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.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle, at Copenhagen Beerfestival. A hazy, orange-brown beer wtih a minimal-sized off-white to beige head. Chocolate dominates the aroma, but there’s also nuts, caramel and some fruity hops. Chocolate, dark bread, caramel and some hoppy bitterness in the flavor. Thin, almost watery on the palate. A rather ordinary beer, if it wasn’t for the chocolate that is. (090517)

Bottle 27,5 cl. Pours an almost clear amber golden with an off-white head. Sweetish and fairly intense aroma of milk chocolate. Medium body, fruity with notes of overripe fruit and plenty of milk chocolate. Still manages to end surprisingly dry and bitter. 310509

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Low head on an amber body. The chocolate taste is not too strong and I would say it’s quite drinkable in all seasons.
