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.

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.

This is okay, but anyone claiming it is as good or better than Founders Breakfast Stout is out of their damn mind. Aroma is decent...kinda like an espresso & cream, but it's a bit overcarbed with a metallic, slightly sour berry-like finish that detracts from the coffee and chocolate notes. I also wish there were more agressive roast flavors and the sweetness was toned down a bit. I recommend having this on the cold side rather than cellar temp. Again, this is no Founders Breakfast Stout, but more like a poor man's Moloko.
