A stunt artist: dark underbelly supports sparkling top coat where sweetness debitters the very structure that adds heft to it like a bee fertilizes the flower it robs.

Color: fractionally lighter than its 62% sibling
Surface: backside resembling surface of the moon – cratered & craggy

Aroma   8.1 / 10
caramelized cocoa -> red-fruited vanilla swell -> banana leaf, wet wood, filtered tobacco, leather backing
Mouthfeel   12.9 / 15
Texture: coarse, of course...
Melt: ... get ready to grit & grind
Flavor   44.2 / 50
spicy brown sugar quickly gives way to a long red-fruited plane (grapes/cherry/minor raspberry that sparkles without acidifying (the sugar influence) -> eventually interrupted by nibs releasing meticulously-roasted cocoa flashes, weighing in & adding depth & dimension -> sets off surprising cream-top crossed by green-clean (slightly astringent) banana leaf
Quality   18.8 / 20
S-B defines the ‘less-is-more’ paradox thru the lightest optimal roast. Deceptively simple; rare balance; 1st rate everyday-eating chocolate.
