Saying this was built using materials from the hardware dept would be an insult to Home Depot. Jacques Torres, subcontractor, & 1 man wrecking crew.
Appearance   3.1 / 5
doom buggy
Color: black
Surface: brick w/ JT's now standard autograph plastered all over the mold
Temper: oil slick
Snap: way too brittle for any % let alone a 60; pinholes on the inside
Aroma   3.4 / 10
color tells the story: a house fire, burnt & Dutched - smoking rubber & smoldering vinyl over crushed coconut & tobacco; charred peony in the backyard & peanut oil (probably from a dirty machine or countertop)
Mouthfeel   10.6 / 15
Texture: waxed butter; smooth for a 60%, virtually no powder
Melt: staggered & sticky
Flavor   38.2 / 50
cherry bush flushed by cocoa & coconut -> waxes caramel + heavy cacáo butter-cream fronted in spice bread -> minted top note enters to dominate finish
Quality   13.8 / 20
Pastry chef dipping his bon-bons... the chocolate equivalent of tea-bagging. Still, JT's "personal" 'House Blend' remains his signature bar: a sugared ramshackle stranded on a desert island of tall palm trees dropping coconuts overhead.

ING: cocoa mass, sugar, cacáo butter, soya lecithin, vanilla; CBS ~ 2:5:6
