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.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin-looking light brown with hints of red, and a huge foamy head that falls to a skim over the top fairly quickly. Aroma is quite toasty for a brown ale, much more roastiness than one would expect. The smoked malt throws things off kilter. Flavor is quite malty, with a bit of sweetness coming underneath, and again the hint of smoked malt just seems out of place. Just a bit of hops evident on the finish, very un-Sierra Nevada in that regard. Palate is somewhat thin and watery, with no real carbonation. A nice brown ale that would be better if the smoked malt was left out.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Poured a deep mahogany brown, almost black, with a decent frothy beige head. Aroma is toast, nuts, cereal, and earthy. Taste is light sweetness, lightly bitter, nuts, coffee, and caramel. Palate is light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

The definition of standard. Nothing here stands out at all. Brown ale is a shitted on style, but I usually like it, this is one of the weaker ones though.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Mahogany. First aroma of burnt chestnut and dark chocolate, as well as bread and dried hay, with just a touch of piney, floral hop character. Roast malt immediately apparent on first sip, with a distinct smoky character and warming biscuit and rye flavors. Piney hop notes in the aftertaste, but overall hop influence is muted and doesnt distract from the dominant malt, only adding a decent amount of bitterness to the brew. A tad bit of slime on it but it keeps the aftertaste from becoming too short. Its a little early for an autumn beer but its great for cooler summer evenings.

YigSvartka (304) - 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.

scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Medium dark body with light tan head poured from a bottle. A little bit of a sweet roasted malt aroma. Alright taste fairly semi sweet chocolate beginninglasting dry roasted finish, with an odd nice lasting moutfeel.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Pours a medium brown with a medium tan head that lasts. Nice roasted nuts and dark chocolate on the nose. Good mouthfeel with bitter chocolate notes and enough hops to give it some balance. Good Autumn beer.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown color. Foamy tan-brown head. Hop nose and also heavy malts. Heavy heavy palate with hop and burnt malts, both roasty and nutty. Bitter malty finish.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a dark caramel/cola with a light tan head that dissipates. Slight aromas: caramel, iced coffee, floral, dough, and some vanilla. Like most of the Sierra stuff, very balanced flavor. Clean palate with some sticky. Decent.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Deep brown color, thick foamy head. Slightly hoppy aroma but very faint. Nutty, hoppy, earthy taste. Full body and finishes crisp.
