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.

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?

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 .
