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.

Nice crown. Spices, ham, and light bread aroma. Toast bread, red apple, and hints of smoke in the aroma.

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe website (£2.09):
Earthy hops and a little bit of caramel sweetness, there is some toasted bitterness that follows this and some nutty notes as well. The aroma seems well balanced and a few darker malts feature as well.
Deep caramel with a thumb sized, foamy beige head that holds very well, leaving some lacing too.
Sweet caramel malts and earthy hops that is followed later on by some bitterness and a touch of grain. I could detect some very faint chocolate and some light roasted malts too.
Well carbonated and quite crisp with mouthfeel and a smooth sort of dry finish. The body is medium and quite filling with a great balance and a smoky, moderately bitter finish.

Frighteningly easy to drink, very smooth throughout and with a crisp, bitter finish; I was looking forward to this one and again Sierra Nevada doesn’t disappoint. Whilst not the very best from the brewery that I’ve tried this one is certainly a good one.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 19, 2014
Dalla Sierra Nevada spira un vento autunnale che sa di luppoli e ha il colore bruno-amarantino delle foglie cadute. Brown ale poetica, intensamente amara, e con note di caramello, luppoli erbacei e sentori di frutta scura. "al cader delle foglie alla massaia non piange il vecchio cuor, come a noi grami", ma per fortuna questa ottima birra ci redime dalla tristezza per l’estate passata!

Ed5388 (1728) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2014
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy dark amber/brown color with a finger of frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, earthy hops, and caramel. Taste is much the same. Lots of dark roasted malt, earthy hop bitterness, sweet caramel, and notes of burnt toast.

Crille (64) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2014
Large white head, and a rich brown color. The nose is full of nutty and herbal notes, with a hint of roasted malts. I can taste toffee, chocolate and more roasted malts. I think it’s little to thin and to much carb for me. But I really like it!

jsmerig (1143) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a clear deep dark brown with minimal head and decent lacing. Aroma of smoked syrup. Taste is smooth and malty with a good dry bitter balance that finishes clean without being too smokey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Anova167 (267) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Brownish red opaque. Smell is all malts and fairly roasty. Flavor is much like a porter, yet fairly uninteresting. Decent.

Creamy and delicious dark autumn evenings when the wind blows outside. Nice hop flavor that mixes well with syrup mellow malt.
