Intriguing & risk-taking without being foolish or trendy: this bar isn’t looking for its 15 minutes of fame. It’s got game & stamina.
Appearance   4.7 / 5
Color: deep mahogany/raw umber w/ purple overtones
Surface: soft plate, very clean imprinting: metal mold crispness
Temper: again, clean; good distribution
Snap: sharp high pitch…this one fights back
Aroma   8.5 / 10
attack of the cardamom w/ lyrical, fragrant cherries & loam backing
Mouthfeel   12.7 / 15
Texture: satin start to a chert (silica) / talc middle & granules of spice finish
Melt: very fast & aggressive
Flavor   43.2 / 50
thick foundry material; lots of cocoa mass cut by less butter than usual; first flurry goes to spice, then orange takes up a pleasant recess; slightly alkalized finish
Quality   18 / 20
A dark northern latitude interpretation. Well constructed, clean, & robust (earthen) without aggression (other than the melt itself). 72% base embellished with the right balance of cardamom + just an echo of orange, via a roast that teaches many a “top seller” bar a lesson.
