The Look: The look of Bing Black is very similar to the original Bing. The colors have been inverted so the can is primarily black with red and gold lettering. For me this color scheme works very well and is very pleasant to the eye. On the back of can you will find the supplement facts and warning label (with the caffeine content clearly listed).

Taste: Bing set the bar high with their original drink so I had very high hopes for Bing Black. I have never had a blackberry flavored energy drink that I can remember so I was not sure what to expect. When I took the first sip I was greeted with the taste of actual blackberries (guessing this is due to the 5% juice that is added) and a good amount of carbonation. Just like the original Bing, Bing Black scores very well in the taste department.

Does It Work: Each can of Bing Black is powered by 122 mg of caffeine, 8 grams of sugar, vitamin C, several B vitamins, ginkgo biloba, ginseng root extract, beta-glucan, guarana seed extract, acai berry extract, and flax seed extract. You get all this with only 40 calories and no high fructose corn syrup.
After drinking the 12 ounce can I got a very nice pick me up that lasted around 3 hours with no crash at all.

Overall Thoughts: With Bing Black, Bing has proven that they are not a "one trick pony". They took such a unique flavor like blackberry and made it work very well in an energy drink. The packaging looks fantastic and the kick is pretty solid as well. If you are looking for a low calorie, low carb drink that will get you moving, I highly recommend giving Bing Black a shot.
