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.

YigSvartka (195) - 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.

Sparf (160) - 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.

Strangebrewer (954) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
bottle. Poured clear auburn with a tan head. NIce hearty aroma of malt, toasty sweet rye bread. Medium bodied, creamy mouhtfeel that finishes a touch astringent. Really good malt forward beer here, earthy, flavours of smoke, cocao, molasses, roasted nuts with some peppery hops.

Bottle sample at a tasting at zvsn’s place. Clear brownish with small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, some herbs, honey, some hops and leafs. Balanced sweetness and sourness in the flavor, grassy, some herbs, light maltiness, some fresh fruits and notes of lemon. Medium carbonation, medium-bodied.

chinchill (2765) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2015
served in pint glass at Taco Mac (from notes). Pours a dark reddish mahogany with a short, and short-lived light tan head. Clear. Leaves some lacing despite scant head. Somewhat weak aroma, but spicy hops are present with the expected malts. The aroma improves a little with warming. The malt balance seems a bit darker than usual; this becomes more obvious in tasting. Nicely nutty. Nice dark roasted malt finish with a gentle and subtle hop presence. O - a nice ABA and seasonal brew.

Bottle at home. Solid brown ale. Great for the style. Pours an appealing brown with reddish hue. Some lacing. Quickly dissipating head. Nice roated malt and smoke on the nose. Drinks really smoothly with enough hops in there to keep in from being one dimensional and overly sweet. Definite smoke, toffee, citrus, roast and nutty notes in a really balanced way. Thoroughly enjoyable.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass. Clear brown with a minimal beige head. Nutty nose, with earth notes, light caramel and faint chocolate. Soft roasty flavors, medium bitterness, nuts, brown sugar. Slightly over carbonated, pretty balanced but lacks some maltiness. OK.
