We've teamed up with Neon Raptor to create this beer-bbq mash-up. A tangy bite, with rich malty notes and a gentle chilli heat. Made using Neon Raptor's Endangered, an American Porter matured with oak, bourbon and vanilla. Glaze onto ribs, pulled pork or anything smoky.
Tasting Notes (courtesy of The Crafty Aardvark):
Fairly dark chocolate brown colour. Smooth consistency with specks of spices. Thick but not as thick as most bbq sauces, this is a good thing (I'll explain later). Aroma is intense, seriously malty with a definite garlic and a slight tomato note. There's a sweetness and a nice oakey bourbon alongside an aged chilli and a spicy smokey aroma. Seriously awesome. Initially it's sweet with brown sugar and a touch of vanilla, caramel and tomato. The middle adds a seriously smokey edge with a deep malty flavour, lots of garlic, black pepper and a hint of salt. The finish has a nice chilli heat, the chilli has an aged taste, there's also a nice bourbon whisky.
I like sauces, bbq, chilli, chilli mayonnaise I'll eat most of them.
However this is by far the best bbq sauce I've ever had.
As I mentioned before it's not as thick as most bbq sauces, this is because it's not full of weird thickening agents or unnecessary ingredients.
The depth of flavour is intense, it swings between sweet, smokey, spicy, malty and hot.
The Endangered porter really shines through, as does the aged chilli.
I actually used it as a glaze on the beef brisket before slow cooking it for 4 hours, it added a superb sweet, malty stickyness.
