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, 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 hadnt 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 doesnt endure. Smells yeasty. Typical old ale taste with background chocolate syrup. Nowhere near as nice as the last one. Maybe it doesnt lend itself to being chilled. 3.4

Average becomes 3.8

dexcansino (575) - Andaluca, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2013
He probado otras cervezas con chocolate, pero sin lugar a dudas sta es la que tiene el aroma a cacao. Es de color marrn 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 tambin algo especiado, como romero o pimienta. Mejor no muy fra.

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.

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.

SamP01 (662) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Pours a rusty reddish brown with a small lasting beige head. Aroma is of dark malt, chocolate, some gain notes. Taste of dark caramel malt, chocolate. Light bitter notes. Palate is a medium body, mild carbonation, as a nice sweet chocolate flavor. The finish is a combination of dark caramel and chocolate malt, has more of a chocolate liqueur flavor that lingers with light bitterness. Overall a flavorful and tasty brew.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
330ml bottle bought at Castle Hotel and shared with Finn at the pub. Near-clear, amber coloured body. Spotty rings of lace down the glass. Aroma of earthy malts and nuts, semi-sweet. Flavoured with vanilla, cocoa and chocolate offset by herbal hops. Not overly sweet to the ending. Medium bodied. Enjoyable (Manchester, 21.01.2013).
