Tasted our first Mast Brothers Chocolate last night… incroyable. My notes:
Sweet battles savory. Dark and gamey, nutty and bitter. It chips like slate and lets off the most satisfying crack between your teeth—think the exact opposite of a Hersey’s bar. I hate Halloween, and I hate Halloween candy, but, if this was handed out, I would gladly wear a costume and work the neighborhood. This includes the hand-made dirty tampon costume that a girl wore to my high school, resulting in her suspension.
Paired deliciously with a mineral-rich, bruiser of a Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon, which in the this case was a 2006 Goose Ridge Cab Sauv from the Columbia Valley ($22). The best part is this chocolate doesn’t need to be followed by a bombastically sweet, overly extracted red wine. The sea salt was masterful.
Our friend Kristin Campbell is to thank for this delicious discovery; purveyor of all things cool in Brooklyn that she is. Thanks, KC!
