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.

oh6gdx (20670) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2009
Bottled@Sorbon, Brommaplan, Stockholm. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is bigtime chocolate, not really much else. Maybe even a bit artificial chocolate... Flavour is chocolate, some hoppy fruityness, earth and caramel malts. Bigtime smooth chocolate finish... I’m just a sucker for chocolate beers...

omhper (19698) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2009
Bottled at Sorbon, Stockholm. Clear nut brown, minimal head. Artificial vanilla aroma. Sweetish with clean mouthfeel. The vanilla and chocolate marries so ill with the sweet beer that it reaches Huyghe-like proportions. the most misguided attempt at a chocolate beer since Floris. More or less undrinkable.
