COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in Colorado we are blessed with abundant natural beauty.
Smokejumpers are those fearless wildland firefighters who specialize in parachuting into the wilderness so that we can continue to enjoy it. Smokejumper Imperial Porter is a tribute to them - a twenty-one degree plato porter made with barley malt hand- smoked by our brewers. Roasty brown in color, the long lingering smokiness wraps around flavors of molasses, toasted malt and an earthy hoppiness. Here’s to smoke in your glass, not in the woods. Smokejumper is the official beer of The National Smokejumper Association.

rondphoto (2046) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 23, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black, good rim head, swirls of lace. Taste is solid, mainline malt that adds just a wisp of smoke in the palate, then a bit of hops comes along as it moves effortlessly to a lingering finish. Chewy, understated, really satisfying to drink.

superspak (2633) - Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/24/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, wood smoke, toast, molasses, light char, light dark fruits, herbal hops, and roast/smoke earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/smoked malt moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, molasses, wood smoke, light char, light dark fruit, herbal hops, and roast/smokey earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, molasses, wood smoke, light char, light dark fruit, herbal hop, and roast/smokey earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast/smoked malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial smoked porter! All around great complexity and balance of dark/roast/smoked malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
