COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sierra Nevada uses malt within days of roasting at the peak of its flavor to give Tumbler a gracefully smooth malt character. Two-row pale, crystal 40, chocolate and smoked malts give it a malty complexity. Challenger hops in the boil add balancing bitterness, while more Challengers and some Goldings give just enough hop flavor in the finish to balance all that malt.

Pour is a nice looking brown with a large white head. Aroma is a nice roasted malt with a little chocolate lingering in there. Flavor is the same a nice roasty with a chocolate malt at the end. Better than average brown ale.

jrob21 (2560) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2010
On tap at the brickstore. A nice seasonal malt forward beer with a big of roastiness and some chocolate notes in the background. A decent sweetness coats your palate. The finish though is a little off and works into this cardboard sort of texture and taste that is not entirely appetizing.

solsticebrew (61) - USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle, Honolulu. Clear brown in color with foamy, light tan head. A solid, safe beer. Not much up front, some hints of bitter chocolate and slightly bitter on the back, but not the usual SV over hopping. I enjoy this beer and it will be good in early autumn when it is still a little warmer.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2010
bottle pours brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is tons of bread and doughy malts, some chocolate malts and citrus hops. Flavor is rich and chocolaty, very malty base but a nice and refreshing hop presence that cleans the palate in a dry lightly spicy finish. Nice.

Petkus331 (264) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2010
A tasty brew, not strong, but not weak, pretty much as expected for a brown ale. Enjoyable bitterness and dark brown color, this is a good brew. Went great with spicy cheese. Sierra Nevada is a great brewery.

dmac (4007) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2010
12 oz bottle from Spirits Toms River. Pours a deep dark chestnut brown with a large tightly bubbled foamy light beige head. Aroma of nutts, cola, toast, chocolate, roasted malts and orange slices. Great body with a medium mouthfeel, average carbonation and a lasting aftertaste. Flavors of toast, nutts, cola and a hint of chocolate. This is solid for a brown.
