There is not any actual coffee in it and the size is smaller than a regular 12oz can so there is probably (although I have not checked) less caffeine than a regular coke.

Here is a site to it. http://www.coca-colablak.com/us/index.jsp

to the right of the bottle, there is the nutritional facts. Only 45 calories, not bad, I guess.

Hello all!

Finally got around to trying the new Coke Blak this afternoon. I co-worker told me of a local "Quick-Mart" that sells it cold by the single bottle, so I shelled out the 2 bucks

I started drinking it right there in the convenience store, because the clerk asked me to tell him what it was like!

I thought it was OK. Not great, not bad at all, just OK. Very different. Very corn-syrupy (as opposed to sugary), with a bit of an odd caramel aftertaste...the aftertaste sort of reminded me of the extra-crispy, dark parts you find on BBQ ribs, or if you REALLY over-toast a marshmallow. Not an unpleasant flavor, but not something I'd expect from a soft drink (or from a "hard" drink, for that matter!).

I'd buy the stuff again if it were significantly cheaper. It also occurred to me that it might work really well as an ingredient in a marinade for brisket (or possibly beef ribs, or venison).

My 2 cents!

I believe you've hit on the only possible use for this stuff that I can imagine, brickman!

I've tried it; itís basically just carbonated coffee, with a hint of Coke. I wonder where they got this idea from. Maybe it started in another country. Who knows? I'd be interested to find out. The only drawback for me is the bottle is too small. I think it tastes decent, but I just want more of it for the money.

Did not care for it. I liked the flavor, didn't like the carbonation and the cola tweak in it.
The store here does have it in individual bottles for $1.09. They tend to break up the packages sometimes to see if it sells.

I was suprized to say that I fell in love with it at first sip. It was an undescribable yet great bitter-sweet flavor. ANd I don't even like Coke that much. But heads up, don't try making any yourself with your own coffee and coke. It WILL taste disgusting. Yes, I've tried.
