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.

tbonde (133) - DENMARK - MAR 14, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 On tap@Jazzcup Copenhagen. Dark brown, almost black, with light brown head. Aroma of roast malt. Taste of even more roasted malt in a very agreeable way. Tones of liqourice, bread and subdued hop. Not sweet like other dark beers and with a nice bitterness in the aftertaste...again dominated by perfectly roasted malt. Dark beers are not normally my favourite, but I like this one. Has traits of porter, yet it is clearly a schwarzbier.
