I'm picky with stouts, but I did not hesitate when I read Sricha. I was not disappointed at all!
The bottle looks exactly like a bottle of Sracha without the worry of trademark infringement of course. But you know what flavor it is when you see the bottle. Inside the bottle, the color is black, so that was a little bit of a shock.
When I poured the beer in a glass, it was not red. It was dark and reminded me more of molasses than hot sauce. It has a light brown head on it that fades quick after pouring. It smells like a strong stout despite only having an alcohol content of 5.7%. It smells like chili with chocolate.
It tastes exactly like chile without being overpowering like many stouts in general are. The aftertaste is light and chocolate/coffee. It goes down real well unless of course you do not like chiles.
