Scandal Brewing Co. 7 Deadly Sins Gluttony Pumpkin Bock Review Scandal Brewing Co. – Gluttony Pumpkin Bock Review

 

The first beer to be released in Scandal Brewing’s new 7 Deadly Sins line of brews is the Gluttony Pumpkin Bock. This big, 8% beer comes in a comparatively large, 750ml bottle with a resealable top. The beer pours as a golden-amber colour topped with a thin finger of quickly dispersing head. The Gluttony smells strongly of ginger and pumpkin spice in a unique and rather spicy manner. The Pumpkin tones seem subdued but the ginger spice kicks it up a notch or two. The flavour has a defined pumpkin spice with a big clove spice and a ginger back. Nutmeg tones also come into play making for a spicy, but not way over the top beer. As the flavour settles a mellow aftertaste with a slightly generic finish ends the ordeal. The finally is not the best part of this beer but that is just a good excuse to never put your glass down. Scandal Brewing has upped their game with the release of their 7 Deadly Sins line of beers. The Gluttony tops each of the beers in the past 7 Wonders line and the next 6 beers will definitely be worth watching for.
