just professional. the facts little else. but if you enjoy the brand the black label is striking and it foreshadows the smoky notes of the sauce
dark dark green, has a little black to it.
here is where the smoke starts
truly peppery, then smoky. There is little doubt then heat is there but the dynamic layers of flavor offer more than just heat. smoky, fruity and hot.
again you can tell this sauce starts and ends with habanero!
absolutely my favorite complex hot sauce. the brands green sauce is my every day go-to

Black, almost charcoal colour, fairly runny so pours easily
Unique, very smoky habanero smell
Unlike any other habanero sauce, it has a charred, smoky almost acrid flavour from the roasted peppers. This is a sauce that likes strong meats and cheeses, it doesn't taste good straight off the spoon but team it with some brisket or a cheeseburger and it suddenly comes into its own. There is no sweetness whatsoever.
It's got some heat alright, the manufacturer claims 10K SHU which puts it just behind the brown XXX sauce. As usual with Habanero peppers the heat is almost immediate
A very unique smoky Habanero sauce which won't be everybody's cup of tea, but for certain applications it's without equal.
