It does! Not in the too much caffeine kind of way. It's more of a increased endurance type of energy. The smell of the powder is actually stronger than the flavor. I mix it along with coconut oil in my coffee using an immersion blender. After the first sip I don't even notice it.
As usual, shipping was fast and free :-)

So far, I am feeling perhaps a little bit more awake in the head, but if Maca is like Gingko, I will not really begin to feel the effects until 1 to 2 weeks in, and then BAM! It is obvious. I will set a reminder in my phone to update this review in 2 more weeks.
Update 5/1/14: I stopped taking Maca and went back to Gingko Biloba a few days ago. I still believe this Maca is pure and of high quality, but it did not provide the effects I was looking for. My libido increased, but I actually started feeling more depressed. I switched back to Gingko and felt right again. It is certainly possible that this Maca did not CAUSE depression, but it didnt help it, either. At least not for me. Im a happy camper with a 3/4 dose of BulkSupplements Gingko.
The first week I really didn't notice any difference, and figured that I needed to build a certain reserve within the system. However, the second week I noticed that I felt like I had more energy, was more alive and alert, and was able to work longer without feeling tired, as I usually did. Also, I was able to remember things, and envision things more clearly than before, certainly an improvement.
I haven't noticed any improvement in the sexual desire and fulfillment area, but as I am single, 70 years old, and not dating, I haven't had an opportunity to check that out. For anyone interested in fighting a tired listless existence, and improving to a lively, enjoyable and active lifestyle, this product is for you.
The shipping was very fast for the 100 gram bag. Much faster than the Kilogram bag by about 2-3 days.
To begin, this is WHITE maca root. There are differences between the different kinds, but they all generally work the SAME.
It's very powdered, which is nice. If you have ever tried whey protein, it is a similar density.
The smell is disgusting to me. You'll notice as soon as you open the bag - somewhat like soured milk. It is not pleasant.
Yes, it tastes like how it smells. I do not know if maca root is supposed to smell or taste like this, but it does.
It is hard for me to actually eat the stuff. It just tastes gross. I tried mixing it into a milkshake, which just made the whole thing taste like soured milk crap. It was the worst milkshake I've had - Worse than Mcdonald's Shamrock shake.
I've had limited success mixing it with my coffee. I'll pour it in along with a heaping scoop of hot chocolate mix - which does cut the offending flavor. Unfortunately, the damn stuff won't mix! The maca just clumps together in my coffee, which I get to enjoy every single sip. Yum. A fraction of it just settles at the bottom of my mug. Yeah, you can stay down there.
The only solution to this problem that I can think of is to encapsulate the powder.
Enough about that though. The maca root seems to work pretty good! It has given me the strength of a thousand suns!
I actually feel pretty good when I take it. It makes you feel like going out and getting work done! I can't confirm all the effects right now, but it definitely helps elevate mood and activity levels.
I recommend this product - Good quality, works great. Would buy again!
