Absinthe tastes like if black liquorice could beat your throat with alocohol and fire....pouring it over sugar helps alot, but I've ended up drinking milk afterwards to 'calm the beast'.
Btw, it doesn't make you trip or anything...it's just a slightly different kind of buzz. Movies showing people getting all weird from wormwood(Absinthe's catalyst or whatever you call it) usually neglect to mention that those dudes were big opium users too.
And I would love to brew my own beer, but my house is very tiny....and cram full of our crap (not literally speaking of course).
My sister and her husband tried making Saki one year....
The procedure involves raisins which float to the surface of the urn at some point in the fermentation (ugh) process....
Her husband scooped the raisins out of the urn and threw them into their back yard. She phoned me to drive over to her house to see all the birds lined up on the fence stunned from a raisin drunk I guess .....lasted for hours poor things.... (or was it the rice? can't remember)
I don't get hangovers unless I drink something that's sweet. Chocolate martini's? Worst. Hangover. Ever.

Anyone ever tried absinthe? Always wondered what it tasted like.
So far I like the taste of real rye, real potato vodka, a few rums but mostly Appleton's, various beers but not many ales, gin, and some liqueurs like the ones tasting like licorice, Irish cream, ones that taste like oranges and lemons, creme de menthe and peppermint schnapps, and some wines particularly Rieslings.
I've wanted to make my own beers but never got around to collecting the carboys and whatnot.
