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 loverís delight.

Poured deep brown with thick decadent tan head...smelled roasty malt, hops...taste is malts, with sugar, caramel, mild smokiness and a hint of chocolate...much hoppier than I expected...very bitter finish with heavy alcohol accents...

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2006 Medium brown body with a sandy head. Warm caramel nose, a touch of brown sugar, and fruit. Aroma suggests a candied apple. Malty flavor with an unexpected acid note that keeps this clean on the palate. Also has a roasty edge and a distinct hop presence. A solid Scotch Ale, but a little on the roasty side.

super dark and rich dark malty, bubble-gum aromas. some smoke too. lots of malt with light bitterness, super-strong presence of toast and butter. quite good, but itís got sort of a ídustyí taste that detracts just a bit. enjoyable.

Damn, now this is what Iím talkiní about! Very rich, malty sweet aromas with carmel and toffee and a little bit of smoke. Great flavors. Silky smooth body and awesome malty goodness. Finishes soft and a little sweet. Damn good. Probably the best scotch ale Iíve had.

pours a dark brown with a fast disipating head. roasty coffee/malt aroma. primarily roast malt taste that has a nice hop side that comes out later in the taste. i just noticed this is 7%, it is very well hidden. this is an enjoyable brew, thanks for the bottles Bunkypop.

Amber brown w/light off white head. Hop nose w/roasted notes and molasses. Heavey weight w/bitter sweet carmel finish. Carmel, pine, molasses, nuts, and cherry. Great beer.

Reddish brown.Hoppy nose.Piney.When you sniif this you can almost sense that you are in a virgin stand of pine trees.Not standing with a virgin in pine trees!!! This is a good beer.No alcohol presence but the piney flavor here isnít so strong that you canít get some malts and yeast.

Bottle. Dark brown pour. Quickly dissipating tan head. Interesting unique malt/spicy aroma. A little yeasty as well. Heavy, but pleasant malt taste - well balanced - the mouthfeel was surprisingly crisp for such a malt heavy beer. Nice hop kick at the end. I enjoy this style, and this example was one of the best Iíve had.
