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 lovers delight.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Outstanding and unique Scottish Ale! Pours a very dark red/amber with a small off-white head. Very hoppy aroma and taste for a Scottish ale but Three Floyds crafted this so well that Im thinking this is how all Scottish ales should be. Beautiful caramel malt and hop balance. Not bitter and leaves a sweet aftertaste. Highly recommended!

I had this bottled. First, I don't care for scottish ales. The color was dark brown. The taste was of heavy roasted malt, but not overwhelming. It was a very enjoyable beer with little aftertaste.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2004
Bottle pours a brown amber with a decent white head and good lace. The aroma has hints of licorice and chocolate. The flavor is dark chocolate, roasted malt, and slight hops to balance. Strong bodied, it comes off rather nicely. Overall, I'm OK with it.

thegreenrooster (4146) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2004
Pours a nice deep red with a nice white head. No real aroma. Flavor is hard to pick up but it is a roasted malty dry hop. There are better for the same price.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Deep reddish brown with a head rapidly dissolving to a sheet of lace. Nose is malty caramel and roasted. Flavor is toasted malty and generously hopped. With a lightly smoked, peaty aftertaste. Great balance and drinkability.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Appearance: dark brown, off-white head
Flavor: smokey, roasted malts, hops and chocolate. also some black coffee flavors
Palate: very smooth and rich. slight creaminess but also slightly dry from the amount of hops. Dry hoppy finish.
Couldn't get everything from this beer--too cold and tongue was too far gone from the others I had tasted previously.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2004
A stunning, clear deep amber with a medium diminishing beige head. Nice aroma of roast, chocolate, malted milk, pine and grapefruit. Medium slightly creamy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of roast, chocolate, malted milk balls, hazelnut, plum, and wood. Very good.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Aroma mainly malt; deep red/brown with large creme-colored head, diminishing to a smaller head that lasts. Nutty & malty flavors, toffee, little hop presence as per style. Fairly sweet but not cloyingly so. Smooth & delicious -- a good offering from FFF.
