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

this beer rocks and these people know how to deliver flavor. Medium amber with a squat head. Moderate carbonation and and explosive palate high in malt and a bloom that has hints of chocolate and coffee. Not too bitter. drinkable and fine . . .

A medium-bodied, dark brown, malty ale, with an aroma that suggests an abundance of sweetness, but doesn't really deliver it. This has pretty high carbonation that gives it a tingly mouthfeel. It has a nice, long, malty finish. Overall a solid beer, but not exceptional.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Basically a dark version of their Alpha King Pale Ale, or any of their beers for that matter, they all taste the same. There is no hint of chocolate in this beer and robust is an exaggeration. Essentially a pale ale that has been left in the sun to tan is all it is. ( 4,3,5,2,8) Re-rate: When I have tried this along with Pride and Joy or Alpha King while I like the caramel malts in Bruce I have a hankering for the hops in the previous 2. A good Scottish ale but a bit tempermental depending on the form you buy this in. ( 5, 3,5,3,13).

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Fruity aroma of pears and apples, with just a hint of sweetness in the flavor. A mild, dry finish. Medium amber color, with a long-lasting rich frothy head.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Brown colour, very sweet fruity smell. A nice hoppy taste with some malt, that lingers in the palate for a while. A good beer, but not an excellent beer!

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Dim eyes behold the demise of a sweet caramel and molasses debris...Cherries dropping to the earth below, to fall in tow...A well-kept hop horticulture hoards a plethora of citrus fruit and healthy bark into the back bitterness...The slow and quiet tickling of a feather...

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2003
super tasty, with a lot of sweetness. very malty, with not a whole lot of hop. this is not an all night drinker, rather, it’s a good choice for one or two

Pours a nice dark amber. Aroma is immediate and full of caramel notes. Flavor is more caramel with some roasted malt and a nice bitter hop backbone. Finishes a little drier than expected. A decent scottish.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2003 Finally something cool comes out of indiana. A good scottish ale, very flavorful, lots of body. It takes me back to braveheart and then I remember that robert the bruce fucked braveheart over and then my opinion is lowered until I am educated on the real Robert the Bruce and the honor he deserves and my opinion is once again high.
