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.

A Scottish Ale with a malty flavor. Dark in color, lite aroma, rich but not overbearing.

Great beer. Tastes like a really malty porter. Sort of like Monday night drafty kilt.

BOD 2/3/16. Dark brown cola like pour that is clear and turns a beautiful garnet under intense light. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. Outstanding nose of toasted malt with subtle notes of char and smoke over a caramel substrate with a dark fruit element, probably plum. Almost medium body with a very smooth texture that has creamy aspects. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish that tickles the tongue. The flavor profile is quite outstanding. Intensity is moderate, complexity is outstanding and balance is perfect. In short, this tastes great but doesnt hit you with in your face flavor intensity. This is a malt forward beer that begins toasty, progresses to a moderate sweetness with strong caramel notes and a subtle molasses aspect then flows to the middle. The middle delivers just enough bitterness to perfectly balance with a pine and roast character that delivers a touch a char and a dose of smoke. These flavors slowly fade into the malty finish that brings a slight dryness and a hint of plum. Alcohol remains completely covered and a nut character emerges during the fade which also brings the strongest molasses aspects.

A. Ive seen great ones from them, not top as always in the aroma sector. A. Appearance is just perfect. Dark tan with a perfect dense and foamy half inch super light brown head. T. Tastes very very good but not great as all they do. Was expecting a greater kick for a scottish. P. Caramel and a sweet bread and coffee finish, very subtle, very nice. O. Great balance if course. Can use a little bit more booze in a scottish guys believe me.

12 oz bottle. The pour is a very dark brown with a thin cap of light tan head that stays a pretty dense cap and leaves a pretty hefty bit of solid lacing. The aroma is really sweet. There is a ton of chocolate and caramel malts. A light dark fruit presence is there as well. It's got a little booziness and it's definitely sweet. The flavors are just as good. It's sweet and carries a good scotch ale flavor. The dark fruits really pull this together a bit. There is a sweet malt, a light caramel, and just a hint of metallic sweetness. The mouth feel is excellent. There is a nice creaminess and a soft carbonation that helps not seem a little thicker. The aftertaste is sweet and a little light, but it's malty and good. This isn't a bad scotch ale at all.
