Polished brown ale with a thin, quickly dissolving white head. Spicy nose; Deep and somewhat complex flavor. I’m not sure what a wattle seed is, but the flavor is complex and pretty yummy. It’s not my favorite style of beer but it’s entirely drinkable. hawthorne00 (4144) - 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 - it’s a pleasant surprise to find it’s neither.

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. madmitch76 (25801) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2009
17th August 2008. Clear brown beer. Malty nose. Dry palate. Vague hints of fruit and nuts. Good but was hoping for more. mickmac (487) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a small white head over a clear nut brown body. A light cookie malt aroma. Alcoholic/solvent-caramel biscuit taste with a background of subtle bitterness. Quite light bodied and softly carbonated. Different.

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 (1500) - 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 (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with a thin white head. Aroma is very malty with caramel and toffee notes. Flavor is sweet and grainy with a woody finish. Davros (3309) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
Pours a coppery red with a small dissipating head. barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
Aroma is similar to that of a dark ale, with toasted grains and a certain creamy nutty note, but it’s 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!
