Anyone who’s ever hooked-up with a sistah of Africa knows she can be tough on her man – in & out of bed. Just listen to Chris Rock, Ed Murphy, or Lisa Lampenelli for that matter.

In such situations, guys, consider this bar an Afrodisiac.
Appearance   3.8 / 5
Color: opaque brown w/ cool violet cast
Surface: more airpockets than a pinball machine
Temper: uneven: matte vs. plastic wrapper transfer
Snap: clacks to expose perfect edge wall
Aroma   8.3 / 10
simple on the face of it: stone-grounded cocoa dust &, hmmm... powdered cashew -> grows complicated w/ humus & kola nuts rubbed in red palm oil -> aerates inherently vanilla-scented tobacco
Mouthfeel   12.8 / 15
Texture: breast-friend; lush cream; good weight & spherical dimension
Melt: lazy
Flavor   44.1 / 50
chocolate mixed w/ charnel house smoke hit -> Acacia wood disguised as "scaramel" backed in vanilla -> goes all biscuits -> coconut cream -> toasted plantain -> 2nd wind of vanilla, then cocoa & kola -> humus to the bottom -> ends roasted cashew -> strong cocoa tannin in the down shaft
Quality   17.4 / 20
Dangerously close to burning the flavor-flags off but Soma stays on this side of the roaster, to deliver what Ghana cacáo is noted for: classic Earth chocolate. Steadfast & streamline contour... nothing to get overly excited about... just strapping if lean chocolate spine of considerable stamina, which improves with length.

ING: cocoa mass, sugar, cacáo butter.
