This bar from Akesson's is as about as 'chocolaty' as you could ever wish for. It has a profile similar to the Chocolat Madagascar 70% in that it is rich and creamy. Just as Madagascar is hot bed for cross-fertilisation of cacao strains, here too in Bali we have mongrel cacao that produces a wonderful chocolate.
The aroma comes across as slightly acidic, bordering a touch on 'tobacco' with spice. Whilst all the action is in the flavour. It's seemingly a milk chocolate style dark. It's creamy beyond believe and presses all the base, human buttons present in mass-market chocolate, but knowing that very good cacao has been used by experienced and skilful chocolate makers.
There certainly are Caribbean flavour notes of soft fruit and a noticeable roast that still is a fair few notches below that of the Pralus Chuao, but there are certainly similarities.Add to cart via Cocoa Runners
