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.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. High hopes on this one. Pours with a huge brown head and a black body with good lace. Aroma is strong, with husky and deep, rich peanut butter, dusty, alcohol and chocolate. Taste is infected, sour, acrid coffee and chocolate. Light bubbles. Ruined.

(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).

Originally reviewed: 2/15/11. Poured into a pint glass. Iím a little hesitant with this one. The Shortís beers Iíve had have been hit or miss. The last one, PB & J, was an infected, vinegary mess. It didnít even warrant a review. So Iím crossing my fingers on this one. The pour doesnít conjure up any confidence on my end. A deep dark black, but not even the slightest bit of head or lace. Nothing. This could be motor oil for all I know. The nose is eerily similar to the last peanut butter beer of theirs I tried, and we know how that turned out. Mild cocoa, jam, and PB. Thereís a definitive tart presence that is a little off-putting. The body is moderately thick with carbonation spritzing it up midway through, then smooths out on the finish. Mild cocoa, coffee char, and the faintest of nuttiness. Sourness is ever-present. Eh. I donít like this. Maybe Iím a little gun-shy with these guys now, but this could have been so much better. Out she goes. Wonít have this again.

12oz bottle -- big thanks to the michiganer that tipped me this! A lot of people are doing peanut butter porters these days, but I donít think Iíve 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. Itís still a sour, kind of gross beer, though. Would love to re-rate a fresh example if I ever get the opportunity.

Black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma is very fruity with heavy nuts and a touch of hops. Flavor has tons of sour lactic notes. Everything else is pretty much buried underneath that. Finishes sour, astringent. Oh well.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is coffee, light peanuts and...dammit, there it is again. The sour smell that means for the second year in a row Iíve fallen prey to infected Goober. Taste, lightly roasty with subtle peanut butter and yep, a foul, sour finish. Mouthfeel is unpleasantly slick and lacking in body. God, when will I frickiní learn with Shortsí oddball releases?

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Deep dark brown coloured body with a very thin, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of odd rubber, alcohol, anise, medicinal and funky malt smells with perhaps a hint of peanuts, sweetness and more licorice. Medium-bodied; Assertive odd funky malt flavours at first with a taste of balloons (inflating), alcohol, nuts, resin and some odd funk. Aftertaste shows some odd flavours still, with a touch of anise and other spices. Overall, easily the worst from Shortís that iíve had, and although not a horrible beer, one that I will not tell others to buy nor drink. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 16-January-2011 for US$2.59 sampled at home in Washington on 27-November-2011.
