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.

Bottle from Nina’s. Pours a nice ruby brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of cocoa and toffee. Like drinking alcoholic Nesquick. Alcohol is fairly prominent and burns a little on the finish. Moderate carbonation. It is what it is, Old Tom with cocoa in it. Lingering toffee apples and alcohol. Liqueur chocolate finish. I’m glad I tried this.

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 18, 2011
British Store, Budapest. Bíborosan csillogó sötétbarna szín, tetején sárgás, nem túl kitartó laza habbal. Illata elképesztően csokis, jobban mondva inkább csokilikőrös, annak minden meghatározó tulajdonságával. Ahogy azt sejteni lehetett,ízében is ez a fő irányvonal, de kevés maláta és kis fűszeresség is megbújik mögötte. Inkább csak közepesen testes, kissé likőrösen alkoholos és édeskés, igazán különleges ale, amely ugyan tényleg fantasztikusan csokis, de éppen emiatt kissé egysíkú is.

Bottle from King&Godfree. Great stout. Aromas of chocolate, hints of cereal. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 2, 2011
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Sötétbarna színe van, habja krémes, sárgás színű és vékony. Illata mint egy forró csokoládénak, amibe finom konyakot, vaníliát és más fűszereket tettek. Rendkívül csokisan és konyakosan kezdődik az íze is, aztán jönnek az öreg alere jellemző jegyek is, sok maláta, portóira emlékeztető zamatok, fás ízek, aszalt gyümölcsök és szép adag komló. Közepesen testes és alig buborékos. Utóíze keserédes, csoki likőrös és a legvége száraz. Nagyon érdekes sör, amit az illata alapján talán sűrűbbnek gondolnánk, min amilyen, de azért igen figyelemreméltó. Igazi nőszédítő ital.

Noticeable chocolate in both aroma and taste, covers the alcohol well, drinkable and the missus loves it but I am not so sure.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle 330 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Mahogany and luminous beer, with beige foam sticking to the glass. Aromas of cocoa, vanilla, nuts. The taste is totanny dominated by chocolate (Milky) and vanilla. There is a slippery touch of cocoa butter. Mild malt with a hint of metallic bitterness. No bad but one-dimensional.

Vaiz (4282) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear dark brown to amber pour, solid off-white head. Aroma is sweet with red fruits, caramel, cacao and spices. Flavor is full of cacao, quite sweet and a bit off-balance. Slightly bitter in the finish. Watery texture.

Cream coloured, small head over amber-copper coloured beer. Rather malty nose, parsley, bit perfumey; very faint cocao warming up, smelling like Ovomaltine. Bitter chocolate, almonds and other nuts. Praliné-vanilla filled chocolate bar, with an outspoken bitter finish. Very nice, flavourfull palate, rectifying the beers initial low profile. IMO, it ought to be more of a flavourbomb. A tad more alcohol (and fusels...) might have helped no end. Found in a Münchner supermarket, of all places...
