Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.

Today's 100% Fazenda Camboa Brazil bar was from La Feverie (Bourdeaux, France)

Aroma: faint fermented cacao (this note dissipated after the chocolate had been opened for an hour), dark chocolate, fruit, and (later) tannic acid, woodsy notes.

Flavor notes included: bitter, green (tea), and true chocolate (roasted cacao nibs), faint fruit--and, later, woody nut/bark/peat (tannic acids). 

This somewhat acidic, bitter and astringent ultra-dark bar was bold, but also well balanced and interesting, with a sustained finish and a slight throat tickle at the end. 

Maker's tasting notes: "An intense chocolate, slightly tart, with notes of walnuts/hazelnuts followed by a sensation of mint freshness. Presence of fatty and fleshy tannins on a silky finish."

Ingredients: Organic cacao beans

Allergen-related information: (None listed on label that I could see.)
