As part of a Chocolate and Mother's Day Series, I'm featuring two chocolates each day of this 3-day series. One sweet, one dark. This 95% cacao chocolate is the latter.
Today's 95% deep dark (bar) was from TCHO Ventures, Inc. (Berkeley, CA).
This bar had a deep, dark, slightly bitter aroma with green, brown/maple sugar, true chocolate (very slightly earthy, fudge brownie), very faint black licorice, and very faint diffuse (red) fruit notes.
This ultra-dark bar had a smooth, substantial texture with a very slightly oily-buttery melt.
The bold dark chocolate flavor was consistent with the aroma notes mentioned above with a roasted, ultra-dark brownie taste and a pleasant dark finish.
Ingredients: Organic, fair trade cacao beans; organic fair trade cocoa butter; organic cane sugar
