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.

tourette (225) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Campfire smoky beer. Rich mollasses and burnt wood flavors. Just a hint of bacon, but fortunately not too much. I like this much better than German Rauchbiers.

stevoj (5440) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 31, 2017
22oz Bottle on the RBSG bus tour. Dark brown, opaque, small tan head. Smokey, ashy aroma. Taste reflects the smoked malts, campfire, ashtray, tobacco. Dry finish with small bitter bite

hayduke (5616) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle share at the RBSG 2017 in Boise. Pours dark black with a tan head. Nose is heavily smoked malts. Medium body. Flavor is a ton of smoke and chocolate and coffee. Finishes somewhat dry and bitter. Superb.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a very dark brown color - almost black - with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was bacon and toasty malts. The flavor was sweetish, toasty and woody with notes of bacon and bread crust. Long finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.8

Bottled. Small sample. The aroma has roast, peat. Black coloured beer with a medium sized, beige head. The taste is moderate bitter, roasty with peat and bacon. Medium-full bodied beer. Nice.

derA (91) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 20, 2017
tap @ tucson hop shop: I don’t often rate beers with this many ratings but this is quite special. I have been fortunate enough to taste quite a few of the top 50 smoked from Germany, all of which were excellent examples of German Rauchbiere in their various forms. However, this Left Hand is quite a different beast. The nose could almost fool one into thinking that there is a German Bock with ample smoked malt hiding in the glass but with the addition of some charred wood. The taste, however, is quite different. This is very close some sweet stouts with maltose in its perceived sweetness but manages to carry over a lightness all the way into the finish which leaves me with a mix of caramel, charred wood, oak smoke and a general desire to go sit by a fire somewhere outside. This comes together very well for me but in a different way than expected.

Sampler at Growler USA. Dark brown. Intense smoke up front, then sweet malt taste and finish.
