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.

Great chocolate aroma, Mouldy tang, musky, disappointing finish. Like eating chocolate that’s gathered dust.

Pours a brown amber color in the glass. Slight wet cardboard and toasty malt aroma. Milk chocolate flavor upfront followed by a clean dry alcohol note. Overall, its decent but not that exciting...

Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Barton upon Humber. Deep chestnut brown, thin but lasting tight off white head and good condition. Sweet and peppery in the nose with a gentle bitter chocolate powder note and a suggestion of biscuits. Slightly fruity initially in the mouth with a dry woodiness developing before a chocolate sweetness gives it a degree of balance, finish is slightly spicy but muted, with a quite harsh fruity bitterness developing and lingering

Quick review--had this a few days ago while on cruise in Spain. Decent beer selection with a few I hadn’t seen before, this being one of them. Pretty delicious--remarkably light-bodied for a "chocolate beer" (accustomed to the viscous imperial stouts). Very drinkable and solid malt-forward beer.

May 2012 - Room temp bottle named ’Chocolate Tom’. Nice chocolately start (caramel/toffee chocolate liquer tastes)- bittersweet aftertaste. Really nice beer. 4.1

June 2013 - Cold bottle, this time called ’Old Tom with Chocolate’. Murky dark red. Head doesn’t endure. Smells yeasty. Typical old ale taste with background chocolate syrup. Nowhere near as nice as the last one. Maybe it doesn’t lend itself to being chilled. 3.4

Average becomes 3.8

IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 18, 2013
330ml bottle from Country Club Liquors. Nose is cocoa, sweet caramel, and a vanilla hint. Clear light brown with a medium beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter cocoa.

dexcansino (574) - Andalucía, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2013
He probado otras cervezas con chocolate, pero sin lugar a dudas ésta es la que tiene el aroma a cacao. Es de color marrón dejando pasar algo de luz. Cuerpo medio, poco gaseada y seca. El sabor no es tan interesante como el olor. Notas evidentemente a chocolate, pero también algo especiado, como romero o pimienta. Mejor no muy fría.

RexTalionis (3763) - FINLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours brown in color with a tan head. Sweet brown sugar, some syrup and roasted malty notes in aroma, more milk chocolate later on. Milk chocolate in taste at first. Feels quite dry. More bitter and darker chocolate towards the end.

Jetulio (119) - Tarragona.SPAIN, SPAIN - MAR 9, 2013
330 ml bottle poured into a Pint glass Appearance....... muddy brown beer with head colour beige of almost 1,5 fingers Aroma............... grass, floral, cocoa. Fresh and not too strong smell with a touch of malty aroma Taste........ malt and chocolate, sweetness appears soon lasting all the time, Mouthfeel........... medium body and medium/soft carbonation Overall............ nothing special or spectacular but nothing wrong with this peculiar ale.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Subtle aroma of milk chocolate. Pours a dark clear amber with no head or lacing. The taste is mildly sweet. Milk chocolate initially, giving way to toasted malts with a grainy finish. Somewhat of a cola aftertaste. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Refreshing. The chocolate flavor was not overwhelming, which was good, but overall, the taste was subdued and rather watery.
