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.

This beer is fairly refreshing for a fall seasonal. I am wondering if this is the same as the old brown ale released a few years back. Overall a great beer. Has lots of nuttiness, and a touch of caramel.

So glad I can get this as a single... Slightly foul, smoky odor. Bitter, nutty flavor. Not necessarily bad taste but cant get past that smell. Maybe a bad bottle, or maybe Sierra Nevada should stick to the pales.

I am not a big fan of Brown Ales, but this one is good. Poured a dark brown. Aroma was of rich malts, nutty, roasted malt. Taste was toasted nuts, mild roasted malts. Mediumish body. Well balanced. A good brew.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2011 RERATE. this is a good brown ale with some decent complexity and nice mouthfeel. pricky carbonation. i enjoy the lack of sweetness. mostly roasty malts in the flavor, a little bit fruity, which makes it more fun. finish is pretty long.

Chocolate, roast and bread in the aroma, pours a well carbonated brown with dense tan head good lacing. Nice soft profile medium bodied, chocolate, caramel, malty, little bit of roast. Yeah there is a touch of smoke.

Dark amber pout w/ an off-white head. Aroma is malt, toffee, caramel. Taste is lightly sweet., nicely balanced. Chocolate, malt, caramel, nuts. Sweet finish. Easy to drink, not overly exciting but pleasant.

Pours very dark amber with a thick frothy head that lasts forever. Sweet malts with some hops for balance. Pretty good flavor and easy to drink but just a tad watery mouth feel, nothing really special.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - APR 10, 2011
Red amber with a off white head head. Floral and piney notes dominating. Some caramel in there as well but not as much as in many other brown ales. A thick mouthfel and a good bitterness in the end. One of the better brown ales I had.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2010
12 oz bottle into a dimpled mug. Brown in color with a reddish tinge. Fluffy off-white head. Hefty aroma of bread, chocolate, caramel, figs, toasted nuts. Roasty flavor. Lots of caramel and bready malts up front. Maybe just a touch of chocolate. Tiny bit of hop bitterness and flavor towards the end, but it finishes clean. Nicely balanced. Thinnish texture. Low to medium carbonation. Very tasty and a nice alternative to all the Oktoberfest beers that come out around this time, but there are better brown ales out there to sip on as you watch the leaves change.

On tap at the moon. Dark brown color, beige coating head. Nutty chocolate aroma, which continues in the flavor with the addition of coffee taste. I didnt pick up smoked flavor specifically, but it is a complex malt profile. Id be interested in what they would come up with in a nut brown.
