Box Chocolate Review

Michael Mischer

Info Details
Country USA   (Oakland, CA)
Style New School      
A mashup of trendy & traditional add-ins, akin to a David Lynch film where everyone knows the accident is coming but feel propelled to watch anyways.
Presentation   3.1 / 5
molded kitsch
Aromas   4.4 / 5
a highlight – rich oils
Textures/Melt   6.8 / 10
Shells: some of the surest, hardest snap in existence
Centers: recovers adequately from shellacking put on them by the exterior walls
Flavor   31.3 / 50
taste points veer from soapy/astringent to saccharine soaked
Quality   17.1 / 30
Elaborate structures with balances often out of whack.
Couverture: Felchlin
The above refers to Mischer’s filled-chocolate work. He also crafts ‘Designer Bars’:
72% w/ Cayenne-Spiced Mango – a kludge match
72% w/ Orange - poorly integrated, & fighting it
72% w/ Blueberry/Dragon Fruit – polluted; a sprinkled lab dish w/ iron filings for the Van Allen Belts & an occasional planetary orb that tastes of an experiment gone bad, though short of all-out intergalactic disaster
Milk Choc w AlmondsFelchlin’s 38% Maracaibo Milk’ studded w/ roasted almond slivers; respectable collision of salt & sugar
65% w/ Nibs’
>72% w/ Spiced Almonds’
