Elephant dung beer sells out: 'Chocolate stout' comes from animal waste

Elephant dung beer sells out: 'Chocolate stout' comes from animal waste, Elephant dung beer sells out in minutes after its debut in Japan. The Drinks Business reports April 17 that the cool one called Un, Kono Kuro, is made with coffee beans taken from the dung of elephants. It was introduced to the public April 1.

"Chocolate stout" is what the Sankt Gallen brewery calls the beer, minus the actual chocolate. Coffee beans in the beer come from elephant waste supplied by the animals at Thailand’s Golden Triangle Elephant Foundation. The beans cost over US$100 per 35 grams.

The taste is described as initial bitterness before sweetness takes over, Mr. Sato of RocketNews24 shared.

“After downing the last drop, slowly rising from my throat and mouth was that afterglow," he said. "The combination of bitter and sweet stayed fresh and lingered in my head. It was a familiar aroma that accompanied me through the entire beer.”

Mr. Sato had a rather in-depth description of the beer.

“For some time after I could still feel as if my body was saturated with that warm scent," he said. "Luckily there were two more bottles left.”

Last December, elephant dung coffee was available for $50 a cup. Read more about that HERE.

The new concept of elephant dung beer and coffee is taking over in some regions of the world. Do they sound like a prestigious drinks to you?
