Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Weeks.
Today's Dominican Republic 72% Dark (bar) was from Christopher Elbow Chocolates (Kansas City, MO).
This chocolate had an aroma with dried fruit (goji berries, sweet persimmon, raspberry) notes.
The flavor had some of the same fruit notes mentioned above, in addition to true dark chocolate flavor (rich, dark chocolate cake and frosting), and a fleeting hint of cream (there was no dairy in this chocolate) and very light green.
The chocolate had a relatively mild acidity, a nicely balanced bittersweet taste, and a light finish.
Ingredients: Organic cacao, organic cane sugar, cocoa butter.
