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.

Draft. What can i say this is a treat. Mahogany body with a tan head. Chocolate and peanut character, chewy and full toasted malt character with a nutty accent and some sweet vanilla. Wow someone grab the cheesecake, i’ll bring the goober.

Bottle, has a black pour with tan colored head, this beer is pretty dark in the glass, head dissipates quickly to a small ring and little islands, left tan colored lacing on the glass, there is some dark sediment on the bottom of the bottle, big aromas of chocolate and peanut, some roasted malt, hint of coffee with some chocolate and bread sweetness, flavors of milk chocolate, roasted malt, some dark chocolate and nut, light dark fruit, chocolate and malt sweetness in the background, has a smooth malt roast and hop bitterness at the finish, there is a little alcohol flavor in the background with no warmth on the palate and it does not get intrusive or ruin the pleasure of this beer, I only get the a little bitterness from the alcohol in the background, mouth feel is great, feels smooth and creamy, carbonation is nice and not over done, aromas are uncanny, two of my favorites things to eat together, chocolate and nuts, nose is really interesting, an interesting beer, try this if you can get it.

Sampled at the HopCat in Grand Rapids, MI. Aroma of chocolate, peanuts, nutella. Flavor is very dry, but i get the peanut notes and some nice chocolate malt. The malt profile here is very unique. Nice full mouthfeel with dry, peanutty finish. Pretty awesome.

12 oz. bottle from Daknole. Nice relatively viscous pour. Nice fluffy light brown head sitting on top of an opaque black body. This is looking pretty damn good to me. I love the twist on this thing i.e. the salty, peanut, peanut butter, roast aroma. I didn’t quite believer the label, but damn this beer is pungent and sweet and salty. What else could you be looking for in a sweet stout? Too carbonated, I must say. If this were a bit smoother then this would be like drinking a PB&J. I know they have their PB&J beer, but the strawberry dominated that. Flavor is salty peanuts, roast, some slight sweetness (not fruit though) possibly some sugar added. Amazing beer and I wish I could have access to this all the time. I WANT MORE SHORTS BEERS!

Growler thanks to Stfun!! Dark black pour, rich brown head and a wonderful aroma of fresh homemade peanut butter and a little chocolate. Flavor is sweet vanilla, lactose, sweet milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter all the way through with little bitterness on the finish. Very unique beer, and something I really dug (admittedly, I love peanut butter.) Surprised to see so many lower rates on this one, I’m guessing the consistency must be pretty spotty out of the bottle and much better off the tap.

This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light chocolate, dark roasted malts and yumy peanuts too. Flavor was not so much reeses peanut butter cup but more of a butter finger with dark chocolate. Great miz of flavors.

Rating #100 for this brew. this is a pretty solid stout, sweet oatmealy mostly, but a good peanut nuttiness in the background the whole way through. the body is very nice and thick and gooey. better than i thought it would be.

Thanks to HailSquishFace for sending this one my way. Did not get much in the way of Reese like others have suggested, but still a good brew. Aroma is crushed peanuts and oatmeal, with a touch of cream. Flavor is oats, with a touch of chocolate, and lactose. Faint note of hoppy pine. Very akin to Breakfast stout, with less coffee and more nuts. Wish I could get these things on tap; as good as they are in the growler, I just know theyd be exceptional fresh!

In short: A splendid roasted chocolaty session stout
How: Tap at Boston Extreme Beer Fest 2009
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Chocolate cake nose. The beer tastes very roasted, more so than usual for an oatmeal stout. Despite the high roastiness the body remains smooth and velvety just the way I like it in oatmeal stouts. Flavour of a black chocolate cake with a little vanilla ice-cream on top and a few roasted almonds. More satisfying than the more hyped Sexual Chocolate that I had next to it. If all Shorts were that nice puzzl would give his cellar to the less fortunates. And buy them pizza in case the his beers give them the munchies.
