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.

Big thanks to smchenry75 (Sean) for sending this my way in a recent trade; I've been wanting to try it for a while. 12 oz bottle with no freshness date, as is the case with all FFF brews, into a pint glass. I really wish they'd change their whole lack of dating scheme.

Pours a deep and dark ruby red with approximately half a finger of thick cream colored head. Spotty lacing as it speedily dissipates to a thin layer of tiny bubbles.

The nose yields robust roasted malt bomb aromas of caramel, toffee, vanilla and a lingering smokiness.

Tastes as smooth as smooth can be. All the before mentioned flavors are accounted for with the additional presence of hints of raisin a smidgen of bitter chocolate. Just an extraordinarily well balanced, malt lovers’ fantasy with just a mild, and I mean very mild, hop presence.

Medium to full bodied with a creamy and sticky consistency. As I said before, an amazingly smooth and easy drinking beer that would be ideal for sessioning, especially coming out of the summer, and into the fall months.

To be honest, I am a little surprised by just how much I loved this beer. I usually consider myself more of a hop-head, and don't really ever venture into this kind of malty territory. With that said, all I can really do at this point is raise my glass to another stellar offering from Three Floyds.

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.
