Right, so I have not gotten around to trying many new things lately–just you’re run-of-the-mill Amedei, Domori, and Valrhona (just kidding, I am blessed to have access to such fine offerings).

Anyway, got my hands on a bar of Madecasse 75%, which is a bean-to-bar coming out of Madagascar. Now, prior to trying this bar, I had expected the usual: citrus, red fruit, brightness, and your usualy “Madagascaness”. However, I was quite perplexed by this one and still cannot decide whether or not I really ‘like’ it. I tried it with my wife, a fellow chocophile, and we both immediately thought toasted bread. The citrus is still there, but it is more like in the form of marmalade. The bar has a definite uniqueness about it, and it will probably require several more tastings to truly qualify the mysteriousness that I have for the time being called toasted bread.

Wanted to know if anyone had any experiences with this brand.
