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.

zoucrew102 (1421) - - MAY 21, 2016
Bomber, 2014 vintage. Smokey aroma with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. Pours deep brown with a thin light brown head with poor retention and very little lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate and roasted malt flavors that has a rich, chewy mouthfeel. Finishes impeccably smooth with excellent smoke flavor wafting through the initial flavors to linger nicely on the palate. Well balanced and by far the best smoked beer I've had so far.

Pours a deep dark brown with a small reddish brown head. Aromas of liquid smoke, sardines, and firewood. Flavors of chocolate, espresso, and smoke. Nice dry crisp finish. Smokey aftertaste stays with you for awhile.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
650ml bottle. Darkest brown. Short tan head. Aroma has chocolate maltiness, brown sugar, hops and a restrained smokiness. Taste adds sticky molasses and coffee bean notes. Not too sweet. Smokiness is much less than I expected throughout but still a very good porter.

_angst_ (4553) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Bomber bought @ Systembolaget. Pours blackish dark brown with a creamy mocha head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty, smokey and boozy with roasted malts, caramel, dark roast coffee, fried banana with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, smoked ham, minerals and alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty, smokey and slightly boozy. Mouthfeel is round, slightly viscous, tiny roasted astringent, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, smoked ham, burnt wood, minerals, alcohol and hints of fried banana. Very well integrated smoke on a solid slightly banana estery imperial porter. Bit hot but it suits the beer and drinking experience. I like it!
