COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

50 cl can from monoprix. Cool all black can with black top and tab. Doesn’t really smell like much more than fake bourbon mixed with Kanterbrau. But at least it’s faint. Maroon color. Tastes sweet and watery, with the tiniest hint of coffee. Mainly it tastes like sugar water iced tea coffee or something. Maybe for southern yuppies.

Clear deep brown appearance, medium low head. Malty and caramel aroma, very sweet taste, not much bitterness. Poor palate, slightly unbalanced. Overall mediocre.

Renobob (576) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 16, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Arômes fruités, caramel mal équilibrés. Beaucoup trop sucrée, aucune longueur en bouche. Beurk !

RichardGretton (4228) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle@Strasbourg. Blackish beer with a reddish tinge and a strong head. The aroma is yeasty with some weak maltiness. The flavour is malty with some roastedness and yeastiness. Overall a reasonable malty dark beer, better than the ratings suggest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml can (Rimi in the wilds, Tallinn) - good find, Marduk!
Smells like hard water. Later, after Ive tasted it, I get sweetness and cocoa powder too. Taste pretty messy sweetness, cheap chocolate. Smooth palate. Finish sweet, a little sticky. Shame, it looked decent, a nice deep red, beige head. Way too sweet. That does help keep the alcohol down.

500ml can. Dark brown color. Small size, brown head, stays. Caramel, roast, dusty and touch of shit in aroma. Sweet, chocolate, milky, nesquick chocopops in taste. Strong cocoa in aftertaste. Light body, almost watery.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Bio shouldn’t say horrible taste. Wasn’t able to finish this beer. Didn’t know it was possible to have a so bad taste. Not a good one.

bartlebier (1555) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
50cl can, somewhere in Reims 2013. Pours a watery, sticky deep prune-brown. Some fruit syrup in the nose, laying down the flavour base. Diluted burnt caramel and anonymous but noticeable hop presence. All of this sounds less than enticing, but it’s still less hideous than anticipated for a French macro Schwarz/black lager and actually quite drinkable: was able to finish 35cl of this. Now, to call this black sticky unicorne "Saveur de l’année 2013" is another thing...

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 1, 2014
Brown body and stable yet frothy off white head. Very simplistic aroma, light malts, not very roasted at all, not much character, sweet. Definitely sweet in the taste. It’s something different than the Stella and Leffe Blond that was offered, but sure is it cloying and poorly made. (On tap at Paradis pool bar Tours)
