Overall Rating: 7/10
Munch Factor: 4/10
Ingredients: Cacao, Sugar, Cacao Butter
Appearance: Pre-broken paneled mold and unsurprisingly very dark brown color.
Smell: Earthy with astringent undertones and a backhanded sweetness.
The Melt & Snap: nice melt & strong snap.
Taste: Bitter woodiness melts into sweetness backed by cocoa. Lovely texture finishes with slight floral & dull fruit; long astringent finish.
Complaints & Complements: You can definitely sense the added cocoa butter, and it helps the texture for sure. Packaging is beautiful as always, and I appreciate the slit in the plastic inner wrapping.
