Finally! Yes, apple. But above all, a delicious snd smooth stout. Nicely thick, smooth mouthfeel and lightly boozy. Base gives nice amount of chocolaty roast, while the barrels add apple, wood, and some light fruity tartness. Nicely balanced, and tasty.

0.355l bottle from 'Beergium', bottled in May 2016, cellared for over three years. Pitch black with a thin, beige layer. Sweetish-malty, gently roasty aroma of praline, hazelnut, vanilla, some coffee and a touch of brandy. Fairly sweet, malty, gently roasty and a little fruity taste of praline, hazelnut, vanilla, mild coffee and brandy, followed by a long, gently roasty-bitter, quite warming and just a little boozy finish. Full body, smooth and oily mouthfeel, almost flat. Lovely beer, perfectly balanced, accompanied by delicious flavours from the barrel. Great Imperial Stout from Prairie again!

The side of Pappy van Winkle works quite well with it.
