Can you eat the little black berries this plant produces ?
The flowers smell so good I was wondering if the berries taste as good as the smell?

Although attractive, the berries are not considered edible. I cannot find any specifics for their being considered poisonous, but neither can I find any indication they are edible. I'd refrain from eating them and simply enjoy seeing them in the garden.
