DESCRIPTION:

Tasting Notes: Feeling adventurous today? The flavor notes of bright red berries (what we’ve come to expect from Madagascar) is paired with a rare hand picked wild pepper, making for a mildly spicy chocolate with notes of clove and coffee. It’s definitely a chocolate experience like no other, so it also comes as no surprise that this bar has won multiple awards for its unique flavor over the years.

 This chocolate has a very expressive cocoa aroma with subtle fruity-sweet tartness and pleasant flavor notes that evoke citrus and red berries. We combined it with the finest and rarest pepper, the voatsiperifery from Madagascar, whose earthy and woody taste is completed by intense flowery aromas bringing freshness to the palate.

My favorite chocolate of all

Having lived seven years in Madagascar, I'm a fan of Madagascar chocolates. I'm also a huge fan of the pairing of peppercorn with chocolate. I've tried every chocolate/peppercorn combo I've found, and for me, this one is my favorite. Voatsiperifery is a uniquely fruity, citrusy and aromatic peppercorn and it pairs perfectly with the Madagascar dark chocolate. I did a taste-testing of the three Akessons peppercorn chocolates with several friends and we all liked this one the best (closely followed by the pink peppercorn one).

Too peppery

I love the taste of the peppers, but it simply overpowers the chocolate. If the amount of pepper were reduced by half or so it would be an excellent chocolate bar.

Akesson's Madagascar Trinitario Cocoa & "Wild" Voatsiperifery Pepper 75%

I expected more fruitiness and tartness. The flavor profile is driven by the very rare pepper aroma softened by the mild yet warm chocolate background. The red berries notes are like ghosts: something you can feel around you but you cannot see. Mysterious and immersive but very delicate. I believe it represents a perfect choice for pairing with wine and cheese.
