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.

Thanks to BobSacamano12 for this bottle…yes, it’s clearing out the back of the fridge week! No idea how this one got lost. It sounds good. 12 oz. bottle split with no one.

The pour is as expected: jet black, with enough carbonation to thwart my bubble-averse daughter. Nose is as underwhelming as Atlanta in August, with weak coffee & faintly sweet malts vying with, well, not much else. Meh.

Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout is like that Uncle everyone has: not scary, or offensive, but not an experience you want to repeat. Or perhaps even finish. Grainy roast dominates in a water-driven kind of way, with a light sweetness accompanied by the jarring twang of a hillbillies’ bango. And that aftertaste, that aftertaste is where this beer fails. Finish twists into bonfire ashes with a slice of dark fruit that’s just starting to over ripen. The beer I could stomach. The after effects are too much to handle.

Clearly there is something turning in this beer, & turning the wrong way. I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve never craved stone fruit roasted in hot ashes. My first drain-pour in quite some time.
