2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from SuperAlko in Tallinn (Ä 2.45). BB Jul 2015. Pours a rather ugly murky coppery brown with chunks of sediment despite it having stood still in the basement for a few weeks. Head is big-bubbled with non-specific colour. On the nose itísÖ hmmÖ more caramel than chocolate, also dark fruits (dates, prunes). In fact, if I didnít know I would have trouble guessing chocolate being an ingredient. Well, alright, as itís warmed some more I get chocolate. Itís also pretty noticeable in its flavour. But thatís very caramelly too. Yet itís still got a lot more bitterness than sweetness, which I consider a bit strange. Body is medium, carbonation rather crisp, but in the finish thereís a metallic tingle and some unpleasant graininess. I think this is the least enjoyable of the 3 Old Toms Iíve recently had (in addition to this, the original and with ginger). But itís not entirely bad.
