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.

Parents brought me a couple of bottles on their trip here from Indianpolis. Poured a small tan head that continued to hold up. Deep amber in color, with ruby highlights. Aroma is big time caramelly malt, a little biscuit, and just a wee bit hint of peet (probably from the yeast). Flavor is big time malty, again rich caramel, and slightly biscuitty. Medium mouthfeel. Finished sweet, but there is enough hop bitterness to keep it from finishing cloyingly sweet. Overall a very nice beer, I will buy a bunch of this whenever I can find it!

From a bottle into a pint glass.

A: pours dark red with about 1/4 inch of thin foam that disappears quickly. I did get several rings of lace that clung to my glass through out.

S: dominated by yeast and malts.

T: a bit sweet at times giving off brown sugar notes. Yeast, malts, and a bit of oak bitterness at the end.

M: smooth and quite easy drinking. I would say medium for mouthfeel

O: not even close to my favorite from Three Floyd's or even a Scottish Ale for that matter. Not bad...but not great either.
