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 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 I’ve 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 frickin’ learn with Shorts’ oddball releases?

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 Short’s that i’ve 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 Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 16-January-2011 for US$2.59 sampled at home in Washington on 27-November-2011.

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.

12 oz. bottle; pours thin, oily black with foamy dark tan head fading quickly; first nose is almost like paint thinner but as it goes deeper into your nose it’s obviously chocolate nuts, peanut brittle, caramel and oatmeal; smells pretty nice, but was very strange at first; first sip is quite sour and astringent; spoiled oranges, chocolate, stale nuts; ugh, something is definitely wrong here; herbal, sour and quite disgusting; what a disappointment!! I’ve got one more bottle from a different source, so hope they’re not all like this; tried this beer twice from two different sources in two different states, but with the same result; I’m sure they will figure this out and it will be better next time b/c it still sounds like a yummy beer to me

Faint aromas of nuts and roasted malt, but mostly dominated by sour dough on the back end. As for the taste I can detect some sort of nuts followed by a noxious sour flavor, this bottle probably has infection issues. My mouth feels very slick and gross after drinking this too. :(

Another infected bottle; pours black with huge carbonation. Taste is very sour, a bit sweet and bitter yet. Roasted aroma, little else. I’d like to try a non-infected one, but this is evidently a common problem with this beer. Maybe get a newer one; I stored this one for a while before drinking.

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.
