Pours a murky deep rustic browny-orange. Small off white head. Leaves a decent little film over the top and little tiers of lacing.

Nose starts with creamy pumpkin meat. Neat! A little bit of chewy sweet malts and it warms into more caramel/biscuity/bready type area.

tarts out reminiscient of a decent amber: some of the bready/doughy malts and a slight hop bite underpinning it, and the pumpkin does come in a little it through the second half, though not in a large way. I get just hints at the nutmeg, until the finish/aftertaste. That's still prettty amber, though the pumpkin makes a bit more of an appearance, and I start to get a little bit of baking spice, but still pretty weak.
Decent medium body. Enjoyable enough, but doesn't really stand out in my oh-so-important opinion.

Every year I try a few pumpkin beers even though they really arent exactly my favorite style. This year, 2014, I tried about 5 new ones, and only 2 made my cut of totally worthy beers.

Harlot's Harvest was one of the 2.

This beer drinks very smooth and easy. A lot darker than your average pumpkin beer. Acceptable hints of pumpkin-pie-style spices without going overboard. Lots of malt, but not too sweet; has more of a roasty taste and aroma.

A very well balanced brew. I will certainly reach for this one every Autumn.

Appearance shows a dark brown ale supporting minimal head, leaving nil lace. Smell of a higher gravity ale with pumpkin and spice in the background. Taste has some pumpkin and spice with a lot of alcohol. Mouthfeel is light considering the gravity with good carbonation. To much alcohol flavor for me and not enough pumpkin and spice.

Little more on the darker side for a pumpkin ale. Very good tasting beer, doesn't have that sweet pumpkin taste to it. 8.5% hits the spot.

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, brown sugar. Sweet tasting with a tad bit of bitterness in the back. Mouthfeel is medium, a little heat/spice from the alcohol. Overall I enjoyed it a lot.

2014 vintage 22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a dark brown color with a very small fizzy white head that quickly disappears completely, laving nothing behind. Looks like cola

S- the first thing noticed on the aroma is some smoky charred malt that usually isn't found in the style. Beyond that, there is your typical pumpkin spices with an emphasis on nutmeg, also picking up some cola

T- malty and sweet base with cinnamon kicking in mid-palate, beyond that it's hard to pick out any other spices other than a bit of clove. I am picking up a raw pumpkin flavor though. The finish gives more of that charred malt that was found in the aroma, charcoal and burnt woodsy linger

M- medium body with very low carbonation gives a nearly-flat mouthfeel with a slick finish. The alcohol is hidden well, but beyond a slightly prickly hit on the tongue, it's nearly flat

O- this one just seems a little unbalanced, and doesn't really stand out in the world of pumpkin beers. It's easy to drink, but the mouthfeel doesn't really leave you wanting more
