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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 26, 2013
On tap at the newly opened World Beer Museum in Osaka. 650 yen for 300ml served in a stemmed glass with the breweries logo on it. It poured a lovely inky black with a tan head, was served too cold though. The aroma was pretty weak at first but as it warmed up you started to get more coffee notes over the sweet malty base. The flavor started off coffee, then chocolate malt with a burnt bitter chocolate finish. Quite nice to drink and one of the cheapest things on tap so pretty decent.
