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

Decent malty aroma and nice tan head. Flavor's got more caramel malt than many Scottish ales, hops very subtle. Malty finish.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2003
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.

jsquire (3562) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Clear amber color with an attractive beige head that left good lace. I like this beer much more than I remembered. Lots of caramel sweetness with a creamy mouthfeel and high carbonation on the tounge. As with all Three Floyds, hops shine in the finish, but more within style than some of their other beers.

This is a pretty good Scottish ale a little different but still good. Flavor is hoppy, sweet,caramel, and malty. Finish is smooth and clean.

Bottle. Dark mahogany color with a small off-white head. Mild aroma, sweet, a little smokey. Rich malty flavor with a little peat and hops in the finish. Nice smooth body with creamy carbonation.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Light brown color with a fair amount of carbonation. Rich malty/nut aroma. Flavor is predominatly mutty malt balanced by a touch of bitterness. Good flavor but too creamy, much the wat that Boddingtons is. Finishes with a creamy-nutty-carmely tinge that isnt as pleasant as it could be. Its on the verge of something good but too thin and creamy.

Dark ruby with a creamy off-white head that produces very nice lacing. Big malty aroma, roasted and chocolate malt are quite evident. A wee bit of hop aroma. Very malty flavors. Extremely smooth and flavorful. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Big smooth body.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Rich, medium chestnut brown body is topped by a rather thin, off white head that recedes to a thin layer of foam. A very subtle lacing results as the beer is consumed. The aroma is fairly subdued, with a touch of malt a caramel. The taste is sweet and very malty. Caramel and smoked peat dominate the flavor, with the creamy sweet malt behind them. A bit of bitterness shows up in the finish, noticeable only because I was looking for it. The mouthfeel is like homemade milk caramel that is still warm: very smooth and creamy, it virtually sticks to your teeth and tongue. For the advertised ABV, it is not a bit noticeable.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Mohagony colored with a creamy, thick off-white head. The aroma was not as full as I had expected...malty sweet for sure...some earthy, brown sugar, and citrusy hops tones (odd for this style.) The flavor was more rounded and full with a solid malty core...some caramel, and earthy tones. The aftertaste hinted at those citrusy hops. Medium bodied beer with a smooth mouthfeel.

Very nice, focus on malts, but not syrupy or overdone. Good flavors, well brewed. Brown, hint of orange, nice head. I'm always impressed by a bit of subltety from a brewer known for beating it's customers over the head.
