Bear Brewing Reaper Sauce
This hot sauce ticks the boxes on uniqueness in 2 ways. First it is black in colour, that's right, it is not the bottle that is black but the sauce. Second, it is a fermented hot sauce, not cooked, so delivers a very different flavour profile.
The black colour of this hot sauce comes from the activated charcoal and there is something about the colour, combined with the thickness of the sauce, that makes your mouth start to water as you pour it out of the bottle.
The capsicum and the chilli are definitely the heroes in this sauce and you can also taste the influence of the mustard and lime. The sauce has a certain rawness about it that is not unpleasant, just different, and is probably due to the fact that it is fermented and not cooked. The heat is not an up-front heat, but builds at the back of the throat and has a long lingering burn thanks to the Carolina Reaper.
For the wow factor alone this black hot sauce could go on everything! But we would recommend a nice thick-cut steak of beef.
