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.

Great Scotish ale. Good toasted malt flavors, with a bit of toffee, caramel flavors in there. Still more of a fan of a good wee heavy, but I like the modest hop balance I don't get fro ma lot of Scotish ales. I will drink this again.

Pours a dark copper color with a small yellowish tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and some hops. Tastes of malt, chocolate and caramel. That description is dead on!

BCAR (222) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2003
A perfect fall ale. Deep mahogany color. Malty aroma with some syrup to accompany. Full malt flavor with a hint of hop and a nice alcohol-kick finish. Another great from 3 Floyds!

3fourths (8395) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Pine and scotch aroma, musty and nutty, full of vanilla and brown-ale type malt aroma. Thick and creamy, turning to sweet vanilla and maple before a stinging scotch finish. Nice and roasty. Like a maple coffee creamer flavor with a bite.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Pours with no head, an opaque brown body with reddish highlights. The flavor is malty sweet, with some smokiness. This is avery enjoyable beer.

Frank (3204) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Brown with just a hint of red. Foamy white head with a couple small spots of lace. A sharp bite on the tongue at first but the swallow is actually quite smooth. Gentle carbonation. A bit on the watery side for the amount of malt present. Fruity with notes of raisin and gauze. A sticky vinous flavor lingers after the finish. I have mixed feelings about this. It's tasty enough but it lacks complexity and is a bit overly sweet for its thinnish texture. It just doesn't really grab my attention like I'd like it to.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2003
Decent malty aroma and nice tan head. Flavor's got more caramel malt than many Scottish ales, hops very subtle. Malty finish.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 12oz. Bottle fresh from the brewery. Dark amber with a small head that dies down quickly. Nutty malty sweet aroma and smelling really fresh. Smooth body with a big malt feel. Hops are there, but ever so gently so not to overpower the terrific malt blend. Flavor leans towards a roasted malt yet I taste a subtle hint of cocoa in there. Not anything like most other Scottish ales which I find too malty and sweet. This one is really quite nice in my opinion. Really fresh tasting. I thank Bunkypop once more for his hauling this back from the brewery in Munster. Much appreciated.
