In its stubby brown bottle, Old Tom looks fairly humble. The winking ginger cat on the front however, gives us a fair idea that this ale is going to be a bit naughty.
And naughty it is.
Like a fine gentleman with a beard, Old Tom is velvety, rich and smooth. The taste of chocolate follows the deep taste of ale and is bitter, but is balanced with the sweetness of Madagascan vanilla; It’s like having a Magnum ice-cream with your pint of ale. Oh, go on then!
The perfect and must-have addition to any half-decent steak and ale pie, Old Tom’s Strong Ale is as it says ‘strong’ and full-bodied too. Marinate your steak in this bad boy and you’ll be drooling with each bite.
It says ‘winter treat’ on the bottle. Bollocks to that; this is an anytime treat!
