Guinness has released a new stout-flavoured sauce that they hope will rival more traditional barbecue condiments such as ketchup and 'brown sauce'.

The stout manufacturers spent over two years coming up with the formula for the newly launched Guinness sauce.

The release promises to fill the void for fans left devastated after the Guinness flavour of HP Brown Sauce was discontinued in 2013.

The formula mixes a blend of spices and herbs with Guinness, and each bottle contains around seven percent alcohol.

The Irish brand says that the sauce is "specifically made to enjoy with meats" and has launched it right in time for summer barbecue season.

"Guinness has a strong history of being used as a unique ingredient in food as it delivers a great taste experience like nothing else," a spokesman noted.

"Today in restaurants, bars and homes around the world Guinness is used in cooking. We have developed Guinness sauce so that consumers can enjoy the great taste experience of Guinness in a wonderful, premium sauce that is versatile and convenient," he added.

And why stop at dousing your dinner in Guinness - fans of the black stuff can also get their hands of stout-flavoured fudge, chocolate and other confectionary.
