Yeah, I've tried it. Cacao, here in Portland, got a limited number and I got one from them. It's tasty. I don't have their other bars to compare, but I think I might have liked the other ones a bit more. Still, a good bar. It starts off very fudgy, I think, and then becomes brightly fruity, like dried cranberries. It finishes a little cocoa-powdery and slightly bitter, I'd say.

I enjoy Amano's bars. I think they're well-balanced.

My bar arrived in the mail today.

The chocolate has a nice earthy aroma.

The flavor profile is dominated by various fruit flavors. A slight earthiness appears near the finish to keep things interesting.

This is a good bar, although I also prefer the other two.

Just tried all three Amano bars and can say that I was impressed enough to buy 3 Ocumares. The Ocumare reminded me a lot of Amedei's Porcelana. Lots of honey, bread, and caramel notes over a nutty background. Not sure about the supposed fruit...

Any recent tasters?

Amano has a new 70% bar with beans from Bali.
