Three Floyds "Robert The Bruce"
Three Floyds Brewing Company - Munster, Indiana USA
Scottish Ale (ABV 7%) (IBU 30)

[Best served in a Thistle]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

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...
