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.

Bottle. Dusty roast, sweet malt character there but there’s a nutty smoked character, too. Beautiful dark amber-mahogany body with a rich rocky tan head. Taste heavy on the smoke, sweet crystal and lighter chocolate for balance, has some nice depth of malt complexity here, really a lot going on from relatively few components. Low, rounding bitterness and a touch of sour tang. Medium body is thickly malty with a little bit of chest warming despite the low alcohol presence. Pine, nuts, earth, caramel, tobacco, light toffee. Light citric hops coming through late; they really crackle. Heard good things about this one, happy to see they are all true - this is an excellent seasonal.

BOTTLE from T.J.s Thin body, fizzy carbonation, malt sweetess with a somewhat ash-like taste in the roast. Minimal and slightly odd aftertaste. Drinkable, but surprisingly forgettable; esp. for a Sierra Nevada brew..BUY AGAIN? No

Saw this recently at the store and decided to give it a whirl. Colour... very dark brown with a thin wisp of head. Nose... nicely roasty with hints of caramel. Palate... frothy, bittersweet, roasted malt, caramel and toffee. One of the better U.S made autumnal beers I’ve had.

Brown pour, thin fizzy light tan head. Malty, light chocolate, nuts, and herbal hops. Drinkable, but overall not very interesting.

Brownish red pour from bottle with small white head. Aroma is coffee and emergency room waiting area. Taste is coffee, sugar, cocoa and nuts. Lightly bitter, slightly funky finish. Decent, but not SN’s best work.

Pours brown with an off-white head. Flavor is malt sweetness with light floral hops. Meh.

Thin white head, clear deep brown body, nutty brown sugar sweet malt nose, flavor is initially malty sweetness and then the bitter dry finish with some mild roast and big mouthfeel just finishes it right up. Is it just me, or has Sierra Nevada really stepped up their game in terms of new beers in the recent history?

Pours a rich brown color with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is nutty, toasty, chocolate, brown sugar, and nice floral hops. Flavor is caramel, toast, grain, roast, chocolate, nutty, and a nice bitter floral finish.

12oz bottle, purchased at Bottle Barn. Pours a deep, dark, but clear amber color (or a very deep bronze); tall, small-bubbled, light-tan head with great retention and lacing; really nice pour on this, per usual (Sierra Nevada has nothing if not good packaging practices...). Very nondescript aroma on this one: just hints of a toasty and roasted maltiness, a basic hop character that seems slightly minty, like spearmint; very quiet, very boring. Medium body; moderate carbonation; light creaminess and no alcohol showing; significantly more character than the aroma, but still not all that much, honestly: that minty hop character plays out much stronger than in the aroma, alongside a mild smoked malt character and relaxed cola notes; honestly, it seems like Sierra Nevada forgot to put the flavor and aroma in this beer: nicely minty hop character in the mouth, but that’s about it. Pleasant mouthfeel, as always from SN packaged beer, but this just doesn’t have enough to it to hold my interest; even simple beers don’t need to be this resigned. Very quiet. Medium finish of light smokiness, a lingering mintiness, and some nice toasty notes rolling out eventually.
