3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark redbrown beer pours to my glass with a nice beige head that settles down to a nice foam cloud over the drink. The aroma is heavy with strong, sweet malts, sour cherry and a hint of chocolate. The taste is also heavily malty, bitter, a bit sour and does have a hint of chocolate with sweetness. The texture is a bit thin but with nice carbonation. All in all, I’d have preferred to have had the original, which is a genuinely great beer. It was a bit of a disappointed to me to see only this Old Tom in the beer shelf of the Lithuanian market I bought this from.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a deep red cough syrup colour with loose beige head than vanished quick. Aroma thick of sweet malts and sour cherry. Taste a bold mix of bitter-sweet malts, moving to big dry woody finish that may pass for cocoa dust, but I can’t detect any obvious chocolate flavours. Palate watery yet moderate body due to carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark mahogany with almost no head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel. Taste is a bit bitter, some sweet chocolate, but not really all that pleasant. Regular Old Tom is far superior to this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rødbrun i fargen med et hvit skum som varte en stund. Aroma av malt, karamell, hint av sjokolade og urter. Smaken følger aroma, men litt tynn munnfølelse.
