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.

Fantastic stout. Well balanced chocolate and coffee. Starts off a bit on the sweet side, but a balancing dark chocolate bitterness comes through on the finish. Mouthfeel is superb for the style. Thick and silky smooth throughout with low soft carbonation. Carries the flavors well. Espresso and creamy oats come through more as it warms. I'll definitely be buying more of this.

Appearance is brown-black with a tan head that fades and some nice lacing.

Nose is sweet lactose, with peanut brittle, black coffee, and fresh hops.

Taste is more bitter than sweet, with dark coffee and sweet milk, clove and buttered croissant.

Mouthfeel is easy, with mild carbonation and balanced alcohol. Warm finish.

Overall, this is not bad at all!

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.
