This is a dark 100% that is at the more intense scale of the 100%'s we have available here. The first bite will be a jolt to the the system but that should just serve to reset your taste buds. As you return to it the intensity reduces and the glorious cacao flavours come through in a more natural context than any other 100% I can recall. You may get notes of almond butter pushing out from the earthen theme.
There's no denying that this 100% is particularly acid and would suggest that although the structure of the chocolate is fantastic, the manufacture protocol featured a pretty short conche time.
Although I would suggest newcomers to 100% perhaps start at a bar which is more like the lower cocoas such as the Bouga Rustica, seasoned 100% chocolate lovers who are more in-tune with chocolate with a greater sharpness should appreciate this.
