Bar: Madagascar (75%)
Maker: Åkesson (London, England)
Price: $GIFT (Chocolátl, The Netherlands)
Overall Rating: 9/10
Munch Factor: 6.5/10
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin (0.1%)
Appearance: Plain dark brown color with a square mold and stylized centered “Å.”
Smell: Ambrosial cocoa smell, delectable from across a room; a bit woody, with undertones of dried red fruits.
The Melt & Snap: Nice strong snap & good melt.
Taste: Starts melty with strong cocoa, and then goes savoury with a bit of wood, hitting an unexpected chocolate frosting note at the end- very pleasant and not bitter at all! Those red fruits never make an appearance, however.
Complaints & Complements: Not that there was much to put back, but the paper packaging outside made a nice home for the last few bites of this bar. As always, a stunning and classic outside, a sure hit at parties!
