In the lead-up to Australia Day we thought we’d splash out to try a new beer on a 40-degree Friday afternoon. Barons Black Wattle Original Ale is a multi-award winning brew, so we thought we’d give it a try.
According to the back of the label, it is "Flavoured by native Australian roasted wattle seed, this ale has a rich amber colour and a base malt flavour of toffee and caramel. The wattle seed rounds out the offering with a unique taste that hints of hazelnut, chocolate and mocha. It’s a full bodied, full flavoured beer that is surprisingly smooth with an amazingly silky finish."
It is indeed a delicious drop, and a 5.8% alc/vol packs a decent punch too. Pretty sweet though.
