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)

sayravai (4707) - 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 (35904) - 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 (25063) - 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 IPAs with a little more residual sweetness - this is simply too dry. 020412

YanniVampiro (9) - Leonforte, ITALY - MAR 31, 2012 does not count
Inferior to its Golden counterpart, this Cascadian ale suffers on some lack of balance between the toastiness of malts and the hopping; making of it more of an hopped stout than a Black IPA. Russian Roulette Black IPA lacks a bit of personality, I think the brewers might have dared more.
