Brewed for Barons Brewing by AIB

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.

hawthorne00 (3810) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle. A nutty red-brown, small beige head. Cereal malts, nuts and seed nose. Robust caramel and dull chocolate taste with interesting earthy nutty notes, presumably from the wattle. I was expecting either not to taste the exotic ingredient or for it to be some hideous novelty piece of Australiana - its a pleasant surprise to find its neither.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle - Reddish, clear, Thin beige head. Roasted malt aroma and flavour with caramel, dark fruit, smoke and a bit woody/nuttiness (perhaps from the Acacia) . Maybe a hint of alcohol coming through. Smooth, full bodied, with medium carbonation.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2009

zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange/copper, with an off white head. Aroma is a little odd...malt, nuts, and I guess, wattle. Flavor is malt, spices, and nuts. Medium body. Decent.

floydian1 (1435) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 6, 2009
330ml bottle, 5.8% ABV (labelled "Black Wattle Original Ale"). Pours dark orangey-brown with a medium tan head that provides a poor lace. Malt-driven aromas of nutty roasted caramel and cafe mocha. Quite sweet on the tongue with burnt brown sugar and nuts being the predominant flavours. A hint of cherries in there somewhere. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with a medium to full body but not rich and filling. Nice drop.

deyholla (11016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2009

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
Pours a coppery red with a small dissipating head. Aroma is similar to that of a dark ale, with toasted grains and a certain creamy nutty note, but its too faint. Nice though. Similar dark malt flavours, with lingering nutty notes, a slight peppery hint and a mild earthy bitter finish. Good creamy carbonation, but slightly too high. Interesting, but needs to be bolder!

330 ml bottle from a trade with jimmay. pours mahogany with a tan head. aroma of rich toffee and caramel malts. flavours are similarily malty with a touch of weirdness (waddle seed?) the body is thin and a little watery. it hide the 5.8% really well though. thx for the bottle drew!

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle. Poured a darker amber with a creamy tan head that settled out quickly. Aromas of milk chocolate, roast, and light alcohol. The flavor found milk chocolate and caramel. Medium to full body and smooth.
