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.

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.

A: 12 oz bottled Poured into a 16oz snifter, Although I've had it on tap poured into a pint glass as well. It's a black to brown body with a light brown head to it . The head after a moderate pour was about one fingers worth.

S: Chocolate, Mocha Coffee, Roasted nuts Cocoa Powder, slight boozey smell in the back.

T: Just like the smell, you get a big hit of Mocha in there and finish off with a the roasted malt flavor and a light taste from the alcohol warming.

M: Moderately thick and coats the mouth, which is to be expected from this type of beer.

Overall: This is easily my favorite Ohio stouts and arguably my all time favorite of the breakfast stout style (non-bourbon aged). It's right up there with Founders Breakfast Stout for sure, it'd be interesting to have a tasting of both of them back to back. This beer along with Amarillo Brillo and Maumee Bay's IPA just went to 12oz bottles a few weeks ago which was truly thrilling, and long awaited. I hope they bottle some of more of their brewery exclusives here in the near futue.

This beer more or less comes off as being some kind of coffee milkshake. It is probably the thickest beer I have ever had but it tastes like nothing more than coffee. It smells as if one is walking down the coffee aisle at the store and looks like motor oil. There was about a half an inch caramel head as well. I did not even taste the alcohol and these just kept going down so smoothly. Blown away that Maumee Bay did something so good.

Pours pitch black with nice lacing. Dark chocolate dominates the aroma with hints of bitter coffee and some sweetness. The flavor is amazing, lots of complexity. There's an almost milk chocolate sweetness followed by sharp coffee, deeply roasted malt and some hops. The mouthfeel is full not overly heavy, making this dangerously drinkable. The 9.1% ABV does not really come through. This is an extremely tasty beer but may have more coffee than you'd think, so it might be good early in the day or in preparation for a late night. I had it with dinner and couldn't sleep later on.

This is an incredible beer. Being as a live walking distance from Founders Brewery, I have had my fair share of Breakfast Stout. I was in Toledo on business and stopped in Maumee Bay Brewing and immediately the "breakfast stout" tag on this beer caught my eye. I hate to say it, but it's better than Founders. Incredible flavor. Heavy chocolate, chewy, with an almost caramel after taste. I left with a few four packs and it's just as good in bottles. Don't pass this up if you see it!
