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.

Smoke is very well integrated here. Pours black/cloudy brown with good head and lacing. Smells smokey but well tended. Some roasty malt and dark chocolate. Finishes with some light bitterness. Soft carbonation. Thanks to CraftyCarl for this recommendation. Tap at Churchkey.

Location/Date:Bottle split with Jay, Shane and Jess on 4/18/2014.

Appearance: Pours black with light head.
Aroma: Aroma mostly of smoke.
Taste: Roasty, chocolatey, light smoke, light bitter.
Palate:Medium body, sticky.

Summary: Glad I finally got to find and enjoy this. Definitely a smoke beer, but the smoke isn’t as prevalent as in a smoked lager. Really enjoyable.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en noviembre de 2013. Sabores de maltas tostados y ahumados bastante notables y bien combinados. Cuerpo medio de 8.8 vol y con buen paso por boca. Bastante buena y para repetir unas cuantas veces mas sin dudarlo.

I like smoke better than hoppiness. Smoke gives me happiness though hoppiness leads me to other places.
