Against the Grain Bo & Luke

What the brewers say

Rich and smoky with a bourbon character of caramel, vanilla, spice.

What our panel thought

Light whiskey aroma lingers. A blend of smoke and chocolate coat the tongue evenly. Some malt sweetness lingers in the background, providing a backbone to the smoked malt. Finishes on the sweeter side with pleas-ant dark-fruit notes.

What our editors thought

A tight and slightly smoky nose with brief glimpses of orange citrus segues into a bold body with rich but round wood notes and an enduring heft. Finishes with a lingering smoky note that’s angular but not harsh—a structured but not overbearing linger.
