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- Amber colored beer with hints of red when held up to the light. Good carbonation, little head retention

S- Smoke. toffee, butter, chocolate

T/M- Smoky and sweet, very malty. All of the nose scents are also present in the flavor profile. The mouthfeel is rich and thick. A sipper, perhaps, but one worth savoring.

O- A very nice winter beer, one that holds up to the nip in the air and warms you up. While I would normally suggest pairing a beer in this style with salmon, here I am thinking perhaps chocolate cheescake or perhaps bacon wrapped apricots.

A: This beer pours a dark see through brown with a one inch white head.

S: I honestly dont get much from this beer. It has a bit of roasted malt, but other than that not much else.

T: This has an actually decent taste to the beer, but nothing special. At first you get a lot of malt, then it turns into a somewhat chocolaty taste.

M: This has a pretty decent mouthfeel. It is pretty smooth with a nice amount of crispness on my tongue and the back of my throat.

O: This is a pretty solid beer. I believe it has a lot of room to improve on, but its still pretty decent.
