Expense-account-blowout of a pickup here! A 16.9 oz bottle will put you back about $13, but hey, Iím incredibly wealthy and who gives a shit. Oh speaking of, what a dumbass name for ANY food product! Soft Shit, yep, thatís going to be a winner?!? Once you get past the name and turbidity, this is a real nice sipper. It has high vanilla notes and quite malty--some bourbon pervades throughout. Probably not worth the price of entry, but a nice and expensive random pickup from my favorite bottle shoppe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark with a sticky and dissipating foam head. The aroma has vanilla, cocoa, toasted malts, and slight smoke malt character. In the flavor I noticed vanilla, chocolate, mild bitterness, dry malt complexity. The finish had a dry smoked malt favor, bitterness, cocoa, and a yeast taste. Overall the beverage stands tall but is not very drinkable.

Alright, I donít think EvilTwin is a good, valuable contributor to the brewing industry, but here we go.
Pours a thick black with a solid tan thick sheet of foam, leaves lots of lace. Smells immediately like vanilla and coffee with lots of toasted malts. Nice, sweet nose. As it breathes, a little too much CO2 is released and the nose goes through a sharp, chemical phase. Flavor is sweet and dark, lots of vanilla, some bits of mallow and nougat. Plenty of dark chocolate. Thick bodied with low carb and a dry, syrupy finish. Pretty good beer overall. I donít generally care for vanilla in my beer, but this is done well.

Iíd been looking for this for a while and I finally found one in the deep recesses of a packieís fridge section. Pours dark black with lacing that lingers. Super intense dark cocoa nose w/ some mint that is odd but becomes addicting as you drink it. Thinner body with a bitter mouthfeel that stays. Notes of anise, vanilla, and roasted nuts on the back of the palate. Tasty.
