look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

a: This was a murky brown; served to me with a thin, short lived head.

s: Vanilla, sugary booze, sweet bread, and some woody astringency.

t: Sweet and boozy overall. Some earthy/peaty malts and a little caramel take a back seat to sugary liquor, sharp vanilla, and plenty of lingering woodiness.

m: Gently carbonated and medium to light body.

o: Not sure about this one. Apparently a cream/brown ale hybrid? Okay but I won't revisit.

I had a flight of JH beers; the Colonial Cream as well as the Spiker and West Indies. The Cream was easily the best of the the three with a nice appearance and decent aroma. It's a complex tasting beer with a good finish and easy on the palate with all that alcohol. First time tasting of this line.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, high carbonation, red-brown in color, cloudy

Smell: toasted malt, toffee, and oak

Taste: big oak and toasted malt, brandy, light vanilla and nut

Mouthfeel: heavy body, sweet with oakiness, high carbonation

Overall: A good complex, oaky, brown ale. Best beer from this brewery that I have had to date. I would get this again.
