Sharing is caring!

Bar: In-NIB-itable 74% (Madagascar)
Maker: Patric Chocolate (Columbia, MO, USA)
Price: ~$17/65g (The Chocolate House in Washington, D.C.)
Munch Factor: 7/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cacao.

Appearance: very classy, vertical letter-like packaging with stencil-like image of a cacao pod hanging off a cut branch and all the Patric Chocolate Maker facts I remember always being on him bars, regarding the company’s founding back in 2006. Inside is a plastic-encased medium-dark bar with nibs carefully sprinkled across the back & the chocolate maker’s signature emblazoned forever on the front.
Aroma: sweet & earthy with very light dried fruit.
Melt & Snap: good melt & great snap.
Flavor: melty sweetness and then some harsher but not quite harsh earthiness and red fruit acidity. It all continues to melt into a sweet, fruity mass with a bit of a bite, thanks to the nibs. There are no strong cocoa notes and the finish is short & sweet, lacking any tannin or bitterness.
Complaints & Complements: alright, I confess I ate almost all of this bar in the week before wiritng this review. It’s just a fact of life that I’ve never met a Patric bar I don’t like, and that is quite the feat considering that I’ve tried his licorice bar (and believe that black licorice is a scourge upon the earth). After 12 years making chocolate— more than half my own life— his hype is indeed well-deserved. Delicious bar, all around.
Context: relaxing in my office just before lunch, waiting to head down for some quality Korean food.
