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.

reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Pours a chestnut/ruby color with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is light and nutty with mild chocolate...a bit like tootsie rolls. Flavor is very much like tootsie rolls with a bit of earthy hops and mild nutty/lightly roasted malt. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish lingers with roast and chocolate tootsie roll.

Clear dark orangey red with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, cocoa and dark sugar. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 170312

Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 14, 2012
Dark ambeer colour with medium head, looks ok. Nice body and carbonation. Aroma is really milk chocolate with some vanilla notes. Taste is mostly malty, sweet, and at the end it’s possible to notice the chocolate presence, but not the same as in Aroma. Good beer.

3.2
Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours brown/mahogany with about a finger of off white head. Smell is a lot of chocolate. Some maltiness. Taste is a bit of milk chocolate with a sour/bitter finish. Watery. I didn’t mind it, but it’s not a great chocolate beer.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle: Aroma of malt, light chocolate, slight vanilla, and some plasticy nail-polish remover. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. A few medium-sized particle throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, chocolate, and a little dust. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt and chocolate finish.

wlajwl (7201) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Malts and chocolate in aroma. The flavor is milk chocolate mixed with fruit, raspberry possibly. Not much in the way of an old ale in flavor or appearance, this was a decent mix of chocolate and fruit, although not exceptional in body.

3.4
jaghana (6363) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a clear dark amber beer with low creamy head. Nose is low. Aroma is medium sweet with a nice dark chocolate and caramel body, finish is very bitter with a grassy and spicy hops flavor. Good old ale with cardamom and vanilla notes.

Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2012
I approached with caution after a bad experience with chocolate porter from this brewery Very dark brown with a tan head.Chocolate and vanilla flavour, like a rather obvious dessert. Not unpleasant, just a bit, well, obvious.

italianjohn (3310) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Clear mahogany/amber pour thin off white head light sticky lacing .... aroma of chocolate, caramel malts and vanilla .... taste of sweet chocolate, caramel malts and light vanilla little sugary fruit .... dry malty flavors in the finish ..... just average swill not too bad expected more

3.5
Case (304) - GERMANY - JAN 19, 2012
Pours copper-red with almost zero head. Faint smell of chocolate and malts. Taste immediately hits you with the chocolate, caramel and roasted malts. Surprisingly ends dry on a nice bitter note. I’d have another.
