      Well, you need to cbet here, because you are the aggressor, he is the one that will need to respect the Ace.

      Does he call the flop because he always floats, or because he is passive, and will call his any Ace to the river?

      When he calls your second barrell, it nearly has to be an Ace, so cb the river is correct.

      If he is a chronic floater, who will call with many hands, and take your check behind the turn as weakness, you may catch a river bluff instead.

      You can bet river for value again, he'll probably call a thin bet with a T or J, as he often doesn't believe you have an A.

      Bet some $4 on the river =)

      Check behind on the turn is also interesting. He doesn't believe you have the A and with your check, he's gonna think you missed the board and might try to bluff you out and then you catch him.

      River valuebet is thin and you should have reads that player can call you down with Tx.
      Against unknown I´d check back.
