Easy does it in the touch-‘n-go world of home-blade chocolate using a Champion Juicer for your grinder... & the kitchen oven as master roaster (accurate temp gauge not included) in the Mast Bros B’lyn crib apt – all part of the allure & lottery-aspect to their bars. But will they be able move their low-tech rep into their new commercial play-space down the road?
Appearance 3.9 / 5
|Surface:||clean lines up front; subsurface burbling on back|
|Temper:||soft brush plate|
|Snap:||unusual hi-frequency for a 55%; early bloom on the inside the reason why|
Aroma 7.4 / 10
central command: semisweet center-point chocolate baked in earthen leather / vanilla of medium-hi coffee roast; opens up to much of its Ecuador base (spiced grains)
Mouthfeel 8.6 / 15
Flavor 41.3 / 50
brown sugar -> chocolate cinnamon -> vanilla chocolate -> simple chocolate -> light passing charcoal casting its shadow -> white flower bud opens to close on a chocolate chip finish
Quality 15.8 / 20
Continues Mast Bros’ house-style for M.O.R. chocolate flavor in its single origin & blended bars. Once again the brunt is on the roast, fairly dark & deep, equalizing & compressing highs & lows into the midrange, as well as to compensate all that sugar. The net result more robust than expected from a bar with 45% sugar content.
