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.

Aroma was full of peanuts, big salty nuts with a hint of roasted malts. Black syrupy pour. Thick with no head or lacing. Taste was slightly salty, a lot of the peanut aroma really came through in the flavor. It was incredible.

Huge thanks to the kind soul that shared this at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting (jdub? fogdog?). Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, peanut, peanut shells, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is similar: slightly peanut-forward but the chocolate shines right behind it to make it a nice team effort instead of a peanut party. Very nice.

Courtesy of markwise. Thanks! Pours a pretty dark mahogany with thin mocha like head. The aroma is just about like opening a fresh jar of car trunk warmed peanut butter. I really don’t get much else beyond the legume-ness. The taste isn’t as all encompassing ‘peanut’ as the nose with peanut butter, some mild chocolate, nutty maltiness and malts. It has a mild level of spicy hops that seems to reside around the edges of the flavor.

Actual peanuts used huh? Great. This kind of comes out like a Reese’s with peanuts that linger with you for a bit longer than when the beer is gone. Roasty and creamy. I only wish it had a higher alcohol bill to toast this peanut butter sammy.

Graciously shared by GodOfThunder! From the growler, pours black with a thin tan head. The nose is PEANUT BUTTER CUP! Peanut butter in the nose, chocolate, roasty, slightly sweet, wow. In flavor roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, peanuts come through more as peanuts and less as PB. Medium thickness, low carb, a little chalky in the mouth. Very impressive.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with only a trace of a light brown head. Roasted peanuts with a faint sour aroma. Nice components of a traditional dry stout up front with lots of roasted malt and a hint of tart coffee. Big dry roasted peanut flavor in the finish with a peanut butter sweetness lingering on the lips. Creamy and slightly dry in texture. Perfectly carbonated despite its flat appearance. Nice, easy drinking stout from the good folks at Shorts!

On tap at the brewpub. Pour dark brown with a thin tan head. Peanuts, caramel and malt in the aroma and taste. Nice.

Tap @ Shorts: Black, black, black, only a mild brown hue near the very top with a fine-bubbled, micro mocha foam that hangs around on top. Smells like lightly charred peanuts over an open flame; seriously dry roasted, peanut goodness filling your nostrils with a faint undercurrent of dense chocolate malt & a hint of creamy sweetness. Taste includes all of the aforementioned goodness... Dry roasted peanut character with a peanut butter-like sweetness aspect, dry cocoa dust, faint char, chocolate, & hints of cream. Leaves your palate coated with roasted peanut butter & toasted peanuts, like you just got done munching a spoonful of Skippy’s Super Chunk. The upper echelon of peanut infused stouts, no question. Downright delicious.

Growler thanks to hopdog. Pours a deep black with a smaller bubbly deep tan head. Aroma of peanut butter, oats, light roasted malt and a touch of smoke. Flavor of roasted, oatmeal, nut and light coffee.

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.
