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.

Pours thick and black w/ super full semi creamy froth. Aromas are deeply roasted, smokey sweet malts w/ cigar box and citrusy scents. Like a pine forest ablaze. Full nectar w/ very soft residual effers creating an oily texture. This is one heavily smoked porter. Heavy malt backbone like molasses. Sweet maple, roasted espresso bean, smoked jerkey, cocoa, old leather, and citrus rind. The finish is long and lingering w/ a perfect bittering from the hops that finally kick in. As this brew warms it really starts to balance out. The oily texture turn to velvet and the molasses mellows to brown sugar. Drinks better cool not cold. A killer brew none the less. I scored this perfect classic because of it’s duality. You get two brews in one. The cold version and the cool version (after it’s warmed a bit). It would be so easy for a brew of this decandent nature to get lost in itself showing a narrow, straightforward character. But this one pulls it off and really hams up it’s inherent complexities. Connoisseurs Choice! Highly Recommended. Get it while you can.

Pours dark, dark, dark brown with a large sudsy tan head. Smells of smoke, hints of chocolate, and roast. Taste is smoky, with a distinct roasted character and hints of sweetness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Left Hand SmokeJumper finishes with a full smoked roundness.

everything i hoped it would be. The bottle looks amazing, and it smells like a spicy campfire. The taste is phenomenal...slightly bitter, spice, loots of smoke (but not too much), toasted nuts, and a touch of chocolate. Its the perfect BBQ or pizza beer. If youre a dark stout/porter fan this is a MUST!
