Aroma: sweet molasses.
Melt & Snap: hard melt & hard snap.

Complaints & Complements: I bought this bar before the company started any exporting of their bars, though the maker was at the Salon du Chocolat in Paris while I was visiting her store. I wish so very badly that I’d bought more of them. Despite over-refining on all of their bars(that I’ve tried so far), everything I’ve tried has been superb and this is no exception.
Context: sitting in my apartment in Korea, after a nice long walk outside.
