Not as Good as the Original......
Posted by Reviewer2832827 on Nov 26, 2012
Alter Eco made a huge mistake by changing the Dark Blackout bar by adding vanilla and by making it thinner than the original version. The vanilla detracts from the full bodied flavor of the original version, and the new version bar is much thinner at 2.82 ounces vs the original bar at 3.5 ounces. The new thinner bar lacks the nice feeling of sinking into the chocolate that the thicker original bar had at 3.5 ounces. Alter Eco needs to bring back the original formula and thickness. In the mean time, the new version is better than the other 85% or higher organic chocolate currently available
My favourite 85% Dark Chocolate Bar

This is the best 85% dark chocolate bar I have ever tried. Ideal for those looking to indulge in low sugar organic chocolate, but not wishing to be overwhelmed by too dark a flavour note. As a nutritionist, I love the fact that Alter Eco sweetens their chocolate bars with whole, unrefined cane sugar.
Rich, Dark Chocolate; For the Connoisseur

I purchased this product because I enjoy very dark chocolate bars (80% or more cocoa content). I really like these bars. The taste is strong with subtle notes of vanilla. I can also tell that this chocolate is sourced from different cocoa trees than mass produced chocolates as there is quite a bit more complexity in the taste. A little bit of chocolate goes a long way. I also appreciate that the company, Alter Eco, seems committed to purchasing from smaller cocoa plantations. That said, this chocolate is not for everyone. If you enjoy a very sweet tasting chocolate like Dove Bars or milk chocolate, this bar will probably be much too bitter for you. However, if you like extreme dark chocolates with high cocoa content as I do, I think this is one of the best! I will purchase often.
this is the best chocolate EVER

it's got no extra additives, no emulsifiers, it's so chocolatey-tasting and it disappears so quickly once I reveal I have a bar of this. We've repeatedly ordered this bar many times. Thank you Alter Eco for a fantastic product!!!

Just perfect amount of sweetener and darkness. Most dark chocolates are still quite sweet or either too bitter. I never liked chocolate until I came across Alter Eco Dark Blackout and Alter Eco Dark Velvet.

This chocolate bar is dark enough to use in baking when a recipe calls for semi-sweet, bitter chocolate, or cocoa. I like to use organic fair-trade chocolate in brownies and cakes, etc., if the price is right, and in this case the quailty is excellent.
Excellent value and quality

Really like this and the fact that it's as pure as things come. Great taste no real bitterness.

I prefer dark chocolate..I will buy this again.
Authentic but slightly bitter for my taste
Posted by 5378201473882705291 on Dec 06, 2015
I ordered this chocolate because I had read that it was authentic and organic. I had never tried 85% cocoa prior to this so I found it a bit bitter. Don't get me wrong , I really liked it, but it was more bitter than my previous experiences. I love dark chocolate but I had never tried more than 77% hence found this one to be more strong which is obvious.
Decent dark chocolate option

Not bad, but a little less smooth than some other 85% or higher options. Also, smaller bar for same price, so...might order again, but not high on my list.
