The liquified pulp is used by some cocoa producing countries to distill alcoholic spirits.

Does anyone know anything about these spirits? Do they taste anything like chocolate?

They have a cacao note to them, but do not taste like chocolate. I tried one made in Venezuela near Cuyagua, and though I prefer a good scotch, it was definitely interesting. It was quite fruity. The company that made it also had a rum-type liquor with just a note of cinnamon and ground up cacao. I liked it a bit better.

Claudio Corallo also distils the cacao flesh. I tried his "aguardiente" (flaming water) from the Rovira KKO collection and it was definitely very strong. I estimated it around 50-60% like a stronger plum palinka here. But after the initial strength, it had a very nice cacao aftertaste lingering long. A distinct fruitiness was also present, it's not by chance I made the comparison to the plum brandy. Very nice experience altogether.
