Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

I've had this on-tap a year or two ago, so it's nice to see how this is bottled. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours black with a mocha head; head fades quickly but leaves nice retention and decent lacing. The aromas are full of milk chocolate and roasted coffee. Lots of vanilla and expresso. There's some smoke and tobacco in the mix as well. Flavors are rich and bittersweet. The black coffee really does shine. The milk chocolate gives this one its sweetness. There's no heat going on. There's tons of chocolate malts as well. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of full-bodied. It's still creamy, fluffy, and smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

This is a really well done coffee stout. It's up there with the best coffee stouts out there. Recommended.

S-chocolate, coffee, molasses,dark fruit, dark malt

T-dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, coffee

F-medium body with light carbonation, smooth

O-decent stout, but flavors just a little awkward together and a little on the sweet side, not in a class with FBS

This beer is so close to Founders Breakfast Stout. This is an exceptional beer and I wish there was a way to purchase it in PA. Pours a very think dark brown color with a very large head. The aroma of chocolate and coffee fills the room. The taste is very distinct and full of rich flavors.

I highly recommend this beer.
