Description

An initial aroma of deep cocoa and roasted coffee bean. A smoky start to the flavour of this single origin chocolate is soon lifted with a slight acidity, as in a fine single origin coffee, notable earthy, vegetal flavours with a bitter finish.

Created from Forestero cocoa from Africa. We have selected this chocolate as part of our Superior Selection range for its outstanding flavour profile and purity of ingredients.

5Absolute perfection!

Brilliant, the best 85% cocoa chocolate I've tried to date, I got a dark fruit and nut taste from this particular brand which was excellent, highly recommended.

4You really must try this

The 85% cocoa content is perhaps a little too high for me. Particularly as I've never really chosen chocolate over 70% cocoa content. It came as part of my Dark Chocolate bar bundle purchase and I'm glad a higher cocoa content bar was included (otherwise we never get to try these things). I enjoyed the difference and you get much more of a cocoa 'hit' with this bar and its certainly a chocolate bar you wouldn't rush. I would certainly recommend you try this or a similar bar as you may surprise yourself and enjoy high cocoa content chocolate more than you think.

3Worth a try

Strong, acidic with vanilla flavours, this chocolate leaves a lovely initial impression. However the consistency is quite dry and rough and ruins any flavour. Shame really. I won't be buying it again.

5Absolute perfection!

I like the heavy roasted chocolate bars and this, along with some of the Pralus chocolate bars such as the Equateur and Colombie, both at 75% dark chocolate I would definitely recommend.

5Absolute perfection!

Out of the 85% cocoa chocolate bars I have tried this and the michel cluizel grand noir 85% are my favourites. Bitter but not burnt and you can just tell its a good cocoa. Pralus would have been in my top three but it does vary a little and can be quite heavily roasted at times.
