Chocolate hash; a gentle giant / heavyweight without the swagger.

Color: black cherry
Surface: even
Temper: well-tempered sheen
Snap: quiet
Aroma   7.3 / 10
bourbon spice baby: honey vanilla ice cream; small peach nut; short chocolate/tobac in the recesses; so streamlined it smells deodorized or stripped
Mouthfeel   12.5 / 15
Texture: thick waxed-up taffy
Melt: endlessly swells
Flavor   45.2 / 50
evokes next to nothing but itself - chocolate on chocolate; bitter spike in the midcabin -> sweet flash, then back to the chocolate narrows; finishes broad & lengthy on coconut earth
Quality   17.6 / 20
Calling this West Africa accurately reflects the reality on the ground, seeing how hard it sometimes is to ascertain provenance where beans from neighbor countries like Cameroon & Nigeria often get thrown into the pile with those in Ghana. Practically demos Belgian ganache in bar form. Simple & easy: tall monomaniac flavor w/ ground level acidity. Quite Lindt-like... kinder, gentler version of the 85% King Kong.
