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.

worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Medium dark amber brown with a fizzy light lace lasting white thin head. Smells of chcoclate, coco, licorish, roasted malt and brown sugar. Medium to thin light body with soft carbonation. The carbonation is a little chemically but overall quite nice. Tastes of milk chocolate, licorish, and a bitter ashy peppery. Enjoyable. and easy to drink. The finish is a bit tart like I liked envelopes for too long.

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

Strong, malty aroma has a firm overtone of cocoa - almost smells more like hot cocoa than like beer. Hey, I love chocolate! Pours a clear sepia with a nice fluffy and fine-bubbled wheat head. Malty flavor has a strong cocoa overtone, which I found rather enjoyable. I detected hints of apple and caramel as well. Texture has firm body and good fizz, leaving a malty and chocolaty finish. This is a good beer for the fall, when the leaves are turning and it’s time to break out the down comforter.

jookos (7037) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Brown-nutty, clear. Nose has a strong vanilla / nutty groove. Sweetish, dark murky malty. Chocolate powder. Body is soft, medium. The vanilla is there again. The nuttyness. Caramel. A bit of an oily finish. Feels almost like a cream soda. Interesting, ok for one bottle, especially if you’re a friend of root beer, but doesn’t feel malt-beery.

17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear sticky looking chestnut brown with little head. Aroma is sweet, brown sugar and banana, vanilla. Really this tastes like old fashion cream soda, root beer barrel and vanilla, some chocolate in the finish. Light carbonation, lightly syrupy but overall thin in body and backing flavor, everything is upfront. Milk dud powdered milk and chocolate finish.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle thanks to 1thfloor for sharing. Pours deem amber brown ruby hues with a small white froth. Aroma is sweet cocoa, fruity esters, dark fruit, some vanilla, marshmallow, some woodiness. Flavor starts sweet vanilla, some cocoa and fudgey sweet candy with hints of oak and marshmallow still there. Finishes quickly. Medium body and a super sharp catbonation.

2.2
SphinxTX (2878) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark amber with some red hues and beige head. Aroma has some caramel, fruit esters, chocolate and a touch of grain. Flavor is another story.....notes of grain, some fruit esters and chocolate, but, alot of medicinal mint....Menthol??? Yes, thats what I am getting....light-medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, not impressed! I will try again down the road.

umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle at One-Eyed Betty’s in Ferndale. Pours a pitch black color with a small amount of beige head that lingers a bit. Aroma is almost entirely chocolate fudge with a small scent of vanilla. Taste is very smooth and lightly sweet. Lots of chocolate and not much else. Somewhat thin body. This was pretty tasty but nothing amazing.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Very, very smooth. Light chocolate flavor, especially with the finish. Decent but certainly not the best. Worth a try but not worth hunting for.

3.6
