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.

Bottle thanks to 1thfloor for sharing. Pours deem amber brown ruby hues with a small white froth. Aroma is sweet cocoa, fruity esters, dark fruit, some vanilla, marshmallow, some woodiness. Flavor starts sweet vanilla, some cocoa and fudgey sweet candy with hints of oak and marshmallow still there. Finishes quickly. Medium body and a super sharp catbonation.

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 (291) - 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.

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.
