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.

Mahogany colored beer with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee, and chocolate. The taste is this awesome blend of oatmeal, subtle coffee, caramel, and a nutty aftertaste. Very easy drinking. This is one of those beers you really could "drink all day". Highly recommended to dark beer fans.

Really nice deep caramel look with a slightly smokey taste - thankfully not nutty just features the malt

[A] Watery java and nutty aromas. [A] Pours a very thin, weak, watery looking brown from the bottle; sits a quite clear brown into a pint glass. Some tannish head. [F] A good redeemer here, there are some solid coffee and nutty notes. Still not solid enough to compete with the best of the best. [P] Crisp finish. Mild mouth. Drinkable. [O] A little less than what I was expecting. Much less than phenomenal. Quite pissed, as I’m sure this new seasonal will last for awhile, and it didn’t at all impress me.

The pour is dark brown with ruby tints in the light. The head medium large and khaki colored. Theres touches of chocolate, toast, grain, and nuts in the aroma. The flavor is dry and toasty with hints of cocoa and nuts. The body is definitely on the weak side which is disappointing. Very dry with a distinct earthy bitterness in the finish. Finishes quite bitter actually. A very good brown ale, but not rich enough to keep me interested.

Bottle. Dark ruby and mahogany blend. Sturdy beige head. Delicate lacing on the glass. Aroma is nutty with caramel, thin dark chocolate, spicy hops and earthy notes. Taste is soft, spicy hops, chocolate covered peanuts, chewy caramel, and mild earthy notes. Body is medium-full and chewy with a creamy carbonation. Finish is more spicy hops, light toffee, caramel, dark chocolate and nuts. Nice brown, though I don’t necessarily like the style.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
355mL. Poured a deep, clear amber with a billowing, grayish tan head that has awesome retention and webby lace. Aroma is poopy toilet water thankfully moving to light caramel, light coconut, Vienna malt. Taste is malt-forward, rather uninteresting, no hoppiness, no roast, touch of crystal malt, mostly Vienna malt husk. Creamy, fairly rich on the palate. Otherwise very boring.

Fantastic medium-dark beer. No aftertaste, no bitterness. Very smooth and easy to drink. Texture of a dark hefeweisen. Winking Lizard in Cleveland. Aug 2010.

StefanSD (2188) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
12oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent roan brown with amber highlights. The head is beige, fine and creamy with ample sticky lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength with roasted grains, cocoa and yeast. The flavor has a burnt toast roasted grain flavor followed by cocoa, bread, earth and spices. The palate was full and malty. The finish is short and dry. Overall: A very tasty brown.

Nutty is the name of the game. One of the driest beers I’ve had. A beautiful nut brown beer. Cloudy.brown. hazelnut and mocha coffee. A pungent cat-piss hop. A leafy, summery concoction.

This has to be one of my favorite brown ales. The aroma is good, not nutty or lactic. Looks great. Very smooth taste. A nice heft to it, not lactic or nutty, just well-balanced. Easily drank 4 of these last night. Great stuff.
