Mint chocolate is unbelievably diverse; Rauchbier, a German dark beer smoked over beechwood is not a natural pairing but works very well the sultry tones of the 70% cocoa.
Alternatively, you could pair this chocolate with a fresh, metallic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The classic mint flavour and rich texture of this dark chocolate bar compliment the elderflower, citron and gooseberry notes in the wine. Only a small piece of chocolate is needed to make a wonderful combination for your taste buds.
For a more obvious pairing, create a Moroccan after eight flavour profile by pairing this bar with a mint tea, with lots of sugar and an extended steaming, Summerdown English mint tea would balance and lift the subtle flavours of mint in the chocolate.
Alternatively Syrah Port, with its unassuming flavours of allspice, clove and eucalyptus would complement the dark richness of the chocolate and the unassuming eucalyptus flavours will enhance and lift the mint oil aromas.
An alternative choose a more fun an vibrant pairing in the way of an aged extra anejo tequila the lively, grassy warmth of the tequila would emphasize the coolness of the mint, whilst the richness of the chocolate would mellow the experience.
