Clear molasses colour. Aroma shows toffee, earthy, slight soy sauce (not enough to bother me, thankfully), and chocolate marzipan. Body is quite sweet, but with a pronounced toffee development, light caramel, and finishes slightly tart. That finish gives it that Jacksonesque "moreish" quality to what is otherwise a nursing beer. While straightforward, this also possesses significant depth of character. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2005
Mild and fresh use of Roast and nuts. Alcohol under 5%, a brown something between an American or British. Roast in aroma. Lace in dark brown appearance. Coffee mid-sip. Not overally hopped, but balance, and a moderate complexity. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Re-Rate New sample seems less roasty, and more well balanced. Lots of pleasant malt. Basically the same flavours as last time but I enjoyed it a lot more. 7/3/6/3/15
Original Rating Slightly reddish-brown body with a mocha beige head. Flavour is nicely malty but the notes of roasty mocha with some coffee like bitterness were distracting for me personally because they are not flavours I am fond of. (A coffee drinker I am definitely not.) Pleasant mouthfeel. 7/3/6/3/13 mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
[1557-20080801] Tap. Roasted mocha bread aroma. Clear, dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Flavour has a little sour roast and some coffee hints. Medium-full body. Not very monkey-ish but nice and mild.

Clear, light brown, dense small head. Light roasted aroma mix with sweeter malts. Clean, mature ale. Lasing flavors, decent finish. Technically best of Pepperwood.

Clear dark warm brown with no lace. Malty aroma yields subtle berries. Soft carbonation. Real roasty chocolate malts in a clean and solid body. Sessionable. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2003
Nice ruby-brown colour with a tan head. Aroma of nuts and coffee with a hint of chocolate. Robust body, and a toasty flavour of chocolate and coffee. Very porterish, and very good. DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2003
Malty/hop aroma, auburn with a slim toffee head. Roasted malt, chocolate, toast and coffee flavours. Well balanced, smooth. A really good Brown Ale! Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
At the brewpub. Dark brown, still head. Nice roasty aroma. Good malty, roasty taste. Easily the most flavourful beer I had there, a great brown ale and one I would session frequently if local. Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2011
Probably the lightest tasting brown ale I have ever had. It was not very thick and it was a clear brown colour, minimal darkness to it. small notes of dark malts, light chocolate flavour. Overall not too interesting
