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.

C&C 750. Black with a beige head. Nice, smoky flavor a bit of burnt malt. Woody smoke finish. Easily the most drinkable of the style Iíve had. Excellent, albeit a tad pricey.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2007
2006 Bottle: The body is a very dark brown with a modest yet sustained tan head that does some slippery lacing. Fine rauchbier aroma of peat smoke and Virginia ham over some chocolate and roasted malts. (Honest. The combination works.) The high alcohol level is a bit of a distraction in the flavor, my preference being for a more sessionable smoked beer. Still, the smoke and chocolatey roasted malts are smoothly blended along with a woody, earthy hop bitterness. The finish is dry and full of smoke. Not too shabby.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle and served in my Stone IRS snifter: A deep brown hue with an initial huge frothy beige head and outstanding lace. The aroma is pure bliss with a proper amount of smoked and peated malts, chocolate and sweet malts, hint of espresso, and even a dose of grassy/herbal hops. The taste is smoky for sure but I think the balance of nutty and mocha malt and a surprisingly noticeable piney hop bitterness kept this beer very drinkable. The finish is ashy dry and even a bit woody. The mouth feel is dry as mentioned, soft carbonation and little note of alcohol. Dangerously drinkable indeed. A wonderful expression of the style that I thought for sure was underrated until I logged onto the beer itself...

Thanks holdenn for this beer. Dark brownish color and somewhat opaque with no head. Smoke aroma that you can smell a mile away with a little malt. Rausch smoke, choclate malt, little else. Thin and no carb. A crazy smoked beer, very good.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Dark brownish black color. Sweet smoky malt flavors. Not too smoky by any means. Farily even and very drinkable. I thought it leaned more towards the porter and less towards smoke. Rich and smooth palate. Good.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Thanks Immy. 750 ml bottle. Date 2006, 9.2% ABV. Pours black in color with brown head. Aroma of malt and SMOKE and more SMOKE. Taste of roasted malt and SMOKE.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Corked and caged 2006 bottle conditioned. Label says 10.%ABV. Large tan fizzy head that was mostly lasting with a fair amount of lacing, opaque, dark brown hue, and no signs of carbonation. Malty, roasty, smokey aroma and ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel and medium body. Not a favorite style of mine, but this one is pretty good and worthy of a try.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Smokey, caramel, and vanilla in the aroma. Pours black with a tan head. Smooth vanilla and chocolate with some coffee, with a sturdy smoke background. A great beginer smoke beer, for those that like porters/stouts. Very smooth, not as smokey as a rauchbier, but very drinkable for the alcohol %.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Appearance: Pours a brown-black, near opague body with a diminishing, light brown head. Smell: Abundantly smokey! Beyond the smokescreen, thereís some roasted malts, rich caramel, dark chocolate, and smoked sausages. Taste: Just a little too excessively smokey for me, as for me the imperial porter qualities are smothered under a blanket of smoke, sausages, and chimney sweepings. Sure, thereís dark malts, caramel, French Roast coffee, and even some piney hops, but your tongue has to be ready to excavate it from beneath all the smoke. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Slight creaminess. Drinkability: If youíre looking for a smokey beer, than this brew will happily rub some salt into the wounds that such beers as Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Urbock and Alaskan Smoked Porter have begun to fester within you.

Huge rocky head. Light-brown witha haed thatís long lasting. Black color. Lots of great roasted aroma with mild coffee and chocolate. Smokiness is definitely present, but not overpowering. Lots of malt, as well. Lots of carbonation Not too overpowering smoke in the taste. Very smooth and I couldnít really taste the alcohol, but could feel it as it warmed up. Itís been a while since I had an Alaska Smoked Porter, but would like to do a head to head comparison.
