I had this amazing beer while vacationing at Disneyworld. I have since tried to acquire more with no luck. Apperently it is only made for Disneyworld.

Black in color with minimal light penetration. There’s a fingernail of brown on top. The aroma is of maple and salty bacon. I’m tasting maple and dark chocolate. The mouth is lightly oily and smooth. Not getting much in the way of bacon, but it is delicious.

I really don't know what I had expected. Recently tried my first smoked beer. It was Ft. Hill Brewing's Rauchbier. Holy shit that was tasty. And then had a Marzen from Schlenkerla. Honestly this beer is okay for a stout. If you drink Guinness? Stop. Drink this instead. Anyone who thinks this is a thick stout hasn't had a stout.

Now I will say that this beer is not one I would find myself enjoying on a regular basis when available. My personal tastes are more towards Harpoon's Craic or Founders Dirty Bastard or Smuttynose Old Brown Dog.

This is at best a good beer to introduce people into craft beers in hopes to give insight as to what might be out there.

Edit: forgot to mention. When pouring from a tap. Close to no head. :( You always gotta have a little head.

Very interesting beer. The bacon flavouring gives it a slightly smoky aroma and taste, which mingles very nicely with the classic bittersweetness of the classic stout flavours of coffee and chocolate. Good stuff!

Almost no head. No biggie.

Smell is average for an imperial stout.

Taste is not bad. Strong coffee, subtle chocolate, very distant flavors of maple and bacon...which I approve of.


Taste is on part with any imperial stout. Perhaps slightly sweeter.

Feel is good man. Feels good man.

Overall, I give this brew a 3.75.... Not too crazy about the bacon craze but the maple and bacon of this is very subtle. This is the best stout available at epcot currently. Probably a little too sweet for my taste but if that's your that's your thing you wont be disappointed. The only better stout you will find at the Walt Disney world Resort is yeti at animal kingdom.

On tap at Epcot,poured into plastic cup.
Thinnish feel for a stout, but very tasty. Sweet and salty. Can't wrong with Bacon in a beer (or anything for that matter).

Had on tap at Disney's Epcot Center as part of a beer sampler.

L: Pours a jet black with a thin brown head.

S: : Maple syrup and roasted malts. Coffee and sweets.

T/F: This was actually better than I'd expected. It is a pleasant Imperial Stout and the maple syrup added a nice sweetness that wasn't overpowering. The bacon was barely noticeable... with maybe a slight salty touch. Not bad, and with the usual stout flavors in the background. Mild carbonation and pretty smooth.

O: Overall better than anticipated and fun to try as an 'event only' brew. We may have reached the limits of what bacon can teach us but this is one I wouldn't mind having again under more standard sampling conditions.

Billed as "new" and offered on tap as part of a flight or alone in a flight-sized tumbler at the Smokehouse in Epcot's American Adventure area ostensibly as part of the 2015 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. Medium bodied, lightly sweet -- the maple part, I suppose -- and somewhat smoky (the bacon part, no doubt). Not bad, but not my cuppa tea when it comes to imperial stouts. I wouldn't go out of my way to try this again, but I can see how some stout devotees might.
