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.

Ugh, that is nasty. We don’t need to drink any more of this. Pour it out. I don’t need this kind of calories.

northropfrye (3330) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 6, 2016
Black body, off-white head, no retention, not much lacing. Faint sweet grainy aroma. Lots of almost-gross cloyingly sweet flavour, dried fruit, sugar, caramel, cola, anise. Medium palate. Unbalanced.

ruigo (2476) - PORTUGAL - NOV 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear amber with tan head. Sweet malts, caramel and licorice in the aroma. Taste is sweet. Overall, too sweet.

Gehbe (297) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - NOV 14, 2016
Clear brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, yeast, baguette crust, toast, hints of spice and vinegar. Taste is rather sweet, balanced by increased sourness (no bitterness). Medium body, low to medium carbonation, light stickiness on finish. Sort of a darker/maltier version of Rodenbach. Nothing spectacular, but somewhat underrated.

PintjeFritz (220) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2016
No detail information about the hops, malts or drinktemperature on the labels. Black with light red beer with short cappuccino head, smell is industrial, sweet is dominated, light malty, very short finish, no character, no Schwarzbier, (I have 0.33l bottle with best-before 09.2017 and batch L01K60139) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maracuja05 (820) - Mainz, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2016
16-10-16 // bottle. Pours a brown black beer, small white head. Taste is super sweet. Syrup-like. Light roasted malts. Not good. The list of ingredients sucks.

DuffMan (9645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle, sampled at Medicine Hat Beerfest 2016. Medium amber brown, thin beige head. Gross cola and caramel, thin and syrupy-sweet. Gross.

McSherman (585) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2016
Die Zutatenliste schreckt zunächst einmal ab. Dennoch will das Bier probiert werden. Im Glas zeigt sich ein tiefdunkel rot schimmerndes fast schwarzes klares Bier fast ohne Schaum. Geschmacklich erinnert es leider nur entfernt an ein Bier, am ehesten noch an ein viel zu süßes aber körperloses Porter. Insgesamt wirkt es eher wie ein künstliches Biermischgetränk.

UXO (1589) - CANADA - SEP 24, 2016
Appearance: clear amber-brown with one finger of rocky beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, coffee, cola, liquorice. (4/10) Taste: high sweet, mild bitter. (3/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, sweet and sticky finish. (2/5) The first sip is shockingly sweet. After the initial shock wears off, it’s still sweet, but some other flavour starts to become apparent. It’s like liquorice dissolved in cola, and way too sweet for me to finish. Might be some folks’ cup of tea - folks who take six sugars in their tea, maybe - but not mine. Sink pour. (7/20)

kwas (6) - Bochum, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2016 does not count
Says "schwarzbier" on its label. Definitely not. Neither the sweet malty version as of Krusowice, nor the roasted malt "regular" version. Tastes much more like a (sweet) Porter, ie. way too sweet. Has a slight bitter aftertaste. It’s good if you like the sweet porter brewing style, got a sweet tooth or are into cola beer mixes / Radler, but anybody else is prolly gonna be shocked or even disgusted.
