    Label:

    I'm giving the label design a zero for shockingly offensive, racially-charged logo.

    Looks:

    The sauce is uniform in texture, with a very fine grain. It's thick, almost paste-like, and has an attractive russett color.

    Aroma:

    The aroma is smoky and a touch vinegary, with the antiseptic smell of fiery chili peppers lurking beneath.

    Taste:

    The taste is, again, roasty and smoky, with an almost-immediate hit of spice that is (to my tastes) quite formidable. The heat dissipates quickly, leaving a savory allium aftertaste.

    Heat:

    Though it doesn't compare to the monstrous, Island-of-Dr-Moreau chili peppers that mad scientists cook up these days, it is still pretty impressive. The burn sets in quickly, but is short-lived.

    Overall:

    A thoroughly enjoyable, smoky hot sauce that far surpasses most others I have tried. You should try to find this sauce and buy it and put it on tacos .
