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)

TheJestersBeer (2059) - - 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)

Dark brown colored pour. Huge tan head that takes up 2/3 of the glass. Some lacing when it eventually dies down. Huge hoppy aroma. Some dark malt, roast, coffee and chocolate notes. Chocolaty taste with some hop notes. Some coffee, citrus. Bitter finish.

zach8270 (3466) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2014
(bottle - 500 ml) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Hoppy aroma with some light malt. Flavor is overly bitter without much malt to compliment it. Overly carbonated and just kind of plain.

DuffMan (6735) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Extremely lively pour, with an effervescent brown head dominating a dark brown body. Aroma is very hoppy, sweet tropical fruits and light pine. Intense hop character on the palate, papaya sweetness, mango skins, pine; the hops pretty much steal the show, completely dominating the toffee-ish dark malts. Long and extremely bitter finish.

GJF (1248) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Oddly disappointing for me. Black pour. Mildly hoppy nose. Flavors are quite intriguing at first, but the finish really becomes unbalanced after a few sips--very astringent and burnt finish.

drsordr (1055) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle pour opaque black with huge foaming tan head. Nose sweet malt, toffee, slight biscuit and dank hop. Big bitter bite up front. Some roasted flavor and then some minimal sweet malt. Astringent bitter finish. As it warms, some of the astringency calms down and flavors begin to come through.

Advocate_Ames (428) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Pours dark with a defined sticky foam head. The aroma is of pine and floral hops, lightly roasted malts, and carmel malts. In the flavor there was a medium level of bitterness, mild roasted malts, weak burnt carmel tones, and a nice citrus taste. Overall a good beverage but nothing profound stands out other than the hops.

fidelis83 (1948) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Black pour with a tall frothy tan head that hangs around a long time. Aroma is chocolate, nutty notes, dark caramel, citrus and pine hops. Flavor is dark caramel, fruity, berry-like notes, chocolate, toast, sort of woody/husky grain, a little gingerish spice, pine and grapefruit. Nice creamy, slightly syrupy feel throughout, light to medium, somewhat sharp and blanketing carbonation suits the beer well. Really good stuff.

Beer4000 (4467) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
500 ml bottle. Black body with a big, creamy beige head. Aroma has dark malt, coffee, citric fruit and pine. Flavor is sweet, not very roasted dark malt, quite bitter, citric fruit, pine and a bit rustic in aftertaste. Fine body and very pleasant all the way really.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. A dense beige head leaves lacings. More or less black body, looking really good. The aroma is lightly roasted, with some chocolate. Green pine cones too. Roasted and bitter flavor with pine cones, citruspeel and some chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied and soft on the palate, and with a roasted and quite bitter finish. A nice Black IPA I could certainly drink more of, but I’d still prefer it less roasted. 121116

Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
50 cl Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a cherry coloured edge and a chunky tan head. Pretty lively. Floral, rosewater, perfumy, tropical fruit, veg aroma. Nice... Medium to light body, fine carbonation. Good balance of sweet ipa flavours and darker malts. Citrusy lemon and grapefruit as well as some pineapple sit alongside bitter coffee, a touch of choc and a little treacle toffee. Sizeable bitterness and it’s dry. Nice.
