The color of Madagascar was a medium brown Bracken (PANTONE 19-1015). The surface was dull and had variations in sheen. The bar had a hard snap.
The chocolate had aromas of citrus, earth, roast in the form of cocoa, and spice that we identified as clove.
The initial taste of Madagascar was of roast that was almost burnt, but then the fruit flavors came out, including both citrus and cherry. Obvious sweetness was present, and then we could taste the clove spice we smelled in the aroma.
The melt was smooth. The chocolate flavor lasted 20 to 25 seconds after the chocolate was gone, giving it a medium length. The finish was slightly acidic.
