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

Bulk_Carrier (4532) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Treated as an imperial smoked porter, this was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a good pace. Mild lacing builds around the rims nicely and adequately. The aroma takes on the normal qualities of a smoked porter: some meatiness (maybe ham/bacon) and then theres some salt, did they do this intentional? Me, I dont mind, but have to admit, thats a bit different. The flavor yields to the sweet to smoky meatiness flowing over a sly earthy/bitter hoppiness. Saltiness comes back slyly. Decent flowing meaty sweet sly stickiness flowing over my tongue, sly subtleties. Overall, a very nice imperial smoked porter that I would love to have again, but not comparable to De Molens Bloed, Zweet & Tranen or Alaskans Smoked Porter. Dont get me wrong, its good, but just not up there.

22 oz bottle shared, purchased at Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Black appearance with a light brown head. Aroma of smoked malts, roasted grain, light chocolate and hints of coffee. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and mild sweetness. Medium to full body with a lingering smoky finish. Nice.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Aroma - has a mix of iron, peat, barley, beechwood smoke, char, jerky meatiness, and slight very subdued herbal nature. Appearance - the body is black, and the head is around 2" and khaki in color. The head hangs around for a while. There is good wispy lacing. Taste - is rich with big, but pleasant smoke. The smoke is similar to what you would get out of fine German Rauchbiers. Im assuming the smoke comes from a fine beechwood smoked malt - the subtle notes of that malt beneath the smoke appear to have some molasses, barley, and some herbs. Overall you get smoke, peat, a slight meatiness (a smoked county sausage), molasses, and a slight roast. Palate - body is approaching the full mark, texture is somewhat creamy and thick, the carbonation is average, and the finish smoky, meaty, and the faintest touch astringent.

zoucrew102 (1622) - - MAY 21, 2016
Bomber, 2014 vintage. Smokey aroma with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. Pours deep brown with a thin light brown head with poor retention and very little lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate and roasted malt flavors that has a rich, chewy mouthfeel. Finishes impeccably smooth with excellent smoke flavor wafting through the initial flavors to linger nicely on the palate. Well balanced and by far the best smoked beer I've had so far.
