Licorne Black est une bière brune brassée par la Brasserie Licorne de Saverne. Dès la première gorgée, ses arômes se révèlent fruités et enrichis d’une délicate amertume. Au fil de sa dégustation, elle révèle progressivement des notes de café et de caramel au goût légèrement fumé, faisant de Licorne Black une bière chaleureuse et douce.

Well, first I have to admit that this rating is not really reflecting the Licorne Black which to me is a far too sweet malt drink... The one I describe and rate here is a Licorne Black that remained in my cellar for over 2 years and is now 2 years over date... So let’s have a look if it get this stuff any better (or not)... The nose is much less sweet, offers nice hints of dried fruit (mainly figues) and some unpleasent fruity esthers. Marzipan rounds it up. My hope that the massive sugar bomb would have been reduced comes true, but still this beer stays so sweet, unbelievable. The malty notes come out better, a slight port idea shines through and the marzipan flavor reigns the finish. The beer is nearly flat now and the body is heavier. Still it’s not the best beer, but better than it was... Still can’t stand the amount of sweetness...

Mom brought this one back from a trip to France. +++ Sampled from a 500 ml can this beer poured a very dark brown color - almost black - with orange highlights and a large creamy-soapy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish, malty and toasty with anise, dark fruit, malted milk and cream. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. Meh.

Bottle @ home. Nice dark red to red-brown color, medium to full sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, some sweetness, a bit metallic, some hint of caramel and brown sugar. Average body and carbonation. Meh, don’t really like it.

Très décevant. Malgré le nom qui suggère une stout, la bière n’est que brune foncée. On ne goûte pas (ou trop peu) de malt torrefié tel que le chocolate. Beaucoup trop sucré et généralement dans caractère.

When I read Saverne, lots of nice memories of this mice alsacian town came back to me. The beer not lives up to its name giver. Bkack, very sweet could be a malzbier for children

Very sweet black beer, no evidence of any roast grains. Mouthfeel is light/watery, not much lingering aftertaste. Sugar taste too.
