Bottle. The strength of the Old Tom holds up pretty well against the cocoa, with cocoa and a touch of alcohol on the nose, warming malt, vanilla and alcohol on the tongue first, then the cocoa comes through again, before a dry bitter and cocoa finish with a hint of vanilla again. Did I mention the cocoa yet?

Amber color, low carbonation.Fruity aroma, some hints of chocolate. Chocolate is realy noticable in the first sip, then fades bit, to give way to the bitterness. Very nice beer!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
At a tiny tasting in my home, bottle, pours amber with a very light brown head that dissipates quickly, sweet chocolate and coffee aroma, mild chocolate taste, medium body, delicately carbonated, and overall a disappointing beer and less good than the original Old Tom.

def an interesting one. unlike most of the chocolate flavored ales ive had which i think have all been stouts, youngs, southern tier, etc., this is more of an old ale with creamy chocolate aroma and flavor. different in that its an addition, not a taste from the malts, so its a little artificial, but not bad. a little too sickly sweet, but still enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours brown with a small off-white head and an aroma of chocolate, malts and cream. The taste at first medium sweet and high on chocolate and then turns more bitter. There’s notes of overripe fruits, toffee, dark malts whipped cream. Really drinkable beer.

I had this beer over xmas from a gift box that i was bought. I love stout and this Ginger Tom with chocolate was fantastic. A lovely aroma and a very good taste.
