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.

poured out a deep caramel brown with a 1/4 to 1/2 inch head that dwindles and leaves no lacing to speak of.
smell was all malt, caramel some raisin and port. At first pour the aroma almost reminded me of chocolate covered raisins, As it warmed the alcohol was more present in the aroma and the smell was changed to that of brandy and port, still with a hint of the raisin quality. very nice.
taste was the same, chilled it was all malt, caramel with hints of port.as it warmed the alcohol was there with brandy and port flavors lingering.
So I bought another 6er recently and its no where enar what it was. possible bad batch. It was more barley winesque then anything and was plain harsh in the mouth. I dropped my scores based on that. It was harsher but still was a good beer just not as enjoyable as my first tasting.
