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.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes nutty, like burnt toast, roasted malt, tobacco, and bitter coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like nuts, tobacco, roasted malt, and toast.

In five characters: malty. Great creamy head, good head retention; medium body, excellent smooth mouthfeel; sweet with a slight hop accent. In yeoman?s terms: delicious and leaves you wanting another sip.

cards04 (1728) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
I thought this was a solid Scottish ale. Not much nose.. Hints of smoke and peat. Flavors are all malts with a bit of a watery finish. Nice chewy mouthfeel with dark fruit and peat.

marv3mania (184) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is a very dark copper color, almost brown, with a big, fluffy tan head. Aroma is lots of sweet malts and a hint of chocolate. Taste pretty well follows the nose. It’s a tad more watery than I expected, but still good. I like it.

Dark brown with a two finger tan head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt, brown sugar and hops. Taste is roasted malts, nuts, caramel and a hint of hops. A good one but not my style of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olsvammel (3032) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen. Very malty and sweet with caramel, candy, caramelized sugar and some dried fruit. It reminds me a bit about GD Hibernation. Yet another great beer from FFF.
