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.

I am a chocolate Tom. Watch my star rise and fall. Your beauty is there for the pleasure of the throng. Sing now, sing till the end.

Foam disappear really fast, bronze color, smell like candied fruit in brandy but not in a happy way !! Taste and palate is the same. Can smell something close to chocolate when it’s warmup, but not even close to it. Make me thing of a basic Malt Beverage then a finish Ale.

Clear amber color with decent light brown foam head. Aroma is Bayleys, definately. Taste is bit strange, it tries to be sweet but it doesn’t manage, it tries to be chocolate, but it doesn’t manage. Aftertaste same, no one taste prevails. (Moscow 201304)

Bottle. Dark amber with a beige head that’s soon a coat. Aroma is pruney with vanilla and chocolate. An unpleasant wet cardboard note is there at first, but pretty much clears off in short order. Thin body, low carbonation. Sweetish with dried fruits, sherry, a little pretty crappy chocolate, vanilla. Dryish finish with moderate bitterness. Poor.

imaragingbull (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2013
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

Maris (1611) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 6/4/2013. Pours a clear quite dark amber with a small head. The aroma features quite a lot of chocolate and chico baby. the chocolate dominates the flavour, though there are also some roasty, spicy and herbal notes. Finishes with a medium bitterness. The carbonation is medium. Quite a nice drop.

mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2013
330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Low level of light brown foam above a reddish brown beer. Thin looking with some chocolate in the aroma. Chocolate in the background with something that I just can’t put my finger on.

Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2013
Clear dark brown body with red highlights and an off-white head. Picking up vanilla and stone fruit on the nose. The taste is initially dominated by dark fruits (sultanas, stewed plums) before a mild but smooth chocolate taste washes through. Finishes quite sweet with a chocolatey aftertaste. Everything is surprisingly well integrated. Not bad at all.

BaroneBirra (510) - Gorizia, ITALY - APR 2, 2013
Medium off white head , murky reddish chocolate color .Aroma of cocoa and rum. Taste of milk chocolate, raisins,malt and some tartness . smooth texture , full body

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