Domori opts out of a shiny finish, instead deciding on a matte-style one. Chocolate has a nice cherry-mahogany colour, as becomes this Trinitario cocoa. Significant swirling is found on the back, indicating a quick mold. Crisp snap with little visible grain.

Aroma is immediately classic Domori, offering hints of buttermilk, cherry, and flashes of fresh-picked strawberries.

Taste opens up with strong tones of the ferment -- mainly vodka, before giving some ground to a sweeter note of cherry cordial. The flavour then evolves into something more woodsy, reminding me of mushrooms and oak. Through this evolution is a background of allspice, creating a very dynamic chocolate indeed -- if a little untamed.

Chocolate melts beautifully, unctuously coating the entire mouth...like yoghurt. Simply marvelous.

The length is very long, with some bitterness along with a more intriguing note of sherry vinegar.

A great chocolate that could probably use some work to bring it under control. I find myself, however, very satisfied after a couple small pieces.

Look/Snap: 8/10 4/100
Aroma: 8.5/10 8.5/100
Taste: 8.5/10 29.75/100
Melt: 10/10 5/100
Length: 8/10 12/100
Opinion: 8/10 24/100

Total: 8.325/10 83.25/100 Could improve in the future. Domori has indicated that this is a new hybrid.

I'm very interested in the cacao coming from this region of Peru. I've enjoyed the rather wild character of both this bar and the Dagoba Milagros quite a bit. It'll be great to see what happens next!
