In a spout of curiosity, I ordered a gram of 5-MeO-DALT online from a website that I'd been using to get basic uppers, 2/4-fa. It was less than $40 so when I got it, I wasn't expecting too much. In the bag it was a very fine white powder, no chunks. It looked exactly like flour. I decided it would be best to take this in a safe environment instead of going out and seeing what would happen. That turned out to be the best idea. I can't vouch for the purity or the exact content of what was actually in the bag, but just have this experience.
I had gone out drinking for the first time in about a month with my girlfriend and two close friends (one who I had not seen in over a year). The drinking got kind of boring and we got back to my apartment around 1AM. Only my girlfriend knew I had this stuff but I figured I'd break it out and see if anyone wanted to give it a whirl.
After a couple more beers, I brought it out. My girlfriend wasn't happy about this and went to bed while the three of us stayed upstairs (the first setback). The other two were not very experienced drug users and were also curious about the substance. I told them after reading about it that I really didn't know what it did and it would just be a ride, or nothing and we would go to sleep.
I eyeballed (bad idea by the way) what I figured was a little less than 200mg which was still quite a high dose into three capsules and all took them around 3. One of my friends, probably the drunkest of us, said he figured it was definitely flour and he didn't think much of it. In fact, he forgot that he took it about 30 minutes later and asked where his capsule was.
This led to me looking around for it, which is when I started to feel some effects. I was a bit uneasy, not in a panic sort of way, but just a bit tense considering it was really late and I wasn't sure what we had just taken.

Shortly after I started looking, my friend was lying in his chair with his eyes closed and he decided that he 'definitely took it.'
We were sort of sitting in a circle trying to be quiet because of my girlfriend so the whole experience was a little bit hindered by that and the fact it was so late and we wanted to be at least somewhat functional the next day. After 45 minutes I realized we had ingested something pretty potent. We were looking at each other with sort of 'uh oh, ha ha' looks as the drug kicked in.
It was a little speedy, but made us all feel very heavy and a little uneasy. Soon I started feeling exactly like I had just hit a bong a few times. We were very high, and soon my female friend decided she wanted to go try to get some sleep on the couch (around 4:30). Me and my other friend stayed up and the whole experience, we decided, was much akin to taking some adderall and smoking a lot of weed.
There was none of the amphetamine induced euphoria though. We couldn't stop grinning, but we weren't having an amazing time or anything. We started listening to music (Pretty Lights mostly) and it felt like I was getting in a hot tub but I wasn't quite ready for the heat so I kept tipping my toe in. I couldn't embrace this, whatever it was.
I was a bit worried I had put my friends in a bad situation, but we did enjoy watching the itunes visualizer and joking about things for a while, until the sun started coming up. At that point, I went to bed with my girlfriend and got to sleep rather easily.
When I woke up the next day, I felt very 'blurry', things didn't seem quite the same but it wasn't miserable. My other two friends however refused to be woken up. They slept until almost 5PM that day, and the guy looked like a mess when he woke up. No color in his skin, he was sweating a lot. I gave him some aspirin, vitamins and water and he looked better later on but kept sleeping.
The fatigue continued until the next day and I'd say I didn't completely clear up until about 60 hours after ingesting the stuff.
I never had any deep realizations or particularly memorable moments. It was just a weird experience, and a little bit frightening to see how my friends reacted to it. In retrospect, I would have preferred taking this without my girlfriend around and with more experienced psychonauts.
I can't recommend this with much confidence. I suppose a smaller dose earlier in the day would have been somewhat enjoyable. My advice is take it easy with this stuff and don't plan on being high-functioning for a while if you do take it. It's definitely not flour.
