Dagoba Chocolates – Milk and New Moon

May 20th, 2011 by Rosa

I received a couple of Dagoba chocolate squares in my American Chocolate Week Chocolate Gift Pack: Milk and New Moon.

I’d reviewed the Milk before, but that was years ago, and it was nice to take another gander at it with a much darker Dagoba bar for contrast.

The Milk was 37% cacao. The coloring was dark for a milk bar (left in the photo below). It had a snappy break and a smooth but not thick melt.

It had a nice complexity – woodsy and dark with burnt caramel notes. I found it quite enjoyable, so an OM.

The New Moon was labeled as “rich dark chocolate” and had 74% cacao (right in the photo above). Its melt was on the grainy side.

The chocolate had a burnt tasting edge with extremely fruity notes of cherry. There was a slight bitterness that persisted in the finish that I didn’t appreciate. An O.
