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)

TheJestersBeer (2034) - 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)

Habanero (2479) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Bottled. Pours deep brown nearly black with a large, creamy, beige head. Excellent lacing. Nose of roasted malts, a bit o smoke and fruity hops. Fairly sweet flavor with roasted malts, bread, citrus, grapefruit and coffee. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up dry and solid bitter. A nice one.

lusikka (6027) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 14, 2012
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bitter hops and some coffee. Flavour of strong roasted malts, dark chocolate, grapefruit, bitter hops and some smoke-like notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a roasty bitter finish. Long lingering bitterness just like on the other Russian Roulette. A tad too thin, but still this hop profile is great.

mjs (4490) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2012
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20120421) The beer poured almost black and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had roasted malts, hops and chocolate. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, ash, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. The taste was disappointmen - way too much burnt malts.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2012
(Bottled) Almost black with a medium, firm and beige head. Aroma is both fruity-hoppy, and roasted, lightly licoricey and dried-fruity. Flavor is burned-malty and ashy, with moderate licorice presence. Quite bitter, long finish. Medium body, ashy-burned palate with quite soft CO2. Promising aroma, but way too burned flavor for enjoyment. 3645

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
Bottled. A black beer with a lazing dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, chocolate, roasted malt, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of rosted malt, chocolate, hops, and lemons, leading to a bitter finish.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of chrisv10. Pours an opaque deep dark coffeeish brown with an beige head. The nose has lovely citrusy aroma hops. Medium body, subtle roast, great juicy aroma hops. But as with the pale version this is simply too dry for me and appears unbalanced. I prefer my IPA’s with a little more residual sweetness - this is simply too dry. 020412
