Dear William: I’ve had two different dbols before, and both pills tasted very bitter. I have a new one that tastes very different, kind of bland. Did I get a fake? Does Dianabol taste bitter?
A: I’ve heard different “taste testing” strategies for identifying steroids before. I must confess that I’ve never given the concept a great deal of time. That is to say, I have never made any systematic examination of the different tastes of pure steroid chemicals, so I’d have little reference point to start from when it comes to evaluating their tastes as part of a blended compound. I can give you this little bit of information, however, which will hopefully put the whole thing into perspective. Dianabol usually comes as a 5mg tablet, meaning there are 5 milligrams of active drug in it. A typical tablet contains a whole lot more material than 5 milligrams. In fact, it is likely to contain 20 times that amount or more in the form if different binders, fillers, and perhaps coloring agents. Any combination of these materials may have different properties when it comes to taste. It is highly unlikely that even the most trained taste buds will be able to notice such a tiny amount of Dianabol next to an abundance (and variety) of other materials. In my opinion, this just isn’t a viable option for determining if you have a real drug or not. You are much better off examining the packaging of the product very closely, and comparing it to known legitimate products. You should make much more progress here. If you are buying an underground item, however, you are kind of on your own without some type of lab analysis.
