4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Old Tom has a thin, cream-colored head, some scattered lacing left on the glass, and an opaque, red-brown appearance, with noticeable tight bubble streams and tan chunks suspended throughout. The aroma is of dates, sweet fruit cake, strong, bready malt, and a touch of chocolate. Taste is the same, and the mouthfeel is high medium. Old Tom finishes on the wet side. Smooth, though. RJT

Robinsons Old Tom is a style typical goold old ale, a bit too sweet for my taste, but that was expected from the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 ounce (330 ml) bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with a half inch light tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like dried dark fruit, molasses, port wine, and a bit of brown sugar and bananas. It tastes like dried dark fruit, banana, toffee, molasses, port wine, grape skins, and some earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. Regardless if you call this an Old Ale or an English Strong Ale, it’s a good brew. I’d buy this one again.
