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.

Bottled (at Tuulensuu, Tampere). Quite much pitch black colour with a mediumsized longlasting off-white to beigeish head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, some slight chocolate as well as some dark berries. Flavour is being quite similar with also some mild smoked wet wooden notes to it. A rather wellbalanced Stout.

33 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and slight breadish. Roasted, light liqourice and light yeasty. Light acidic and bitter to phenolic. Lasting dark malty to roasted/breadish finish.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
Excellent pour of slightly brown head, nearly black body. Aroma is mostly, barley, some alcohol, some spice. Taste is a smooth mix of dark barley and just a bit of spice; very smooth, very drinkable. No complexity, but it would make a good session beer.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
Well made but unspectacular. Has all the necessary parts to make a decent stout - roast, mild chocolate, low hops - but not a drink that will get you excited.

The french Guinness :-) A stunning little beer. Only 4.5% ABV but great character. Smoked perfume, roasted malt and nice bitter finish

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Interesting character and highly quaffable buckwheat beer. Bottle from a shop in Normandy somewhere. Mild nose of chocolate and roast malt, with notes of berries and cola. Attractive... very dark brown, essentially plain black, with a beige cap. Fairly serious bitterness with a light impression of sweetness that connects with that chocolate tone throughout. Overall pretty dry and well attenuated. I like the reasonable abv. Tasty, very drinkable stuff.

Maltador (63) - Paris, FRANCE - JAN 10, 2010
A very interesting beer with pronounced bitterness. Loaded with buckwheat. Very strong flavor despite its 4.5 abv. Not really a stout for me. Moreover french are able to make more interesting stout (Bercloise Stout, Fleurac noire, Noire de Slack...). Interesting anyway

zvikar (3370) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2009
Thanks Naam, pours reddish black with a huge tan head that stays forever, aroma of toffee, caramel, nuts, vanilla and butter, flavor is like a malt beer with some strong nutty, toffee flavors, roasted malt and cola, quite unique, more towards the baltic porter, medium bodied round mouthfeel.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Dark brown. Sweet and light roasted malt bouquet. The carbonation lightens mouth feel. A touch of bitterness with a hint of fruitiness. This beer is more like a brown beer than a stout, but not bad.
