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.

Bottle thanks to Homer! Pours dark black, small tan head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is smokey for sure, campfires, ashes, roasted malts. Medium sweet, light plus smoky, lightly bitter. Notes of roasted malt, ash, wood fire, and cocoa. Medium body, low acidity. Well integrated and definitely not meaty. +1

Theydon_Bois (11566) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to Garrold, 24/01/15. Light black with a decent tan covering. Nose is liqourice, sice, light smoke, treacle toffee, dark maltings. Taste comprises dark berry fruit, more liqourice stick, light smoked malt, faint cocoa, toffee. Medium+ body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok offering but perhaps falls a little short on deliverance when considering the ABV. Iíd proably have this down as an imperial porter over smoked style wise, pretty subtle rauschings.

Decent enough, but it didnít wow me.

BlackHaddock (4556) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
24th Jan 2015: Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Poured a dark, deep brown with a cream coloured head. Smoke is the name of the game here, it rules the roost in everything about this brew. Fancy tasting and smelling a dark chocolate covered smoked ham hock rolled in gravel? Well thatís what this beer is like! Nice and different if you like smoky beers that is, which I donít.
