Sierra Nevada 64%
 
Aroma: Mild, sweet, raisin

 

Flavor: Very sweet, fruity, dried fruit, grape jelly, green grape, raspberry jam, very soft earthiness like celery, nutty, like sweet creamy peanut butter, mineral – almost a slight ashy taste, but not excessive. A very milky richness – almost tastes like milk chocolate, milk chocolate covered cherry. 

 

Recommendation: Highly recommended, especially if you are looking for a dark chocolate that’s on the sweet side (this is 64% and is naturally sweet). Another beauty from Cacao Hunters.

Flavor: deep chocolate, some fruitiness, vanilla, delicate dried fruit - blueberries, cherry; black cherry soda, concord grape, sweet port wine, slight hazelnut nuttiness, dark caramel, walnut, slight greenness, cream, silky melting texture like ganache. Rich flavor with lots of medium dark notes like dried fruit and deep chocolate, complemented by softer notes of vanilla, caramel, and nuts.

100%

 

Aroma: toasted hazelnuts, a little floral

 

Flavor: Great! Tangy flavors develop as you taste it, more complexity than many 100% bars. Fruity. Coconut, red fruit, a little nutty, candied orange rind, great natural sweetness. Extraordinarily little bitterness, virtually no astringency,

 

Recommendation: Highly recommended. This is one of the best 100% bars we have tried.
