Delicious and Sneaky

An excellent sauce. Trying it straight:
Sweet maple, a touch of black garlic - a touch too subtle since it's in the name and is my only real complaint, the strong scent of serrano with its initial kick... and the insidious reaper.
This sauce, for me, was a sneaker. The heat at first was relatively mild and manageable but soon charged up to a powerful, eye-watering burn and stayed there through a couple of minutes of water sipping. A very decent punch, even when diluted on food.

Heat forward with a nice flavour

First off be warned, this is a very liquid hot sauce, so it is easy to pour out a lot more than intended. The heat in this one hits you right away, and then subsides to let the flavour through. Nice balance of good spice and a fairly short after burn, so you can go back for more pretty quickly. I like this on Asian dumplings and noodles - the spice and garlic marry well with the flavours of such dishes. Not sure I would repurchase, but fun and versatile nonetheless.


This sauce is very fragrant and inviting. It is hot but also very flavourful. The sweetness from the maple syrup and roasted garlic combined with the savoury black garlic, and the heat from the reapers, is just terrific and well-balanced. It almost tastes more like a fiery BBQ sauce that would be perfectly at home brushed on pork tenderloin or a grilled chop. Though the consistency is a little thinner than I would have liked, it is still an absolute winner.

Current favorite

This stuff is so good, I can't describe properly.. will be buying this one again for sure.

Hot Sauce with Potential

I found this sauce would be much nicer if a little thicker. I prefer sauces with a less vinegar but that's a personal preference.
The heat profile is highly influenced by the vinegar which tends to bring the heat more forward on the palette towards the mid tongue as opposed to the normal for some super hots to appear near the back or even like the ghost to only really kick in as a body heat further down.
I found the garlic flavor to be more subdued than expected which was a little disappointing.
The Maple syrup was almost completely overwhelmed and although I was not looking for a sweet sauce, it would have been nice to have a hint of maple sweetness to compliment the intensity of the heat & spread it's profile.
Overall a nice sauce that has potential to be much with some tweaking.
