Notes/Commercial Description:
30 IBUs - A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt lover’s delight.

A- Pours a muddy, silt, red with a creamy tan head that fades rather quickly but leaves a decent bit of sticky lacing.

S- Caramel, smoked malt, and some dried dark fruit. Nothing really stands out, and it's not really giving me much to go on. It's not bad, but not very powerful on the nose.

T- Mmmmm... it's like smoked caramel covered dates. This is where the smoke shines like it's supposed to. Some brown sugar sweetness, a touch of grilled pineapple from the hops,

M- NIcely carbonated, but it has a slick feel going down. Leaves a nice dry smokiness rolling around your tongue.

O- Very nice. Not top shelf as far as Scotch Ale's go, but I could see myself drinking this on a semi-regular basis if it was available near me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- Deep mahogany with amber accents. Dense khaki head

S- Smokey peat, cocoa nibs, crystal malts.

T- Follows nose well. Slight bitterness present for a style that doesn't normally have it. Lots of roasted malts and caramel. Some bready character.

M- Creamy, lighter body. Rich, yet smooth. Dry finish.

O- Very good. Top notch for the style.
