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.

12 oz. Draft before MMJ concert. Slight molasses scent, kind of one dimensional. Dark brown pour, small head, pretty beer. Light body, crisp finishing. Dark bread crust, citrus touch on finish.

Ericular (965) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Dark, roasty malts with a little chocolate and some coffee. I donít like coffee flavor in a beer, so for this to be rated so well shows it was balanced or subtle enough to be enjoyable. The right amount of flavor and carbonation seem fitting for a cool fall day. Very good aftertaste for a roasty beer, in that itís not too bitter or long-lived.

Pours a dark chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a two finger, pillowy light beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. The glass is left coated with chunks of soapy lacing. Earthy, slightly smokey aroma with a decent balance of floral hops and roasted malt notes. Hop presence is stronger than expected with a grassy, floral character that slightly overpowers the bother notes. The malt bill gives off sweet and roasted notes with hints of caramel, toffee and smoke but again, itís earthier than I anticipated. On the lighter end of medium bodied with decent mix of bitter, sweet and roasted flavors. Surprisingly hop forward with some dry bitterness that lingers throughout, slightly overpowering the malt notes. Grassy and resinous with a floral pine presence thatís countered by lightly smoked malt, toffee, caramel and hazelnut. Thereís a decent amount of sweetness and interesting malt flavors but the hop presence is too aggressive for the style. Still, itís an enjoyable beer thatís easy to drink.

Not too bad. Fairly medium bodied. Toasty, roasty, and nutty. A pretty well crafted brown ale

12 ounce bottle pours a brown amber color, aromas of light chocolate, fall spices and some nuts. Flavor is the same, mostly nuts. Decent beer overall.

An ok brown, a little boring. Pours a dark brown, with a white head. Smells very nice, fruity. Taste is very carbonated, very malty, with a slight hoppy aftertaste. Have had better browns. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
