Beer 179/365 – Three Floyds Robert The Bruce Scottish Ale

Style: Scottish Ale

ABV: 6.5%

Purchased at: Sent to me in a trade

What makes this beer different: Pretty typical Scottish Ale

Will I be drinking this again: Hopefully, if Ohio can finally get licensed for FFF.

Grade: B+

5/6/2010: So far I have had a decent amount of Three Floyds beer. All have been acquired through trades considering their beer doesn’t make it any farther east than Indiana. Every beer I have tried from them have all had their own little twist on their respective style. This is the first one that was a pretty straight Scottish Ale to me.

Robert the Bruce is a pretty straight forward Scottish Ale in my opinion. The smell is a lot of caramel malt, a little bit of chocolate too maybe? The taste is all about the caramel, and yes a bit of chocolate that I got in the smell. A tiny bit of bitter hops going on. Mouthfeel is a bit on the heavier side, like with other Scottish ales (This effect is intentional as these styles are boiled longer than normal). Alcohol has a little bit of a punch at 6.5%, would have guessed it closer to 8.5%. Overall a good beer, just no wow factor to it.

Picture of the day: I suffer from this for sure. Sleep Cycles.

  1. Almost bought a bottle of this the other week. There’s one bar here that has exclusive importation rights. Can’t wait to have the Three Floyds you sent me (Alpha King I believe…). I have a date – will be home May 31!

    Might have to splurge on a Popskull before I leave Tokyo – big fan of Dogfish Head.

    • Wait you get FFF in Japan but I can’t even get it 300 miles away in Pennsylvania? What gives!! haha

      Awesome man let me know what you think of all the beer I sent. Have a safe trip to the states if I don’t hear from you.
