a bit slick with this nice malty with a cherry brandy hint of a brew. different and enjoyable i found this to be interesting. dark and revealing a classic gentlemans taste of beer. surely the scores are too low as of yet and no doubt thet will go higher. the sale is the versatility. great cigar and steakhouse beer. yet, you could sit down with a 20 oz or a pint and just enjoy the quality taste and mellow sophistication that is of genuine character... period

On Tap @ Hop Devil Grill NYC, 8/11/07. Pours dark amber with a half finger tan head. The nose was sweet with a bit of malt. The taste was sweet and malty with a bit of an odd veg taste. Very smooth palate, overall tasty and extremely drinkable.

Tap @ Croxley Ales, Rockville Centre, NY. Pours a deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate with malt characteristics as well. Taste is chocolate up front dissolving into a delightful mix of caramel, toffee, nuts, and malt. I liked this.

12oz Bottle. Heavy earth and brown bread aroma. Particularly interesting waft of caramels, toasted oat bread, and ginger. Nice. Crystal clear red-tinted amber pour, with a voluminous fine soapy head. Right on the tongue it comes as a little watered down. There’s a hazlenut paste and almond cream sensation that rises from both the seed and the malt. Again, a bit thin. Alcohols percolate to the nostrils. Malt lies a little flat. Light spice, wood, and general raw grain dust. Very clean, with an interesting, good flavor. Not overly complex or deep, but tasty. Thanks Sean for the opportunity to try a new flavor!

(Bottle) Courtesy of Oakes. Pours a ruby-brown body with a dissipated, white head. Nose of mild fig. Good malt texture, mild sweetness in finish. Good.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Personal Milestone: My First Wattle Seed Ale Rating (out of 4040)!!!!!
My dictionary informs me that a Wattle is an Australian Acacia. Never had an Acacia seed before, either, that I’m aware of. The body’s a deep copper color and it’s capped by a modest ecru head. The aroma holds some caramel, a bit of dry chocolate, and corncob. Very smooth with a thick wheaty creaminess. The flavor has a tad more chocolate and a very light mint taste that lasts long into the finish. Pretty decent. I think I’ll plant a Wattle in my yard.

Bottle: A nice mahogany ruby color, thin head and nice lacing. Nose of juicy caramel and a spicy nutty character that’s bit like special b or weird hops. The flavor has a rich full body, ample melanoidins and a nutty puffed amaranth with molasses note in the middle. Fun beer, nutty; would make a wicked amber.
