High Attitude Chocolate "Solo" 60% cocoa

When I opened the package, I saw a lot of discoloration -- likely damage from exposure to air or moisture. But this didn't seem to harm the taste too much. I'm not a fan of lower cocoa dark chocolates, for which this 60% bar qualifies, but initial and mid-level tastes were very engaging. Fairly earthy, some nuttiness. I think the latent damage showed up in the aftertaste, which trailed off in a chalky residue. Due to the discoloration, this may not have been a good representative of the product. 6.2
