Today’s the last of the three Mast Brothers single origin chocolate bars, the Madagascar, that I bought at Cocoa Cinnamon, a local coffee shop. I reviewed the Belize last Friday, and the Papua New Guinea on Monday.
Wrapper description: “This organic cacao is sourced from a single farm in Madagascar’s northwest coast. Bold, with notes of blood orange, raspberry, and red wine.”
The Madagascar looked quite shiny and broke with a sharp snap. Its melt was fuzzy and with no tongue-coating properties.
It started with rich caramel notes that quickly gave way to an incredibly punchy, bright fruitiness that shone through. It was sweet and tangy – I placed it as passionfruit, though the wrapper notes went with blood orange and raspberry.
I am totally sold on Mast Brothers chocolates. They are pricey but totally worth it – every bar I had great flavor intensity and complexity. Another ZOMG!
