This is more subtle than the dos version, it’s more smooth with the spice more in the background. It’s brings a great balance between malts, wood and hops. Also has a cola taste

A- pours a clear caramel amber with faint head that disappears quickly. No lacing
S- coffee, dirt, wood and bourbon are pungent. Slight smoke and malts and astringent as well
M- relatively light for a barrel aged beer. Medium palate and body with weak stickiness and mild carbonation.
T- coffee, toffee and malts up front with a strong warming bourbon that comes in the middle and intensifies as it warms. Ending is bitter alcohol and mineral water that is solid but does not overstay its welcome.

The hype of the Osos beers doesn’t match the beer. No head at all. This has a fairly strong coffee to the aroma. Little coffee in the flavor, but the weirdness of the tequila is noticeable. Not that great.

Draft at the brewery. Clear dark amber brown, with an off white head. Lots of bourbon flavor, toasted bread, caramel, and vanilla. Not very strong, and the body is thinner than normal for a BA beer, but not a bad thing. I thought that it was enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at brewery. Medium amber color with some hazyness and tan foam. Aroma is bourbon with coconut and vanilla followed by light roasted malt and perhaps some coffee. Taste is bourbon up front followed by roasted malt and a thin sweetness. Clean mouthfeel but the flavors are a bit disjointed in presentation. Worth a try.

On Tap at River Rock Tap House in Sacramento as part of Sacramento Beer Week. Not overly boozy for a bourbon barrel aged. Still, I don’t like the style at all. I prefer my beer to taste like beer (or sometimes wine) and my bourbon to taste like bourbon.
River Rock described it as "the rarest beer from Mammoth Brewing on tap tonight! We have the Tres Oso’s bourbon aged stong dark ale."
