COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ELENN DU. A base de sarrasin cultivé en Bretagne (appelé aussi blé noir) et d’orge maltée, cette bière brune puissante, de 4,5° d’alcool, laisse découvrir sa délicate amertume sous sa mousse fine et dense... Vous imaginerez alors les grands champs de fleurs blanches du sarrasin qui illuminent le paysage breton en juillet et août. La Telenn Du (Harpe Noire en français) sera servie de préférence dans une coupe ou un grand verre ballon Conditionnée en bouteilles de 33 cl et 75 cl.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle in a small restaurant in Paris, shared with mom. Clear dark brown with a medium brown head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma along with wood, mild smoked fruity or apple tree along with mild fruity yeast esters. Flavor is medium sweet with a light roasted bitterness. Quite good.

[ASPETTO] marrone scuro, opaca, residuo nel fondo bottiglia [SCHIUMA] color nocciola, fine e compatta, buona presenza e persistenza [OLFATTO] non impattante,ma con una chiara impronta che ricorda cereali tostati ed un tocco di affumicato sul fondo [GUSTO] sapori ancora di cereali, rimane anche la sensazione tostata mentre l’affumicato sembra scomparire. Una tocco astringente compare a metà strada per un finale secco e tendente a note amare [TEXTURE] corpo medio, soavizzato dai cereali, ricorda la consistenza di una oatmeal stout, poco carbonata [COMMENTO FINALE] una birra di grano saraceno non male, che ricorda molto una stout, con note torrefatte ben gestite ed equilibrate. Morbida in bocca, comunque leggera e piacevolmente secca e amara nel finale. Una bretone promossa.. Merce rara!

erickok (3798) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 28, 2011
Black bodied and tan head. Low carbonation. Fairly rich aroma of milk chocolate, some smoke, nutmeg, bit of toffee and rye. Nice. Body is a bit disappointing, quite thin and bit as full flavoured as the nose indicates. Needs to warm up to reveal more complexities. Gets some stout like qualities. Tasty and interesting, but not world changing. (33cl bottle)

Metalchopz (2407) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
Originally rated October 2005. Ok... last of the 8 beers my girlfriend brought back from her trip to Europe. Best before date is 31/03/07. Pours a deep brown-red with a creamy tanned head that has decent retention. Some patchy lace is left. The aroma is mostly of Belgian yeast, with hints of spices. Wow ! Did not expect that. A smoky kick right up front. Definitely is more of a rauchbier, than a stout. The buckwheat comes through in the finish. Hints of molasse are also found much later in the aftertaste. Very nice different light beer for a dark ale.

Not much aroma. A bit of woodyness and farmhouse. Pours opaque black with a light brown head. Falvour is rustic and funk barnyard. A little bit of roastiness.

humlelala (1041) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 (75 cl from La Tapenalgue, Vannes) Pours a clear, dark brown with rich, off-white head that laces the glass. Pleasant aroma of caramel, brown sugar and smoke. Oily on the palate, full-bodied, lively carbonation with a sweet finish. The taste is mildly bitter with moderate sweetness. Girlfriend says: "It’s a bit watery but in a pleasant way."

Opaque black beer, thin white head. Short lived. Smooth sour malt with a hint of roastiness. Subtle licorice. Palate is very slightly soft. Minerally carbonation. A light stout - tasty and drinkable.
