REVIEW: Rockstar Limited Edition Samurai Cola

Rockstar Limited Edition Samurai Cola Can

What is Rockstar Limited Edition Samurai Cola?

A cherry cola-flavored energy drink that promotes the highly anticipated video game Cyberpunk 2077. It’s a game I will not play because I do not own a machine that can run it, and I’m still nauseous from playing DOOM back in the 90s.

How is it?

It tastes better than Cherry Coca-Cola Energy, which is an energy drink I found to be underwhelming. What’s disappointing about it is that it tastes more like an energy drink than a Cherry Coke. Okay, I imagine some of you are yelling at your screen something like, “Of course, it tastes that way! It’s. An. Energy. Drink.”

I get what you’re yelling, but here’s the thing, energy drink companies, like Rockstar and Monster, are now excellent at making their products not taste like energy drinks. They are using flavor and/or sugar to mask those bitter, energy-giving ingredients. And that’s what Rockstar did with its Samurai Cola, which has a strong, guarana-masking fruity flavor.

While I think it’s tasty and easy to drink, I’ll admit some folks might find the syrupy cherry flavor to be a bit too heavy, taking things into cough syrup territory, and the overall taste is a tad below Cherry Coke and Wild Cherry Pepsi.

Anything else you need to know?

240 milligrams of caffeine per can.

Conclusion:

With limited edition products, a question I ask myself is, “Would I want this to come back or be permanent?” My answer for Rockstar Limited Edition Samurai Cola is yes. I enjoyed it, and I feel we need more highly caffeinated colas in the world.

  1. How is the carbonation level? I don’t like any of the Coca-Cola “energy” products becauae the added taurine and guarana and whatever nonsense they throw in there with the caffeine give it a skunky flavor.

    As I recall, I liked the Rockstar cola okay back in the day. A little generic, Sam’s Club type taste, but not bad. I am going to give this *ahem* Samurai cola energy a try, but I worry about the cherry syrup flavoring. Heavier carbonation could mask that a bit, which is why I find Mountain Dew and Red Bull frustrating. They always come off flat with the light carbonation.

  2. I grabbed this the other day on whim and found myself enjoying it a lot more than expected.
    I rarely drink full sugar energy drinks so it’s possible I was just enjoying the sugar.

  3. “Also, T79HC628FHKL and K3928VH6N67X.”

    These appear to be keys but are invalid on either Steam or GOG.

    Were you being a lil sneaky and generous or what do these signify?
