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.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
An amber brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fruit and roasted bread. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking, but very style sure.The flavor is also very complex with caramel, roasted bread, and a OK bitter end, though not quite enough to compensate for the sweetness. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2007
Bottled (Thanks heemer77!). Dark murky brown/red colour with big off-white head. Lacing. Aroma is caramel, meat, yeast, spices and caramel malts. Very interesting and different, once it warms up, it also gets quite much ginger bread in it. Flavour is ginger bread, spices, fruity hops, cookies and flowery hops on the tongue. Very different from mostly anything I have had before.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2002
Chestnut brown. Big sweet crystal malt aroma. Well balanced bitterness. Is this really 7.2%?? As a lover of both scottish ales and Three Floyds I was expecting more though.

Clear brown beer, no real head. Nice depth of malt, not quite barleywine territory but getting there. Trace of hops. Mild carbonation. Quaffable malt led beer.
