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.

Dark with a foamy residual brown head. Smells of smoked meat. Taste is huge and complex. There are a variety of smokey flavors, salty esters, caramel malt, and a slight alcohol. Wonderful, complex, and satisfying. Wouldnít want more than one though.

25 oz bottle, via cewldre. Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black, body under a generous two finger brown head that climbed out of my snifter. Aroma is a wonderfully balanced combo of campfire smoke, roast, caramel, chocolate, bacon, and light hops. Flavor is more Imperial Porter than Smoked though. Roast, caramel, and a chalky ashiness up front, followed by some burnt malt and smoke on the slightly alcoholic finish. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Finishes a little sticky with a throat warming alcoholic kick. A pretty nice beer. I love me some smoked Porters.

black pour with dark beige creamy bubbly head. aroma of sausage and chocolate and oak, with some bacon and barbeque smoke and a little espresso. flavor is a LOT of smoke, mostly barbeque pork and oak flavor with some vanilla and espresso. hints of chocolate and bacon. now see i love smoked beers though so while some people may think this sounds gross, i adore it. nice creamy mouthfeel too.

Drank one of these that had spent a day open. If itís this good after way too much air, canít wait to crack open a fresh! Dark brown color with lots of smoke in the nose. Flat because of how long it had been open. More woody smoke in the body but didnít get much else. Iíll re-review once I open the bottle in my fridge.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2007 Let the drinker be aware that a correction should be made on the ABV. The percentage on my bottle says 10.5%, but as I íve seen it is actually only 9.8% very upsetting! The aroma of this beer was great. I believe I rated it higher than others, but I feel that the aroma is very complex. The smell of smoke, chocolate, and wood hit your nose at different times, and I have yet to pour my beer. As I just finished pouring the smell of smoke is very noticeable. I have seen others raters talk about the massive amount of head, I actually did not experience this aspect of the beer. The color is a nice dark brown/black color. The palate is dissappointing. The beer is too carbonated. The beer is also not thick enough. The taste is pretty nice. Very complex. The hint of coffee, chocolate, wood, smoke, and leather are all there. A complex beer, and a very smoked beer with a disappointing ABV. Also, I should note that the palate really kills the taste(s) of this beer, which is why I am only giving the palate a 2.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Pours black, big brown head. Smells like smoked meat. Flavor is sweet with lots of smokey goodness, but the aroma can be overpowering at times. The alcohol is almost not noticeable, though it sneaks up on you. I am feeling it right now.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 Applewood bacon, campfire, and molasses! This is a wonderfully malted, subtly roasted rauch bomb, with a nice hop presence to keep things from becoming to soupy. Iím not even a huge fan of the style (particularly not the traditional Germans - so sue me) but between Alaskan, Stone, and now this, I could become a convert.

750ml bottle enjoyed during the 3rd annual St. Patís day celebration. Dark chestnut pour with a light wispy head. Medium amounts of smoke in the aroma which always remind me of salmon. But there is also some nice roasted malt and a light sweetness. The flavor has a good dosage of smoked grain but not as overpowering as the Alaskan Smoked Porter. Light sweetness of molasses and caramel and perhaps a hint of chocolate. Not a favorite but not bad for a smoked brew.

Just a cool looking beer, obsidian black with a big tan head. The aroma is subtle, smoky like an early morning fireplace in the neighborhood. The smoke flavor is really nicely balanced with a chocolate, vanilla, and cream texture.
