Welcome to Day #7 of Scandinavian Chocolate Week.

Today's 72% Mork (Dark) Guatemala - Alta Verapaz, Lachua (bar) was from Fjak Sjokolade (Eidfjord, Norway).

The company produces the chocolates in small, single origin batches.

Aroma notes included: smooth dark chocolate (ganache) and balanced botanical (sweet green, floral, nut, seed).

The texture was rich, chocolate-y and smooth with a slight astringency toward the finish.

Flavor notes included: dark chocolate, and faint caffe latte, dried fruit (peach), and very faint green sweet nut/seed. 

This dark chocolate was relatively low in bitterness, but not in flavor. It had nice, elegantly complex and well-balanced flavor notes that extended into a pleasant finish.

Maker's Tasting Notes: "Velvety dark chocolate with apricot and a touch of light roasted coffee notes"

Ingredients: Cocoa beans, Cane Sugar & Cocoa butter
