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.

Pours a dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is of malts, caramel and chocolate. Taste is malts, chocolate. Slighty sweet and sour. Slightly sour finish

Interesting scent of a dusty Red Velvet cake sprinkled with a pinch of unsweetened baking cocoa. Beautiful ruby hues with a foamy but short-lived beige head. The chocolate jumps out at you right away but is quickly followed by the layers of malts fading slowly to a mild bitter finish, has a slight warming follow. Quite nice.

Bottle on the P&O Oceans near Greece. Don’t usually go for novelty beers bit this one is worth a try. Pours dark brown with a good head which lasts. Aroma is strongly chocolate and hazelnut with some vanilla. The taste is like a decent hoppy IPA with the chocolate layered on top rather than competing with the hops. Good malty backbone to carry the lot. Hop bitterness is prominent and lingering. Well balanced. Quite an enjoyable after dinner ale. Good one for the style.

Bottle from Pours brown. Nose is chocolate, cocoa, orange peel, bloodorange, toffee. Taste is phenolic, chocolate, wood, kind of a weird hoppy aftertaste. Finish is bitter chocolate. Good, but not as good as the old Suffolk. I need to try the non chocolate version too.

Bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is chocolate.

Rating #1000. Mahagoni with no head. Aroma is phenols, clove, spices, chocolate, green apple, oak. Taste is sparkly spicy sourness with some phenolic sweetness and lots of alcoholic bitterness. Roast and cocoa in the dry finish. Full bubbled mouthfeel. Not easy to drink. Had the non chocolate version and thought it was amazing, so I thought this would make a good 1000. Didn’t enjoy as much as expected, though.

Potpuno bistro pivo. Ne znam kako su uopšte došli na ideju da bistro pivo spoje sa čokoladom. Aroma čokolade je prejaka. Na eitketi piše da je to neka posebno gotivna i skupa čokolada ali ja bih rekao da je onaj neki ekstrakt čokolada što domaćice trpaju u kolače i torte. Prejak je za moj ukus. Alkohol nimalo sakriven. Reklo bi se da ga je daleko više od navedenih 6%. Kao neki čudan čokoladni koktel. Gorki koktel. Ništa posebno. Imao sam daleko veća očekivanje. Nadao sam se pivu sa jačim kremastim tijelom. Bogatijom aromom. Kao da sam posjetio fabriku jeftine čokolade.

33cl bottle from Tesco. Pours deep brown with rich off-white head. Aroma strong in alcohol with sweet chocolate and vanilla, also wine. Sticky texture with quite a lot of fizz.

klukas (307) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JAN 2, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a trapist glass. Appearance: Deep red colour, with small brownish head. Aroma: Chocolate liqueur, alcocol. Palate: Medium body; light carbonation. Taste: Chocolate, but also slightly sour on tongue; sweet/bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Quite ok but though I’m not a fan of sweet, I expected more.

midovark (1017) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2016
Bottled. Pours brown colour with long lasting off-white head. Roasted malts, dried fruits and strong chocolate notes in aroma. In taste it’s pleasant chocolate first but then some strange acerbic notes appear that ruin the finish. Softly carbonated, light bodied.
