tommann (2980) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours really dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is caramel malt, plums and some alcohol. Taste is malt and dried fruit. Was expecting a bit more to be honest. However, it is really full bodied. Hides its alcohol, although there is some burn on the finish. Low carbonation.

DSG (7625) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle. Deep brown color with a big beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, some dark fruits (prunes, raisins), a bit of chocolate, sherry and alcohol notes. Sweet malty flavor with some fruitiness and a nice roasty, slightly hoppy drier finish with a bit of alcohol in the back. Medium-full body. Lacks a bit of depth and body but still pretty tasty and easy-drinking.

ClubGonzo (4548) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2010
Pours a deep coppery body with a small off-white top. Nose is truly delightful: strong caramelized wooden syrupy tones blending elegantly with subtle notes of booze, dark malts and honey. Taste is caramel, cookies, oak and hints of port wine in the aftertaste, without ever being too sweet. Delicious and complex, Old Tom is a classic old ale from the British Isles.

hayduke (3573) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
From a bottle purchased in York, England. Poured nearly black with a nice tan head. Good lacing. Rich nose of roasted malts with nuts. Medium body and rich smooth mouthfeel. Flavor shows some chocolate and the finish is bitter. Very well crafted, drinking. Hard to believe this is 8.5% as it hides the alcohol well.

Inviting aroma of pitfruit, rich malt and some nuttiness, chestnut, pours a small toffee head. Flavour is full malt, roasted nuts, caramel and a bit of toffee. Medium bodied, very well balanced, luciously bitter. Terrific!
