OVERALL RATING:

Sight: Dark cola color, with 1 finger beige head that settles to a thin layer of tiny bubbles with a nice ring of head.  Nice lacing, too.

Scent: A pleasant roasted coffee aroma.

Flavor:  Roasted coffee, with a hint of bittersweet chocolate.  A ginger-like aftertaste that is a bit bitter, a bit sour.

Feel:  Thick, creamy mouthfeel with moderate-to-high carbonation

Concluding remarks: For denizens of New Brunswick, NJ, Harvest Moon is a great spot for good food, live-band karaoke, and–whoa!–craft beer.  Yep, as soon as you walk in, you see the kettles and fermentation vessels they use to brew their own beer.  So, you can’t get it much fresher than this.  Their Irish Stout, made from pale ale malts and roasted barley (100 lbs. of flaked barley, to be exact), is a highly enjoyable brew.  Classic Stout flavors of coffee and chocolate, that only taste better as the beer rests and mellows.  Support local small businesses, all you New Brunswickians–check out Paddy’s Irish Stout on your next George St. beer crawl.
