Old Tom with chocolate Strong Ale. A blend of Old Tom and the finest English chocolate. Old Tom with chocolate is a sensuously rich warming combination of Robinsons award winning Old Tom Ale 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. Old Tom is recognised as one of the most famous strong ales brewed in England, and the addition of this original recipe developed by Robinsons with the renowned chocolatier Simon Dunn makes for a deliciously indulgent winter treat. Contains malted barley.

    Pours a cloudy copper with a sub one finger off white head that goes away fairly quick. Decent carbonation. Aroma is malty and very sweet with hints of chocolate and caramel. Taste is like nothing I have tasted to date. and is very complex. The best I can do is say it is the bastard child of a scotch ale and a best bitter with a tad bit of chocolate added. Slight burn as it goes down. Down side is that it is a tab bland and could be livened up a bit during the brewing process. Not as good as hoped but it is surely different.

    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.

    Clear amber color with decent light brown foam head. Aroma is Bayleys, definately. Taste is bit strange, it tries to be sweet but it doesn’t manage, it tries to be chocolate, but it doesn’t manage. Aftertaste same, no one taste prevails. (Moscow 201304)

    330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.0%. Mahogany coloured beer with a thick off-white to beige head. Strong and dominant sweetish aroma of chocolate and vanilla, not unpleasant, but pretty close ... The flavour has loads of cocoa and vanilla, on a malty base with some vinous notes, but the beer is not nearly as sweet as the aroma made me fear. There are some moderate hops in the finish. This is a nice change-of-pace beer, but I would normally prefer the "ordinary" Old Tom.
