Sankt Gallen Brewery is using beans found in elephant poop to create Un, Kono Kuro.
Usually people talk about aftertaste when drinking beer but with Un, Kono Kuro the word afterglow is, according to guyism, much more appropriate
After downing the last drop, slowly rising from my throat and mouth was that afterglow. 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
For some time after I could still feel as if my body was saturated with that warm scent.
They’re so proud of the process that they actually put a picture of an elephant taking a dump on the label. So how does it taste? As with many seemingly ridiculous ideas, it somehow worked out well
According to one reviewer, “When I poured it into a glass the coffee-like aroma continued to build it was relaxing like an easy Sunday morning. 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.
