Musician friends complain that just as video killed the radio star, the digital starves out the real live ones.

Indie bands & jam bands like Cheese String Incident still can make their cake but only by grinding out hundreds of concert dates a year selling merch as well as tix – a brutal endurance feat compared to the days of Zep or the Dead performing a couple shows a week on rare seasonal tours.

Appearance   3.4 / 5
Color: violet pewter
Surface: well molded
Temper: dim
Snap: nothing to write home about, let alone blog about
Aroma   8.1 / 10
dry goods from the not-so-general store: musk 'n pepper (pretty remarkable given no added vanilla) aerates to a caramelized light-fruit gum, then vetiver + cedar
Mouthfeel   13.2 / 15
Texture: butter-ful with minor grain finish
Melt: beautifully patient / languid
Flavor   46.4 / 50
picks up right where the Aromatics left off: vetiver & cedar, add clove (all a bit claustro-flavic) -> peppers edge to the sidelight before melting into the forefront (sweet spice akin to sichuan emphasizing flavor / savor over heat / burn)... the trio takes turns in alternate dance steps... base black - floral pink - fruited tsiperifery -> the 3 conjoin in a choc-citrus splashdown -> light stringent grip
Quality   17.9 / 20
Enclosed beginning until the peppers open it up.

Chocolate bars abound with black pepper and pink peppercorn but Tsiperifery looks rare enough though the C-spot® subscribers are familiar with it -- even if they fail to recognize it -- as Voatsiperifery from Åkesson's version.

The 3 together possess a certain ease about them. Outstanding balance, symmetry, poise & cohesion.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, lecithin, pink pepper, black pepper, tsiperifery
