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.

Hmm... opened with barely a squeek and poured with no head. Itís carbonated, but barely. I guess shipping can take itís toll :P Pours an elegant, crystal clear-but-dark brown that shines red when held up to light. Very neat. Aroma is very mild, but thatís probably due to the utter lack of a head I got. A vigorous swirl at half glass pulls up dates, chocolate, smoke and malt. Nice. Flavor is mellow and rich- chocolate again, malt, smoke, dark bread, caramel. Again, itís a bit flat, and the finish seems to coat my mouth substantially. All in all a good beer from FFF... but whoís suprised about that?

Deep brown/black. Nice tan head. Caramel malt aroma. Nice malty flavors with some toffee, and a little kick of hops at the finish.

Got this one out of a bottle. Nice colored head, brownish and creamy, which left some lace. The color of the beer itself is a nice robust dark brown. Almost no aroma whatsoever from this bottle. The taste has a bit of caramel and some chocolate, and a bit of smokiness. You can really taste the malt and itís also a little more on the bitter side than most Scottish Ales Iíve had, which is good. Goes down and puts a warmth in your belly. I still like Skullsplitter a little more, but Three Floyds is really doing Indiana proud.

Dark chestnut brown w/ mahogany hue. Tight, creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel w/ hints of coffee & smoke. Full, oily body. Lightly roasty chocolate, toffee, caramel & molasses flavour w/ some earthy, spicy hops & a long bitter finish.

Chocolate and coffee in the aroma, ruby, small toffee head. Tastes like a melted tootsie roll, some orange hints also. Delightfully rich and bitter. Terrific! Thank You joey_capps.

clear dark brown with red highlights, thin white head, sweet barley malt aroma thatís slightly coffee-ish, flavor is alcoholic with strong accents of chocolate, thin palate which leads to a dry finish thats a little on the thin side, but the label is pretty tight, Bobby Bruce can rage but heís a little over rated in my book.

(draft) A nice dark brown color that revealed red when help up to light. I thought the taste was very good, though there seemed to be a slight gritty feel until the head had dissipated. The slightly bitter finish made me want to drink again to get back to the nice flavor. Not recommended on an empty stomach, as I wanted another pint but had to decline.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
pours a very carbonated deep amber/red, sightly hazy. nose is malty, underpinned by a mellow roartiness. flavor is very smooth, dominated by malt notes and a mellow chocolaty-ness. palate is excellent, with none of the stickiness that so often accompanies malty beers. a pleasure to drink-lush w/out being overbearing.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Great malty aroma of chocolate, hazelnut, caramel, and hints of coffee. Brown with red-orange tints, thin beige head. Interesting blend of chocolate and caramel malt with fruity hop flavors, bit of a roasty finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Great aroma on this beer, a little too much hop flavor, though. I like my Scotch ales to be all malt with little to no hop character.

Pours a dark brown with an off-white somewhat thin head. Malty aroma with a light whiskey aroma swirling around and a little alcohol detected too. A sweet, sharp malty flavor with a faint whiskey aftertaste and some chocolate. The sweetness here is prevelant. Overall palatable but uneventful. Just OK., but worth trying.
