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.

BlackHaddock (5849) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
June 2011: 330ml Brown bottle , best before Sep 2012, poured into a ’Hoegaarden Grand Cu’ stemmed tulip. Good reddy brown colour, head soon left leaving a tan coloured collar and a few pieces of lacing as the beer level fell. Pleasant chocolate aroma is given off which carries on into the taste, true chocolate flavours throughout make this an interesting blend. Different and well made, good carbonisation and throughly enjoyable. Really for a winters night, but equally as good as a summer nightcap.

DocLock (9504) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2012
Neat bottle. Pours clear deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is just like the regular Old Tom, but with more cacao. Tastes malty, with a big cacao mid-palate hit. Finishes ovaltiney, with caramel malt and mild hops.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 29, 2012
0,33l bottle from Beer Bier. Clear, dark reddish amber color with medium off-white head. Interesting, intensive, dry odor with dark chocolate, milk caramel, raisins, some coffee, liqueur and a little whisky. If you wait a couple minutes, the odor and the aroma will be much intensive and delicious. A little bitter aroma with caramel, chocolate, raisins, a little coffee and liqueur. It has an interesting cookie feeling, but the little bitterness make it balanced. Medium bitter-sweet taste. MEdium body with creamy texture and sofr carbonation. Unique, delicious finish with dark chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Very delicious beer with a big amount of flavours and aromas.

Davros (2663) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours dark copper with a large, fading head. Skunky aroma at first, with only traces of chocolate noticeable. Some faint nutty and roasty malt is present Flavours have similar problems, although a bit more chocolate presence helps, along with some nutty malt. However there’s an overriding grainy note throughout and very little supporting malt. Also some industrial booze notes show up in the finish. Body feels watery.

A very distinctive and sweet chokolate flavor, and a nice bitterness. Dark brown in color with a reddish note. Small white head.

reggiedunlop (3633) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Pours a chestnut/ruby color with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is light and nutty with mild chocolate...a bit like tootsie rolls. Flavor is very much like tootsie rolls with a bit of earthy hops and mild nutty/lightly roasted malt. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish lingers with roast and chocolate tootsie roll.

Acid303 (659) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 14, 2012
Dark ambeer colour with medium head, looks ok. Nice body and carbonation. Aroma is really milk chocolate with some vanilla notes. Taste is mostly malty, sweet, and at the end it’s possible to notice the chocolate presence, but not the same as in Aroma. Good beer.
