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.

bierkoning (10386) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown color. Milk chocolate, grapes and apple syrup in the aroma. Sweet, almost sugary flavor with grapes and chocolate powder. Thinnish. Tastes artificial somehow.

Grima (2101) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Into a glass pours a dark ruby red beer . The smell is strong caramelly, but also a lot of chocolate comes through. Starts with lots of coffee and toffee aromas. Toffee and caramel in the middle part. The finish shows delicately hoppy, with a slight caramel flavor and a subtle bitterness, also again lots of chocolate aromas

ska (203) - ITALY - JUN 25, 2011
33cl bottle, dark amber/brownish color, lasting creamy beige head, roasted malt aroma with chocolate (not so "real") and vanilla notes, moderately sweet flavor, medium body, finish with some hops notes, vanilla hints aftertaste, I was expecting a more genuine chocolate taste

goozen (2993) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle 0,5ltr: Another brew with my favorite one-eyed brewery cat on it. The dark brown coloured chocolate version. I like this one, not so extreme of taste like other chocolate beers. Its got the sweet bitternesh due the fine chocolate they used.

LoFi (1594) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle. Copper with a darker tan head leaving lacing. Aroma: chocolate, nuts, grass, bitter (as in the beer style). Taste: lots of milk chocolate, cacao, fruit, quite sweet, low bitterness. Medium-bodied and smooth. Feels more like a blend of ale and chocolate than a successful chocolate ale. But not bad.

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Dark amber, medium to dark red colored beer with a big, thick vast white head. Don’t smell much chocolate. At first only light hints of chocolate in the taste, but when I left it for awhile a little more chocolate appears. Nice carbo and medium body. Nothing wrong with this beer, pretty nice.
