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.

probstblueribbon (3297) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
33 cl bottle shared by Lubiere (merci!), served cold in a tulip glass. 08JL12.

App.: Deep brown-black with an ashen tan head. Aroma: Metallic, iron, tangy coffee, fruitiness, minerals, faint ash, tight (maybe due to temperature). Palate: Medium+ body, creamy, prickly effervescence. Flav.: Still metallic, a little fruit, caramel notes, hints of chocolate, a little grapey, odd; dry with minimal bitterness and a not unpleasant roasted malt finish.

Kinda messy.

drowland (6831) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2012
9/17/12. 12oz bottle thanks to Steve at Kickback’s! Some random French beer he had sitting around - Todd split the bottle with me! Dark brown pour with a small khaki head. Mild chocolate and milky aroma with a hint of roast and some dustiness and metal. Light chocolate and milky/dusty flavor as well, like a light milk stout, with some caramel and roast. I’m with Todd - it’s like a mediocre homebrew of sorts. Eh.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle, consumed in April 2008. Very dark brown - near black with a slight ruby tinge when held up to the light. Thin but lasting beige head. Some light roasty notes in the aroma with a little cocoa too. More fruity on the palate. Finishes quite dry. Interesting and appealing. Plenty happening for 4.5%.
