The Taste of Chocolate

Why do we like chocolate, really? Put some chocolate in your mouth, let it melt a bit and take some time to really taste it. Other than being sweet there isn’t always a lot to the chocolate we buy nowadays. Those candy bars seem to be more oil slick based than chocolate. Real chocolate is different. It used to be cooked as a savoury dish, not sweet. Sweet came later but stuck around.

Describe the taste of chocolate, in detail, as if you were trying to tell an alien from another galaxy too far from our planet to ever be sent a chocolate bar.
