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.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a decent head, that doesn’t linger much. Amber colour, with beatiful shades of red and orange to the light. I really can’t find chocolate in the aroma, which is alcoholic, like a liquor, with vanilla and fruits. Medium body, thin palate. Taste is like a medical syrup, with chocolate, and fruits. It doesn’t seem to work for me...

From hipercor, last unit. In duvel glass. after dinner. Amazing aroma, with soft smell and taste to chocolate of the finest kind. Alcohol isnt noticeable. Even with the chocolate is sweetnrss and bitterness are very well balanced, making it very comfortable to drink. A pity that the chocolatier simon dun had to close its business as Ive read in google. Probably wont be able to tase another of this exquisite beverage again

Just a little hint of chocolate, nuts, spruce, barnyard. Dark brown, minimal head. Light sweetness, lightly bitter, thin feel, lively. Overall, little disappointing and not my favorite.

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Choc aroma is bolder on the nose than it is on the tongue but it’s there throughout. Clear deep reddish brown beer with off white head. Pleasant smooth malty taste with delicate choc slightly dry finish.

SinH4 (1065) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Hazy ambet-brown color with small head. Aroma is toffee, malt, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is more toffee, malt, not too sweet, nice bitter chocolate character. Or actually, it’s milk chocolate, but not sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. Really really nice, well-balanced.

jamaty (1230) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Color chocolate, oscura. Aroma intenso a chocolate. Sabor potente a chocolate. Lleva chocolate en la receta. Estupendamente combinado con la malta tostada,con cuerpo moderado y adecuada carbonatación. Muy conseguida, una excelente cerveza de postre o como copa.

Mittelbraun leicht rötlich mit weißem Schaum. Schon in der Nase zeigt sich deutlich die Schokolade. Diese dominiert dann auch deutlich den Geschmack, ohne künstlich zu wirken: Milchschokolade und herbe Kakaonoten werden von einer schönen Malzigkeit begleitet, dazu eine passende Bitternote. Gut!
