eyes:
medium-light dark brown, orange/yellowish sheen

nose:
Nuts, but also rich notes of caramel, milk – the longer I smell, the more this smells like a milk chocolate!?!

ears:
Thicker than most so it has a pretty puissant snap although maybe duller than 1 would expect. Breaks a bit crumbly, like milk chocolate.

mouth I:
Immediate start with fermented & roast aromas. Then becomes sharper, acidic/bitter, a bit reminiscent of fruit or especially yoghurt or some other dairy tang, but still mostly roasted connotation. Then distinctly like roasted cacao beans or like 1 would imagine eating roasted nut shells would taste like. Underlying fermented flavor throughout, though it pops up more strongly in some places than others.

mouth II:
Wonderful melt, doesn’t need much work at all but doesn’t release too fast either. It has that soy lecithin typical waxy/soapy ‘quality’, especially in the beginning but compared to other using companies much reduced

mouth III:
The sharpness disappears, more like, coffee & nut notes

wattwurmnashi has never had a chocolate that tastes so much like the quintessence of cacao. A most amazing experience. Very similar to popping roasted cacao beans/nibs in your mouth.
