Bar: Atlantic Forest 75%
Maker: Harper Macaw (Washington D.C., USA)
Price: $10.75/60g (The Chocolate House in DC)
Overall Rating: 7.5/10
Munch Factor: 3/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Cane Sugar.
Appearance: rather dark brown coloring considering the moderate percentage; beautiful branded crisscross mold.
Aroma: floral, buttery and sweet; slight astringency.
Melt & Snap: good melt & great snap.
Flavor: dutched cocoa, and then fruitiness alternates with this almost mealy mouthfeel that floats in intermittently but doesn’t affect the tasting experience; finish is short and wholey pleasantly sweet & fudgey.
Complaints & Complements: there is slight bitterness at the end, but it’s overall a good bar. The aesthetic is so well done that it’s a beautiful gift, but certainly not a life-changing bar.I’d buy it again, anyway, however.
Context: sitting in my apartment in rural South Korea.
