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.

Light aroma of dark malt. Thin flavor of roasted malt. But still pretty dull in taste. I had assumed power in this beer. But there was not. Weak taste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Karol (641) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2013
bottled bought recently at Tesco. I have had this beer several times in my life, bottled and tapped. For me, this is one of the best dark lagers I have ever drunk. Dark chocolate, espresso and rostaed malt dominate this beer. A nice mild minor bitter finish besides the afore mentioned characteristics. Overall very drinkable and an enjoyable beer.

Sällan saknar man anledningar att dricka öl, men Merlin Cerny avlövar en raskt pĺ alla goda skäl (goda i minst trippel bemärkelse). Här räcker det inte att tänka till tvĺ gĺnger innan man sprätter kapsylen. Det är ännu omtvistat huruvida nĺgon har druckit detta öl av fri vilja eller om alla incidenter är sprungna ur okunskap och/eller framtvingade av olyckliga omständigheter.
