Review: Smoked Porter

Smoked, Oaked, & Maple Porter

Appearance: Deep brown and thin. Light permeates all but the deepest body. No head to speak of.

Aroma: It was smoky and hot with a lot of bourbon in the nose.

Flavor: Rich bourbon, heat, the aroma from the oak and the smoke come through differently in the glass, the oak is in the flavor, the smoke comes through in the finish.

Mouth: Flat, did not carbonate, not 100% sure why.

Overall: A huge disappointment this tasted so good at bottling, and I was really looking forward to the carbonated version of this. I am not sure what to do, I think I'll pop the remaining 4 bottles and put some yeast in them. I'll recap and if it carbonates I'll re review it. #fail.
