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.

CH-303 (2358) - Fribourg, - 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

I thought I was going to like this more than I did. The cocoa isn't overpowering and it isn't that sweet, but the flavor also just isn't that good.

Biała czekolada, kakao, suszone owoce, karmel, toffi. Średnio treściwe, niespecjalnie słodkie, ciut taniczne, ściągające na finiszu. Średnie do niskiego wysycenie, średnia, ziołowa goryczka.

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres "Saveur bière",très belle bouteille nous laissant découvrir une belle robe rouge-cuivrée surmontée d'une fine mousse beige peu persistante avec une faible carbonatation.Le nez est très subtil nous offrant des arômes de vieil alcool et de fruits macérés avec des notes boisées.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l'image du nez avec une douceur dominante et un petit "côté piquant" sans pointes chocolatées nous laissant sur un palais très court.Notre petit chat "Old Tom a du manger tout le chocolat !!!...15,5/20..

Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre "Saveur bière". Température de début 9 à 10°. Superbe robe rouge cuivrée surmontée d'une fine et peu persistante mousse beige; faible carbonatation. Nez subtil sur des arômes boisés : vieil alcool, fûts et fruits macérés. Le goût est dominé par la douceur avec des saveurs houblonnées et une note piquante. Le palais de longueur réduite est plaisant mais manque d'un peu d'épaisseur. L'ensemble est tout de même bien agréable et évoque un Barley Wine léger. 15,5/20

Butelka 330ml pite w domu. Kolor brązowy klarowny, piana solidna ładnie osiada na szkle. Aromat czekolady w smaku czekolada, praliny i karmel, słodkie. Nie jest wybitne ale solidne piwo bez rażących błędów, do wypicia.

Pite u Marcina D. w HQ
Całkiem przyjemne, wyraźnie czekoladowe, pełne, pralinkowe. Nieprzesłodzone, ładnie ukazany charakter piwa angielskiego. Trochę męczy czymś z pogranicza łodygi, ale jest to na tyle w tle, że można pominąć.
Bardzo solidne i przyjemne piwo.

gorthaurz (111) - CROATIA - JUL 10, 2017
Pours a dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is of malts, caramel and chocolate. Taste is malts, chocolate. Slighty sweet and sour. Slightly sour finish

IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2017
Interesting scent of a dusty Red Velvet cake sprinkled with a pinch of unsweetened baking cocoa. Beautiful ruby hues with a foamy but short-lived beige head. The chocolate jumps out at you right away but is quickly followed by the layers of malts fading slowly to a mild bitter finish, has a slight warming follow. Quite nice.

Bottle on the P&O Oceans near Greece. Don’t usually go for novelty beers bit this one is worth a try. Pours dark brown with a good head which lasts. Aroma is strongly chocolate and hazelnut with some vanilla. The taste is like a decent hoppy IPA with the chocolate layered on top rather than competing with the hops. Good malty backbone to carry the lot. Hop bitterness is prominent and lingering. Well balanced. Quite an enjoyable after dinner ale. Good one for the style.

FinnIckler (884) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle from beergium.com. Pours brown. Nose is chocolate, cocoa, orange peel, bloodorange, toffee. Taste is phenolic, chocolate, wood, kind of a weird hoppy aftertaste. Finish is bitter chocolate. Good, but not as good as the old Suffolk. I need to try the non chocolate version too.
