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.

Could use more aromatics but has viscous mouthfeel, toffee, caramel, coffee, and all around good matliness. A little sugary? I enjoyed this beer.

A nice brown ale. Pours a medium brown color. Aromas of malt and nut. Flavor of caramel nut and coffee. Can taste the hops a but more in this one that other browns that I had had before. But in a good way. A solid brown ale.

Not terrible buy not much to it. Very bland for a brown or for a fall seasonal. Watery with a little toffee, not much roastiness. Drinkable though. The high rating for this is baffling. This is one of the blandest browns and blandest sierra nevada brews.

Tasty good-good. Nice, stern brown depth of flavors from the pour out of the 12 FL. OZ. bottle onto and into a scrubbed english pint glass with thin scrims of lace clinging to the high edge remaining and an earthen swallow of tasty good-good goodness, and it just so happens that there were a few hours of dry snow slowly falling to accompany the tastings, too. i do so love beer, too.

Pours a nice brown color and leaves a nice tan head. Has a good roasted malt flavor that leaves a slight bitterness on your palate. As of this point, my favorite Sierra Nevada. Overall, a very decent brown ale.

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Pours a clear dark iced coffee brown with golden highlights and a modest but persistent off-white head. Aromas of coffee, grains, brown sugar, and candied orange peel. Grainy sweet base with notes of chocolate, coffee, and orange; very slightly bitter herbal finish. Light body, creamy texture, soft to average carbonation. Pleasant, quaffable, and toasty.

24oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint glass. Bottled on July 8th. Pours a deep brown. Not opaque. Exhibits good carbonation. Two inches of lumpy head forms and quickly dissipates. Fair amount of lacing. Nutty, roasted malt on the nose with a touch of coffee and dark chocolate notes. Medium bodied and just enough carbonation to make the mouthfeel nice and easy. Definitely sessionable. Sweeter on the palate. The roasted, nutty flavors come across after those of semisweet chocolate. This is the best brown ale I have had in a long time.

Poured from bottle, drank from pint glass. Full bodied amber that is rather inoffensive. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Unos, this is a terrific implementation of a brown ale. Deep caramel color with a slight sweet finish

Murrow (69) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled. Pours an amber-brown, white-tan head. Noticeable hop aroma with strong smoky roasted malt character. Savory, slightly sweet caramel flavor up front with hint of hop bitterness, finishing with crisp balance of malt and hops. Hint of alcohol on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, light to medium bodied. Rich, enticing beer that is very warming; a welcome experience as autumn approaches.
