UPDATED: AUG 12, 2003 You all are probably going to think I'm nuts. But I really liked Robert the Bruce better than I did the Alpha King!!! This is my first perfect score. Smooth as glass and lots of flavor. No bitter presense anywhere to be found. No head out of bottle but it was perfect for my palate. I had this after sampling the Alpha King so I will try each individually and see if my initial impression varies from the follow-ups. Pecan (49) - California, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Amazing. Pours deep ruby color with a little off white head. Smells of malts, caramel, and chocolate with a hint of dark fruit and nut. Flavor is big and malty with subtle hints of chocolate, nut, and roast. MTBRNP (2) - Anderson, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013 does not count
This has been my favorite beer since I first had it in July last year. The flavor and finish are exquisite. The presentation grand, and the bottle simply awesome! Thank you- 3floyds seuinoz (260) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2002
the aroma is that of burnt chocolate and freshly grounded coffee.
the appearance is a amber color with a medium head and alot of lacing.
the flavor is that of coffee mixed with chocolate and a hint of carmel.
sits very well on the palate with a smooth finish.
i will buy this again CrimsonGhost1971 (188) - USA - NOV 25, 2002
This is the best damn Scottish Ale I believe I have ever laid my lips on. A tad sweet, smooth, excellent aftertaste. ;)

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2011 This is a very good brew. Nice and malty--hints of coffee and toffee-like flavors but SUPER smooth, with a little caramel roasted malt sweetness. If IPA’s are your thing this won’t float yer boat! Wonderful dark amber color. One of the best "Scottish" i.e. malty, beers I’ve had. Do yourself a favor and get some of this brew. Kind of similar to a local brewery’s Thunderbolt Red, only more malty, and their Heller Bock. A very underrated brew. should be 100. Similar in taste and style to the Germans,’s malty Heller Bock. This beer has an excellent aftertaste. One of my favorite brews from Three Floyds. If so desired could be a session brew, but can also be slowly sipped while watching a good movie. This is too good to guzzle down fast like when your really thirsty after mowing the grass ( stick to wheat beers in the summer for thirst quenching powers!)

Robust hops and caramel. Surprisingly good balance despite hop forward Scottish ale. Nice finish. Bckdoorbrewbra (4) - - JUL 9, 2015 does not count
I love this beer. Aroma is malty and peaty. Clear but dark as a scottish should be, tastes like it smells good carmel notes, smooth with some alcohol burn at the end. Overall great beer and one of my favorites from 3floyds
