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.

Pours a rusty reddish brown with a small lasting beige head. Aroma is of dark malt, chocolate, some gain notes. Taste of dark caramel malt, chocolate. Light bitter notes. Palate is a medium body, mild carbonation, as a nice sweet chocolate flavor. The finish is a combination of dark caramel and chocolate malt, has more of a chocolate liqueur flavor that lingers with light bitterness. Overall a flavorful and tasty brew.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
330ml bottle bought at Castle Hotel and shared with Finn at the pub. Near-clear, amber coloured body. Spotty rings of lace down the glass. Aroma of earthy malts and nuts, semi-sweet. Flavoured with vanilla, cocoa and chocolate offset by herbal hops. Not overly sweet to the ending. Medium bodied. Enjoyable (Manchester, 21.01.2013).

Dorqui (2201) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 27, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Brown clear color with a medium limpid aspect; discreet bubbly presence with a medium resistant head duration. Predominantly liqueur aroma, notes of roast caramel, cacao, toasted cereals and alcohol. Enough smooth taste with a pleasant solidity body. Little sweet start with note of candy and caramel and after realization of bitter cacao with an equilibrate final. Very pleasing.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep brown-black in colour with low but steady head and smooth body. Nose of christmas chocolate. Taste of bittersweet chocolate, low malt, low hops and dark grains. Very quaffable and sweet. It is very nice for a change but I wouldn’t drink it a lot.

11.2 OZ BOTTLE. Pours dark amber with creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bread crust, chocolate and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Taste is of cacao, milk chocolate, earthy hops and bready malt. Finish is long, semi-dry. Nice, balanced brew with just right amount of chocolate.
