Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Colombia Theme Week.
Today's Goat Milk - Sierra Nevada, Colombia, 60% Dark Milk Chocolate (bar) was made by Moku Chocolate (Philomath, OR).
The bar had a sweet aroma with warm milk chocolate with rich caramel tones. In the texture department, the creamy melt and chewy caramel mouthfeel also mirrored a flavorful, high-end milk chocolate caramel.
And last, but not least, the taste offered a deeper dive into a classic chocolate caramel confection flavor and texture experience.
Fine goat milk caramel and single origin chocolate (Sierra Nevada, Colombia cacao in this case) were made for each other. The words "confection" and "candy" sell this well-executed bar made with high-quality ingredients short. I find most 60% chocolates too sweet; however, there were enough flavor(s) in the chocolate to prevent it from becoming a sugar-fest.
The maker's described this 60% bar best:
Maker's tasting notes: "...the addition of goat milk creates a delicious caramel flavor with a slight tang and a lovely smooth and velvety mouthfeel."
