Endangered Species Supreme Dark Chocolate 72%

Produced by: Endangered Species Chocolate
Cocoa content: 72%
Manufacturer website
Rating: A

As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently took a trip to Whole Foods and came home with a handful of dark chocolate bars. Tonight's selection is the Supreme Dark Chocolate from Endangered Species Chocolate. My personal preference for dark chocolate is a cocoa percentage in the high 60's to low 70's, and the Supreme Dark falls right in this range at 72%.

The Endangered Species Supreme Dark Chocolate has a rich chocolate flavor. There are roasted notes on the palate reminiscent of roasted peanuts. There is some noticeable bitterness that is well-balanced with the chocolate and roasted notes. There is a faint hint of acidity as well. This chocolate bar has a fairly smooth texture as it melts on the tongue, but with some slight grittiness. The finish is fairly long with some peanut butter notes blended with a touch of bitterness.

This is a well-balanced dark chocolate with some great flavor. I couldn't help but sneak a few extra pieces as I was writing these tasting notes. Highly recommended.
