3.51/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark brown almost black color. Opaque and with just a spot of a lacing.

Smell peanut butter and chocolate

Taste: starts off with dark malts and some chocolate but quickly becomes straight peanut butter

Mouthfeel: fairly light. Lingering peanut butter taste

Overall: a very interesting beer. I was surprised at the power of the peanut butter. Not for everyone but certainly interesting. I don't think I'd reach for one very often

Serving type: on-tap

64oz Growler

This is my first taste of Short's. Uber Goober Oatmeal Stout is black. So black not a hint of light shines through even when directly backlit. There was even some gurgling as I filled my glass from the growler. A dense creamy two finger milk chocolate head formed on the pour that fell to a solid cap and left great spider webbed lacing on its way down.

It's my understanding that this was brewed with peanut puree and after sticking my nose in the glass it certainly appears that way. Strong initial aroma of crushed peanuts with the husk (is that the right word? not the shells but the skins) on them. As the nuttiness fades bakers chocolate shows up along with a touch of freshly brewed coffee. The finish brings along a moderate roastiness and a ghost like hint of alcohol. My original score for the smell was 4 but as this beer warms the roastiness and coffee combine with the chocolate creating a combo of chocolate peanut butter. Excellent!

I was a little longwinded in my description of the smell so I'll keep it short here. Quick flash of peanut butter up front before being overtaken by dark chocolate and fresh brewed coffee. These two combine to be soft and not overwhelming. Before you know it the peanut butter and chocolate come back on the finish along with a solid roastiness. This is a really interesting and delicious oatmeal stout.

Mouthfeel is spot on for the style. The oatmeal gives a great velvety smoothness from front to back. The body is full without being heavy. The roastiness on the finish leaves a balancing bitterness.

This beer is supremely sip-able. The velvety smoothness really helps things along. It got blustery cold all of a sudden and this is a good choice to drink away an evening such as tonight.

This is my first taste of Shorts brewing thanks to Hoppymeal. Uber Goober is an excellently brewed oatmeal stout with the uniqueness to take it a step above the rest. Hopefully I can get my hands on some more from Short's down road. Thanks again Derek!
