lizvogel: Good / Bad (Good Bad)
Hagensborg Wild Boar Santo Domingo (70%)

Where Bought: Marshalls

Single origin dark chocolate. Bar is amusingly shaped with a couple of "bites" out of the edges, and a cheerful boar and "chomp gobble munch" embossed on the front.

Aroma: intense dark cocoa. This bar ain't fooling around.

Texture is dense, seemed hard at first but once it yielded, nicely melty.

Flavor is seriously cocoa, rich and fulfilling. There's just a hint of sourness, but it's an accent, not a main player, and serves to highlight the sweet darkness. Reminds me a bit of a really good flourless cake. On further acquaintance, also reminiscent of dark chocolate fudge. Good stuff.

Overall: Yeah. Not a light snacking chocolate, but definitely good. Would happily buy again.
