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)

Inferior to its Golden counterpart, this Cascadian ale suffers on some lack of balance between the toastiness of malts and the hopping; making of it more of an hopped stout than a Black IPA. Russian Roulette Black IPA lacks a bit of personality, I think the brewers might have dared more.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 26, 2012
50 cl bottle from Ølkonsortiet. Pours black with a nice brown head. Aroma is pretty nice - sweet milk chocolate up front mixing with dark caramel and liqourice. Then a fresh punch of pungent hoppiness - piney, citrus zest, and pineapple. Very nice. The taste is more focused on the fruity hops instead of the malts. Very pungent grapefruit, pineapple and tangerine notes. Then the malts kick in with roasted notes and liquorice. The taste is very bold and raw, but the elements come together very nicely, especially the pungent hop profile is really good.

MOLA_DK (285) - DENMARK - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours black with a nice mocca head. Aroma is a nice mix of roasted malt and piney, fruity and grassy hops. Roasted malts and hops fight for first impact, malts win at first and then hops fight through. Long, lingering bitter finish. Like a schwartzbier on acid. Highly drinkable!

Bottle. Pours black with a creamy dense beige head. The aroma is exotic fruity hops, liquorice, light peach, passion fruit and some hard roasted malt. The flavour is quite bitter with notes of grapefruit peel, hard roasted malt, citrus, liquorice, coffee and ends up highly bitter. Really nice!
