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.

worldbeertaste (1789) - West Midlands, - OCT 18, 2012
Medium dark amber brown with a fizzy light lace lasting white thin head. Smells of chcoclate, coco, licorish, roasted malt and brown sugar. Medium to thin light body with soft carbonation. The carbonation is a little chemically but overall quite nice. Tastes of milk chocolate, licorish, and a bitter ashy peppery. Enjoyable. and easy to drink. The finish is a bit tart like I liked envelopes for too long.

halfonit (1303) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours a hazy brown/amber color. Aroma is very sweet. Apple peels, malts, and a little chocolate are there. Sweeter, oil slick and slight carbonation palate. Flavor is of malts, vanilla, oak, and cocoa. Leaves a sweeter, slightly bitter malt finish.

hauxe (284) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2016
Pours ruby brown into the bottle with a creamy head, nice lacing at the outset. Aroma is dark fruit and chocolate, with the chocolate taking the lead role over time. Taste is milk chocolate, hazelnut, and light vanilla. Medium bodied, very smooth, with a warming, chocolatey finish that has just enough underlying fruitiness to keep things from getting monotone. Very pleasant stuff. Enjoy it as a dessert beer.

MarcinG (367) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Butelka 330 ml. Ciemnobrazowe o lekko palonej niskiej pianie. W zapachu dominuje czekolada kakao i palone chmiele. W smaku podobnie aczkolwiek malo tu chmielu a duzo slodkosci. Piwo ciekawe lecz bardzo niszowe.
