Maker: Chocolate Tree (Edinburgh, Scotland)
Price: $7.50/80g (Direct From Maker)
Overall Rating: 9.5/10
Munch Factor: 4/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans.
Appearance: beautiful leaf & flower mold with varying levels and good temper; the color is quite dark, as would be expected from a 100% bar.
Aroma: cacao with sweetened dried fruit, maybe apricot or cranberry, and an almond-like earthiness.
Melt & Snap: incredible melt & great snap.
Flavor: bitter cocoa hits first, and then the bitterness melts away and a floral earthiness sets in, and fruitiness right before bam! You’ve eaten it all. It melted into your taste buds. The finish is short and flavorful.
Complaints & Complements: I love that the package contains two individually-wrapped barsI also have to note that I paired this with a micro-batch chocolate stout that my friend made, and they vibe amazingly well. It is an astounding bar, and I am excited to buy more, since I already ate all of this one!
Context: sitting on the floor of my apartment in Korea, just before bed.
