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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Much better than I remember this being! Instead of a metallic and burnt caramel edge like I was expecting, I get a much more round nuttiness with only a hint of roast/char note. Feels nice, moderate to full bodied yet still fairly drinkable.

YigSvartka (287) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Opaque copper brown. Minuscule beige head. Pleasant caramel, malt, vanilla, nutmeg, and slight cinnamon aroma. Mid bodied and quite smooth. Caramel, malt, vanilla, roast, mild milk chocolate and a tiny bit of spice. Nice easy drinking seasonal.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Draught at Bierhaus. Pours a clear ruby brown with a thin white lacing. Nose is really off, smells very musty like the inside of an old wardrobe, with a light (probably intended) fruity and hay overtone. Taste is a big improvement, with a medium sweetness followed by a tart finish - hints of bread, citrus and fig on the palate. Dry finish with a medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, poor as far as Sierra Nevada goes, and very disappointing.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a touch of amber and a thick tan head. Malty, nutty aroma with a bit of wood smoke. Delicious, crisp flavor reminds me of fall. A bit of citrus with some grassy, smokey, wood flavor as well. Quite good, although getting this beer out in July/August seems to be jumping the gun a bit. I will say it will likely be better for early fall than late fall (although in Columbia it will work for late fall as well as early winter). I will buy this again.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - AUG 14, 2012
(35,5 cl bottle) Chestnut-brown colour, slightly hazy, tanned head. Aroma is roasted, with a whiff of smoke. Notes of coffee and cocoa or milk chocolate, along with wet leaves, earthy, nutty (walnuts) and leathery notes. Reminds me of not/only lightly roasted coffee beans as well. Enough hops (herbal, with hints of citrus and flowers) to balance the malts and give the beer a certain freshness and a prolonged aftertaste. Taste is medium bitter, without cloying sweetness. I like this one! Full of character, in no way less interesting than other SN beers I have tried. It seems perfectly fitting for autumn, too. Definitely raises the bar in the brown ale category for me.
