look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

22oz bomber, split

appearance: nice provocative label, beer pours into my delirium chalice - pretty dark mahogany body, light muddy film

smell: mostly spice - some roasted pumpkin, a lot of booze

taste: decent flavor profile, but not elite - spicy rye, booze, roasted pumpkin, nutmeg. A little too hot for the style - would have preferred something that showcased the pumpkin a bit more

mouthfeel: spicy, boozy

overall: ok - but not a repeat purchase

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.

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

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a dark, murky mahogany brown. Thin wispy head dissipates immediately leaving a very thin ring around the glass. Aroma of light malt, vegetable pumpkin, light pie spicing. Flavor follows with pumpkin, pie spice and light sweet malt, finishes spicy pumpkin and bitter, probably from the spices, but perhaps from some neutral flavored hops. The vegetable flavor dominates the flavor at the end of the taste and is not completely supported by the malt. Medium body with a hint of creaminess, light carbonation. An interesting take on a pumpkin ale that gets credit for a good genuine pumpkin flavor, but is not quite well balanced and somewhat undercarbonated.
