Oh Shit!

Beer made from elephant dung 'sells out in minutes'

A Japanese brewery has created a beer made from elephant dung.

The unusual beverage, which uses coffee beans that have passed through an elephant, went on sale on April Fools' Day and sold out within minutes.

There are no plans for the brewery Sankt Gallen to create another run of the drink, which was described as a coffee stout.

Tasting the drink, Mr. Sato told RocketNews24: "After taking my first sip there was an initial bitterness that got washed over by a wave of sweetness. Following that, a mellow body rolled in and spread out through my mouth.

"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."

The creation follows on from elephant dung coffee,
which sold for $1,100 per kilogram.
