Über Goober Imperial Oatmeal Stout

Über Goober Imperial Oatmeal Stout
Short's Brewing Co.
Elk Rapids, Michigan

Unlike the PB & J Ale from these guys there is no mistaking that this nutter beer is a stout. While the peanuts are masked in the sweetness of the oatmeal stout cherry essence that some oaties have, it doesn't go unnoticed and comes across much like its predecessor with a dry, brusk and oily nuttiness. While that might sound like a dried up nutsack or its equivalent it's really not off-putting at all and adds to the multi-layers of taste. All the dark chocoffee stout flavors are in there along with a slight sourness that goes along with my calling it a cherry tasting oatmeal stout. And it is.
