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.

Bottle - Malty! Something I thought I'd never say about a 3F beer. Light brown with a small beige head. Not like any of their others I've had, but pretty nice!

Smelled like apples, and definately malty. My first beer from 3 Floyds, definately looking forward to more.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Slight bread aroma. Malty tasting beer with a roasted, slight smokey flavor. I didn't think I would like this beer, but it was a pleasant suprise.

Light ruby brown hue. Lightly smokey nose. Small sticky beige head. Very smooth. Medium bodied, great fruitiness, liight smoke in the background, and a hopped up finish. Very nicely done, I really enjoy this. These guys brew some hefty s***.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Draft - My first taste of this Brewer's beer and I really enjoyed it. Very full-bodied and malty. Finish is long and dry. I can't wait to try the rest of their beers.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2003
Fruity aroma, tea. Malty with a little hops. Brown sugar sweet and a bit of tang. Light off-white foamy lacing head over red-brown clear liquid. Medium thick body with medium-heavy carbonation. Malty and light sweetness. Light hops taste - a nice balance. Smooth sweet nutty finish and after. Dry bitterness too. Alcohol and a bit of grapefruit. Nice scottish ale.

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - APR 22, 2003
Clear amber color with very little head. Sticky, salty, touch of smoke, touch of wood, slight floral aroma. Sweet with a bit of a bitter/smokey finish. A little over carbed.

Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2003
A very subtle Scottish ale, with a good clinging head over a red-amber body. Caramel and raisin, almost suggestive of a low-key barleywine. Musty and fruity, suggesting dried fruits. Good, but not remarkable. (on tap, Clark Street Ale House, Chicago, IL)

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 Original Rating, April 1, 2003: I can smell the malt. I was surprised at how light it is, very brown or amberish. "Big malty body" does not do it justice. I like it much better than the nutty flavor of Bellhaven and other scottish ales Iíve had. Very nice.

Re-rating, January 25, 2010, Burnís Night: Dark reddish-brown color with a small, collapsing head. Strong aroma of caramel, toast and biscuit. The caramel and biscuit scream out in the taste. Light roasted barley. Quite earthy. I really wish I could get my hands on this more often.
