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 from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Date on bottle says 08/25/2014.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish amber with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of beige head which settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A toasty and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with hints of caramel and biscuit. Roasted barley malt with upfront hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, toast, and yeast along with hints of chocolate, cream, and nuts. Also some hints of smoke, peat, and leather. Sweet scent of brown sugar. Hops are pretty light. A solid malty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a toasty and sweet malt driven taste with notes of caramel, biscuit, and chocolate. Upfront roasted malt with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate, toasted bread, biscuit, yeast, and nuts. Sweet notes of brown sugar along with some cream. Subtle notes of peat, leather, and smoke. Subtle notes of earthy hops. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy and very smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid malty Scottish Ale. Solid toasty malt notes with some nice creamy smoothness.
