COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for Barons Brewing by AIB
http://www.baronsbrewing.com

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.

I bit thin for me, but something about the flavor makes me want to try one with a crisp green salad. I’ve never had that thought before while drinking berr.

Contrary to itís black suggesting name, it pours a deep reddish copper with a quick coarse beige head. The aroma suggests caramel, toffee, chocolate, raisens and is very similar to the Bocks of Southern Germany. Upon tasting, it becomes apparent that we have wandered into the dark department of a candy factory. Massive caramel and chocolate notes dominate, flanked by a smooth toffee character. All balancing out nicely, as it finishes with a fine dry bitterness.

An interesting attempt but not one I would be rushing back for. Aroma is different but probably because you are looking for it. Not that keen on the after-taste as it tends to linger.

Pours well, thin head, really pleasant aroma! Taste is smooth and a rather complex lingering palate. One of the better red ales I know of.

Malt aroma nearly overpowers the more subtle floral notes. It is Amber in colour and faily well conditioned. The malt flavours are stunning. Its like being in the malting house on a summers day.

330 ml bottle. Delicious malty banana and pudding aroma with hints of wattle. Clear copper colour. Head dissipated quickly. Light kind of malty flavour with caramel notes and some wattle at the end. An interesting beer.

What in Godís name was that?!? Kinda reminded me of those Italian pinyon nut cookies at Christmas. This beer was so rich, I even had a hard time finishing it. Pour was a deep amber with a medium head. Aroma was, well, wattle seed which is somewhere between hay and honey. Very distinctive. Flavor was, again, wattle seed...sort of a combination between tea, carmel, and butter. Again, think pinyon cookies. The beer was good. Would I drink it again, yes. But very, very strange stuff...

iím not a big fan of wattle seed and definately not in my beer. Itís just not a good match in my opinion. But if you like wattle seed and beer you might fancy this drop.

Nice choclatey smell. This is quite a smooth beer, full flavoured, with hints of chocolate, coffee and nuts. I am curious as to which elements are a result of the wattle seed. Itís pretty heavy, it wouldnít make a very good session beer. This is something I would more likely drink with a nice peice of meat.
