COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the palate Harlot’s 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.

Bomber. Charles Finkel, you devil! The woman on the label has nice gourds, but she’s pretty homely. Pours dark brown with red highlights and a collapsing beige head. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is sweet and savory with lots of that aforementioned spice conglomeration; seems especially savory compared to a lot of the pumpkin beers I’ve been drinking lately, which seems like a lot. Overall, a great pumpkin beer.

Beerman6686 (4427) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2012
This one poured a murky very dark red to brown with a beige head. Aroma was light roasted malts, and spices. Flavor was light chocolate, bark, and spices. Not too bad.

CampesinoTino (770) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bomber. Dark reddish brown colored with light khaki foam. Aroma is mostly pumpkin spice, toasted malt and toffee. The taste starts with a mild pumpkin pie and brown sugar flavor followed by some cinnamon, clove and caramel malt. Also a little bit of raisin and fig in the background. The body is closer to a Belgian Strong Dark Ale than a Pumpkin Ale with its slightly syrupy, silky mouthfeel and dark sugar finish. The pumpkin presence isn’t too prominent but it blends nicely with the other flavors.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2012
22oz bottle: pours a clear dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark malty nose with some pumpkin notes. Starts with decent fullness and a lightly toasted dark malty nose with some mild pumpkin character and nutmeg and ginger spice before a drier bittersweet finish. Could use a touch more sweetness and pumpkin flavor.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a very dark brown body with an inch of struggling to sustain, light beige foam.

Smell: Dark, toasty malts (toasted nuts, toasted bread) with brown sugar, earthy prickly spices, fruity esters, mashed squash, alcohol. OK.

Taste: Dark brown maltiness, with tastes of crusty dark bread, brown sugar, molasses. Medium-light sweetness. Slight estery raisin fruitiness. Allspice, clove, something a little earthy, and the faux-heated ginger. Squashy pumpkin character is fairly light. Lightly bitter. Remains malty, spicy, and, if you’re lucky, it reminds that, yes, there is some pumpkin in this thing until the end. Finishes fairly smooth, with some alcohol warmth exacerbated by the warming nature of some of the spices in the spice mix.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Great? No, but it’s good enough, and it’s always nice to see a pumpkin ale that doesn’t follow same tired, old, trodden path.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle:   Deep burnt brown sugar, mild to moderate off-white head, little lacing.   Soft spicy nose, a bit of fruity breadiness.   Combination spicy tongue of cinnamon, nutmeg, with some Christmas fruitcake like flavors.   Has a bit of heavy/dark breadiness to it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Warm spices on the finish, cinnamon, nutmeg, with the aformentioned fruitcake like flavors.   A bit more advanced than your standard every day Pumpkin Ale.   Pretty respectable.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap @ the brewpub. Very dark creamy off white head, very nice pumpkin aroma, light spice. Excellent expression of pumpkin on the palate, with spice taking a backseat for a change. Some raisin notes here too. Medium bodied, very satisfying, not as aggressively spiced as most pumpkin seasonals.

Bottle into a goblet glass at home. Rich Dark sepia color with an almost rust colored head. Subtle flavors all over. I was expecting more of a spiced pumpkin taste and it was more like drinking a heavier New Castle with a hint of spices.

theisti (3259) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 19, 2012
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is light haze brown copper, with a smallish light tan head. The aroma is pretty big nutmeg, a deep dark pumpkin, and light roast behind the spice and vegetable. The taste is the spiced nutmeg upfront, meaty pumpkin, and the light roast peaking out behind that. The nutmeg carries the spice finish. The palate is medium bodied, lighter carbonation level, the spice nutmeg finish. Decent enough Pumpkin beer, thanks Brandon.

Good flavor and colar. Not hoppy at all. Alcohol aftertaste does not go well with other flavors. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
