Congratulations, you have just managed to get your hands on Russian Roulette - a rare kind of collaboration between Evil Twin Brewing (Denmark) and OMNIPOLLO (Sweden).

This beer would best be described as an IPA with a twist. A twist that will reveal itself first after you "bust some caps".

One thing remains sure however, if you like hops and the lush texture of a well crafted beer this will have you smiling as you face your destiny.

Good luck,
Jeppe (Evil Twin Brewing) and Henok (OMNIPOLLO)

Wow, despite a Best Before 2014 on the label, this beer is still very good. Surprisingly, the hop character is still full fledged. Appearance was amazing with a huge thick creamy tan slow to settle head. I’m further impressed that they’ve been able to tweak it so that the hops blend so well with the roast and dark malt qualities. Very easy drinking brew.

"Black IPA, orange peel, pine/spruce and roasted malts up front and center. The aroma is fan freakin tastic, and the flavor is not far behind. Done really well, this is what I want in a black ipa. dry. piney, hoppy, roasted, chocolatey goodness."

Dark brown colored pour. Huge tan head that takes up 2/3 of the glass. Some lacing when it eventually dies down. Huge hoppy aroma. Some dark malt, roast, coffee and chocolate notes. Chocolaty taste with some hop notes. Some coffee, citrus. Bitter finish.

(bottle - 500 ml) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Hoppy aroma with some light malt. Flavor is overly bitter without much malt to compliment it. Overly carbonated and just kind of plain.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Extremely lively pour, with an effervescent brown head dominating a dark brown body. Aroma is very hoppy, sweet tropical fruits and light pine. Intense hop character on the palate, papaya sweetness, mango skins, pine; the hops pretty much steal the show, completely dominating the toffee-ish dark malts. Long and extremely bitter finish.

GJF (1397) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Oddly disappointing for me. Black pour. Mildly hoppy nose. Flavors are quite intriguing at first, but the finish really becomes unbalanced after a few sips--very astringent and burnt finish.

Bottle pour opaque black with huge foaming tan head. Nose sweet malt, toffee, slight biscuit and dank hop. Big bitter bite up front. Some roasted flavor and then some minimal sweet malt. Astringent bitter finish. As it warms, some of the astringency calms down and flavors begin to come through.

Advocate_Ames (539) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Pours dark with a defined sticky foam head. The aroma is of pine and floral hops, lightly roasted malts, and carmel malts. In the flavor there was a medium level of bitterness, mild roasted malts, weak burnt carmel tones, and a nice citrus taste. Overall a good beverage but nothing profound stands out other than the hops.
