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.

Really nice and balanced breakfast stout. Pours jet black, nice head that fades a bit quickly but spot on color, carb, and lacing. Lactose and coffee definitely dominate the nose but the flavor here is really well balanced. Really nice breakfast stout I think I prefer to Founders which I generally feel is a bit too heavy on the coffee.

Bottle into a Boulevard Tank 7 tulip. Pours a dark brown and settles black in th glass. About 1 finger of fizzy, khaki-colored foam initially, which bubbled down to a lacing after a minute or two. No head whatsoever after 5 minutes. Lots of carbonation bubbles clinging to the bottom and sides of the glass. Big nose on this guy - I could smell it as I was pouring. Strong notes of milk chocolate, lactose, and coffee with hints of caramel and vanilla. On the taste, bittersweet baker's chocolate, bold coffee, bitter oats, and a touch of lactose and vanilla on the back end. On the sweeter side, and very tasty. I am getting a bit of a metallic taste on the finish, but I may be drinking it a little too warm so I'll let that slide. In terms of feel, it's good albeit a tad thin & oily. Definitely thick enough the carry the flavor and alcohol. Overall, not bad at all but not my favorite.

Pours a dark chocolate color. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor is coffee, chocolate and a creamy oatmeal. The flavor is nice but the mouthfeel is a little thick. Kind of hard to describe like a rich thick liquid that turns carbonated on your tongue. Not the biggest fan of this but overall this is a tasty brew.

This is a pretty drink that opens all black and brown, as it should, with nice little bubbles. The aroma is very roasty, malty and coffee.

The taste of a thick, rich, coffee experience. The booze comes a little in the after taste. This is a very good beer from a brewer I normally do not care for enough to give blind faith to. Good one, people.

A: Upfront big coffee aroma, followed by deep roasted malts that have lots of chocolate/coffee character, faint vanilla aroma, with a light sweet finish.

A: Black, totally opaque with moderate beige head that dissipates pretty quickly. Moderate lacing evident.

T: Moderate coffee flavor, followed by lots of semi-sweet bakers chocolate from the malts. The beer has a semi-dry finish with a light bitterness.

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty solid; the beer has a nice upfront coffee aroma, followed by lots of chocolate malts. Since the coffee flavor is solid, but not overly complex – the beer could use another layer to make it better and even more tasty.
