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.

330ml bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear amber-tinged gold with a huge fluffy-frothy tan and lasting head. Whoah - smells like chocolate all right, chocolate and cut grass, a good Belgian truffle (sweet) chocolate too, smooth and rich. REALLY tastes like chocolate, same smooth rich sort as the aroma, but enough dry herbal bitterness to make its presence known, and 6%? - if you say so, I didn’t detect that; simple. Silky, slick, sticky on the palate, a fairly light and airy body to it, not much carbonation (thank goodness), with a slightly dry, slightly acidic aftertaste - overall quite the treat, will have to chase down a bottle of this for my wife next visit to Blighty.

Appearance: dark brown with a decent brown head. Aroma: nice spicy chocolate or truffle aroma, a little spice too. Nice! Flavour: Chocolate at first, hazelnut, quite truffle like, wow. A lot of bitterness in the finish. I like it.

Nisse666 (4829) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle at the Flying Barell in Göteborg, 2010-07-17 - luckely I didn’t check the price before ordering it! And was very sad that 3 små rom opened 3 hours later - then I could have been first to rate Dugges Fålen! Anyhow: AR: great milk chocolatet, very nice and soft tones AP: reddish brown, wee beige head F: very thin cholcolate flaver a bit atery tendese - I didn’t promise what the the aroma were teasing me to....

Bottle, 6.0% at KØ10. Mild milk chocolate aroma. Clear dark chestnut colour. Small white head. The flavour has some chocolate. At first it tastes oxidised, but the finish is cleaner.

johndoughty (4217) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle. Bronze clear andinviting.Chocolate dominates as you would expect but it is not overpowering. No carbonation and left no lacing.I usually think of chocolate beers as being a novelty but this is definitely not. Worth trying.
