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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle from Binny’s in Orland Park, Illinois: This pours a clear chestnut body with a respectable off-white head. The aroma is caramelly, a bit roasty, with an earthy bitterness. The flavor is much the same with mayhaps a dab of molasses and the earthiness becomes more pronounced. The finish is a soiled wood bitterness. Once was enough.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Poured an espresso brown, nose was a little nutty with hints of shoe leather and cigar paper, taste was not good, almost smokey, hints of sweetness, but no body to support all the weird flavors.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Pours clear brown with 3 finger off-white head. Nose is roasty smoked malt, corn flakes, backup hops, earthy. Tastes munich malty, somewhat marzeny/viennaish, with a definite smoked malt undercurrent, some hops, and some earthy notes. A decent late summer/autumn beer.

malrubius (2583) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 23, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes, Fairfield, CT in pint glass. Brown with lasting head and some lace. Toasted caramel yeasty aroma. Roasted caramel mild plummy fruit brown sugar and very mild smoky ash. Pretty damn good for a brown ale, but begs the question: Why?

Tmoney99 (13462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweety malt and smal hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that I would recommend to a freind.

chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Brown pour very carbonated bubbly head. Aroma of caramel and hops and taste of some malts and hint of toffee, watery finish with too much carbonation.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 Cola brown in color. Nicely malt forward without being too sweet. A little too bold style wise in my opinion. Could use some spice to add a kick.

tgncc (3094) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2010
The appearance is brown of course, reddish brown, translucent, light tan head. The aroma is nutty, grassy, slightly earthy. The flavor is more nutty, grassy, malty. The finish is very mild noble hop bittering. This is the only place where hops are in evidence in this beer. Medium, sightly thin mouthfeel. Standard, serviceable brown ale, but not remarkable at all. Not much in the often present chocolate or coffee you may see in this style.
