uh.....yeah. I kind of figured it had a sweet dark flavour....now what about that flavour...is it like molasses? is it like brown sugar? or maybe a tad like dark maple syrup....or a combonation of all kinds of flavours.....or is it totally different?
Have you tasted it Revvell? Have you ordered the product? if so...whats the flavour?

I don't order from them. Whole Foods carries a light and a dark one. I've gotten the light. Not the dark...yet. Maybe it has it's own flavor. *shrugs* Hell, I USE light and couldn't tell you what else it tastes like.

Yes... it might have its own flavor....thats why i am asking if anyone has bought THIS particular agave becuse it is VERY dark....darker than any i have seen.
So... if someone has tried it....i would love to know what kind of taste it has. thanks

I'm not sure if this will help because it's difficult to describe: I would say it's a deeper, richer, and heavier flavor as opposed to the light, clean flavor of the light agave. It does not have as distinct or pronounced flavor as, say, maple; it would be closer to a sugar syrup than maple or blackstrap molasses, for example. However it is not tasteless like sugar syrup :). It's closer to a *very* light molasses, if that makes sense.
I would use it in heavier recipes, or recipes with lots of strong-flavored ingredients (like carob/chocolate, cake or pie recipes), whereas the light version would be for more delicate things, and is great as a honey substitute. You can taste the difference if you use it in iced teas, for example, or lemonades -- for these, I'd use the light.
Hope that makes some sort of sense ;D
