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 loverís delight.

Tried on draft at the brewery. A little hoppy as are most of their brews but that isnít a bad thing. Great overall flavor. Iím not normally a scottish ale fan but Three Floyds hasnít disappointed me with any brew.

From growler #2 of my trip to the brewery. Dark orange-amber hued, minimal head that diminishes almost fully. Earthy, slightly peaty aroma, not much hop nose. Ample mouthfeel, and a nice melding of smokish-tasting malt and hop bitterness. True to form for Three Floyds, this beer has more hops than typical for the style, but remains a well-crafted and drinkable brew.

I got this in a big Growler filled off the taps at the brewery. A unique interpretation of the style but overall a very enjoyable beer--easy to drink. It is a dark copper color and has a malty aroma. A lot of hop but is still well balanced with a chocolately malt flavor. Very smooth to drink, easy to settle up with. Once again a winner from Three Floyds.

With the scottish ale type I was expecting less hops. Hop flavor overwhelms what would be a nice Scottish ale however. It did get better the closer to the bottom I got however. Color was a bit average for a brown too.

Just ok. Not much else to say about it.

Aroma was citrusy but too much alcohol for me. Poured a little cloudy and had a very thin head. The flavor was much too sweet and malty.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 I'm used to drinking McEwans Scotch Ale and was interested to see how this compares. It didn't. Nowhere near the maltiness and sweetness I was expecting. Beer hides 7.2% alcohol content extremely well. A very good beer, but not my favorite Scottish style ale.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 not my cup of tea-to malty for my liking, but appropriate for the style. I will stick to the alpha king and hopefully. Even the new munster brewed bottles dont really do it for me.

Damn good beer.
