The soul golem is a rough statue of a man made entirely from glaes. It is a massive construct, with broad powerful shoulders towering above you. An elongated, serpentine head sits atop a thick, tree trunk-like neck. Its two glowing eyes stare into space with the unfocused malice of the dead.

Hunting strategies

These creatures appear to be immune to all forms of normal damage from sorcery, health-damaging spells (like Harm and Pain), all elemental sources of damage, and all curses. Furthermore, they are puncture-resistant and cannot be kneecapped with Cheap Shots. Holy spells and holy effects (such as holy water flares, Voln-based holy damage abilities, and various cleric secondary effects) still damage them.

Other information

Soul golems have the ability to remove Lifekeep from a corpse:

A soul golem extends its glaes hand into your chest.  After a brief pause, the chest piece of the golem glows slightly brighter.  Your senses tingle slightly, and you almost think you hear a faint, sinister laugh.
You feel the preservation on your spirit fade.

Creature maneuver that can be blocked by a shield:

A soul golem suddenly charges you and tries to push you into a steam column!
You are unable to get out of the way as the golem's massive hands slam into you!
You fall into a steam column!
 ... 53 points of damage!
 Steaming ocular fluid cooks eyeball evenly. Hors d'oeuvres anyone?

Soul golem boxes feature a unique trap: the lock difficulty is unreadable and changes with each pick attempt. They do not have conventional traps.
