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)

Benzai (8233) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2012
50cl bottle @ Beer Temple. Opaque, almost pitch black color with a slight dark red glare coming through when held into the light. Full sized, lightly creamy, light brown head that lasts for a long time. Smell roasted malts, hops, some coffee, a hint of mocha. Taste malts, roasted malts, slightly burned, bitterness, hops and lightly some fruits. Medium body, medium to full carbonation. Very nice beer!

Cybercat (3332) - Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Strong aroma is quite hoppy and woody, and has a hint of sour orange. Pours a stout-like sable with a thick and persistent tan head. Satisfying flavor has roast malt, hoppy and woody notes with hints of cloves and sour citrus. Smooth, lively texture has good body and fizz, and leaves a hoppy, smoky finish. No risk here of a bad beer here!

Bottle, bought @ Fish’n’Beer, Cph.
Pours completely black with a wonderful, fat, creamy, beige cappucino head. Aroma has peach, roasted malts, light chocolate, hazelnuts. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very lovely, very balanced even if very bitter as well. Roasted malts and some sweet chocolate in the centre. Piney, citrusy and pachy bitterness and hops. Very good!

stefannilssons (1462) - SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2012
Otroligt jämn, rund och välbalanserad öl med en kraftig beska som stundtals sticker till ordentligt. Slutsats: en bra jävla öl helt enkelt.

sunevdj (3176) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle at home. Black version. Pours an opaque black with a beige head. Bitter and dry. At first lots of hops aromas of spruce, plant sap and hints of resin. Later the hops aromas or joined by hints of toasted malts. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Long bitter finish with more hops and some roasted malts. Good stuff.

BenH (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a thick beige that sticks around. Nice aroma, pine, grapefruit and coffee. Taste has similar flavours but perhaps is less hoppy and the rich roasty malt comes through harder. Medium body with a long very bitter finish that I quite like, sticks around for ages. Very nice
