The first beer released is the Wattle Seed Ale, which starts with a blend of Australian and European malts, creating a rich flavour base of caramel with a hint of chocolate. The smooth malt flavours are lightly hopped and then infused with roasted Wattle Seed, bringing a unique and authentic Australian flavour to this fine red ale. The result is an outstanding ale that boasts a smooth taste profile balancing its robust character, an ultimately rewarding yet distinctive beer. Native Range. Formerly Barons Black Wattle Superior Wattle Seed Ale.

Bottle from State Line. Medium brown pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is roasty malt, some brown sugar, and some nutty notes. Tastes malty, not sweet, with some hops, brown sugar, and nutty notes. Not a repeater for me.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 16, 2010
355 simply guised as Baronís Black Wattle Original Ale. (new entry?) Pour is clear red with a yellowish, creamy head. Pretty fizzy. Good retention and little to no lace. Aroma is roasted nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, almonds. Taste is rich, roasted walnuts, chestnuts, some slight chemicals, vanilla extract. Palate is a bit oily to numbing.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
Tap at HDG. Brown coloured beer with a sweet malty aroma. Light caramelly backing notes. Toasted malt, brown sugar and a touch of maple sweetness. Nice caramelly maltiness. Fairly sweet with a bit of herbal bitterness. Malts seem decocted and have a vaguely dunkel-ish quality to them that is tough to describe. Nutty finish. Decent brew.

blipp (8260) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours brown with a thin head. Sweet malt aroma with toasted grain. The flavor is sweet and almost bready, with caramel, toast, and a hint of earthiness. I expected this to be a trainwreck but it was actually pretty good and very drinkable.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Fizzy, off-white head with a clear amber colored body. Aromas of sweet malts and some soy sauce. Taste of sweet barely that is easy to sip. A bit biscuity. I donít know what a wattle seed is or tastes like, but this beer reminds me of Fat Tire. Fizzy mouth with the viscosity of water.

bottled. copperish with a slim head. decent aroma of toffee with a light grassiness. quite firm, hints of cocoa powder and reasonably bitter finish. couldnít really notice the wattle seed but thatís probably a good thing

PorterPounder (7404) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper that sports a somewhat quickly fading off-white head. Pleasant, earthy aroma with hints of mild licorice, bakerís chocolate. Nutty flavor, some earthiness, caramel, and just a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is on the thin side - but crisp enough. Pleasantly suprised - glad, because I bought a whole six!
