    Easily 5 stars! I ordered on a Monday and had it by Wednesday. This sauce is a FLAVOR GAME CHANGER! You don’t want to end up on the side of history that missed this sauce. Imagine mole’, heat, oatmeal stout, cacao, with little notes of ginger, lime, and layers of umami like miso just in the background. Hint of sweetness to balance it perfectly. The complexity is amazing, but it’s still gonna be a crowd pleaser. The heat it a 7, so it’s good cut with mayo or whatever base sauces/liquids/butters you are working with. Can still go straight in dabs on any meat or taco.

    Ok. So I’m critical. Sorry. But my god, when I taste just downright deliciousness, I’ll be the first (re: within the first 1000 people) to blow it up!! Chef, this stuff is INCREDIBLE! Depth of flavor so intense, I can’t wait to cook with it OR (I just had an idea!) make a badass Bloody Mary with it!! This will also play a key role in one of my upcoming barrel smokes. But I’ll tell you this – and I don’t mean this in any type of negative way towards anyone – but if you have even the slightest bit of wussy in you, just turn and start runnin’ now because one bottle cleaned my entire penny collection and THEN I ate it!!

    Seriously, this is a great sauce and I can’t wait to use it, finish it, buy more and repeat!! Thanks Chef!!

    Just bought a bottle over at the Anderson Valley Brewing Company’s tap room. Just had a few drops on my bbq pork sandwich. Deep smoky mole flavor. Lips and tongue are tingling a bit and the spiciness lingers. Good stuff!

    I have been enjoying this HS since it arrived, first with cheese (and crackers), and most recently in the sous vide pouch with Sansaire Steak Magic, liquid hickory, and a splash of BLiS hardwood soy. Delicious. In a shootout versus the rib without the HS – the flavor profile of the resultant rib was vastly more ‘full’ for having some mole sauce. It held up to 72 hours like a champ.

    I am a hot sauce guy. I put hot sauce on virtually everything I eat other than desert (I’m even one of those guys who puts the chili powder stuff on fresh fruit).
    My hot sauce shelf usually contains Tabasco, Sriracha and either Cholula or Tapatio. I don’t go for the “Crazy Hot” type hot sauce that is all heat and no flavor.
    I’ve already finished my first jar of Nor-Cal Mole. I’ve been putting it on eggs in the morning and with various veggies and meats at dinner. I find the earthy, smokey notes go especially well with lamb and it also perks up roasted veggies like brussels sprouts. It is hot enough to get my attention, but not so hot that you can’t appreciate the actual flavor of the sauce. I haven’t tried cooking with it yet, but I could imagine adding it to a rich, saucy dish like a stew or some braised meat.

    This is one bold hot sauce full of flavor! Eat Beer Hot Sauce is easily the most complex and flavorful hot sauce I have ever sampled. Initially this sauce packs a punch, but then the flavors of chocolate, citrus, fresh herbs and smooth oatmeal stout come through. I am a big believer in hot sauces should add flavor and not just heat. This sauce definitely adds flavor and just the right amount of heat for me. I have used this on beef, pork, chicken, eggs and any veggie you can imagine and it has not disappointed. Thank you Home Brew Chef and Humboldt Hotsauce for creating my new favorite hot sauce!! Well Done!!

    I could not be happier with the hot sauce!!!!!It is the perfect balanced sauce that can be utilized in a variety of ways. I use it to add flavor or as the star marinade. The complexity of the sauce gives any dish layers of flavor! Can not wait to put it on chicken wings this upcoming football season!!
    Thank you Home Brew Chef and Humbolt Hot Sauce for making a hot sauce that stands above the rest!!
