Welcome to Day #4 of Scandinavian Chocolate Theme Week.

Today's D80GHA Ghana Dark 80% (bar) was from Peter Beier Chokolade A/S (Helsinger, Danmark). 

The cacao bean variety(ies) used to make this ultra-dark chocolate were: "West African Amelonado/Criollo/Trinitario"

Aroma notes included: mellow dark chocolate with very faint green, cookie, and butter notes.

The texture was very creamy, almost silken, and smooth.

Flavor notes included: bitter, sweet roasted chocolate and faint butter. This pronounced bitter note in today's chocolate will not be for everyone; but it was interesting to try.

Maker's Taste Profile (notes): "Intense roasted cocoa, coconut, dusty and a bitter aftertaste."

Ingredients: Cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier (soya lecithin), natural vanilla aroma. 82.6% cacao solids.

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