COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original. Merlin je výjimečný ležák, který lze pro jeho velmi tmavou barvu označit za opravdu černé pivo. Náš sládek jej vaří podle speciální receptury a při jeho výrobě používá vedle tří druhů sladu, křišťálově čisté vody z hlubinného jezera a kvalitního chmele rovněž pražený ječmen. Výsledkem je magická kombinace chutí s výraznou hořkostí připomínající stout, kterou ocení každý opravdový znalec.

jmgreenuk (3591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Tap at the Prague Beer Museum at Náměstí Míru Prague. Poured a clear dark brown with a long lasting off white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is sugary burnt caramel treacle and roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a roasted malt hop light liqourice bitter palate and a long butterscotch toffee bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

330ml can provided by djoeye. Clear rosewood coloured body. Slowly diminishing tan-coloured head. Spotty lacing. Roasted dark malty nose joined by dried fruits. Roasted malty flavours, hints of prunes. Bittersweet malty end, ashy dry. Medium bodied. True to the style (shared with Finn, Tromsř 05.03.2014).

MarkoNm (257) - SLOVENIA - MAR 9, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Pours a very dark, clear color with a medium off-white head and a decent retention. There are some roasted malts in the aroma as well as a little chocolate and what I liked, no coffee. The taste is sweet, roasted only slightly bitter in the aftertaste. Smooth but sadly slightly watery.

Boks 0,33. Spandert av Rune og delt under seanse i WCveien 5 Mar 14. Veldig dyp amber. Hřyt mokkafarget skum med kniplingslacing. Begge deler varer. God sjokoladearoma. Smaken er sjokolade & rřstet malt. Blir litt třrr etter hvert.

Peter_L (475) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2014
Burk frĺn SB. Brunsvart vätska med högt kaffefärgat slum. Tydliga dofter av säd och bröd. Även arom av tobak och choklad finns. Bra balanserad smak av maltsötma och beska. Fyllig munkänsla. Nĺr inte riktigt fram till klassledarna men milsvida bättre än ett flertal andra.

elosop (122) - SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Detta är tydligen en schwarzbier enl beskrivningen pĺ RB. Pĺ burken stĺr det Dark Lager. Utseendet är mörkt rödbrun med lite skum. Smaken nästan söt o inte det minsta humlig. Hyggligt lĺng, lite dyig eftersmak. Ej speciellt god för att vara tjeckisk.

Can from Systembolaget. Cola color. Roasted grain, burned toast, sweet malt. Full flavoured, balanced. A pleasant beer, very decent session stuff. Dry hoppy finish.
