Grouse, anyone?

Has anyone eaten grouse? I will have the opportunity to do so this fall when visiting London and am curious what to expect? Is it somewhat like a wild duck (dark meat, slightly gamey)?

    If grouse is hung properly, it tastes like armpit. Glorious, nuanced, puddingy armpit--alive!--but armpit nonetheless.

      In college days I used hunt birds weekends,roasting them and taking them back to college.--they were tough,stringy,and with some bird shot.Nothing beats those chickens on the rotissere at the deli!!!!!
