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.

6 pack from Giant in Vienna. Sierra is my ALL TIME favorite brewery and I consider them the pioneers of pale and IPA craft type brews.. Now with this addition to their mix, I must say they truely can do it all.. Pours a chocolate almost cocoa brown with a scent of toasted nuts or even melted chocolate. The taste is quite sensational with that wonderful mix of malted caramel and the slight bitterness of challenger hops.. Perfect beer to drink with a nice cigar, possibly an alec bradley or bolivar (both were great with the Tumbler). The chocolate hits your palate early but then fades into the background as a malted crispness takes the forefront with the finest hoppy complexion. very very good brown ale.. great as the leaves change..

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

12oz btl. Pours a medium to light bodied brown with an off white head. Has a very roasty malt aroma. Tastes of roasted coffee and hazelnut, some vanilla. Very sweet and rich, a good grocery store beer for sure.

12 ounce stubby bottle. Say what you want about Sierra Nevada, but it’s nice to see the company not rest on their laurels in terms of the seasonals and other offerings. This is the first time I can recall them taking a swing at a brown ale. Pours a deep brown with dark ruby undertones that comes out a little bit lighter than the color of Coca Cola. Large bubbly head that goes at least a half inch if not a little bit higher. Moderate lacing. Aroma is all roasted malt, almost bordering on smokey. There’s some dark chocolate fudge notes as well. Smells like a smoked chocolate chip cookie. Light and creamy mouthfeel, almost like a cream stout. Beer is fairly assertive, bitterness levels are relatively high for the style. Taste is almost all roasted and toasted malt. Kind of has a sourdough toast or toasted English muffin type of taste to it. There’s no real hop character, save maybe some light orange hops in the finish which play well off the chocolate flavors throughout the body of the beer. Solidly constructed, almost like drinking a porter. I like this one quite a bit, and it will be a great autumn drink if and when it finally cools down outside.

Ruby reddish brown color. Clear. Nice thick off white creamy head. The head is sticking around for a good while and leaving a nice bit of lacing on the sides. Nice roasted, nutty malt jumps out at me first with the smell. An earthy undertone in the nose. Also getting a doughy, bready, biscuit smell. All of the aromas really shine as the beer warms. Very well balanced. Nice prominent roasted malt in the taste with a bit of an alcohol bite at the end. Slight hint of coffee bean in the taste. Not overpowering however. Only the smallest amount of bitterness works its way through in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Dry. Really coats the palate. A crisp dryness and somewhat chewy. This brew definitely gets me ready for Autumn. I really like this beer. Very solid. I’m not one to sit and drink beer after beer during the evening, but I could have a few of these and be quite satisfied.
