Bar: Tres Hombres with nibs (75%)
Maker: Cocoa Runners/Chocolate Makers (The Netherlands)
Price: $GIFT (Chocolátl, The Netherlands)
Overall Rating: 7/10
Munch Factor: 7/10
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, Sugar, Cocoa butter
Appearance: Dull brown color; plain pre-broken mold.
Smell: Woody cocoa and light bitter fruit undertones with a strange chemically smell alongside it all, penetrating the bar. Maybe from the packaging?
The Melt & Snap: Easy but strong snap, with a decent melt.
Taste: Very strange bitter flavor with smooth cocoa notes and a sweet finish. Straight forward from the get-go.
Complaints & Complements: It may be the packaging giving the chocolate itself the weird plastic-y smell suffusing the bar. It’s overall very plain, but not in a bad way.
