Maumee Bay Brewing Company’s Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout is a hearty meal in a glass. As it pours, it devours the light and your glass is filled with darkness. This massive beer brewed with espresso beans (from Flying Rhino in Toledo, OH), oatmeal, and lactose offers a rich and complex taste that begs to be savored. With a smooth carbonation and luscious roasted malt flavor, you will fade to black as you slowly sip this finely crafted brew. We recommend serving at 45-50 degrees in your favorite snifter. It’s nothing but total bliss from Maumee Bay Brewing Co.

Nice coffee style stout... Has nice body and a nice robust flavor without being too bitter or off balance. I think the 9% ABV is pretty well hidden. Although some booze is presence. Lacks the all world creaminess and coffee profile of founders. Still def worth a grab of you see it~

I think this bottle might be infected, mild, but something just seems off.

This beer was great to look at and had a very nice nose. Unfortunately , it was bitter and acidic and tart in an unpleasant way - not an appealing way. Mouthfeel was then. Overall a decent beer but nothing that need be tried more than once.

Big. Dark. Big dark, big dark, big. Black coffee, toffee, roasted malts, nuts, dried fruit, vanilla, pumpernickel bread, and everything else an imperial stout should be.

Pours black in the glass with the perfect, thick, fluffy, almost marsmallow-y head foam.

This is a fierce brew. Tried more than my share of samples at the Columbus beer fest, and going to look for this in a bottle somewhere soon.

With FBS as, likely my #1 beer of all time, this one honestly ties it. i'd wager if you had them both back-to-back, you'd not differences, but it'd be a wash...seriously outstanding...

now if only they'd distribute to Dayton,

12 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, plum, light vanilla, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, light dark fruit, light vanilla, light char, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial coffee stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Look: Pours jet black. Finger of head with nice lacing. Medium brown head.

Smell: Coffee, dark fruit, chocolate, and maybe a little vanilla.

Taste: Very nice. Follows the nose. Roasted malts. Lots of coffee and dark fruit. Lactose sweetness. Some chocolate notes.

Feel: Creamy and smooth. Medium to full bodied. Very drinkable.

Overall: Excellent. I've had this numerous times on tap at the brew pub and from the bottle. Never disappoints. Definitely Maumee Bay's flagship beer.
