taste & feel of compressed/chemically-bound cocoa powder -> palate stomping blackcurrent essence rings of too much jelly, against earthen back notes -> odd chemical finish
Quality 11.1 / 20
All flash; no substance. Zero balance... almost entirely extracted fruit. Overprocessing nullifies any great bean…the chocolate here an afterthought, without any distance / depth; just blackcurrent bitters on the tip. Valiantly tries to maintain structure... to no avail.
