Welcome to Day #9 of Dark Chocolate Theme Week, and Day #1 of Scandinavian Chocolate Week.

Today's D71.6PBSB - Dark 71.6% PB Special Blend was from Peter Beier Danmark (Helsinger, Danmark).

Aroma notes included: dark chocolate (ganache), faint salted butter, very faint dried fruit (fig cookie, barely detectable rye bread with butter and honey, banana, and sweet (green) tea.

The texture was buttery (almost silky) smooth.

Flavor notes included: chocolate-y (very smooth, buttery dark chocolate) with subtle variations on the aroma notes (listed above): gentle dried fruit, honey, and fig, that lingered into a very pleasant finish.

This thoughtfully executed dark blend (made with Hispaniola/Criollo cacao) had an attractive, subtle complexity with an enjoyable dark chocolate aroma and flavor profile; and it was relatively low in bitterness.

Maker's Taste Profile (notes): "Cocoa, honey, green tea and a butter flowery aftertaste."

Ingredients: Cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier (soya lecithin). 71.9% cacao solids.

Allergen-related information: (Can contain traces of milk or nuts.)
