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.

Bottle thanks to Tim. We were warned that this was probably off, and it was, but in a nice way I thought. Anyway, pours a dark black color with a medium brown head- looks appealing. The aroma is nutty, coffee, toasted malts. The flavor was loads of coffee, rich nutty flavors, lots of unintended sourness, rich caramel. I liked it. I need to try it uninfected for sure.

Thanks to Timbo for sharing this beer.
This was the 3rd Shorts beer we had and was told that Shorts had a large amount of infected Uber Goobers. Unfortunately this beer was infected and I hate to say it, but a drain pour.....
Appearance: It poured a dark brown with very little head or lacing
Not sure if I should even rate this, but I hope to try another one and rerate it. The other Shorts beers were great, looking forward to trying more.

12oz bottle from suzyg. Pours a thin black with a crazy alki seltzer head...infected? Earthy peanut butter riding low with some roasted malt and then huge balsamic tartness...should this be a sour? Thin body with cotton like fizz. Whoa! Tart and like licking a 9v dipped in skippy creamy peanut butter. Man, I loved Shorts before tonight...how about some QC guys.

12 oz. bottle from Daknole. Nice relatively viscous pour. Nice fluffy light brown head sitting on top of an opaque black body. This is looking pretty damn good to me. I love the twist on this thing i.e. the salty, peanut, peanut butter, roast aroma. I didn’t quite believer the label, but damn this beer is pungent and sweet and salty. What else could you be looking for in a sweet stout? Too carbonated, I must say. If this were a bit smoother then this would be like drinking a PB&J. I know they have their PB&J beer, but the strawberry dominated that. Flavor is salty peanuts, roast, some slight sweetness (not fruit though) possibly some sugar added. Amazing beer and I wish I could have access to this all the time. I WANT MORE SHORTS BEERS!

(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of nuts, roasted malt, and some sour fruit notes. Flavor of grass, nuts, and light sourness (infection).

Bottle thanks to blutt59. The smell is definete peanut butter, corn nuts, peanuts, and pbj. The look is dark, brownish in color, with an ok beige colored head. The taste is sweet, nut, slight tartness, and more nuts.

A: The pour is a fairly viscous black liquid with a fluffy mocha colored foam. S: At first sniff, the peanuts are not all that present, but as the beer begins to warm up a bit, it comes through. The roasted malt and chocolate aromas are a bit more powerful though. The oatmeal provides a bit of a cookie smell. T: Like the nose, the peanuts come out a bit more as the beer comes to temperature. The oatmeal lends the beer a peanut butter cookie type flavor, and the chocolate flavor in the beer goes very nicely. M: The body is nice and medium to full with a low level of carbonation, providing a smooth creamy mouthfeel. D: Perhaps I’m simply a victim of the "interesting" factor, but I found this beer to be very enjoyable. I really love peanut butter and while it wasn’t as "peanut-buttery" as I would have liked, it still was a nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Flickr(http://www.flickr.com/photos/26049401@N Saykilly’s coarse peanut butter cups volcanize themselves from the chocolate-laced black-colored, lightly brown-finged liquor beneath. Add a splash of raw peanut oil over coffee and you’re all set. Flavors develop an immediate sense of lactic acid. Surprisingly, more infected than the last. A strong lactobacillus presence overrides the subtlety of the peanuts, oat cream, and stout roast. Heavy foam carries away the slick oily perfume of ground nuts that this beer should be so good at displaying. It’s like that Family Guy commercial spoof where two guys, one eating peanut butter and the other eating chocolate get in a head on car-accident and merge the two. Delicious, but tragic. And still drinkable. Yet, less mangled than PB&J. Can you imagine what that cartoon-rendered car-accident looked like?

courtesy of tpd975 pours dark brown/black, thin mocha head. Again this was a very fizzy beer, similar in disappointment to their PB&J. Aroma, light roast, malty, peanut was actually more present than PB&J. flavor, peanut flavors, some roasted caramel malts, hints of chocolate, lingering sourness, a beer that just went wrong. Overly infected
