Tried this today with a friend, alongside a bar of Amadei's Chuao for comparison.

The delicate aroma was nothing like the punchy aroma of Chuao. The back of the bar was marked with swirling, whereas the Chuao was very uniform by comparison.

Texture of the Porcelana was perhaps a bit smoother than the Chuao and the melt slightly more silky. The taste was earthy, like coffee - as opposed to the fruitiness of the Chuao. If memory serves, though, not as coffee-like as Amadei 9. The acid notes that evoke fruit in the Chuao are entirely absent in the Porcelana.

Interestingly, my friend vastly preferred the Porcelana, not liking the acid in the Chuao. I mildly preferred the fruitiness of the Chuao.

Crunched up the last of both bars today. Enjoyed them both.

One last impression is that the finish on the Chuao bar is much longer than the finish on the Porcelana. The taste of the Chuao lingers. The Porcelana has a more 'classic' chocolate flavor, while the Chuao is very distinctive in personality.
