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light chocolate, dark roasted malts and yumy peanuts too. Flavor was not so much reeses peanut butter cup but more of a butter finger with dark chocolate. Great miz of flavors.

Poured a dark brown with no real head to speak of. Aroma was mostly roasted peanut. Flavor was peanut with some roasted malts and just a hint of chocolate. Pretty good.

I dug the PB&J, so Iím glad I got to try this (maybe I had it before I donít remember). Bottle. Man is this some tasty shit. I love peanut butter. What a gorgeous marriage of coffee, roast, chocolate and a hearty peanut butter finish. Delicious.

Bottle thanks to Styles. Pours black with brown head. Strong nose of freshly cooked peanuts, chocolate malts and coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate malts and peanuts. Hint of vanilla and coffee. Lightish body.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2011 The prominent chcolate peanuts, with roasty coffee notes is awesome! The stout pours dark chocolate with almost no head. The flavors of the chocolate peanut roastiness is smooth, but with a slightly generous medium body that goes down so smooth. Very Shortsy, as usual!
