David asked Kevin J. Anderson:

In Unnatural Acts.. Dan drinks beer for the feeling of coolness and the suds in his mouth. His taste buds are mostly dead, but because he is obtaining free beer he continues drinking. Later, in the book, he tastes some coffee and describes it as tasting awful... If his taste buds are pretty much dead how does he taste the coffee?

Kevin J. Anderson His taste is diminished, not gone. And that was really bad coffee.
