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.

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
650ml bottle. Darkest brown. Short tan head. Aroma has chocolate maltiness, brown sugar, hops and a restrained smokiness. Taste adds sticky molasses and coffee bean notes. Not too sweet. Smokiness is much less than I expected throughout but still a very good porter.

_angst_ (4128) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Bomber bought @ Systembolaget. Pours blackish dark brown with a creamy mocha head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty, smokey and boozy with roasted malts, caramel, dark roast coffee, fried banana with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, smoked ham, minerals and alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty, smokey and slightly boozy. Mouthfeel is round, slightly viscous, tiny roasted astringent, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, smoked ham, burnt wood, minerals, alcohol and hints of fried banana. Very well integrated smoke on a solid slightly banana estery imperial porter. Bit hot but it suits the beer and drinking experience. I like it!

Lawger (248) - SWEDEN - APR 30, 2015
Pours black with khaki head. Charcuterie scents, spent matches, chocolate malts, wet paper. Smells like a Bamberg Rauchbier but with a lot more malty body, pretty awesome. Medium bodied palate, medium bitterness. Loads of complexity. Very long finish with incredible balance. Some sweetness, bitterness, hints of acidity. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
