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.

bottle; hazy brown with small beige head; aroma-roasty, molasses, spruce; taste-no real sweetness, moderate bitterness but lasting, moderate carbonation. Interesting aroma, little watered-down

A nutty aroma at first with hints of chocolate. A smooth creamy mouthfeel for this tasty brown ale that goes down easy and is malty on the palate with just enough hops to bitter it slightly.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin-looking light brown with hints of red, and a huge foamy head that falls to a skim over the top fairly quickly. Aroma is quite toasty for a brown ale, much more roastiness than one would expect. The smoked malt throws things off kilter. Flavor is quite malty, with a bit of sweetness coming underneath, and again the hint of smoked malt just seems out of place. Just a bit of hops evident on the finish, very un-Sierra Nevada in that regard. Palate is somewhat thin and watery, with no real carbonation. A nice brown ale that would be better if the smoked malt was left out.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Poured a deep mahogany brown, almost black, with a decent frothy beige head. Aroma is toast, nuts, cereal, and earthy. Taste is light sweetness, lightly bitter, nuts, coffee, and caramel. Palate is light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

LesArgen (312) - 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.

FudgeSociety2 (311) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2012
The definition of standard. Nothing here stands out at all. Brown ale is a shitted on style, but I usually like it, this is one of the weaker ones though.

eruizgarcia (306) - - 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.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Mahogany. First aroma of burnt chestnut and dark chocolate, as well as bread and dried hay, with just a touch of piney, floral hop character. Roast malt immediately apparent on first sip, with a distinct smoky character and warming biscuit and rye flavors. Piney hop notes in the aftertaste, but overall hop influence is muted and doesnít distract from the dominant malt, only adding a decent amount of bitterness to the brew. A tad bit of slime on it but it keeps the aftertaste from becoming too short. Itís a little early for an autumn beer but itís great for cooler summer evenings.

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.
