Brew Review: Three Floyds Robert the Bruce

This beer was the shining star of my Chicago trip (excluding the Gumballhead, of course).

I’m always excited to find Three Floyds anywhere.  I’m yet to be disappointed by their beers.  As per usual, their Robert the Bruce is fantastic.

This Scottish ale pours a deep brown color with a nice malty aroma and a hint of spice.  The flavor is perfect for a Scottish ale.  It’s heavy, but not too heavy.  It’s bitter, but only slightly.  It’s malty, but not overpowering.  A nice sweet caramel throughout, and a subtle hoppiness to maintain balance.  It’s just done so well.

Oh, Three Floyds, how I wish you distributed to DC.
