Paul A. Young

A friend recently returned from England, and came back bearing a great gift: chocolate!  Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of the varieties I tried.
  • 100% Madagascan. Single origin.  Tasting notes: Wow.  This was intense.  Bitter, tart, made my face pucker in a way that no chocolate ever has.  Very chalky mouthfeel.  Emil noted some herbal qualities, perhaps thyme.
  • 64% Papua New Guinea.  Single origin.  Tasting notes: Very hard to bite into, but not a pleasant snap.  Incredibly fruit forward.  Chalky mouthfeel that I did not like.  Some grittiness.
