As I continue my quick reviews of the Zotter chocolate bars that are approaching, or have past their best before dates I move on to the Organic Beer Bar which they used to stock in their ‘crazy bars‘ range.
Skipping the visuals that I’ve covered many times before and moving on the aroma which seems to be another consistent between the vast majority of these wacky bars – its acidic and fruity, just like you would expect to come from a wine yard’s press room. I don’t want to say I’m getting bored of it, but I think I over did it with buying all these unusual flavours.
The texture was actually much better in with this one than most of the others. It was less cakey and more like the texture that you get from fresh fudge, which I found very appealing The taste obviously did carry some of the acidity through but it was more tempered. I didn’t really get a whole heap of organic flavours coming through which was a shame. But there does seem to be a bit more of a fruity alcoholic nature which, on closer inspection, is likely to come from the organic beer brandy that makes up 11% of the ingredients along with the beer.
Overall, I found this to be one of the more enjoyable bars from Zotter that I’ve tasted recently and it’s just a shame I waited so long to try it!
As a quick rating I’d have to give it a 70% – mainly because it reminded me of cookie dough ice cream.
