NOTE!! This entry is for the dark version. If your beer pours golden your rating must be put under this beer:

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)

dEnk (4199) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity and floral hops, slight sweaty touch. Flavour is medium hop bitterness with loads of flavour, fruity, floral, nelson madness. Some malty notes but it’s the hops that shine here. Great stuff.

obguthr (4601) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Licorice, pine needle, soil, and grapefuit nose. Black, thick tan sticky head. Charred oak, licorice and pine needle flavor. Charred malt bitterness and pine needle lingers too long on the palate. Somewhat resinous, but full of both malt and hop flavor.

500mL split with GT2. Looking forward to this one. Disappointed immensely, doesn’t even taste like a beer or coherent beverage. Just harsh, papery bitterness over the top mixed with stale, specialty grain driven brown IPA. Undrinkable and not worth the calories. So much acrid flavor.

GT2 (9359) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2013
500mL Black IPA edition. I guess you can’t know for sure what bottle you have a priori. Pours a deep black with a massive coffee head. Huge lacing. Nose at first is heavy detergent/volatiles, plastic, olive brine. Doesn’t clear up for quite awhile- 10+ minutes. Taste is extremely papery, astringent, soapy, more plastic. Holy monkey this is not good. Palate destroying paper, oversteeped grain tannins, ultra astringent. Too bad...$13 drain pour. Fiance rating: 2.0

mixmasterob (970) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Black pour with a big frothy dark brown head. Left tons of lace. Aroma was big time roasted malt and sticky piney hops. Slight hints of vanilla sweetness and spent coffee grounds. Flavors were big time bitter coffee with notes of citrus and dark malt. Bitter finish. Carbonation light, medium body. Not bad but I’ve had others in the style I prefer. I bought this thinking it was a normal IPA. Wrong chamber.

(500ml bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a medium tan/grey head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, grass, and caramel. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, ash, pine, citrus, and grass with a dry, bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium plus beige head. The aroma is roasted malts, earthy, citrus, resiny hops with some dark chocolate. The flavor has a nice roasted malt base, some char, earthy bitterness that lasts through the finish. This is pretty much what I would expect in a black ipa. This could use a touch more flavoring hops to go with the bitterness. I enjoyed the concept of not knowing.
