Very, very smooth. Light chocolate flavor, especially with the finish. Decent but certainly not the best. Worth a try but not worth hunting for. Cuso (8616) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2012

Dark with beige foam. Chocolate, coffee and roasted aroma. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness in the end. teddybeer (3735) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 9, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark rubi coliur with an off-white head, good lasting, nice lacework. Aroma is milk chocolate, caramel and sugary. Flavour is dominated by chocolate, sweet, caramel and malts. The final is moderate sweet. Carbonation and body are medium. Texture is medium oily. degbert (1772) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown with gold highlights, and has a high, foamy, pillowy cream-colored head. There’s some chocolate notes in the nose, but also cola, citrus, and very light smoke. Definitely chocolate, but not at all sweet -- the chocolate is subdued, and more supports the old ale savory and dried fruit notes. Finishes long and bitter. Very interesting, and not at all what I expected.

The taste and aroma has a nice touch of chocolate and coffee. Maybe the lack of sparkling and livelyness is for the better...? thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle. Copper body, medium off-white head. Fruity aroma with some cocoa beans. Taste has dark berries and light cocoa. Not chocolatey in the way I had hoped for (darker and more thicker) but this type of cocoa mix works too. But still, the original Old Tom is the best. thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2012
A - Chestnut Brown fluffy white head that calmed down to a film that stuck around for half the beer.
S - candied fruits, a hint of spice, Fruit Cake, tootsie roll chocolate.
T - Sticky chewy tootsie roll fruit cake, dates and a bit of nutty aftertaste
M+D - A bit thin, I was expecting a smoother heavier mouthfeel. I could drink another though and that is unusual with me for these types of Brews. NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown in color with a bit of a ruby hue and a cocoa lacey head. The aroma notes of cocoa, caramel, and vanilla. Flavor notes of cocoa (brownie sweet like) and vanilla caramels with a touch of a hop bite in the foreground. Sweetened up and the bite died as it warmed in the glass. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2012
11.2oz bottle in a snifter. Pours brown with a lacy head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and pale malts, some dough, and floral hops. Flavor a lot like a tootsie roll. Average texture. An interesting beer.
