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.

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.

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

Dusty, nutty earth aroma. Clear dark caramel brown with beige head that thins quickly. Taste is smooth mild malt, slight bitterness.

Interesting fruity and malty aroma. Quite effective carbonation in the mouth with a dark fruit flavour with a mild roast and a hint of spice. Very smooth and easy to drink. Perhaps not the most exciting, but drinkable.

Sparf (185) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2015
Nötig svag doft. Karaktäristisk maltarom med inslag av kakao. Brun färg. Ok skum. Tämligen söt och mycket maltig smak, lättrostad. Medelfyllig kropp och trevlig kolsyra. En bra amerikansk brun ale men ingen favorittyp.

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.

hero12 (184) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2010
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.

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

[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.
