Lindy's Rating: 7.0
Richard's Rating: 7.5
The color of Caraїbe was a medium brown Acorn (PANTONE 18-1314). The bar had a hard snap. Aromas included a cocoa roast, earth, some spice, and a hint of vanilla. The chocolate tasted sweet and the roast reminded Lindy of rich hot chocolate. We also noticed a nutty almond flavor and the vanilla that was hinted in the aroma.
The melt was more smooth. The flavor lasted 20 to 25 seconds after the chocolate was gone, at the short end of a medium length. The finish seemed very slightly chalky to me, and Lindy experienced the final aftertaste as a suggestion of sweetness.
