I am a big Coke fan and when I heard that Coke Blak was coming out I was fairly excited. Coffee and coke together?, yeah it sounds weird but I was willing to give it a try. After about a month of waiting I finally scored some today.
I tried it when it was ice cold- once your done looking at the cool label and cute bottle the first thing that hits you is the smell. The aroma is vaguely coffee, vaguely chocolaty and vaguely burnt sugar. You would think that would be a good thing but all together the effect is like a tiramisu/creme brulee from hell.
The mouth feel is that of almost flat Coke- I like almost flat Coke so I considered that to be a fairly good thing. Flavor wise it starts out with a sharp coffee/tootsie pop flavor, mellows into a taste best described as chocolate tootsie pop and finishes like a Coke left overnight besides the bed that spent hours getting direct sunlight before you drank from it again (uh, not that I have ever done that or anything...) The aftertaste is what I can only imagine the breath of Satan himself is like.
I feel safe to say this is probably going to go the way of New Coke (only I would hope less embarrassing) .
