Description from vendor site

Have you ever wondered what squid ink tastes like? Well, many believe that it is a noxious substance used to scare predators off; this common misconception is acceptable, as let’s be honest with each other here; only first year marine biology students are made to taste it, and their tastebuds are destroyed thanks to the Student Union bar.

No; squid ink is actually a very complex blend of fruits and is actually sublimely sweet.

Available to in “normal” or “black” edition.

Squid Ink 11.0

An amazing taste that is 'clean', Really hard to actually pin what's in it other than a sort of wine gum/jelly baby kind of thing. Squid Ink is only beaten by Djeli Bean (also from Kraken). Kraken is one of the best unknown (only seen it online) mixers and it raises the bar higher with each new juice.

Kraken HQ is not far away from me so I'd love to know when a shop is coming :D

My go to juice. Jim you are my hero!!

If I could only have one juice in my life it would be this beaut, truly magnificent flavour which I still find hard to describe to people. Certainly back people's thoughts of haribo and black jellies etc

Simply scrumptious and my ADV

Squid Ink 10.0

Was given some by a friend and loved the smell before I even vaped it.

Just like harbo fruity, juicy and leaving me wanting more with each vape I took.

I'd heard it being spoken of from a few friends and work mates and it certainly lived up to its tasty hype!

10/10 allround for vape, cloud and general tastyness!!

Squid Ink 7.0

I think this is nice but over-hyped.

I picked this up after seeing a lot of rave reviews, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed.

To be brutally honest I find the flavour a bit underwhelming. I find it a tad muted and a bit fake - reminds me of wine gums. It is by no means unpleasant, definitely above average, I just don't find it that special. Maybe I got the wrong strength - I got 6mg, my usual strength. There's not much throat hit (even considering the low nic) and I would prefer a stronger flavour.

One thing that I think is really nice is a 6:1 Squid ink/Flavour art Blac kJack mix - I would really love to see an anise-tainted version of squid ink from Kraken. For me it's a good juice, but not quite on the money.

Squid Ink 9.5

I'll make no bones about it, I think Jim from Kraken is the very model of a great vendor and this certainly colours my opinions of his juices. That said, Squid Ink has gone from something I find interesting to something I love. Like his Red Lady juice, I have a dual mesh wick Bliss V2 tank always sitting with a load of Squid Ink in - currently on a Pisces clone. It is a wonderful fruity vape which doesn't overpower with sweetness in a genny. An intriguing mix of flavours, undefinable, but oh so very moor-ish. In a review I posted on the POTV forum I said the nearest thing I could come to explaining the flavour would be if you were the recipient at a Jelly Baby bukake party.

Squid Ink 11.0

Well after being a big fan of @MrKraken Minion Farts I thought I should give the famous Squid ink a go. It came in the post this morning (quick as always) the plan was to let it steep for a while but well couldn't wait. It went in the dripper on my Evic fired it up and Wow loved it!
I will try a not be a ponse and describe all the flavours and to me it was very simply Mixed fruit travel sweets I used to get from my Nan with a cooling exhale. Simples!
I've now filled up the Hyper tank (5mls) and it will be next weeks ADV

Great job as always Mr K! will be needing more very soon lets hope its in the advent calendar

As a fully qualified marine biologist, I can confirm that this is EXACTLY what squid ink tastes like. Kraken have brought their mixing chops to simulating precisely the soft, ripe juicy fruit flavours of Summer berries, autumn windfalls and citrus zing that *is* alarmed cephalapod.. I salute genius.

Squid Ink 10.3

Fantastic tasting liquid, my current all day vape. Plenty of vapour and a taste that just keeps on giving, the colour looks cool too.

I get a really lovely taste of jelly babies mixed with like gummy bears. The taste also lingers a bit at the back of your tongue which is what I look for in a decent e-liquid.

Squid Ink 10.5

As has already been mentioned, this comes with black food colouring at less than 0.1%. If you want it without that in, you can specify so at the time of ordering.

I brought this expecting something ok, and it really blew my mind. It's my new favourite juice (for now!) and is really well made. I'd agree that this feels on par with the high end juice coming out of North America.

The flavour is pretty mighty, full of Blackberry, Blueberry, and something else that gives it a slightly sticky texture. It tastes like a fine jam perhaps. It's nice and sweet but avoids being sickly. It has the best aftertaste in any juice I've tried.

It also has a respectable throat hit and really nice vapour product for the nic level and pg/vg ratio.

Squid Ink 8.0

I don't like food colouring in my juice, but I do kinda like the black colour of this juice, so ima make an exception for squid ink.

The flavour wasn't what I was expecting for the name, it's like blackcurrent/blueberry and some sort of cakeyness too and it all works really well together. Cooper mentioned dolly mixture and I think that's spot on. Only had a little bit from a friend but I'll be ordering more once it's in stock.

I didn't get so much vapour, but I suspect that's how my latest coil is working rather than the juice. Flavour was full, throat hit good and the taste lingers nicely.

Squid Ink 9.3

Hmmm, Squid ink, upon opening the envelope, you reach in and pull out a bottle of black liquid, its a colour that throws you off of what this might actually taste, and gives it that extra something special,

Upon opening the bottle you are greeted by a blast of a fruity, berrysome bouquet, certainly not what one would expect of a juice this colour.

Now to taste, I was using my era dripper for this, as I dripped a few drops, a small area around me was filled with the awesome smell of the juice, I got the trusty K100 out, and we where away,

On first taste I got blackcurrants, followed up with what my tastebuds think is cherry, and possibly even peach and some apple,

this is the joy of the flavour for me, its just a pure mix of ripe fruits, pleasing to the taste buds, and nostrils alike, with a colour that would look good in any clear tank, if you like fruity vapes this ones for you, its pure fruity indulgence in a bottle, and I love it

Squid Ink 10.0

Before I get into the review, I will point out that this juice includes trace amounts of black food colouring. For those that have concerns about vaping food colouring, there is an option on the site to have the colouring excluded from your mix.

This is another juice I was lucky enough to pick up a sample of at this year's Vapefest. There was only about 4ml and that's all gone. It went on sale in limited quantities last night, so I bought a couple more bottles. It's out of stock now but is expected to be readily available by September.

So, to the review; when I opened the bottle, the smell instantly reminded my of one of my favourite juices, which is blueberry pie filling, with a few other berries mixed in for good measure. It tasted nothing like it. To me, it tasted like blackberry, with a hint of blueberry, but also something reminiscent of my youth that I quite couldn't put my finger on - my partner said that she thought it might be the old Dolly Mixture sweets, I wasn't so sure but knew it was something similar. I saw somebody else's review of the juice today, in which he said it tasted like Jelly Babies, and do you know what? He's bang on the money!

So there you have it folks; Squid Ink tastes like a blackcurrant Jelly Baby with a hint of blueberry, and it's packed full of flavour.

For me, this juice is of the same standard as the premium eliquids that we see more and more of coming out of California, but doesn't carry the excessive price tag with it.

Jim also let me try another flavour expected to be released in September, which wasn't to my personal taste, but also mentioned a couple of other flavours he's working on which sound interesting.

Look out for Kraken Ecigs juice line starting to appear in September 2013 and buy some Squid Ink - it's bloody good!
