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)

JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2012
No gushing, but pouring turns into a differed build-up of towering and then overflowing very lacy cream-tan head over virtually black beer. Intense dry hops, much ureum, and a backbone of sweetish caramel, intensified by the ureum - as some sticky fluid dried up. Very bitter, hopoils galore, but also a hint at molasses - just the hopoverload precludes any sweetness to be perceived. Dry straw, hopbailes. Spritzy, very slick to sticky, oily, well-bodied; Black hopbomb. Don’t go looking for subtleties.

500. Pours a cloudy dark, dark amber with a dense and wooly off-white head and spotty, drippy lace. Big fresh floral nose with light orange-blossom notes. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel and oranges on the mid palate. Crisp bright resiny finish.

daje (4436) - NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle at Schouskjelleren, april 2012. Black body, creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, pine, milk chocolate and lemon peel, quite nice! Taste is very hoppy, peach, grass, flowers, with coffee, licorice and a good bitterness. Acidic and bitter finish with a subtle roasty touch.

3.1
hirigalzkar (3203) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a fluffy off white head. Citrus and coffee in aroma. Very bitter! Coffee bitterness and hop bitterness at the same time. Some orange. Quite boring.

3.5
finol (3428) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle at Bishops Folkungagatan. Pours black with a light beige head. Dosn´t taste very black at all, guessing the bright one tastes the same! Malty, bitter and lots of orange peel.

3.6
joergen (28425) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle at Bishops Arms København. Black coloured with a medium sized lasting beige head. Hoppy and light roasted aroma of caramel, pine needles and grapefruits. Hoppy flavour of pine needles and grapefruits with roasted notes. Dry roasted finish.

3.6
BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2012
50cl (Evil Twin version), new exclusive Danish collab. brew Anno 2012, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex bitter brew, bitter/roasted and slightly fruity/woody, very bitter, yet balanced, hazy black-brown, good head, good brew, yet expensive, but original concept!

2.4
mcberko (18081) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
500mL bottle, pours black with a voluminous light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, some powdery cocoa, lightly roasted espresso and harsh citrus hops. Flavour isn’t nearly as pleasant as the nose - it’s the epitome of unbalanced, with ridiculously harsh citrus hops, torched / burnt malts, burnt coffee, tar and ashtray. Very dry and absurdly unbalanced and bitter. Finishes, burnt, bitter and ashy. I don’t understand the average rating for this one, and I am a hophead. Quite badly constructed really.

3.5
rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2012
Aroma: Smelling "hoppy", grass, fruits, orange.
Appearance: A black beer, a brown small head, little lacing but good curtains.
Flavor: Starting sweet, burnt bread, strong licorice, soy sauce and grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Little carbonation, coarse texture with a good body, a dry finish.
Overall: A lot in this one, somewhat inharmonious.
Note: Bottle 500 ml at De Klomp

4.2
stefannilssons (1580) - 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.
