Yes, they taste just like they smell. They aren't too bad at first bite but the aftertaste is like a bad medicine you have to endure.
I'm somewhat afraid to say this very controversial opinion... But I like brussel sprouts.
Have you ever tried them baked? I don't know the recipe that was used when I had them last, but they're baked with a generous helping of some sort of oil topping.
Baked vegetables in general are almost always superior to boiled or steamed vegetables IMO. Baked or grilled. And I'm not even a vegetable guy.
