The bar has strong fruity notes in the aroma, much like the 60% bar, and it seems that all the Taza bars excel in offering up intense aromas.
The bar is a bit dry, which makes it a little difficult to carry the gritty character of stone-ground chocolate without distracting from the flavor. The most apparent flavor at the beginning is a strong coffee flavor, with a subtle fruity undertone, and the overall flavor is quite bitter. Overall, the bitterness and dry texture are reminiscent of eating straight cacao nibs, which is appealing to some, but not to me personally. If you are an espresso or cacao nib lover, this is your bar. I, on the other hand, think I favor the 70% bar and hereby declare it my favorite of the Taza bars.
