Barely drinkable, gasoline-like
I'm usually not a fan of coffee inside of other drinks, but this tasted like dessert. Very sweet but very easy to drink, felt like I was barely even drinking rum but it didn't stop me from finishing off a bottle
Take a bad batch of kraken and add old, super acidic coffee to it. Very difficult to sip. It is black and stains your teeth quickly. Failed experiment.
I've never dumped a bottle down the drain, NEVER! Until today, I tried to drink this stuff, tried to use it in mixed drinks. It's aweful, way too sweet. I think they use some kind of die for the coloring and it stained my floor. I'm not going to bother going into the color/nose/taste. This stuff is trash and a waste of money.
I tried to give it away and I couldn't.
Kraken has been one of the favorite dark rums for the average rum buyer. Great packaging, great ad campaign etc. This stuff, I’m not sure it is rum at all. Way too sweet, not a good coffee flavor and not a good rum flavor. I think this was the bottom of the barrel stuff they were trying to get rid of. I was going to buy a bottle as a gift, bu thought I would test taste it first. Glad I didn’t buy 2. I’ve never poured out a bottle of rum I didn’t like, this may be the first.
What a vile liquid is Kraken Black Roast. Childish bottle and label design. Almost black color, like stale cold overnight coffee. Super strong coffee bean mixed with nasty unaged alcohol to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Very harsh burn at the end. Down the drain it goes.
