Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Tumbler is our take on the classic brown ale – full of roasted malt flavor but delicate on the palate and perfect for crisp fall days. Layered with notes of chocolate and toasted bread and a hint of smoke, Tumbler is the ultimate autumn beer, so grab a seat and watch as the leaves come tumbling down.

2014 - Available in Fall Variety Pack (no longer available standalone)

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: pours a clear brown, a beautiful copper when held to the light, into an American shaker with a solid finger of khaki head that leaves some wonderful lacing.

S: a barrage of roated nuts, toffee, leather. Altogether a very earthy, nutty beer.

T: a lot like the nose with the very first thing hitting the tongue being a bouquet of roasted nuts and a nice wood flavor. There is a great light leather note and an equally light darker fruit note and even some brown sugar.

MF: heavy, but not chewy or filling. Crisp flavor profile, great effervescence with a clean finish.

O: this is an amazing brown ale; to this point then best I have had. Every year it is among the top of my list to look fo on the shelves as far as seasonals. It makes me think of a late september or early october day thats still warm but damp and rainy. This beer and a movie are perfecte for that day.
