I have to say this. The bottle design is gorgeous. Very sleek. I haven't had the chance to try it yet though, is it very "coffee-ish"?

The classic bottle, the color, the contrast of the graphic. It's very contemporary, and mature to me, as compared to the explosion of color that alot of beverages seem to go with. Sometimes less is more. This bottle is an excellent example.

its better than "manhattan special" in my opinion
i was told though that the european version is a bit different, would love to try it.

Better then Manhattan special???? I think itÂ’s time for you to turn your membership and move out of New York. Maybe to Atlanta. Next you are going to tell us Chicago pizza is better then NY pizza.

For shame for shame.

You guys think its good? I guess I'll try it. Im more for energy drinks though.

I actually got to try one of these over the weekend, and I must say it did not live up to the marketing hype. Overall the mixture tasted burnt to me, and the aftertaste was quite unpleasant.

I will be really surprised if this enjoys any mainstream popularity. Too bad, too. I was really hoping this would be good.

I don't like it because I dont like coffee, or regualar coke (I drink Diet), but my wife, sister in-laws, mother in-law and my father love that drink. They say you have to sip it to get the full flavor.

Also not much of a coffee drinker here, but saw it on campus, of course curious I bought it, it had a decent taste for me not liking coffee. Gotta aftertaste that's a lil unpleasant and has aspartame which causes me not to buy it again =/

I guess this isn't selling well. The local Sunnoco station was selling this two for three dollars.

I actually like Coke Blak, but when I had these bottles at the end it was a bit wattery at the end, like a Full Throttle Fury I had a while back.

Last weekend while shopping at our beloved Woodmans,home of a mega large beverage section and selection. I found Coke black at the corner of the coffee section. There was a case and a half of tattered looking bottles laying on the floor. It did not look merchandised for sale. It looked like a remident of a failed product.

It was very said to see this. I wounder how many sales this haphazard pile of Coke Blac generates. My guess is little if any. What a poor state of affairs if this neglect is market wide.

Here's my basic progress with Coke Blak:

1st bottle: Yuck. But drinkable.

2-3rd bottle: Oddly appealing

4-6th bottle: Unique and decent

7th: Harder to drink

8th: Wow, this stuff is impossible to finish, not something you can just grab and sip whenever. I doubt I'll get one for a long time.

The stuff moves off the shelves here like a snail, too. People aren't buying into it.
