What Foie should taste like?

I have never been too interested in trying Foie. It has never appealed to my foodie side when there are things on the menu I already like. The other evening my hubbie decided to order a dish with foie. I tried it and must say I don't get the appeal (nor did he). The texture was like seared gelatin. The flavor was quite rich, a mixture of beefiness and game. I am as much about texture as flavor and this time texture tipped the scale to "no thank you!".

So my question is- how would you describe this delicacy to someone thats never had it... is my interpretation accurate to most experiences? (if so I would prob only order it in a sauce for added richness).
