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.

larsga (5967) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2014
Small brown head. Opaque black body. Earthy herbal licorice aroma with smoky notes. Dry-sweet roasty licorice and chocolate taste with smoky notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft mouthfeel with slight heat at the end. Dryish roasty earthy chocolate aftertaste with minty juniper notes. Nice, mellow, full-flavoured, harmonic. I really liked this one. You’d think a smoked juniper porter would taste like a Norwegian farmhouse ale, but somehow it doesn’t. Not sure why. (0.65l bottle, from ..., not sure, but I think Copenhagen.)

Grzesiek79 (2974) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 10, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Botled On: 02.07.2012. Ogolnie dobre ale az takiego szalu nie ma jak widze po tej ocenie tego piwa. Piana srednia i nietrwala, ale bardzo ciemna brazowawa. Czarne nieprzezroczyste, Palonosc srednia chociaz slod wyczowalny mocno, wedzenie umiarkowane, Slodko palone jest ogolnie to piwo, ale finisz tak jak lubie zdecydowanie wytrawny i dlugi. Butelka nie posiada informacji o zawartosci alkoholu, ale ogolnie sie go nie wyczuwa, a takze o pojemnosci, chyba ma 0,66.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Vintage 2008 A: Pours black, little head formation. What does form is a think sheet of latte over the surface that runs the throat of the glass. There’s little/no lacing. When light does run through, the beer is excellently clarified. Comes thru mahogany. S: Smokey! Plenty of chocolate malts, anise backgrounds. Although dominated by the smoke (very much a campfire smoke), beer comes across as well balanced on the nose. Still anticipate quite the smoke bomb here... T: Much more balanced than anticipated. Good, thick malty beer with a healthy coat of smoke. Some hints of butane and briquette dance in the smokiness. Ongoing malts provide hints of raisin on the finish. M: Thick, slicking AND drying. Weird feel here. Not against, but definitely unique. Medium to high carb for the beer. D: Good beer, but one is enough, and is not something I would likely pick up again. Serving type: bottle 03-14-2011

Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of smoke and some malt. Flavor follows. Somewhat roasty malt and some smoke. Not overbearing. Medium to full bodied. Nice beer.

Its not the best smoked porter I’ve had, but its a pretty solid one. Smoke aromas compliment the roastiness. The subtle acidic smoke flavor is also off set by the chocolate.

22 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown/black with 2 fingers of head and excellent lacing. Aroma was coffee, dark chocolate, and just a hint of smoke. Taste was grainy, coffee, and smokier than the smell with a bitter finish.

Erasmus_ro (1192) - Alabama, USA - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 66cl bottle, consumed 27/10/13. Pours black with a decent, latte-colored head. Aroma is somewhat smoky, quite chocolatey, decent roast, some coffee, some dark fruit, semi-sweet. Taste is quite a lot of smoke, medium roasty, some chocolate and coffee. Not very sweet. Some hoppiness drying up the finish. Full, oily, not much carbonation. I think this needs a bit more with this hype and at this ABV.
