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.

scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Medium dark body with light tan head poured from a bottle. A little bit of a sweet roasted malt aroma. Alright taste fairly semi sweet chocolate beginninglasting dry roasted finish, with an odd nice lasting moutfeel.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Pours a medium brown with a medium tan head that lasts. Nice roasted nuts and dark chocolate on the nose. Good mouthfeel with bitter chocolate notes and enough hops to give it some balance. Good Autumn beer.

LesArgen (299) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2011
This pleasant offering form Sierra Nevada is much subtler than the colour would suggest, particularly on the nose. Its a lovely browny/ambery colour in the glass and has a little bit of malt and citrus in the aroma. The taste has some coffee and malt, with a lingering, mildly bitter finish.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown color. Foamy tan-brown head. Hop nose and also heavy malts. Heavy heavy palate with hop and burnt malts, both roasty and nutty. Bitter malty finish.

eruizgarcia (292) - - JUN 2, 2013
Pours very dark amber with a thick frothy head that lasts forever. Sweet malts with some hops for balance. Pretty good flavor and easy to drink but just a tad watery mouth feel, nothing really special.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Deep brown color, thick foamy head. Slightly hoppy aroma but very faint. Nutty, hoppy, earthy taste. Full body and finishes crisp.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a dark caramel/cola with a light tan head that dissipates. Slight aromas: caramel, iced coffee, floral, dough, and some vanilla. Like most of the Sierra stuff, very balanced flavor. Clean palate with some sticky. Decent.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Tumbler pours a deep amber brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma takes me back to Autumn every time smelling of sweet caramel, roasted barley, shaved chocolate, subtle spice and fresh grain. Crisp on the palate, perfectly spicy hops complimenting a cola like finish.

Not a huge brown ale fan. But this is an exception. It really grew on me. Nice smooth taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Real nice brass-brown color, lasting tan head. Very light toasty aroma. Some sweet malts, but the hops are barely discernable in flavor or finish. A top of the mouth coating astringentcy quickly overtakes any pleasant maltiness and lasts for the finish. Id drink it again, but not if Im paying.
