I'm not a Brown Ale fan but love Greenbush beer so had to try. This one happen to be barrel aged, good aroma, good taste and flavor. If you're a Brown Ale fan my guess is this one will satisfy your palate!

This is a fun beer. Lots of rich malt with sweetness and a nice flavor profile. Maple, brown sugar and chocolate. Great finish with just hints of the high abv.

Exceptional. All the crisp, smooth, malty drinkability of a brown with the high sweetness and an almost barrel like character from the maple syrup

Bottle received as an extra in a trade recently.

This one pours a dark rustic looking brown, with a half inch head, and just a small amount of lacing.

Smells like toasted brown bread, bittersweet caramel, and earthy maple syrup.

This is a pretty solid but average brown ale, definitely elevated by the use of the maple sap. Using sap rather than the syrup gives it a more subtle, less sweet and more earthy maple flavor. There's the classic caramel/toffee/nutty/brown bread brown ale flavor as well, with some steely pine flavor as well, most likely from hops.

This is medium bodied, with a toasty and fairly crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate level of carbonation.

This was pretty solid, but not spectacular.

It’s basic, ya know? But the thing about basic is that it’s not always that bad. Remember your first basic girl? Solid as hell. Marry her? Nah. But a couple of double double’s and some after dinner monkey play ain’t all that bad. And I like that. I sip. I chill. I do the damn thing. And the damn thing does me. Cheers, you wild animals.

I picked up a four pack of Greenbush's Doomslayer last week at The Lager Mill. I've never had this beer before, but a Brown Ale brewed with maple sap sounds a little interesting and I thought it was worth a shot, so lets see how it goes. Bottled on 3/27/15. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a teku.

A- The label looks nice, it's got a good design to it and I think it's slightly eye catching. It poured a nice dark brown color that took on more of brighter brown color when held to the light with a fingers worth of light tan head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some spotty lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness that is the first to show up and it imparts a light maple syrup like aroma that's followed by the malts which impart some nice toasted malt and sweet malt aromas. Up next comes a light nutty aroma with a little more sweet and toasted malts coming through. This beer has a pretty nice aroma, the maple sap is noticeable.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with that maple sap being the first to show up and it imparts a light maple syrup flavor that leads right into the malts which impart those same sweet malt and toasted malt aspects that I got in the aroma. On the finish there's a noticeable nutty flavor with just a little bit of bitterness and some more sweetness and it had a maple and slightly nutty aftertaste.

M- Smooth, a little crisp, a little creamy, on the lighter side of being full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was nice and it worked well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a pretty nice beer and I thought it was a nice example of the style, I've only had a few Imperial Brown Ale and with the maple aspect this one reminds me of a lighter version of Shorts Woodmaster that isn't nearly as nutty. This beer has nice drinkability it's smooth, a little crisp, a little creamy, a little filling and the taste did a nice job at holding my attention, but I think one would be my limit, it might get too filling after more than one. What I like the most about this beer was how well the maple sap aspect worked with it, it made it sweeter, but it added some nice subtle flavors. What I like the least about this beer is that I wish the nutty aspect showed up a little more. I would buy this beer again, but it's nothing I'm going to stock up on and I'll be interested to see how it ages. All in all I liked this beer, it was pretty much just what it said it was and in the end I enjoyed it. IT's not a favorite Greenbush beer, but it is one of the better Imperial Brown Ales that I've had. Nice job guys, I enjoyed this one, keep it up.
