COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
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.

Medium brown head. Clear mahogany colour. Wonderful chocolate aroma with hints of vanilla. The taste is a bit of a disappointment: Sour-bitter. The great cocoa chocolate palate unfolds slowly, yet intensely. Very nice.

bottle pours a ruby red brown colour with beige lingering head .chocolate on the nose with malt and green fruit . taste is dominatde by milky chocolate with some malt and bitterness coming through . medium carbonation and mouthfeel . quite pleasant but I prefer regular Old Tom and chocolate works better in stout for me

CH-303 (2407) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Appearance: Dark redish brown, clear. Some off-white head. Aroma: Dark chocolate, also some fruits and malt. Taste: More chocolate, but would go better with a stout than an ale. Pretty good, though. Info: 330ml bottle, 28/11-2012, BB: 06/2013

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, chocolate and quite fruity with some vanilla. Taste is also malty with more chocolate and fruit leading to a roasty, fruity and bitter finish. Disappointed to see this rated so low, I really liked it.

suurjuust (3850) - ESTONIA - NOV 11, 2012
Dark amber, creamy medium head with thin retention. Nose is cocoa, caramel and some diacetyl. Taste begins with malt, some roast in the background, sugar, and then develops into a cocoa-pepper-malt finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

3.3

Sweet cocoa aroma and taste. Not as rich and complex as a fine chocolate stout but good for what it is.
