I don't know if I've had the legit stuff with the wormwood or whatever (I probably didn't) but it was 70 something ABV, and it tasted like black licorice to me. I was already pretty drunk so I didn't notice anything different than the alcohol effect. I only had a tiny bit though because it was my friend's and it was a small bottle (or more like a vial). One of my friends took a big rip of it and vomited immediately, but he was probably already fucked up.
I'm curious to try it too in larger quantities myself.
