This is probably the beer that the Beefeaters relax with after a day of standing at attention and ignoring the gawking tourists. Big and chewy, with substantial caramel and dark fruit flavors, this ale is surpisingly smooth for the heft that it carries. A touch of sweetness balances the slight alcohol flavor in the background. A strong ale that drinks like an ESB.

New bottle pour technique produces a mahogany body with thick tight white head that sticks.

Aromas of leather, shaving soap, dairy fudge and tapioca.

Rich deep taste, the 100 day bottle conditioning shines through like nobodies business, toffee, cream fight on your tongue with malts and hints of ginger.
In comes a real brewers mash tasting hop and leaves on a bitter note.

Thick, Thick chewy mouthfeel low perfect carb

gorgeous ale, real end of dinner/night drink.

Now repeat in cockney accent

Lav - a - ley!

Appearance: Very dense, light amber head with large, doughy bubbles. Rich, copper body with moderate carbonation.

Smell: Bittersweet and wine-like, with many fruit overtones. The hops gave a mild floral aroma.

Taste: Sweet, but still very clean. It became mellower as it warmed. The light carbonation and the creamy head gave it a very smooth mouthfeel.

Poured out a deep amber color with a nice foamy head that settled down eventually.

Smell consisted of a lot of dark fruits at first. Hops show their strength as well, along with some toasted malts.

Taste starts out quite sweet, but it's not cloying in any way. Then that gives away to a solid malt backbone which hops ride along with it. Molasses shows up in the middle and lasts into the aftertaste. Tastes quite good.

Mouthfeel was medium with a good check on carbonation. Felt quite smooth and creamy. Went down too quick.

This is good stuff. I only see this beer once in a while in stores. Too bad I don't see it more often.
