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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a deep mahogany brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head that reduced in the first few minutes down to a thin cap and medium collar, which in turn created some excellent sheets of sticky spotty lace. The aroma was nice and robust with a roasted biscuit malt and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, a mild coffee, light chocolate, dried fruit (figs and dates) and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was a very smooth malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild coffee presence at first, with the finish being sweetly acidic and having a good dose of dried fruit and a decent alcohol ending. The flavor lasted a good long time after the swallow, leaving behind a mild alcohol fruity taste. Mouthfeel was medium in body and had a creamy dry texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall a nice bold fruity sweet Scottish Ale with more of an alcohol presence than the ABV suggests...

luttonm (5269) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Rainy night tasting. Huge thanks to Chris. Thin off-white foam, deep ochre, amber and mahogany. Deep rosy malt flavor, rather interesting. Nose is copper-metallic, deep freshly milled barley nose. Reminds of kvas in a sense, dark rye bread. Malty sweet resin edge. Pretty tasty for the style. Nice.

willisread (2941) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Tap at CYO. Pours a deep brown with a finger of foam that lingers. Lots of malt on the nose with caramel toffee and chocolate standing out. Full-bodied with a chewiness to it. More caramel chews on the palate. A good fall/winter beer for sure.
