I purchased 5 of these bars from Chocosphere a couple of weeks ago, along with a batch of Ampamakia. If you want a shocking example of the huge variety of flavors produced by different fine chocolates, these two would be a good choice. The Slitti is all about rich coffee, almond,licorice, roasty flavors, with a just-barely-there sweetness. Totally different from the Ampamakia. I eventually started to really enjoy it after my initial shock. Kind of expensive at $8/bar, but I could see why people seek out this chocolate.

The flavors you just described are what I’m actually looking for. To be honest, I need a change from all this fruity chocolate. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I need a chocolate that doesn’t reek of citrus or fruitiness. Perhaps that’s why I regard Cluizel’s Ilha Toma with such high esteem. However, (and also ironically) I can’t get enough of Cluizel’s Venezuela 72% and Madagascar 72%. I’ve been meaning to check out Slitti’s 82% for quite a while now, and when I saw that http://www.chocosphere.com carried it, I almost flipped. I have a bar of Slitti 100%, but as I mentioned in another thread, I am reserving that for a special occassion.

I’m still loving the fruity chocolate, but I have been wanting to try some darker flavors, like nuts and coffee. Right now when I get a craving for something not as fruity as, say, valrhona, I grab the Gran Saman. It’s still slightly fruity, but does has that dark, earthy taste.

I’m really curious about Slitti’s darker bars in general, since you probably don’t get more enthusiastic responses than Chocophile’s review of the 62%. However, since Chocosphere appeared to be out of just about everything when I placed my order a week or so ago, I got the 45% just out of curiosity. I am in no way a milk chocolate fan but I immediately got the sense from the quite-decent 45% that I’d love the higher bars. Has anyone tried that 62%, or even the 73%, both of which I’ve seen elsewhere and am seriously considering buying?
