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.

12 oz brown bottle - not dated

Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout filled my snifter with an opaque black hue that formed a 1 1/2 finger tan head. The head reduced to a collar of foam and spotty lacing was formed on the walls of my glass. The nose was of coffee beans followed by chocolate and roasted malts. The taste matches the smell with coffee and chocolate upfront. The sweet flavor of malt is next with just a little bitterness from the hops at the finish. Mouth feel is a little smooth and somewhat chewy. Medium body for its style with a light carbonation.

Total Eclipse is a 'lighter weight' American Double/ Imperial Stout making it an easy drinker. My first brew from Maumee Bay and I like it.

This is a pretty new brewery and my first beer out of them.

Jet black with a pretty nice mocha head that retains fairly well.

Smell is pure chocolate with a small amount of vanilla and oak but is oddly watery.

Taste follows suit. There's a lot that wants to go on here but the brew is noticeable watery and the flavors are rather muted.

Feel is decently creamy but again, watery

Overall, I'm really disappointed. This beer wanted to break out and be great but it simply couldn't pull it off with the muted flavors.

Decent pour, hoping for more of a fluffy, longer lasting head. Sweet milk chocolate, rich coffee on the nose. Something tastes not quite right for a coffee stout. Bitter, fruity berries finish the taste. It's not exactly off putting but not my favorite profile from the coffee. Good mouthfeel, silky. Glad I just bought one bottle.
