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)

Great brown color gives off a chocolatey cardboard aroma. The scent is a touch chalky, toasted and nutty. The flavor is dry chocolate malt, smoky, shoe leather, toasted, nutty and a bit of graham cracker. Overall, not the best brown but still tasty enough.

Tastes much better than I remember. Mmm... bitter and chocolatey, with a touch of tobacco. Almost like a porter, but lighter of course. Somewhat dry and spicy; not sweet like you would expect. Well rounded and super drinkable. Now I wish they would bring this back in six packs!

A. Regular poor 1 ½ inch white/yellow soapy/thick head. Very light carbonation. Color is delicious amber with shadows of brown. 3.75
S. Carmel, Smokey, and as the bottle says toasted bread. 3.5
T. Same as it smells. The alcohol is very evident. Warm in my chest. After taste is alcohol. 3.5
M. Watery and warm alcohol. 4.25
O. Just a typical Brown ale nothing special, but still good. Give it a try. Hard buzz for 5.5% ABV. 3.25

Poured a very dark brown, with two fingers of beige head that settled to about a quarter of an inch and stayed to the end. The aroma is sweet roasty malt, caramel, and just a slight hint of grassy hops. The taste is dark roasted malt, with just a bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly light for such a dark beer, with a good bit of carbonation to add a nice feel on the palate. Overall, this is not one of my favorite styles, but one I may have to look into more often.
