Potomac – Upala 70% – Georg Bernardini

Written by: Georg Bernardini

Look/Snap: Strong dark brown colour, shiny and with good snap. Not perfect moulded, but this is ok for me as there is no added cocoa butter or soja-lecithin.

Aroma: Pleasant aroma of red berries, raisins, fermantation, lightly coffee. The aroma is not very powerful, but agreeable. The roasting is very light and the roasting aroma almost perfect in the balance to the aroma of the cocoa.

Taste: Round taste with the perfect balance of sugar and cocoa, full-bodied and harmoniously.

Melt & Lenght: Nice melt, but a little bit sticky and migthy. The lenght is very pleasant.

This is a surprising chocolate with the perfect ingredients list (only cocoa and sugar). Due to the low cocoa butter the chocolate is mighty, but in this case I like it very much.
