Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Honey Theme Week.

Today's 77% Semuliki Forest Single Origin Dark Chocolate (bar)--made with Ugandan cacao, Peruvian cacao butter and raw honey--was from Honeymoon Chocolates (Saint Louis, MO).

Aroma notes for this bar included: dark chocolate (slightly earthy, mild peaty/tannic acid, fermented cacao nibs), and very faint green fruit (banana).

Flavor notes included: chocolate (deep, ultra-dark chocolate, balanced but complex earth, olive fruit); and under these deep jungle notes was a light floral honey sweetness (not as pronounced in sweetness as cane sugar typically is) that managed to cast a few soft rays of honey goodness.

This bar will satisfy ultra-dark chocolate fans and those who like their chocolate less sweet. I enjoyed it. It was relatively high in dark fruit (dried plum)/tannic acidity, and had a balanced bitterness to it. 

Maker's tasting notes: "Chocolate mousse, melon, white peach, and plum"

Ingredients: Organic cacao (Uganda), raw honey, organic cacao butter (Peru)

Allergen-related information: "Free of refined sugar, soy, dairy, and gluten"
