3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours clear yet opaque amber brown with small creamy light tan head and some speckled lace. Aromas of sweet malts and cocoa, doughy yeast esters and floral hops. Medium light chewy body, chocolate being apparent but balanced with the nutty base and deep caramel malt complexity. Finishes clean lightly hoppy with the hints of cocoa and malt body lingering semi sweet

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours dark brown clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is vinous and slightly sour, prunes, chocolate and hint of molasses. Taste is caramel, grass and chocolate notes. Thin to medium body with lively carbonation. Pleasant and refreshing, very quaffable without being overwhelming on the sweet side. Lovely!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear dark brown color with medium creamy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and vanilla. Taste starts sour bready and grassy, follows by mild sweet roasted malt and chocolate, even some medicinal notes present, mouthfeel is dry, while finish is medium bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. I would prefer more creamy and less grassy brew, but that’s old ale...

Nice aromatic beer with a full roasty taste and hints of dark chocolate yet somewhat fuity A bitter sweet aftertaste, in my case i could sense a plum aroma. Foam was thick and stayed in the glass long after drinking, although there wasn’t much of it. Color was a nice mahogany as stated on their site. I enjoyed it more than the "commercialy popular" dark ales.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate Tom is an easygoing dessert beer for a weeknight. At 6%, this Old Tom variant is lighter than many Old Ales currently available. Brown pour with a fluffy head. Milky, creamy chocolate and molasses aromas. Flavor is consistent with the smell: chocolate, vanilla, and molasses. A medium-bodied beer that’s big on sweet, light on heat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Molasses, milk chocolate, subtle bourbon.
A- Brown color, murky liquid, tan head.
T- Molasses, chocolate, subtle sweetness, mild alcohol.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- At first I thought I bought the regular Old Tom and was a bit disappointed when I found out it was the Chocolate version. As soon as I got a smell, the disappointment went away. This smelled like a Russell Stovers chocolate covered molasses bite and the taste is about the same. The bottle seemed bigger than it was too. Overall, I was surprisingly pleased with this one.
