Big Brown can refer to UPS, a horse, or chocolate of course.

And what can these browns do for you? Deliver. BIG.

Rio Caribe by Rózsavölgyi... a truckload of a stud prancing around as a bar.

Appearance   4.9 / 5


Color: topsoil
Surface: hang it over the lintel at the entrance of Chocodom
Temper: quiet regal confidence...
Snap: ... anything but quiet
Aroma   8 / 10
strange for a Caribe: rice-paper pudding in buttermilk
settles into its more normal countenance -- cocoa caramel
Mouthfeel   12.3 / 15
Texture: shatter glass turns to wax
Melt: methodical
Flavor   45.5 / 50
chocolate & nothing but until more in the way of cocoa butter creams it up some -> café au lait with almond creamer -> brown fruit (date) -> cookie dough -> recessed wood tannin -> rich frangipani point
Quality   16.3 / 20
Advertised fresh fruits never materialize, which indicates a probable short ferment cycle (sub-3 days).

As expected, however, incredible dark-toned compounds more than just compensate... they fill any voids with deep chocolate.

Nothing too complicated; just solid to the core with good bone structure.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter
