Actually, it makes a FABULOUS float with vanilla ice cream. I want to try it with coffee-flavored ice cream some time in the future. I think a marinade is also a really great idea.

I tried this a while ago, and I thought it was really tasty. Too bad it's so expensive! I definitely recommend trying it over ice cream before you make final judgements!

I tried it a while back & really liked it. I was thinking it had a chocolaty aftertaste, but brickman, you are correct, it was an odd caramel taste. Beause of the price, it'll be a special treat once in a while.

it's not bad

The coffee flavour actually compliments the cola flavour. It has to be very cold in order for it to actually taste crisp. I could easily see mixing it with vanilla vodka for a new type of black russian.

I got to try it for free because my coke vendor brought me samples. I've seen it in the supermarket for five bucks for a 4 pack.

gosh, coke makes so many mistakes but still rakes in the $. Black coke sounds terrifying and I wouldn't trust it.

The black Russian thingy sounds like a winner tho'. Thanks VeraBlue!

There is no reason to be terrified unless you have an exceptionally closed mind. Try opening your mind to new ideas. Black Coke sure is not going to kill you. It won't even hurt you. At most you may just not like it, but you will never know unless you open your mind to new things.

nah

But I will be mixing my brandy with it for the fun of it. Coke has disappointed me too many times in the past but we drink Diet Coke around here like it was water to the detriment of our kidneys.

an acquired taste

I'll admit the first bottle I tried was tough, and the strange part was that it tasted oddly familiar to me. Gave it a second chance and ended up liking the flavor...and I appreciate Coca Cola Company trying something totally unique. Found coupons for $0.60 cents off and when Safeway "doubled" the coupon, I scored a bottle of Blak for about $0.70 cents.
