This was the first extremely bitter dark chocolate bar I tried many years ago and it still one of the most revered bars of its type. Nothing more can be said about Michel Cluizel's to convey his ability to make outstanding chocolate that hasn't been said before, but this Noir Infini 99% bar certainly does pack a punch. Although this bar cannot be placed in the 100% dark chocolate category because it does contain other non-cocoa ingredients such as cane sugar, ginger, cinnamon and Bourbon vanilla, it does, however, exhibit the same intensity of 100% chocolate.
What the other ingredients do offer though is a slightly more rounded flavour, one where, the ginger and cinnamon add the slightest degree of spice and the vanilla takes off the very slightest rough edge.
