2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Color like burned sugar moving towards deep red. Fruity aroma, sweet, and leaning towards sherry. Very malty taste. Rather watery and uninteresting. Aftertaste is slightly spicy with a weak yet pleasant bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite dark amber in colour, aroma has loads of dark fruits, prunes and dates with raisins too. Very rich and slightly warming mouthfeel, but the alcohol is really in check, obviously very well brewed. A very malt driven beer, with a lot of complex flavours happening.

För att vara så alkoholstark, så mörk och så fint buteljerad är Old Tom överraskande fjunig. Den smakar ungefär så som man har anledning att förvänta sig, bara att volymen och styrkan är nedskruvad till ett skval i bakgrunden.

This is one of the finest ales I have had the pleasure of tasting, and I found it on a shelf in Asda!! The rich smooth feel of this drink is a fantastic sensation, the after taste resembles marmite but only lingers for a second, considerably alcholic, perfectly balanced, this is real gem!!

Bottle. Pours black/dark copper with a nice head that disappears. Aroma strong caramel with a hint of chocolate malts. Taste slightly sweet, alcohol tastes though, but not in a bad way. Not Bad.
