This poured darker than I would have expected, it was more like a porter. Nice subtle pumpkin and some sweet malt in the nose. The taste was full with a good amount of pie spice but not overpowering. I excected some roasty flavor based on the color but there was none. A nice sweetness thought with a bit of herbal hops tones to finish. Definitely one of the best "Imperial" style pumpkin beers I've had this season.

Pike Brewing 'Harlot's Harvest Pumpkin Ale' @ 8.5% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $7

A-pour is a dark brown from bottle to glass with a small off white head which is quickly dissapating leaving a minimal lace ring along the pint

S-spicey pumpkin pie , nice amount of my favs (nutmeg & cinnamon)

T-tasty dark pumpkin ale , almost porter like , butt closer to a marzen

MF-ok/mild carbonation , bit thin , must be the ABV , I can definately feel the booze

Ov-ok/good beer , plus the nice pumpkins on the label make this a worthy pumpkin ale for us beer geeks/pumpkin beer freaks

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.

Deep and dark caramel color. Soapy off-white head. No lacing. Thin.

Roasty, light spice, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and mild pumpkin aroma.

Tons of crystal and caramelized sugars. Spice flavors are prevalent and faint. Mildly creamy, high carbonation detracts from the spicy flavors. Very light sweetness and mild dry bitterness. Well done. The dryness is earthy and kinda awkward, kinda makes your mouth pucker, but not in a sour way. Drinks a lot like a pumpkin porter.

Definitely one of the better pumpkin brews on the market. Slightly allover the board, but holds true. I could definitely recommend this one...

I bought a bomber of Harlot's Harvest Pumpkin Ale in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a dark walnut color with a thin beige head. There are garnet red hues shining through the beer when held up to the fall sunlight.

Snell is faint, with some sweet spice and squash notes on the nose.

Taste is very much a pumpkin porter. Rich charcoal flavors, with some pumpkin and spice, clove and cinnamon along side, and mild bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is full-bodied in keeping with the porter style.

Overall a rich dark pumpkin ale. None of the flavors are overpowering, and this is remarkable drinkable on a fall afternoon.

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.
