Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Today's Organic 85% Extra Dark Chocolate Brazil Single Origin Trinitario (bar) was from Nibble Chocolate, LLC (San Diego, CA).
Aroma notes for this bar included: smooth dark chocolate, faint floral, dried fruit (banana), faint graham cracker and very faint sweet green.
Flavor notes included: rich, subtlely layered dark chocolate with a mellow, natural sweetness (maple, coconut sugar), and very faint dried fruit (dates, banana).
This was an attractive (I kept wanting to retaste it) and very approachable (85% cocoa) ultra-dark bar. It was low in bitterness, had no off notes, and had a gentle finish. I may buy this again in a chocolate tasting flight or to share this with friends.
This square Nibble bar was scored into smaller squares (64 tiny squares in all)--a design intended to encourage people to slow down and savor smaller bites of chocolate. Good idea. This pleasing, single origin Trinitario (cacao variety) chocolate was worth enjoying slowly. Handcrafted with just two ingredients; and it had a lot to offer.
Ingredients: Organic cocoa beans, organic unrefined cane sugar
