3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Soft Dookie :) was a great beer - really lookin forward to this. However, the cherry aspect was too sour and acidic to mesh well with the vanilla and chocolate awesomeness. By the end I still enjoyed it, but toned down sour (or just a hint of sweet cherry instead) would have been sooooo much better."

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with a medium creamy beige head. Nose is shoe polish-like leather tones, vanilla, dark chocolate, hints of cocoa and red fruits. Taste is clove, vanilla, cinnamon, dark chocolate, citric peel, bitter herbs and hints of caramel and cherry yoghurt. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. Not really working for, this one - the sour-ish fruity touch doesn’t rhyme too well with the rest of the beer.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Pours pitch black with a small tan fizz. Smells strongly of the vanilla and sour cherries. Taste is medicinal cherries; strongly tart cherry flavor. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Evil Twin Soft Xmas aka Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top finishes with a prickly medicinal flavor.
