It tastes just like drinking black licorice, but it numbs your whole mouth, so technically it tastes better - or less - the more you have in an evening. It's definitely a sipping kind of beverage, but it produces a very clear kind of intoxication, at least compared to other sorts of alcohol. It's definitely a unique substance, highly recommended.
Though I am sure it tastes like utter garbage after its had a few bowls run through it. I wouldn't know as I am pretty sure smoking through alcohol is considered huffing of sorts, and I kind of like the ability to regenerate my brain cells after a certain amount of time, thank you.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
