Mast Brothers Chocolate

by Michael Langlois

Somewhere in the dark heart of Brooklyn, the Mast Brothers are making chocolate.

Not just any chocolate, but the intense, vivid chocolate of my most fevered cacao-inspired dreams.  Using the powers bestowed upon them by their mighty beards, they personally handle every step of production from beans to sublime final product.

The experience comes in waves once you put a piece in your mouth.  The snap and temper is perfect when you pluck a square from the slightly glossy bar, and the melt when it hits your tongue is gradual and smooth.  The first taste is that of any excellent dark chocolate, but as the melt progresses, the flavor simply unfolds in your mouth, unpacking itself into something that could not possibly have been contained in that one square.  Most bars are blended with aromatics and spices that perfectly complement the sophisticated chocolate choice for the bar, and the finish of the cacao itself is so deep that it actually becomes a berry note at the end.

It’s no exaggeration to say that it will change the way you experience chocolate.  Seriously.

I’m down to five bars from the original ten, which is sad.  But at the same time, I only eat these with friends, so that’s five amazing shared experiences down, and five to go.  And when I run out, well, I know where they come from.

And now, so do you.
