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)

Lukaduke (2769) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a rich black color with big fluffy tan head that aces beautifully... Big hop aromas of pineapple, citrus and pine... with subtle notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavors are bright and bitter on the start... a good dose of fresh grass, pine and grapefruit... the dark burnt malts slowly take over bringing flavors of burnt coffee, bitter chocolate and a int of black licorice.

NikkTwist (2135) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle. Put it to my head and got the dark one. Reads as a black IPA. Black pour with a thick tan head. Lots of lace. Very bitter black hops - but wonderfully so! Heavy and dark. Bit smoother than it should be. Very much full of bitter burned notes. Minimal fruit. Medium thick palate. Not for the faint of heart but quite good actually.

Beersiveknown (4408) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle at craig’s, thanks! Dark brown with a tan head that collapses to a lacing, pithy lemon rind, dehusked malt, roast barley and biting carbonation.

In bottle. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, roasty malt, dark chocolate and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice.

Linnet (1387) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2012
Ar: chocolate, heavy notes of it, cocoa, chocolate bars, vanilla, some roastiness, fruity hops, some notes of coffee, faint but in there, paired with faint notes of licorice. Ap: Black colour, medium beige head, some lacing. F: licorice, ashy, burnt espresso, big bite, but better balanced with malts than its twin, There are fruity notes of hops in there, but the heavier malt profile subdues them. Finish is very dry and astringent. M: Average. T: I quite like this one.
