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.

12 ounce bottle cracked open by some new and old friends. Thanks! I guess this is an infected bottle, but for me, it worked very well. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, peanuts and cherries. The taste is quite tart, with notes of green apple and cherry, as well as peanuts, butterscotch and chocolate. Smooth, medium bodied.

Thank you Derek for sending this Growler my way! Poured a dark black color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of roast, some lighter oatiness, nutty, chocolate, and smokey. Peanuts. Tastes of roast, chocolate, oats, and nutty. I like the way the peanuts were done and presented ’themselves’ in this beer.

This brew pours a dark mahogany brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of peanuts and chocolate malt. Medium body with flavors that a a fairly radical departure from the smell. Notes of solvents undermine the roast malt and peanut butter flavors. Either something got into this batch or this beer needs an overhaul. Fairly disappointing beer from a brewery that has otherwise impressed me thus far.

Bottle from the new 6-pack seasonal. Tremendous roast aroma, black with fabulous brown head. Carbonation is right there. The taste is very sour, I cannot imagine that this is intentional. Yes, peanut, yes stout. But sour? Above average mouthfeel, but sour is one step backward for me, one big step backward for the masses.

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.

Growler... Pours very dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Smells like peanut butter and chocolate with a bit of cardboard. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Layers of peanut butter, chocolate and caramel. A touch of cardboard oxidation. Very roasty, moderately bitter finish. Interesting! I wonder how the brewer made this happen with all the fat in peanuts and peanut butter. I can’t believe this beer had a head at all. Maybe brewed with Bunchosia Argentea (Peanut Butter Fruit) instead of peanuts? Who knows? Who cares? It works! <b>Kudos to GodOfThunder for sharing!</b>

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2016 Tap. Poured black with a deep brown head. Aroma was full of peanut notes (very peanut butter like) with an undertone of oats and dark malts. Flavor did a good job of balancing the the nuttiness from the peanuts with the dark malts and oats.

12oz bottle -- big thanks to the michiganer that tipped me this! A lot of people are doing peanut butter porters these days, but I don’t think I’ve seen anything that involved just peanut puree... You can get peanut in the flavor, not too strong, but there. Unfortunately, this is very sour. Bottle is infected for sure. Taste is almost nothing but sourness -- maybe a light bit of bitterness. There might be some peanut in the nose, but what is predominant is the tart funky sourness. Peanut aroma is very nice in the aftertaste, though (once the big abrupt sour taste finishes), as well as good creamy oats. Luckily those flavors outlast the sour. Dark brown, near black color. No head or lace. Medium body, very thin. Just a light (pretty nice) chewiness in the finish. Lighter, kind of rougher, abrupt carbonation. Sipping this is kind of miserable, really, the aftertaste is all that keeps me going. You have to get through the thin body, rough texture, and sour taste to get to that awesome oaty peanuty aftertaste. It’s still a sour, kind of gross beer, though. Would love to re-rate a fresh example if I ever get the opportunity.

On tap at Sunset for their Shorts event prior to EBF. Pours a deep black. Light peanut butter on the nose, chocolate and roast. Sweet and nutty. Chocolate, malt, toast. Very faint earthy peanut butter before a long roast and chocolate finish.

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
