Patrick Roger Chocolate bar
Taste: One of the best chocolates I have had to date. It’s sublime! Your nose is teased by exotic flowers &  sweet honey. The Indonesian odyssey continues on the palate with orchids floral taste that moves into deep charcoal richness enveloping all of your mouth. Refreshing acidity is balanced by sweet acacia honey aromas, while bitter walnut in the background shows up lively later on. Complex and pronounced aftertaste.
Score:© *****+
Buy it: At the online store (closed for summer) and across France and in Brussels flagship retail boutiques.
© My scores are from * to *****+:
* – hardly palatable chocolate not worth the money and you would not want to buy again unless you needed purely to satisfy your urgent sugar rush;
** – average chocolate not focused on quality but rather bursting with “empty” calories;
*** – high-quality ingredients undermined by the chocolatier’s processing, so the resulting taste is just satisfactory;
**** – enjoyable high-quality chocolate you want to share with others;
***** – outstanding quality and unique touch of the chocolatier that are pleasure to taste and you want to share with your nearest friends and family;
*****+ – heaven on earth for the palate!!! Amazing ingredients highlighted by the chocolatier’s superb skills, so one wants to eat it on every special occasion possible and almost never share with others. !Highly addictive!
