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 (4625) - 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.

Bottle from trade with mmahut - many thanks Marek! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roasted grains. Taste of grains, bread, malt and torf. Thin and rotten finish. Not my kind of beer.

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.

MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2014
Quite a simple black one with an easy going soul. Some coffee mixed up with a bit of caramel and bit chicken broth. Not that bad but nothing special at all.
