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. 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 donít necessarily like the style.

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.

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 Iíve 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...thatís really the impressive part of this is the real smoke character...Iím pleased for sure with this less than boring brown ale...nice chewy mouthfeel and quick slippery finish...
