  • Description

    Unfortunately this bar is no longer available in our Library. Please see below for four bars that we think you will enjoy.

    Hogarth has taken Akesson’s renowned Madagascan beans and crafted them into a bar infused with the maker’s distinctive style.

    The dark chocolate has been beautifully tempered and moulded into a shiny bar with a clean snap. It melts with a slightly fudgy, almost grainy texture. The bar’s fruity profile has little red berry but plenty of zesty citrus fruits. A drying but chocolatey note counteracts the acidity, creating a very well-balanced bar.

    A great example of Bertil Akesson’s beans. The chocolate is more similar in style to American makers, rather than the buttery rich bars typical of French and European craft chocolate makers.

    Hogarth describe the experience of using these sought-after beans, ‘When the chocolate is being made in our factory the air is rich with acidic fruit aroma being given off by the beans. The beans themselves have a plum colour and the chocolate has a reddish hue which all speaks of the berry and raisin flavours that develop

      Rich colour and strong aroma. Interesting texture. Slow to develop on the tongue, with shy citrusy notes. Somewhat disappointing given Akesson's beans were used, but otherwise a perfectly decent earthy 70%.
