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.

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.

Dark, roasty malts with a little chocolate and some coffee. I dont 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 its not too bitter or long-lived.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
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, its 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 thats countered by lightly smoked malt, toffee, caramel and hazelnut. Theres a decent amount of sweetness and interesting malt flavors but the hop presence is too aggressive for the style. Still, its an enjoyable beer thats easy to drink.

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

This is a brand new seasonal from Sierra Nevada and pretty good stuff too. The pour is mediocre. Its brown and clear and the head doesnt last. The nose is mildly roasty w/ a sort of bread yeast thing going on in the background. The level of carbonation is surprisingly high and Im sort of undecided on how much I like it. It does add a crispness but the beer would still be quite dry and drinkable w/ lower carbonation. This is overall a rather mild beer w/ mostly roast character dominating and firm bitterness in the finish. Like I said, this is pretty good stuff but it is probably going to be one of the Sierra Nevada seasonal people get least excited about.

Starts off promising enough with more malt then I have seen in an SN brew outside of BF, but then just like its big brother, the hops overpower.

Another impressive beer from Sierra Nevada. Though I love most brown ales I can get my hands on, this on was really just somewhat in the middle of the road with its delivery. The aroma was somewhat nutty with hints of malts and barely, while the taste was a little bitter and somewhat chewy. A good drink, but I dont think Ill seek it out again.
