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.

Hatte eigentlich eine schwarze Katastrophe erwartet, doch herausgekommen ist ein recht würziges Schwarzbier, das mit Kaffee und Röstaromen sehr gut leben kann. Stellenweise ist es sogar erfrisched und süffig. Gar nicht mal so schlecht.

Bottle from trade with Calisky - many thanks, Fred! The beer has got a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of torf, woods and roasted grains. Taste of dry roasted rye and grains, woods, leaves, bitter coffee and malt. Dry finish with an intense stout character. Earthy. Good one.

eduardovl (1475) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Pours a dark brown/black colour with a nice and dense foam head. Medium retention and some lacings left S: Smells oak. Nice sweet smell. Candy sugar, caramel and roasted malts. Reminded me a whiskey or a good port wine. T: Woody taste. Quite smooth. In fact, it tastes like it was bit stronger. Difficult to imagine that it’s only 4.5% ABV beer M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Moderate on sweet and bitterness O: Definitely a drinkable beer. I could easily drink "half crate" of it... :p [ BA Review @ 10/23/2009 ]

Borresteijn (7491) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
33cl Bottle, bought in Paris, thanks Manon! Almost black colour, light-beige head. Aroma of aspartame, some dark fruits, hint of coffee/mocha, dusty. Flavour is very watery, some roasted malts, coffee, hint of mocha, chocolate, light-bitter finish. As said, even for the ABV this is very watery. Not a bad beer though.

Bouteille 33cl, BB 11/04/2016. Courtesy of and shared with Cécile. Brune foncée, col beige. Arôme offre un bouquet agréable de grains restant léger mais sur des effluves de grillés grâce à l’usage de ce blé noir si caractéristique. En rétro-nasal, un houblonné léger se fait présent et ici aussi, dans un style noble. Palais est bien axé sur la malté avec une petite alternance torréfiée. Petite astringence, le tout oscillant entre cara-grillé voire léger chocolaté. Je trouve en retrait une once de pomme caramélisée, venant peut-être de la levure.

Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
’Buckwheat stout’ from Bretagne with light beige, creamy, thin but stable head and very dark, almost black colour with wine-red hue, clear. Grainy aroma with sourish buckwheat touch, creamy but thin mouthfeel, lightly sweet with soft roasted bitterness in the finish. Not too bad but something tells me using buckwheat in a stout could have lead to better results than this.

gegwilson (3803) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Part of a pack from a French supermarket. Pours mahogany with a decent cream head. The taste is a bit odd. Burnt cardboard with some sharp spiciness. Thin bodied too. Improves as it warms with some chocolate notes coming through.

3.2
jmgreenuk (10006) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle courtesy of a friend. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin broken light tan head. The aroma is sweet malt. The flavour is light sweet with a a light watery sweet fruit malt earthy palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.

3.4
VDuquerroux (1869) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown beer with light brown hues at the bottom of the glass. Large creamy beige head with a good retention. Roasty smoky aroma, coffee, herbs. Light sweet, light bitter with an acid note. Light body, medium texture, good carbonation, sweet roasty finish, acid note. Overall, a good roasty beer, refreshing, pleasant to drink.
