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.

[A] Watery java and nutty aromas. [A] Pours a very thin, weak, watery looking brown from the bottle; sits a quite clear brown into a pint glass. Some tannish head. [F] A good redeemer here, there are some solid coffee and nutty notes. Still not solid enough to compete with the best of the best. [P] Crisp finish. Mild mouth. Drinkable. [O] A little less than what I was expecting. Much less than phenomenal. Quite pissed, as I’m sure this new seasonal will last for awhile, and it didn’t at all impress me.

Bottle: Pours a clear chestnut brown with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and malty with some toffee hints. The taste is just well balanced. The richness of the malts give way to a roasty finish. I wasn’t sure how to rate the mouth feel but like the taste there is balance. It’s on the lighter side of medium. Overall this is a very enjoyable beer and I don’t consider myself a fan of browns. Nice job SN.

Pours a very dark brown with small, off white head, some lacing. Aroma of nuts, roast, and coffee. Taste is more of the same with a barely noticeable hops finish. Medium to heavy bodied with average carbonation and a slightly bitter finish.

BiochemProf (179) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Clear cola brown with ruby highlights topped with a thick khaki persistent head. Surprisingly little aroma detected (perhaps too cold). Fait hints of toast and a very faint hop aroma ... as I mad my way through the glass I began to detect a whiff of black olives ... DMS? A wonderful but very slight smokey flavor coupled with faint toasty malt. Very smooth ... almost lager like. Medium bodied mouthfeel, medium-ow carbonation and no astringency. Lacks the malty robustness of a typical American Brown Ale but I really liked it once I adjusted my expectations. Almost lager like in smoothness . Pleasant non-overpowering malt flavors with just a hint of hops. I really like the touch of smoke. I wonder if actual smoked malt was used or this is just an artifact.

marv3mania (179) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is reddish-brown with a moderate tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel, light chocolate, and lightly roasted malt. Taste follows the nose. Very nice, a great beer for a cool autumn evening.

Slight malt nose when first poured. Slight chocolate taste with coffee finish. Second sip has some spice notes, but very subtle. Also has a nice hop flavor finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Taste: caramel malt, but overall not very sweet. Palate: dry and a bit of yeast.

12 oz bottle. Pours a very thin brown color with tints of red. Nutty and chocolaty notes. Decent for a brown ale.
