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.

Cheers to radiomgb for sharing this one. Ruby brown w/ creamy tan head. alcohol noticeable on nose along with malts and caramel. Much thinner than expected and lighter too. Easy drinking without a trace of bitterness - like liquid butterscotch - including the fact that it is perhaps too smooth and sweet. Enjoyable but not what I was expecting in a Scottish ale - although perhaps it's the scottish versus scotch question.....

Caramel in colour. Aroma was malty(cookiedough), caramel, butterscotch with some alcohol. Flavour was light and watery upfront, turning to slightly sweet, malty and some sugar. Finish is smooth, light with no bitterness. Not bad. Thanks jeffc666.

Pours a dark brown with a thick biege head that doesn't last. Aroma is mildly sweet with roasted coffee and fresh baked bread. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate, caramel, and coffee on the tongue, with a dash of hops. This was a nice scottish ale. It was almost like a porter. This was a very nice beer.

An amber brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fruit and roasted bread. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking, but very style sure.The flavor is also very complex with caramel, roasted bread, and a OK bitter end, though not quite enough to compensate for the sweetness. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

Dark brown color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is malty, nutty and sweet, with a touch of peat. A medium bodied scotch ale. Malts are nutty and sweet with a touch of peatiness. Itís very hoppy for a scotch ale, yet itís not at all bitter. Extremely smooth with a nice sweet finish. Hides the 7.2% alcohol very well. An eminently drinkable ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Thanks TAR

An alltime favorite, but for deceptive reasons, it is just too damn smooth, a medium bodied malty beer with a small amount of hops. Yet the flavour is great for kicking back and enjoying life.

Beautiful mahogany color with a medium off-white head. Nice malty aroma. Very sweet malty caramel flavor with a light hoppy bite in the finish. Very enjoyable!

I enjoyed the heavy malt, accented with chocolate and molasses, and did not notice an offensive aftertaste. I enjoyed this ale. I think that I will have another.

Deep deep red color, basically black. Short-lived tan head. Sweet cream aroma with a hint of spiced rum. How to describe all this malt? Black licorice and milky caramel stand out the most to me. Finishes with a bitter anise flavor. Has an unsubstantially creamy mouthfeel. I like everything about this beer except for the aftertaste - the bitterness doesn't encourage me to take another sip.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Ah, Bob the Bruce. What a great beer. Light roast, deeply malty, but not overly sweet or cloying at all. Clear hop presence. I love this brew.
