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.

Pours with a thin light brown head. The beer itself is a deep amber-red color, and is pretty clear. Aromas of dark fruit, malt, and a hint of alcohol waft from my glass. The taste is sweet, malty and fruity as well. Some of the fruit seems to be hop derived, though the hops are fairly subtle here. There is a hint of roast malt in the finish, which adds a nice stylistic touch. This is quite a malty brew, with notes of caramelized malt, cherries, and raisins. This is most definitely a good straight forward example of a Scottish ale.

MrHangover (3488) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown beer with a small, brownish head on top. Aroma has massive dried fruits, grapes, apples, some chocolate, some caramel. Very full and rich. Flavor is again quite rich, sweet, fruity. Loads of sweet dried fruits again present in the different levels. Big hint of caramel in the aftertaste. Low level of carbonation, long, sticky sweet aftertaste. Good stuff for real!

Fritz123 (1407) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Poured into a small snifter at Lizardville. Deep brown color mostly opaque. Small to no head. Aroma is malty with caramel, graham cracker, hint of vanilla and leather. The taste was quite similar yet more muted than the aroma suggests. It was the right mouth balance. Finish is malty and caramel. Pretty good.

Some malts in aroma kind of wine like, similar to new castle but not that bad.malts came through to save it from a 2+ rating. Other than that not much else.
