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.

It pours a dark brown color with hints of orange. Nothing really stands out in the taste. There are some hints of nuts, some roast, and some caramel. But itís full, earthy, easy to drink, and delicious. Perfect for a day of watching football.

Clear brown pour. Light beige head. Aroma is nutty and loads of crystal malt. Slight chocolate. Taste is nutty cocoa and caramel with earthy notes up front. Palate is thin when cold but as it warms it develops a medium bodied feel. Interesting brown.

But bland but tasty malt led beer. Nice chilled and paired with cheese on toast. I like it!

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011. This one was quite pleasant albeit not that exciting. A great autumnal brew that makes you want to sit inside and enjoy it while the rain pours down and the temperature starts to drop. Medium bitterness backed by a slightly spicy caramel, very well balanced and very much enjoyable, though nothing out of the ordinary.

On tap at Bearís Lair. Pours brown with off-white head. Roasty, rich aroma is accompanied by the same roast and crystal while being balanced by a moderate bitterness.

lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 12 oz. bottle. Dark amber pour with decent head. Sweet malty characteristics with enough bitter to balance it out. Great seasonal beer. Wish it was year round.

LesArgen (244) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2011
This pleasant offering form Sierra Nevada is much subtler than the colour would suggest, particularly on the nose. Itís 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.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Poured brown into a mug shows a small, light tan head. The aroma is instantly dark roast coffee beans and cocoa. The palate is thin with no body, tasting of roasted malts. Slightly dry and bitter. I am not a huge fan, but itís not bad.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours a deep brown with frothy head; some lacing. Full bodied and malty. Very balanced flavor; leans slightly towards sweet. Clean finish. Nice brown ale.

Single bottle from craft beer outlet. Aroma of roasted malt, tastes of smoked coffee/chocolate. Good fall selection.
