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)

Linnet (1029) - Umeå, 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.

TheJestersBeer (1935) - SWEDEN - APR 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown, with a brown head. Very hoppy, heavily toasted aroma, spruce, chocolate, coffee beans, grapefruit, smoke, ashes, tobacco, passion fruit. Off-dry, full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Very hoppy, bitter taste, roasted malt, chocolate, spruce, pine resin, tobacco, coffee, passion fruit, ashes, grapefruit peerl, smoke. As with the light one, this is also off balance in terms of hops vs body, but works better. The roasted malts make up a better counterweight, providing better balance. (2012-04-15)
