RATING: 8.5 OUT OF 10.

I've been reviewing energy products for over 2 years and I have never seen a package designed by a famous tattoo artist. Popular tattoo artist Tony Ciavarro is doing just that, designing energy shot labels. And just look at the photograph, where are you going to find a label as cool and as detailed as that? The only problem is, while they could get a tattoo artist to do the label, they couldn't get a beverage expert to do the flavor. This has always been a problem with energy shots. They cram all of these energy ingredients into a tiny package and the result can be terrible. The flavor I had was wild berry, and I was assuming it would be a 5 Hour Energy clone. I poured some in a shot glass and it comes out an amber color, similar to a Red Bull or Monster. Taking a sip I get an artificial berry flavor with a good amount of bite. It is actually quite tasty and I didn't need a chaser. I wouldn't go as far as to saying it's a 5 Hour clone, but they do taste similar. I actually like Eternal Energy better. It also has a nice blend. Let's go through the performance figures. 166.67 percent daily value of niacin, 2,020 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 101 percent daily value of folic acid, 8,416 percent daily value of vitamin b12, and a 2,000 milligram energy blend consisting of taurine, caffeine, maltodextrin, green tea extract, d-glucuronolactone, guarana extract, elderberry extract, d-calcium pantothenate, n-acetyl l-tyrosine, garcinia cambogia, grape seed extract, yerba mate extract, beta-alanine, dl-phenylalanine, l-phenylalanine, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, l-theanine, and folic acid. So this small, 2 ounce shot crams in about 20 energy enhancing ingredients. Yikes! Seriously, I have never seen that many ingredients crammed into an energy shot. That is just incredible. You would assume then, that the kick would be great with all of those ingredients running through me. Unfortunately, it isn't great. It's decent, but not great. If I were to give it a letter grade, it would be somewhere between a C and a C+. The caffeine content is 222 milligrams per shot. The kick doesn't ruin this product, at all. It's still a tasty energy shot with a huge energy blend. Final rating? 8.5 out of 10. If I don't see any drinks with a 9 out of 10 or higher, this could very well be nominated for April's Energy Product of the Month. In fact, it may even win.
