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

Yup, I’ve only had two of their products, but 3 Floyds definitely challenges Bells and Great Lakes for best midwestern brewery. This one explodes with fruity maltiness but leaves a lingering floral bite. A transcendant Scottish to be sure.

Enjoyable stuff: a sort of sweet, malty flavor that’s balanced out well by the hops. Some smoky, chocolatey hints in there too.

For all intents and purposes I was dumbfounded by this beer. It has a rich amber color and a frothy head. A bit of a roasty taste and aroma, but nothing to compare to a true Scotish ale. In the end, I did enjoy it but must have it again to allevieate some of the confusion and decipher flavors.

It took me a long time to formulate a description and impression of this beer. Quite honestly, I was dumbfounded, as it seems to be a blend of two styles: double-bock and Scotch Ale. It has a dark, caramel color with little head, and strong caramel and purple grape juice aroma. Tastes much a like a bock, but with the familiar burnt/caramel taste characterisic of a scotch ale. Very smooth and complex, I wish I had spent more time enjoying this and less time evaluating it.

fraternie (819) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2001
UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 A fantastic Scottish Ale... very malty with a strong carmel flavor. Loved it. Re-rate, 4/30: Had this one on hand pull for the first time ever and was truly impressed. Malty, malty, malty with notes of both dark malt (caramel, chocolate) as well as light grape/raisin notes. Amazingly soft mouth feel. Mildly hoppy, not terribly smokey. Fantastic for the style!

Great beer! Strong caramel/malt flavor and aroma that are nicely balanced with hops. Well done.

This is a mavel of of the Midwest. Unfortunate that once the Floyds moved from the old brewrie to the new they no longer produce the bottle fermented version that was THE most mavelous thing to ever come from these boys.
