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.

Pours a very nice mahagony with a thin dirty tan head. The aroma is dominated by toffee, burnt ashes, and sweet caramel. An intense sweet maltiness dominates. Achohol and other fusels come throught the middle, with burnt ashes in the background. The finish attempts to dry-out, but a cloying sweetness mixed with alcohol remains. As a positive, the body is firm and smooth, with almost perfect carbonation for this style.

This ale is a bit of out balance. While 90 and 120 Schilling Scotish Ales should have a prounounced maltiness, they should not be cloying. The cloying sweetness detracts from both the taste and drinkability.
