COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the palate Harlotís Harvest is round and rich with a burst of caramel and molasses yielding a smooth sweetness reminiscent of pumpkin pie, and the boldness of a Belgian, monastic-style, strong dark ale. Savor it naked or clothed in the bounty of the season! To dress it appropriately, Charles Finkel designed the seductive label.

Sampler at Chuckís in Seattle. Maybe the only thing that sets this pumpkin beer apart from the pack is the dark copper color. Clear beer. Aroma is vegetal gourd with moderate strength spices, clove heavy. Flavor has surprising hop presence, less gourd and more spice. At least its not sweet.

Poured from a bomber into an ale glass. Dark brown and cloudy on the pour, with a modest amount of off-white head. Very little Brussels lace. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, allspice(?), squash, molasses, toasted malt. Sweet tasting with a tad bit of bitterness in the back. Medium body and carbonation, a hint of heat/spice from the alcohol. Overall I enjoyed it a lot.

Beautiful pumpkin. Dark in color. Strong pumpkin flavors. Iím not sure what the base beer is, though. But this guy is tasty. ABV very well hidden. Recommended.

"Brown ale in appearance. Nice malty backbone to support the spices, though you cant tell itís over 8%. the usua; suspects are there...cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice...but not over or underdone with a little natural pumpkin in there as well. Nice brew...and a decent deal at <$5."

Bottle (22oz $7): Dark Brown with very little head. Medium carbonation and body. Roasty burn taste. Pumpkin and spices, but that seemed to fade as the beer warmed.

Arayaga2 (1796) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Brown/black with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, and appropriately spiced like a pumpkin pie, but not too much. Taste is the same, and nothing sticks out too far, itís all there in the right proportion, without all the astringency of many in the style. This gives you earthy spiced caramel, and at the same time itís pretty clean, and alcohol is well hidden $5.70/22oz

DiarmaidBHK (3455) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine McLean. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head which leaves a fair amount of lacing. Nice spice rack and pumpkin notes on the nose. Defintiely get the pumpkin on the tongue which comes off pretty realisticly. finish lingers a bit but given itís abv thatís to be expected. Hides its alcohol pretty well. Nice.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Robert brought this one back from a trip to Washinton. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a huge fluffy brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was malty, toasty and a bit woody with notes of dark fruits and red wine. The flavor was malty and toasty caramel, toffee, wood, red wine, dark fruits and nutmeg. Long malty and toasty finish of caramel and red wine. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

Bottle. Love the name and label are of this. Pours a very clear dark brown color with almost no head on it. Nose is filled with a lot of actual pumpkin flavor, but the spices are muted on this. Taste is a little sweet, and has some decent pumpkin flavor coming through, but again, the spices are less noticeable. One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve had.
