The Bunyip is back, crawling from the dark abyss to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting drinker. This beast-inspired imperial stout is released each year at winter’s peak and is the biggest of the dark beers brewed at the Woolshed Brewery on the banks of the Murray.
Jet black in appearance, with a decent size chocolate brown head, finding the Bunyip in the waters where it's said to lurk would be impossible. But, those stale and murky waters, the beer is much more pleasant, with dark chocolate, dried raisins and currants, some roast and a decent hint of vanilla leading off on the nose. The thick mouthfeel of the first sip takes a sweet approach, with the dark chocolate and roast coming through in equal measures, followed by vanilla and dried fruits, balanced by a slightly bitter and drying finish.
