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.

Lähes musta olut kohtalaisella ruskeanbeigellä vaahdolla, joka jää pienenä puolen sentin kerroksena oluen pinnalle pysyvästi. Jättää myös hieman pitsiä. Tuoksu varsin paahteisen maltainen, saaristolaisleipäinen ja oikeastaan yllättävän toimiva. Maku ensituntumalta varsin kermaisen linnunmaitoisella suutuntumalla sisältää paahteisuutta, ruisleipää ja ripauksen kahvia, joka vie kokonaisuuden hieman katkerampaan loppuliukuun. Tuoksun perusteella olisi odottanut vielä täyteläisempää ja makeampaa kokonaisuutta, mutta tämä on maitokauppaolueksi oikeastaan yllättävänkin laadukas ja toimiva tuotos.

Turtles (2292) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2016
Keg @ Vinárna U Sudu, Prague. Pours very dark with a creamy, long lasting, khaki head, good lacing. Looks like a Guinness. Sweet and roasted aroma, milk chocolate and coffee. Mid-dry and light mouthfeel, mild carbonated. Roasted and chalky taste, milk chocolate, cocoa, black coffee and caramel. Creamy mid-sweet finish.

mjs (6739) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2016
(Keg at Tlustá Koala, 20160613) The beer poured nearly black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, chocolate and grass. Palate was rather full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, caramel, sweetness, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt, malty and bitter. Quite decent schwarz.

ThreeCats (880) - ISRAEL - APR 18, 2016
Black with nice tan head and ruby highlights. Aroma has a ton of vanilla, sweet notes and a bit of roast. Taste is a bit acrid with roast notes and a bit of sweetness. Not the best example of the style I’ve ever tasted.

Towey1989 (2123) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Keg at Beer Museum Pub, Prague. A deep brown colour with a thick, foamy beige head. Aroma of roasted barley (like biscuit) some treacle, slight smoke and subtle nuts. Taste of roasted malts, treacle, caramel, some nuts, slight chocolate, a little smoke and late grain. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, roasted, chocolate bitterness in the finish. What a surprising schwarzbier, more like a stout. Roasty, chocolatey, treacley with a decent bitter finish.
