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.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - SEP 19, 2007
Appearance is black with a thick tan head. Aroma is of smoke and some roasted malt. Flavor is nicely smoked, taste somewhat of smoked meat with a nice malt backbone. Very slight roasted coffee taste underneath the smoke. I really like this style and this is one of the best ones that Ive had so far.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2007
This is good sh*t. Olive, cedar, light smoke and horsey aroma. Mildy acidic and peaty. Nice balance. Chalky finish over coffee. Got to talking and didnt over-analyze, but the long and short of it is that this is a really fine brew.

Bottle from GoldtwinsThanks!
Pours a rich, deep, brown with an aroma of of campfire smoke and sausage. Seriously, theres some hot/mild links in there; just sniff for awhile. Nice smokey flavor that gives a hint of what a decent campfire should be; aroma and flavor are almost perfect. This is a beer that should be sampled by EVERYONE.

A nice beer from start to finish, I just wish it had a bit more smokeyness to it than there was. Aroma was dark chocolate a touch of wood, but not nearly enought smokey character in the nose for my liking. After diggning a bit deeper there was a bit of charcoal, and molasses present. Appearance was stunning. Big thick khaki head, solid deep brown color with a garnet hue next to a bright light. Mouthfeel was a bit overcarbonated. Flavor had much more smoke presence that the aroma, but for me it just wasnt enough. I thought Alaskan SP was a much better example of the smokiness in a smoked porter. Some flavors in this beer were smoke, burnt wood, chocolate, toffee and a touch of molasses to round it out. The alcohol content gets kicked up a bit towards the end, which is a bit of a letdown. A nice beer for sure, and Im glad I shared it with my brother because Im not sure I would want to drink 750ml of this.

egajdzis (6232) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Poured a dark brown / red color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked wood, char, sweet chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, with roasted malts, and a large, dry, smoked wood taste, almost a bit salty, with bitter hops, and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Deep brown, moderate to large light brown head, fairly sticky lacing.   Huge smoked nose, campfire, charred wood, and more smokiness.   Getting a little alcohol too.   Subtle porter underneath the heaps of smoked malts, campfire, ash, and charred wood.   Has a slight bit of bacon to it as well.   Has a subtle milk sweetness to it, some roasted malts, quite smooth.   Clean finish.   Moderate to full bodied, smooth mouthfeel.   Was a little difficult when it was colder, but as it warms it seems to mellow a bit.   Enjoyable, even if a bit over the top in regards to its smokiness.   I can appreciate this one even tho the style doesnt do much for me.   Thanks Nick for the bottles!
