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.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice crystal clear dark mahogany hue with a thin half finger off white head that fades to leave a creamy halo and a very, very thin blanket. 4 (x .05 = .2)

S - Aromas of loads of caramel and malt sweetness, nice roasted notes, touches of a cereal grain. Lighter yeast, light nuttiness, almost brown ale like. 3.75 (x .2 = .75

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Rather malt heavy, big brown sugar, sweeter malts, caramel, light toffee, touches of chocolate. The yeast balances it out and there are some nice grains, but not getting much roast. 3.75 (x .45 = 1.688)

M - Mouthfeel is lighter bodied but almost heavy and syrupy. Just weighed down by a stickiness. 3.5 (x .1 = .35)

O - Overall, I've had much better representations of this style of beer. Had high hopes for it but just way, way to sweet/malt heavy. 3.5 (x .2 = .7)
