Dark Magic is for coffee drinkers searching for something bolder than the breakfast blends and flavored coffees ubiquitous on supermarket shelves. Whether it will satisfy depends on what you normally buy at coffee shops. My wife favors a latte or mocha, so she found Dark Magic too strong. I prefer an Americano, so I liked this roast.

I tested the Dark Magic blend on Keurig's small cup (5.25 oz) setting to capture the strongest flavor. It was a nice improvement from Green Mountain's Fair Trade Gingerbread I drank earlier in the week. Dark Magic is bolder than Tully's Coffee Kona Blend or Green Mountain Coffee Breakfast Blend but no more bitter.

If you need more caffeine, I recommend you add a SToK Caffeinated Black Coffee Shot.

In summary, I like "tres intense" roasts and Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic is the darkest I have found in the Keurig lineup. I will post an update should I try a stronger blend than Dark Magic. Rating: Four stars.

BTW: Here are other coffees I recently reviewed for Amazon:

5 stars: Van Houtte Chocolate Raspberry Truffle
4 stars: Tully's Coffee Kona Blend
4 stars: Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic
3 stars: Green Mountain Coffee Breakfast Blend
3 stars: Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Gingerbread

The Keurig system is marvelous--and the Dark Magic coffee is delicious. But Amazon is falling down on the job a bit with this price--you can buy a box of 24 K cups from the Keurig site for $13.95--and get a discount as muc as 15% if you are a repeat buyer.

We recently started ordering Kcups thru Amazon due to the price (as opposed to purchasing from grocery and/or retail stores). HOWEVER, upon receipt of our most recent order, the shipment contained only 35 Kcups (NOT the 50 that was ordered and paid for) AND two(2) Kcups were damaged beyond use. A return or exchange was not applicable since this is considered a food item. We did receive a FULL refund for this order due to the lack/damage of the item(s) and the inconvenience. We very much appreciated Amazon's assistance and understanding, but more attention needs to be placed on filling orders such as this to ensure they are correct!

I compared the 18 cup Dark Magic (from Target) to the 50 cup Dark Magic(from Amazon), since the labeling and k-cup is markedly different. The coffee did not taste as rich, so I became more curious.

I opened the k-cups to find the 50 cup filters have a visible cross hatch pattern, as compared to a dense firm paper style. I used a microscope to see the difference in density, as well. The weave of the fibers of the 50 pack is not as closely bound.

The coffee granules are finer in the 18 cup, giving the coffee a different texture on the fingers. The 50 pack ground coffee appeared 50%-100% larger under the microscope.

I hope that Keurig can shed some light on my findings! I have photos I can submit. I notice amazon is out of stock, currently. Perhaps, Keurig is looking into the matter.

This is one of my favorites. Why is Amazon charging so much for it though? Bought easily elsewhere for 10.00 or so.
Amazon, you can be competitive with this one. That should be two boxes for this price.

I love this coffee! It's the next best thing to espresso. If you like your coffee strong and dark, without being bitter, this is for you.

I like a lot of crap in my coffee, and yet I still like the flavor of coffee. Generally, with as much crap as I put in it (think half and half, flavored creamer, truvia and flavored syrup), I can no longer taste the coffee. *DUH* I bet you are saying, "well clearly she doesn't like the taste of coffee" but really I do! So I am usually left thinking "why did I put so much crap in my coffee??" Well, problem solved with this Dark Magic. The [great] coffee flavor comes through loud and clear, even with all my additions. I can only imagine that if I DIDN'T put all this crap in it I might singe my nose hairs because boy is it strong! You people who drink it without diluting it, a lot, are my heroes.

My husband and I both really enjoy the taste of this coffee. I tend to like a full robust flavor, and my husband likes his coffee on the milder side, but this coffee satisfies us both. It is 'just right'!

I really love Green Mt coffee. This is a very tasty blend and I think it is my favorite. I don't care for real strong coffee and this one seems to be the perfect blend for me. Nice taste, wonderful flavor, and it smells fantastic when brewing. Great price of almost 50 cents a cup so you can't beat it. I will certainly purchase this product again.
