Eating it The package delivers a nice fruity and earthy flavor when opened. The large block isn't easy to cut and is best shaved. The chocolate melts nicely in the mouth continuing to delliver the fuitiness enhancing it with a sweet aroma. The after taste is of the same flavor and long lasting. Overall, a great chocolate.
Cooking it This large bar isn't easy to cut and therefore measure for cooking. However, it is easy to shave. The producer doesn't provide tempering instruction but the 62% cacao make it easy to figure-out the crystalization temperature is around 45 Celcius. As a well balanced bar, this is perfect for as unique chocolate source for cakes, and all sorts of pastries. It produces serious cacao flavor withhout excess bitterness.
