Lindy's Rating: 7.0 (previously ***)
Richard's Rating: 7.0 (previously ***)
This bar had a hard snap. In addition to an initial cocoa roast aroma, Cabello gave off scents of berries that we identified as strawberry, an earthiness reminiscent of soil, and some sweetness.
The chocolate had a slow start, but then released flavors of fruit as berries, a roast that I experienced as coffee, and some nuttiness. Lindy also noticed a brief initial bitterness that went away.
The melt was smoother than normal, which we rated as more smooth. The length of Cabello was short, with the chocolate flavor lasting only about 10 to 15 seconds after the chocolate was gone. The final aftertaste was slightly to somewhat acidic.
Overall, we both rated this chocolate as a low ***.
