Finally, opening day at last! Ahhh yes, the flavor is very good. There are the beginnings of crystals and the paste is as dry as I wanted, even using 4% milk. I love chocolate and espresso, but found I didn't like those flavors with the cheese. Even the tiniest specs left on the cheese give an intense burst of chocolate! The rind protected the cheese beautifully, but was very tough to plane off!
I'm going to run this cheese again, but with 2% milk. I'll use Paracoat instead of the cocoa rub.
