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.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
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 (25088) - 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 don’t pick up any peanut whatsoever - more tart cherries. No real bitterness. An interesting infection this time from Shorts! 030612

Opaque black beer, small tan head. Nose of unshelled peanuts! Light dry palate, crispy. Mild dark malts with unsweet peanut and mild minerals. Interesting contrast between the Porter like tangy dark malt and the earth peanut. Slightly weird - but tasty!

Trivia time: ’goober’ is the gullah word for peanut, and has its origins in West African languages. Dark brown with a slight haze. Definite peanut buttery nose - not much else. Very roasty on the palate with light peanut butter that gets stronger as it goes. Roasty, bitter finish. The nuts and stout never really came together for me.

(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).

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
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.

Tmoney99 (10544) - 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.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma has some wonderful peanut butter and peanut oil with a hint of molasses, roasted malt and a touch of chocolate. Flavor has peanuty goodness mixed with peanut oil. Kind of odd. And this bottle had a little sourness. Would have been amazing if not for the sourness. Damn.
