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 (4472) - 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.

AshtonMcCobb (2605) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours opaque black with a generous head - looks like a stout in fact. Nose of toffee and a hint of cream. The taste has loads of toffee, perhaps rolling into praline or Crunchie Bar. The palate is medium to rich in taste and texture with a long but elegant tangy finish. Overall, good beer, not what i expected in terms of style.
