Appearance   4 / 5
Color: neutral mellow-brown & no real sign of Milk Choc

Temper: semi-lustrous due in part to plastic wrapper transfer (dairy fat reacting w/ polymers)
Snap: perfect for Milk @ this %: tight bass; well-tempered edge wall
Aroma   8.3 / 10
thickly buttered caramel slathers a dark toffee undercoat
Mouthfeel   12.7 / 15
Texture: soft & powderful; slightly squirmy
Melt: lives up to its name & goes for the suede
Flavor   44.2 / 50
uncoils dark caramel slithering thru butter -> bitter lowrider w/ gangster lean -> hollow pocket opens up buttered almonds & brazil nuts -> peat moment -> classic Dark-Milk close
Quality   17.9 / 20
Near perfect pitch & ratios as well-roasted tannic structure pierces the fat to shoot thru the length even though the addition of dairy butter depletes chocolate magnitude & obscures its remnants some by rounding off into golden tones (contributing to that calve in the mid-palate), which has the bonus effect of blocking the perception of sugar, making the bar feel darker than it is.

ING: sugar (Paraguay), cocoa mass (Bolivia), cacáo butter (Bolivia), whole milk pwdr, butter
