You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams - Dr. Seuss

Yep, this bar will keep you up... in a dream state, somewhere between the alpha-to-delta brainwaves & the anahata (heart)-to-muladhara (root) chakras.
Appearance   2.9 / 5
Color: deceptively pale
Surface: distressed fugitive
Temper: cowering under chips, dust, flakes
Snap: pre-snapped in transit
Aroma   8 / 10
malted
wooded
tannic
grainic
bletted mango at the bottom of the meadows
Mouthfeel   12.3 / 15
Texture: quick uptake...
Melt: …. early meltdown
Flavor   45.1 / 50
forest meadow herbals, greens, twigs, soil… all heaped together… fairly standard for Ecuador, then it diverges -> very intriguing honey mallow root x floral crosshatch pattern hits the sweet-jets & galvanizes a candy corn to caramel-taffy -> peanut toffee -> cocoa jute in the downshaft
Quality   17.8 / 20
Unique interpretation of Heirloom III cacáo. Terrific charisma. Occasionally shallow / thin, though easily overcome by those swirling candy FXs.

Other than ancillaries like the marred Appearance or the fast-tracking Texture, K'UL crafts up some meritorious chocolate whose Flavor deserves better than the bar's overall rating.

Cool indeed.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin; Barithmetic (Cocoa mass / Butter / Sugar ratio): ~2:3:2
