I am not a Potterhead nor do I try to attempt all things Potter into my world. Instead when I came across this particular drink I was more driven by curiousity in seeing how butter beer may taste. True the actual drink spoken of in the book may and probably does taste a lot differently than what we have but it was an attempt. The drink basically tasted like butterscotch, which was of course the flavoring. I don't know, though, if it wouldn't have been so cloyingly sweet if I had had it chilled instead of drinking it hot. In the end it was okay and decent but not a drink I would think of having daily.
