Dandelion Sierra Leone Gola Rainforest 70% Cacao (Kuramae)

This bar has a roasted profile, with toast and charcoal flavors. There is some granularity to the texture of the bar but it does not intrude on the experience. The bitterness is even throughout, and the aftertaste continues with it. 8.2

This bar uses the cacao beans (including the 2017 harvest) as Dandelion Sierra Leone Gola Rainforest 70% Cacao, but that bar was made in San Francisco, while this bar is manufactured in Dandelion's Japan store in Tokyo. The earlier review is quite different from my review of this bar. I will need to try that bar again (if it is still available) to compare to this newer review.

From the label:
"Mari was fascinated by the prevailing herbal and spiced notes found in this bar. We taste black tea, cinnamon, and roasted walnuts."
