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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
