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.

bhensonb (13823) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a foamy beige/tan head. Aroma is more treacle than pie spice. Med body. Flavor is treacle, brown sugar, squash, and traces of pie spice. Maybe more than a trace. And raisin it seems. Or something dark like that. Quite different, and a bit earthy. Pretty tasty and stands apart from the usual suspects.

Ferris (12101) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Cask - Smells like pumpkin pie, rich spices and sweet malts. Hazy amber with light thin head. Tastes very rich, heavily spices with the malts and pumpkin perfectly balanced. The cask conditioning of this makes it one of the best pumpkin ales I have every had. Picked up a bottle, hopefully it is just as good. Bottle - Not nearly as good as the cask, but I am not surprised. Toasty alt nose, Pretty sweet and a slight taste of medicine. Pumpkin is there, just a bit in the background. In the bottle this would be a 3.0.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine Virginia Beach. Pours a hazy red color with a medium sized foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pumpkin, pumpkin spice, toasted and herbal notes. Faint earthiness. The taste is pumpkins, toasted malts, caramel and a weird canned tomato thing. Medium bodied. Disappointing.

Dogbrick (11164) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Clear brownish pour with some orange around the edges and a medium foamy light beige head that recedes slowly. Sticky partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin spices and malt. Medium body with flavors of pumpkin, ginger and cinnamon plus some sweet malt in the background. The finish is sweet with a pumpkin aftertaste. Above average overall.

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Draught at the Pike Brewing Co, Seattle, WA. Dark reddish brown color with a small tan head. Coke, spices and Dr. Pepper in the aroma. The flavor is spices, sweetness, malt and pumpkin. Quite tolerable pumpkin ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Brown ale in appearance. Nice malty backbone to support the spices, though you cant tell it’s 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."

DuffMan (9201) - 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.

after4ever (7475) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Draft at the pike. Pours an opaque very dark brown with a loose tan ring. Sweet and spicy nose, heavy on the pie spice blend. Creamy medium body, carb is a little flabby. Toasty nutty pie like mid palate showing tons of pie flavors, very sweet. Maybe a bit cloying. Long sweet finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.
