Default Do you like black licorice?

I can generally see somebody liking a flavor I don't care for. Not black licorice though. I just don't get it. It's the worst flavor I can think of. I just saw a licorice flavored beer recipe and I threw up a little in my mouth. Somewhere, Satan is laughing his arse off that some people like his joke candy.

Do you like it?

Not only that but I love Black Salt Licorice.

I suppose I should add....I HATE those black jelly beans. That's not real licorice anyway. I do like Anise and Fennel, but Licorice Root is far different.

I think it's a love/hate thing. No one says, "oh, licorace is ok." You either love it or hate it.

I hate the disgusting stuff.

It's a singular, dominant taste when you eat them.

There are almost no flavors (other than unnatural, etc) that I don't like.

This has to be true. It isn't a flavor that sits around in the background not bothering anybody. It tastes like a chemical spill.

No one here....

I can eat it and enjoy it but, I don't crave it. I used to like the BlackJack gum but grew out of it I suppose (not much of a gum chewer these days).

It's okay, but I don't see a place for it in beer. As an apertiff, okay. In candy, great. In beer, blech!

I suppose my Licorice Stout doesn't sound good to you then?

No sir, it definitely does not but, I do hope it works out for you and what is left of your tastebuds afterwards.

lolz. Well, most of my 'flavored' beers are just at or practically below the recognition threshold. This is no exception. I can't wait to put it on tap .
