Welcome to Day #6 of Dark Chocolate Theme Week.
Today's 82% Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker (Ashland, OR).
Aroma notes included: relatively sweet dark chocolate (cocoa/drinking chocolate with very faint vanilla), and very faint green botanical and fruit.
The texture was smooth but with an astringency (graininess/dryness) toward (and extending well) into the finish.
Flavor notes included: relatively bold dark chocolate (in keeping with an 82% cacao dark chocolate), very faint, diffuse fruit (red berry and citrus syrup/drink), and faint bitter earth. A very subtle amount of vanilla added a sense of sweet cocoa warmth.
Ingredients: "Cacao Beans, Sugar, Vanilla Bean."
Allergen-related information: "Produced in a facility that processes tree nuts and dairy."
