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 tasty beer for summer. Pours a dark brown with white head and decent lacing. Malty/ light coffee aroma. Bitter but smooth. Nice beer!

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 Brown pour, as it should be, with a nice head and lacing that lingers. Slight nose of roast absent hops. Light / medium bodied and well carbonated. Flavor is much like the nose, slightly nutty against a light roast. Very well balanced with the malt. Nice crisp finish with just the right touch of hop flavor and slight bitterness. This is one of SN’s not heavily hopped brews and should be well received by non-hop heads. A great transition beer to stouts with just a touch of roast.

lots of malt and hints of chocolate in the aroma. Malt, chocolate and some nuts in the taste with a crisp hop after taste. Very nice beer for the fall.

vulcanmeister (172) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2010
A sort of yeasty chocolaty aroma pours from bottle a nice light tranlucent brown with very nice rich long lasting tan head. The taste medium with a slightly creamy mouthfeel slightly bitter. The flavor is smoky, rich dark chocolate, with still this subtle yeasty flavor. The finish is satisfying with those smoky dark notes lingering over the subtle hops. Leaves a nice slight bitter chocolate tang at the end.

Light head, which lasts a long time but is rather light. Definite brown color. Very little aroma. Surely a brown ale flavor, with a hint of licorice, but rather bland overall. Slightly aqueous. Not bad, but not spectacular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

on tap.finalmente una birra della sierra che non sia improntata solo di luppolo ma con un buon equilibrio con sentori fruttati e maltati.un buon corpo e molto beverina,nel finale anche amarognola.

Dark brown, nearly opaque. Aromas of woodsmoke and sweet bread. Very Autumnal... perhaps I should wait until the weather cools down to sample this again. Anyway, the flavor is sweet caramel, a touch of smoke, and hops bitterness on the back end. Syrupy mouthfeel. Would be perfect around a campfire with trees turning orange in the mountains. Does Sierra Nevada ever brew a bad beer?

This Beer has a brownish golden color. It has a very full flavour, and packs it with a medium body. I think I detect a touch of something woody, or at least something that reminds me of wood. Maybe some dry sweet straw on the back end? It reminds me of walking on dry autumn leaves!

Solid - this is one of my favorite autumnal beers I can get. Roasty character from the more toasted malts, and not too nutty. Good, solid, well rounded beverage.
