Pet chocolate – fuzzy & adorable – grows melancholic from its stern taskmaster... then perks right back up.
Appearance   4.3 / 5
Color: translucent brown w/ faint magenta tint
Surface: beauty bar w/ minor scars (an airhole here or there like a mole); designer curtains on the back
Temper: flashbulb shellac but uneven (plastic wrapper transfer; Richart ought to discover foil & abandon its packaging of setting bars in plastic trays against see-thru plastic windows w/ a wooden tie closure that cossets bars tighter than a young nubile in a Geisha gown
Snap: slightly hollow (belies opaque color); granulated edge
Aroma   7.7 / 10
Quincipality on fire: rescuing quince in a smoke house of carbon, tobacco smog, & burning heirloom leather luggage + melted coffee pot; reminiscent of Chocovic’s Guyave (also at 71%)... hmmmm; aerates a date
Mouthfeel   12.4 / 15
Texture: heavy middleweight as butter (reflected in the color) packs on the pounds to create lumps
Melt: fudge-like; everlast
Flavor   45.9 / 50
unleashes a white rush: quince spritz, sweetened pineapple -> acacia blossom -> chocolate nutmeg + ginger... strong... & prolonged by carbon & vanilla bringing it home to the Spice Isle -> biscuit cream emerges as butter melts thru the Criollo remnants for some light Oreo FXs -> black caramel -> acacia & eucalyptus woods w/ cherimoya
Quality   17.8 / 20
Richart’s instincts (stern roast, big butter, deep conche) work well with this origin (which can be an unruly acidic exhibitionist) but does kill off a little of its liveliness in favor of darker / flatter contours, sacrificing some personality for polish & poise.

Ideal play-date for Grenada Chocolate Company’s 60% charm.
