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.

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.

Too much chocolate for my liking when it comes to brown ale. Aroma is pretty nondescript. Really smooth drinking though.

Brown in color... Aroma is malty, with citrus and oak notes... Flavor is nuts and malts, with hints of smoke and citrus... Not as hoppy as their flagship brown, but a great beer nonetheless..

12 oz bottle. Very dark copper with a nice white fluffy head. Slightly roasty nose with no evidence of hops. Taste is malty with a bit of roastiness. OK for a brown ale which is not quite my favorite style.

Pour is chestnut brown with a tight bubbled thin skin of an off white head...smell is toasty and sweet with nuts and day old bread...taste is toasty and sweet as well with some nice smoky flavors coming in as well...that’s really the impressive part of this is the real smoke character...I’m pleased for sure with this less than boring brown ale...nice chewy mouthfeel and quick slippery finish...

12 oz bottle - Hints of roasted chocolate and caramel. Cloudy brown with an off-white head. Creamy flavor with some nice chocolate aftertaste. Overally, browns don’t excite me, but this one is very nice. I’d have a few of them.

Dark brown, great head. Green, vegetal aroma. Taste of roasted malt, reminds me of a nut brown ale. The hops are tasty and make the beer decent, almost overcoming the aroma which I don’t care for.
