Java Monster Cold Brew Sweet Black
Definitely the best canned cold brew that I've ever had. It's weird to describe a drinking experience as "fun", but the aerated creaminess of the drink is honestly a fun experience in itself.
I've been waiting for months to see this drink in the wild and it finally happened! DMV area seems like it usually lags behind the rest of the US in getting the new stuff, so hopefully it's already out and about in your area.
Really nice blend of bold coffee flavor and sweetness. I had to double check the sugar content because I was curious how much it had. It's fake sugar - sucralose - so unfortunately I can't tell exactly how sweetened it is, but it's at a fine line where I don't think it's very much.
The coffee flavor is distinct and delicious, and the first thing you notice on first sip is how aerated it is. Very light and creamy.
Black and yellowish gold isn't necessarily going to catch any eyes off a shelf, but I think the real Monster and energy drink fans will see this and do a double take. I like the quadrant on the front of the can detailing the roast, profile, origin, and strength. Really leaning into the coffee aspect of the drink.
200mg of caffeine, which long-time readers will know is my sweet spot. 0 sugar as mentioned above, with sucralose as the sugar replacement.
Gave me a nice and noticeable boost during my workday and no significant crash.
Definitely the best canned cold brew that I've ever had. It's weird to describe a drinking experience as "fun", but the aerated creaminess of the drink is honestly a fun experience in itself. I definitely recommend picking up a can and trying it out. I'm personally excited to try their other flavor - Cold Brew Latte - sometime soon.
