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.

Pours brilliantly clear with a 2-inch tan head which settles to 1/8 inch. The color is dark mahogany with a hint of red. The nose suggests coffee, wood, malt, and bread. The body is surprisingly light. Modest carbonation. The palate suggests toast, coffee, nuts, roasted malt, and earthiness. Decent lingering. Some Belgian lace does form. Thirst quenching, not moreish. The ABV is not noticeable. Very pleasant.

Pours a clear brown hue with a small fading head that laces the glass as it goes down. Metallic, malt, and roasted nuts aroma. Notes of light cocoa, chocolate, a touch of bittering hops, and roasted nuts.

After a string of bad luck with different brown ales I decided to try this one. Got the big boy and was not disappointed. Sierra Nevada puts out some good stuff.

Appearance is a dark translucent brown. Head is off white, small. Good lacing. Smells of roasted coffee and malts. Tiny bit of brown sugar and earthiness. Taste is coffee, caramel, bread, malty and finishes with some crisp hops. Mouthfeel is smooth, yet gives some bite on the tongue. Overall this is one of my favorite autumn browns. It feels and looks like fall.

Murrow (93) - Kirkwood, Missouri, 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.

I love beer from Sierra Nevada but this one did not impress me. The aroma was somewhat nutty with hints of malts and barely, while the taste was a little bitter and somewhat boring. An o.k. drink, but I dont think Ill buy it again

Really nice deep caramel look with a slightly smokey taste - thankfully not nutty just features the malt
