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.

12fl oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Deep amber with two fingers of tan head. Almost looks like root beer. The aroma eludes me. Taste is very woody. Lots of sweet malt and just enough hops to keep it from being cloyingly sweet. It's pretty yummy. Thick palate, pleasantly sticky. The 7% alcohol is well hidden. Scarily drinkable. Thanks for this one Jeremy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at bjs Easton. Dark brown pour with lingering off white head. Smoky malt nose and super smooth. May be best Scottish ale I've had. Bready and thick. A few of these and I'd happily be wearing a skirt, Scottish style.

Bottle pour at home, Sent to me from a friend, thanks Jon. Very dark amber pour, kind of roasted aroma, very smooth beer, spice flavors, malt mouth feel, hops but not biter at all. Definitely one of the better Scottish style ales iv had.

12oz bottle. Aroma is of sweet malt. Dark brown color, with light brown head, good lacing. Lots of sweet malt in the flavor. Medium body. Good Scottish Ale, but not the best I’ve had.

Lemke10 (948) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2015
On-tap, this pours a medium brown color with a slight brown head. The aroma is malty, with a hint of booze. The flavor is rich with malts. Hints of oak and fairly dry. Finishes crisp and clean.

Tap at DLD 15. Dark pour. Very full body. Roasty nose. Tastes pretty hoppy -- dry hopping overpowers the slight scotch malt character underneath.

Robust hops and caramel. Surprisingly good balance despite hop forward Scottish ale. Nice finish.

On tap @ the brewpub.Medium amber, hoppy fruity aroma with underlying caramel malts. A hopped up presentation of the style, as to be expected from these guys. Nice.
