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 (11060) - 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.

Drake (8546) - 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 (8133) - 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.

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.

DuffMan (6739) - 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.

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.

after4ever (6127) - 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.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Dark browna nd ruby around the edges. Short, bubbly tan head. Strong caramel and molasses with pumpkin pie, clove, and nutmeg in the nose. Almost a hint of Old Bay seasoning as well (or something similar). Taste is molasses up front with softer caramel, slightly burnt pumpkin pie, clove, nutmeg, light cinnamon and sweet malt. Body is medium with a dense, creamy carbonation. Ends with more molasses and caramel notes, softer clove, light cinnamon, pumpkin pie, burnt pie crust and more spices.

Dark black in color, thick head. Thick flavors with the molasses and added pumpkin flavors. Big strong flavored beer.
