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 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.

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 (1208) - 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 (280) - 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.

Den spritt språngande smakgalenskapen som är något av Sierra Nevadas adelsmärke går här i koppel med mindre svängradie i uttrycket. För personer som är helt förtrampade efter att ha tacklats av Bigfoot är Tumbler en mer överkomlig utmaning. I den här viktklassen jabbas det mest. Ett öl som beter sig som en gentleman och därför är lätt att gilla, men som aldrig slår andan ur en.

Pours a nice dark amber body with a medium head. Flavours full of jam and marmelade. A somewhat strange taste...
