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.

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.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Pours a clear amber color with minimal, rapidly disippating head. Leaves very little lacing on the glass. Decent, somewhat weak malty aroma. Very nice malty flavor that makes up for the weak aroma. Not as thick or robust as some Scottish ales, but very smooth and highly drinkable.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Not as over-the-top, "not normal" as some of the other offerings. A bit thinner than some scottishes that Iíve had. That drinkability is what makes it more appealing to me. Very malty. Not sure if I am capable of describing this correctly, but the hopping creates more of a sensation of ozone than a flavor. Whatever it is, it plays off the maltiness pretty well. Nice deep deep red coloring. Seems to hold up fairly well in the bottle. Has a hidden kick to it.

There was a sour note to this beer that overpowered the maltiness. Maybe mine was off? In any case, good elements in the mix, but the overall result is not that great.

dukefan (214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2003
A pretty darn good Scottish. For Three Floyds, a bit of a "normal" deal. Very good beer, but nothing spectacular like the Alpha King. That being said, I am both a regular purchaser and embiber of this beer.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Deep mohagany color with a light tan head. Aroma of malt, peat and a touch of citric hops. Quite smooth. Malt flavor, with just a subtle peat interuption, dominate, yet there are some hops that do stand up to be be recognized. Iteresting and enjoyable version.

One of my all time favorite styles.This one is well done.Malt,malt and more malt,aroma is slightly sweet same in the flavor,not as heavy feeling as other scotties iíve had but very decent.nice finish that got a little to sweet if they get to warm up,but can be tolerated ok.Nice brew

Brown in color, the smell of malts is imediately present. Iím not sure I agree that there is a balance of hops & malt, I mostly taste sweet malts. Its a very tasty brew.
