COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
2011 vintage - 7.0% abv

Light grapes and wood aroma. Brown color, low carbonation, low head. Brown sugar flavors. Light body, somewhat flatish. Maybe the sample was too small, but I found it to be kind of boring.

ah, another great beer from three floyds. this one, as the description says is definately "a true malt-lover’s delight." but it also has a satisfying slight hoppy finish to balance it out nicely.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2008 This one surprised me. Very pretty deep Bock-ish coloring. At first smell, like a Brown ale. First taste is the same. Once I get past the dark malts, the same hops that are used in the AK are used here, though to a lesser degree. This is how a dark malt based beer should taste. No weird grainy tastes, just the finer nuances of the malts, complemented with a luxurious hop complex. Simply wonderful.

Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Light beige head. Malt, butterfatness, some sweetness and a light touch of hops in the aroma. Light caramel, bread, hops and some spices in the flavour. Medium bodied, but finishes a litlle weak. Some bitterness is present on the palate.

Deep deep amber,thin head,not much in the nose except a little hops and sweetness. Not as sweet as it smelled. Decent mouthfeel but the taste was basically caramelly, a bit bitter and dryish with only a hint of malt. Ok but not impressed. I will give em a thumbs up for hiding the ABV but then again 7% is not that high.

Murky brown with little head. I could smell the hops as well as the malt which isn’t normal for me. Has a roasted smell with a hint of chocolate. Very smooth with the initial malty taste dying fast. Taste is rather bland other than decent malts with a hint of chocolate and possibly raisin with a weak finish that doesn't hide the alcohol.

Poured the color of the bottle with some surprising level of carbonation. The aroma had the prune/raisin smell of a belgina bruin. The malt quantity was NOT as advertised, as the alcohol tore right through the flavor. There is a "roastiness" to this, that reminds of an old-style ale. There doesn’t appear to be any sweetness or biterness, yet the dark chocolate hints were there. Sir Robert did finish with a lively kick, but alas it might have been his last kick down my throat.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Deep copper/brown with a beige, foamy head. Aroma is malty, fruity, and a touch of citrus/hops. Medium bodied with a creamy smooth texture. Full, robust flavor, sweetness, maltiness. Excellent.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Pours a deep brown with a slight off-white head. Aromas of grass, caramel, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is a little thin for the style and light-bodied??? a surpsrise considering most scotch ales seem to be at leat medium bodied , if not full.. Flavors of caramel, raisins and a slight prune flavor. A dissapointment from one of the better brewers in the world.

12oz bottle Dark brown/amber, fizzy, no sustained head or lace. Big dark malt aroma, some roasty slightly smoky notes too. Full bodied, bittersweet malty beer. I’d agree with Eyedrink it did remind me of an Old Ale a bit. Some nice chocolate, roasty accents. Very enjoyable beer with a nice lingering malt finish. Thanks to jsquire for sending this one my way!
