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. Hereís to smoke in your glass, not in the woods. Smokejumper is the official beer of The National Smokejumper Association.

Location: Bottle shared by jcos split with dbarnold and Pinsky, 5/25/14

Aroma: This beer has a really nice smoky and malty aroma to it
Appearance: The pour is a dark brown color with a smallish tan head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is smoky and a little sweet, with some nice balancing hops
Palate:The body is medium, it has a clean, almost dry finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: Iíd be meaning to try this for a while, as I had always heard it is one of the better examples of the style out there. Plenty of smoke and meat flavors. It did not disappoint, This is a really nice one.

Brouwerij (938) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with medium tan head. Settles in minutes with minimal lace. Aroma is sweet smoke, beechwood, smoked meat. Flavor is smoky, roasted, toasty, caramel with a lingering smoky finish. Soft carbonation, medium body and smooth texture. On of the better American smoke beers but nothing groundbreaking, porter character is mostly overwhelmed by smokiness.

Chudwick (2176) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bomber into Le Guinness - nose is smoky. Savoring every second of this. Roast and almost vanilla. Dry. Next time I move some rope from Longmont to a guy named Gomez, this is what Iíll be drinking. He better have my jewels or heís getting a tennis racket to the face after I stomp on him with my cleats. LPC for the win!
