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)

I've had the Tumbler before....i guess I just never rated it. The beer pours a deep brown with creamy slightly offwhite head which is leaving a nice lace. The smell has some rich sweet malt with hints of nyut meg. The taste has good bready/biscuity foundation with bitter hops to balance. The mouthfeel was a medium to light brown ale...the carbonation is a bit strong and detracting from teh taste. Overall its a decent beer.

12oz bottle poured in a Great Divide shape pint
2012 vintage

A - Pours a clear dark brown with 2 fingers of off-white that has quality staying power. Very impressive lacing all the way down the glass.

S - Sharp toasted grains, brown sugar, earthy, nutty, dried grass, nice fall aromas.

T - Roasted grains, sweet dark bread, mild spicy hops blend in, has a sweet nutty characteristic, earthy berry fruit, nutty tea like bitterness on the finish.

M - Light body, firm carbonation, wet middle with a drying finish.

I can't believe I've passed this up every year for so long. One of the best all around brown ale's that I've had the pleasure of drinking.
