Total Eclipse Black Ale has been described as similar to a light, dry stout. Characterized by its distinctive hop aroma and rich, black color, Total Eclipse redefines the way you think about a dark ale. Brewed at a low temperature to create a refreshingly dry finish, Total Eclipse uses only the finest two row malted barley and hops grown in the great Pacific Northwest. This combination results in a clean, crisp, hand-crafted experience.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Black pour with tan head and good lacing. Aroma is burnt malt...like a light stout. Flavor is a modest stout...malty with burnt grain most powerful. Good body and finish. A good light stout overall.

Not a bad black ale. Roastier than most. Hops are piney with a sharp bitterness at the end. Dark, almost burned coffee flavor. Tried with Jess at the Nebraska Beerfest in 2016.

Draft to pint glass Toasted malt, bread, molasses, earth. Black, 1cm frothy light brown head, lots of lacing. Nuts, toasted malt, loads of bitterness despite the light IBUs.

bytemesis (6977) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear black with a small beige head, dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent lacing. Aroma is quite roasty, ashtray hints of coffee. Flavor follows, quite light sweet, fully bitter, roasty, burned malts and coffee grounds. Some acidity, lingering unpleasant sharp bitterness. Medium body.

"another pleasant surprise after the hoppy claus debacle. a solid porter, if not one of the best, with a nice balance and chocolate hoppy flavor. aroma is typical. body is thin-medium."

monk191 (1777) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2014
A very good black ale. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of vanilla and coffee and roasted coconut. More vanilla and coffee upfront, followed by the roasted coconut, and a bit of bitter chocolate in the finish and aftertaste.

On tap at the brewery. Pours darkest red with a khaki head. Faint aroma, dark caramel, slight candied fruit. Flavor is molasses-forward, slight burnt coffee, piney hop tinge.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2014
bottle, thanks baerwaldt. an older bottle so no surprise that it was lacking carbonation, very close to black; aroma of nutty malt and cocoa powder; some red berry flavours and more nut, light sweetness and still a good hit of bitterness

gyllenbock (8003) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Sample at SF Beer Week Opening Gala 2014. (my first one from this brewery) Almost black with a small head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, grapefruit, some pineapple and coffee. The finish was dry and bitter.
