Pralus Venezuela

Manufacturer: Pralus
Cocoa Content: 75%

Rating: B+

The next dark chocolate up for review is the Pralus Venezuela. This chocolate bar is deep mahogany in color with dark cherry-red undertones. The initial flavor is of bitter coffee grounds, which then opens up to a rich dark roast coffee flavor. There is a smoky/roasted quality that persists. Nutty almond and pecan notes are present. The Pralus Venezuela dark chocolate bar has a moderate acidity.

Chewing the Pralus Venezuela opens up sweet notes of cherry and vanilla, along with some earth and tobacco. The finish lingers with more of the smoky bitterness. While this may be a bit one-dimensional in flavor, if you are a fan of chocolate with deep roasted flavor, then the Pralus Venezuela is your bar. Highly recommended.
