COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Originally labelled as Chocolate Tom. Label was changed to read Old Tom With Chocolate circa 2011.
Old Tom with chocolate is an indulgent rich combination of Robinsons’ award winning Old Tom and the finest cocoa. It is a superior full bodied strong ale filled with the flavour of ripe malt and velvety smooth chocolate teased together with an inspired touch of Madagascan bourbon vanilla.
Chocolate Tom is a deliciously indulgent addition to the Old Tom range, with a recipe developed by Robinsons and the renowned chocolatier Simon Dunn.
With a distinctive ’natural’ milky sweet chocolate palate balanced by underlying hop and roasted malt characters, Chocolate Tom is a superior, rich and warming speciality beer with a dark mahogany colour.

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber brown colour with a creamy smooth off-white head, good retention. Aroma: light roasted malt, chocolate, caramel. Taste: chocolate, malt, liquorice, vanilla, molasses. Quite sweet overall with a slight bitterness in the finish, slight taste of alcohol too. Soft carbonation, smooth oily mouthfeel. Pretty nice brew.

MetalNHopHead (1431) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Chocolate Tom is an easygoing dessert beer for a weeknight. At 6%, this Old Tom variant is lighter than many Old Ales currently available. Brown pour with a fluffy head. Milky, creamy chocolate and molasses aromas. Flavor is consistent with the smell: chocolate, vanilla, and molasses. A medium-bodied beer that’s big on sweet, light on heat.

zacgillbanks (4454) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bottles from York Beer & Wine and B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Amber-brown in colour with milk chocolate and red fruity flavours followed by caramel, vanilla and more sweet chocolate on the finish. Very good.

HuskerTan (1700) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle. A- Molasses, milk chocolate, subtle bourbon. A- Brown color, murky liquid, tan head. T- Molasses, chocolate, subtle sweetness, mild alcohol. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- At first I thought I bought the regular Old Tom and was a bit disappointed when I found out it was the Chocolate version. As soon as I got a smell, the disappointment went away. This smelled like a Russell Stovers chocolate covered molasses bite and the taste is about the same. The bottle seemed bigger than it was too. Overall, I was surprisingly pleased with this one.

Fules (794) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 20, 2016
Közepes, tartós hab, vörösbe hajló barna (mahagóni) szín. Enyhe illatok, csoki és kávé, maláta alapon. Malátás alap, ami után rögtön a komló keserűje és pici csoki, meg jelzés értékű konyakosság érződik, enyhe savanykássággal. Kicsit sok a szénsav. Utóíze egy butított ESB-re hasonlít, némi savanyúval. Nem igazán jött be, nem tudom miért.

peponi (1470) - Hannover, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2016
Aroma: cocoa, artificial chocolate. Appearance: clear deep brown color and beige head. Taste: alcohol, cocoa, roasted notes, quite dry, empty taste. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, cocoa. Overall: Really mediocre stuff.

nephirem (246) - CROATIA - JUN 1, 2016
Clear, dark ruby pour with small and short lasting, slightly off-white head. Smell is malty with a hint of chocolate. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Mostly bitter taste with subtle sweet notes to it. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, coffe grains, toffee and nuts. Nicely balanced, maybe a bit too watery, needs more punch to it. Overall, nice and enjoyable.

halfonit (1324) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours a hazy brown/amber color. Aroma is very sweet. Apple peels, malts, and a little chocolate are there. Sweeter, oil slick and slight carbonation palate. Flavor is of malts, vanilla, oak, and cocoa. Leaves a sweeter, slightly bitter malt finish.

seuinoz (231) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2016
Aroma has alot of Chocolate smells. Appearance dark brown to black in color with sediment on the bottom of the glass. Taste is that of Chocolate with hints of black coffee. Palate soft carbonation, medium body, and a bitter finish. Not the best Chocolate beer I have had.
