It's an acquired taste. Or not. I can't wrap my brain around Jaegermeister.

While my family was still coming to this country in the late 1920's through the late 1950's from Germany ... Jagermeister was a main family beverage with the older folks.
I still like it a lot.

Has anyone here ever had something called Underberg?

Underberg tastes very much like Jagermeister but is 90*proof and has no sweetness at all (if you can imagine that). When I was a kid we used to call it "German truth serum" because if you claimed you had a stomach ache and could not go to school you were probably going to have to suffer through a dose of either Underberg or Paregoric ... both equally horrible at the time.

Now, Underberg is one of my very favorite aperitifs. How tastes change.

Same here.

Sometimes, I can convince myself that I both like and appreciate the complex flavor.

Other times, I am convinced that I'm drinking a cocktail of harsh industrial chemical solvents.

one part whiskey
1/2 sweet vermouth
4-5 drops of bitter
over rocks

if i'm going to drink anything besides beer, it's usually a Caesar in the summer with Clamato juice!
