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 lover’s delight.

pours a reddish color with a medium head. aroma is chocolate and flavor is the same. caramel maltiness is secondary. palate is a bit watery. this is ok.

Deep mahogany with loads of ruby red. Large thick head of off white cream on top. Wish it stayed a little longer. Lots of malt in the aroma with some hop presence too. Creamy rich and very smooth with sweet malt and caramel going from the beginning to the end. I don’t detect any peated malt so I don’t know about the style, but this is a very pleasant beer overall and a very easy one to drink.

Sweet chocolate aroma and rich pleasant palate. A fresh ale with many promising attributes. The chocoloate color belies the definite sweet aroma. Smooth to the end, this ale is worth repeating.

Bottled 12 oz. Dark brown. Sweet malty taste but very little peaty taste. Ok but not as good as skullsplitter.

Nothing spectacular. Another solid Three Ffloyds brew but bottom of their line. Full body and tastes more like an average chocolate porter than a scotch ale.

Dark amber color,fresh full slightly hoppy aroma, a full nicely blended malt hop taste, a little heavy on the malt, very flavorful. Anothe 3F gem

Fantastic nose of caramel and toffee. Rich aromas lead to a balanced sweetness. Not overly heavy. Very pleasant to drink. A nice representation of the style. I really enjoyed this beer.

Mahogany brew with moderate beiga head. Great sweet malt aroma. Taste is a little less sweet and a little more hoppy than the originals from Scotland.

Ruby colored beer with a disappearing light brown head. Sweet yeasty and caramelly aroma with some spices. Distinctive Three Floyd aroma, could it be the yeast? Fruity tones and a bit of alcohol also. Flavor is rather sweet malty and fruity, mild with a thin finish. Toffee notes and hints of pepper. Nice and easy without beeing spectacular. Thanks Steve (wohlfs) for trading me this one.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Dark caramel color with a thin off-white head. Sort of like a light spicy porter. Smooth and creamy with a good malt character. Not a session beer but good stuff.(3) 3/12/05 Had on cask and this did not work at all. The cask version had a definite alcohol aroma and taste that was distracting for this style. Also the grassy hops became overpowering for any malts to come through.(2.1)
