Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce (Tesco) By @SpectreUK

Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce

I have always been a big fan of barbecue sauce. I usually have it on my chips and dunk whatever burger I have in it for a greedy bump up of sauce. This new Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce sounded like a new regular treat. I have liked all other Guinness snack products that I have tried in the past, especially Guinness crisps. It states on the bottle that this BBQ Sauce is packed full of sweet, smokiness with a Guinness flavour. So, I should love this Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce.

I decided to try this Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce with a beef burger and chips, traditional style, with a little salad on the thick burger, and chunky baked chips. It did warn on the bottle that this BBQ Sauce was thick in texture. It certainly was, thick and a little gloopy once I'd managed to squeeze some out of the bottle. It's fortunate I have a strong right hand (enough said about that the better). On taste, whatever I dunked into this almost black gloopy sauce tasted okay, but didn't have the promised "oomph" on the front of the bottle.

This Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce tasted almost in the middle of a pint of Guinness split on a plate of burger and chips and barbecue sauce during a bar fight. It wasn't unpleasant, but it wasn't necessary either. I was really surprised that I didn't like this sauce, as I love Guinness, especially washing down a good steak and chips. There wasn't so much sweetness or smokiness, or Guinness, just a mishmash of all three that didn't complement what I was eating at the time. I don't like writing negative reviews, but I'm afraid this Guinness Smoky BBQ Sauce was just not for me.
