A Strong Scottish ale, an attempt to clone Robert the Bruce. The key to this recipe, to get a malty sweetness, is to mash at the high end of the temp range, and a long 90 min boil. I didn't use the yeast to style, but didn't matter too much in this beer, with all the other complex malt flavors being the main part of what makes this beer great.
